Summer Shares

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

 

We will start summer share pick-ups on June 4 and June 7, 2018

 

Members pick up at the farm once a week.

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

2018 Share Prices
Small: $530 - $25.24 per week
Medium: $725 - $34.52 per week
Large: $950 - $45.24 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 2017 , the retail value of a small share was 50% higher than the cost! In 2016, that number was 56%, and in 2015 it was 70%. 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. For an additional $125, you can have some pick-your-own done for you. We will harvest a selection of the pick-your-own offerings during the more productive parts of the season (14 or 15 weeks) and have them waiting for you at the pick-up desk. Availability is limited.

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

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 very late in the season, produce volume is lower than the remainder of the season.

What Will I Get in my Summer Share?

As part of a project with NOFA-VT, we took a photo of a sample small share for every week of the 2017 summer CSA. Check it out!
