Details about the Farm Share As an Omnivore Free Choice Member, some weeks you will take home more because you have guests coming, some weeks less because you are traveling or have plans. We just ask that you do not horde food nor feed the neighborhood (unless they all buy shares), but rather take what you will eat that week. Built on this system of trust, we have found it balances out and allows each member to bring home more of your favorites and end up with less waste. Yes, you choose the volume and exact items from the meat, vegetables, eggs and milk that are on offer each week. For most people, this represents a 15-20% discount from farm stand retail prices. Winter too: We offer food stored from the growing season (squash, potatoes, onions, apples, carrots and other root vegetables), some fresh greens, eggs & milk, produce that has been frozen or canned as well as meat. We may add some prepared soups and other dishes made from the food grown and raised on our farm. Fresh Thanksgiving Turkeys are included in the Omnivore’s share. If the Omnivore’s Farm Share is not right for you, we offer a Customized Share. You commit to at least $100/month in purchases of your choice and we give you a 10% discount off our retail prices. You can shop during Thursday’s Farm Share hours or at the Farmers Market. Email with Questions. Our growing principles
