Summer Shares

Summer share runs 21 weeks from early June through the end of October.

Members pick up at the farm once a week.

Pickups are on Mondays and Thursdays from 3-6:30.

2017 Share Prices
Small: $500 - $23.81 per week

Supported Shares are available to qualifying households at half price, until filled. Learn more about supported shares.

ICF members get a great deal on their vegetables year-in and year-out. In 2016, the retail value of a share was 56% higher than the cost. In 2015, that number was 70%, and in 2014, it was 58%. For more information on the value of an ICF share, and the ways we try to make it affordable for everyone, see our page on share value.

The Particulars

Most vegetables are already harvested, washed, and set out in our pole barn for members to select themselves.

Some crops are available only as pick-your-own, and are in the fields immediately surrounding the pickup barn.

Supplemental products like bread, cheese, and eggs can be pre-ordered, or purchased on the day of pickup (while supplies last).

For all the details, download a Summer Share Guide.

What Size Share is Right for Me?

Your particular diet, household size, and budget are the primary factors that should guide your choice of CSA share, but here are a few things to consider in choosing a share.

  • A Large Share is about twice the volume of a Small Share, with the Medium about 1.5 times a Small Share.

  • About 70% of our CSA members opt for a Small Share.

  • You can change your share size at any point during the season and we will adjust the price accordingly.

  • Very early and late in the season produce volume is lower than the remainder of the season.
