We're still taking pre - orders for starter herb and vegetable plants from Biver Farms. Select the certified organic plants you'd like from the online store, under the Bedding Plants - Herbs, Flowers, Vegetables category.

Some plants will be three packs, some will be single, and will cost $2.75 each. A few varieties will be in six packs and will cost a little more …

Kale Salad w/Wheat Berries

in Yogurt Caesar Dressing

Kale Salad w/Wheat Berries
Beth Sorrell's Week 4 Recipe

I cooked the wheat berries 2 different ways for this salad. Each time I used 1 cup of wheat berries from Fair Shares and 3 cups water. One batch I cooked in my Instant Pot on manual mode for 35 minutes. Quick release and drain. The other one I toasted the wheat berries on a rimmed cookie sheet in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes and then cooked in a pot on the stove in 3 cups water. The stovetop method took 40 minute…

Baklava from Sedara Sweets

Last week we forgot to enter the baklava in the store, and we still sold more than half of them on premise when we realized it. Those of you who tried them came back for more. If you haven't tried them, you really ought to this week!

5-pack variety baklava boxes are $10 (that's $2 to $3 off retail). Check in the Bakery category.

It's Schlafly Beer Thirty

You can purchase beer from Schlafly's website (linked below) and pick it up at the Mothership or UCity when you come for your share.

Purchase from Schlafly's online system by 10 a.m. Wednesday, and then let us know by adding the Schlafly Beer item in your cart.


Notes on Trades and Orders

If you have questions or an issue to resolve, please email info@fairsahares.org. We get over 400 order confirmation emails in the orders@fairshares.org account and WE DO NOT CHECK THEM, so if you want a reply, use info@fairshares.org, which goes to both Jamie and Sara, and one of us will see it!

The share clipboards below will include the fresh produce on your list, but the cart in your Farmigo account lists only the tradable items in your share. You must spend the total credit value in your cart but you are welcome to buy extra.

Here's a video demo on how to make trades. Note that Farmigo has updated their system to allow you to click certain items in your cart that have variations for you to select. Here's the link to LOGIN.

Please check the descriptions of items! Some things are sold by the pound so the actual price will be different from what's listed in the store. If what's in your bag is not what you were expecting, give it back. If you're at the Mothership, you may be able to choose something else.

Pro Tip: You can browse the store when it's "closed" by logging out of your account.
All members must complete trades and orders by 10:30a.m. Wednesday.
