The weekly harvest share includes an assortment of at least 5-6 different items in each share.

The share sizes and share variety will vary throughout the season due to growing conditions and the weather.

A full share is designed for a couple who eats fresh produce daily, or a larger family who incorporates vegetables into their diet several days a week.  It will be about twice the size of the small share.  A small share is designed for a couple, a couple with young children, or a family that is just beginning to incorporate fresh vegetables into their daily diet.  Below are some specific amounts that will be included in the small share when these items are in full season:

  1. •Tomatoes, 2 pounds
  2. •Beans, 1 pound
  3. •Greens, 1 bunch
  4. •Potatoes, 1 quart (about 2 pounds)
  5. •Lettuce, 1 head
