Distribution Sort System
When you pick up your vegetable share, you “sort” your own share. The farmers deliver the produce in bulk (a box of broccoli, a box of carrots, etc.) and provide a list of what is in the share each week. Shareholders put together his/her weekly share from that list. This sort system helps keep the share cost down and encourages shareholder involvement.
If you would like to share a share, we ask that you choose a primary shareholder who will be responsible for making payments to the farm. If you enroll for half a share, your membership will be on hold until you can find a partner. The share must be picked up all at once and then divided after. You can also divide your share by picking up on alternate weeks.
