Welcome to Fair Shares Week 1

We'll see all Full, Mini, ODD-week Half, and Trial Shares on Wednesday or Thursday.

Thanks to our returning members (some of you for all 13 seasons!) and welcome to our new members and trial shares. We appreciate your trust in us and we will do our best to keep a safe, plentiful, delicious food source available to you and your families. This page has a lot of info that we want returning, new and potential members to read. It will help us not have to repeat ourselves. It will help us not have to repeat ourselves.

PLEASE read this whole message for answers to your questions before you email us; we beg you. 

Read the Weekly Emails
These weekly newsletters are how we communicate important information to you!
Especially since we are not having face to face conversations for the forseeable future.

Notes on Trades and Orders
Please wait until you receive the newsletter before adding items to your cart. 
IF YOU ARE RECEIVING A SHARE AND YOU ALREADY ADDED ITEMS TO YOUR CART, WE HAVE DELETED THEM BECAUSE THE SYSTEM DOES NOT ALLOW US TO ADD THE TRADABLE SHARE ITEMS TO A CART THAT IS NOT EMPTY. Sorry, we don't have time to update the store until we get all the deliveries in and put away. THEN we send the newsletter. Thanks for your patience.

We fill your carts in Farmigo, then we send the newsletter when we've gotten the store updated. Note that the share clipboards in the newsletter 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, and you are welcome to order extras. If you are trading for meat or fish that is priced per pound, read the description to understand how it is packaged and how the price will be adjusted. You may want to email (reply to this email) to let us know your intention if you're looking for a specific amount and it isn't clear in the item description.

Full Trial Shares, please check the "FSC" clipboard below to find your share list.
Mini Trial Shares, please check the "MINI" clipboard below to find your share list.

Please read the important info about your pickup site below, and follow our directions to help keep everyone safe and healthy.

 

Read this before you come to pick up, please! If you are sending someone to get your share, either share it with them or read it and give them instructions. Thanks.Read more

Escarole and Endive

These two greens are in the chicory family, and add a sharp bitter character to salads, but mellow and sweeten up a bit when cooked. If you aren't a big fan of the bitter greens, I suggest cooking them to minimize the intensity. They are delicious braised slowly in a broth or caramelized with a high heat saute with onions and garlic (or green onions or garlic scapes, in season). endive.png Read more

CSA-eating

There is a learning curve to eating locally and seasonally, so give yourself and your family the time to figure it out. It's worth learning because it can save you time and money, make you a more creative cook, and teach you to appreciate your food more as you savor the delicious quality of produce at it's peak of flavor when it's in season. MiniShare.adj_.jpg As I look at recipes, I automatically adjust them according to what is in my refrigerator and cupboard. I've learned to cook according to what I have available. As you learn to assess what you... Read more
Companion has been our reliable bread source since day one, and we are ever grateful to Josh Allen, who has also been a loyal member all along too! We have a new list of items available from Companion, and they have discontinued a number of our favorites (most of the items that we used to get on a regular basis). We're trying out their new items (some are just new sizes or shapes), and hope you let us know which you prefer. Our onine ordering schedule creates a risk that we will run out of bread for Wednesday orders, inc which case we will attempt to send frozen. If we don't have frozen and ...Read more
Don't make a trip to the grocery store; pick up your milk when you get your food from Fair Shares! You can set up a standing weekly or bi-weekly order so that we will be sure to have your milk for you (you may cancel at anytime). Feel free to place a one-time order to see how you like it.Read more
