A Farm Share program is based on the idea that you are ‘buying shares’ into a farmers crop. Each week, the farmer harvests their product from their fields and provides you with a box of vegetables, fruits and herbs. Each week is different due to the growing season of the vegetables. It is a great way to try new things!
