Halas Farm Market Farm Share 2017
- 23 November 2016
TO ALL OUR FARM FRIENDS
We will be introducing our Farm Share for the 2017 summer/early fall season.
A Farm Share/CSA is a unique collaboration between the land, the farmer and community members. Members purchase a “farm share” in return for a portion of the harvest throughout the season.
What is a CSA /Farm Share?
A “Farm Share” is a simple idea (very much like buying a magazine subscription) in which a “Member” buys a “Share” of a farmer’s harvest prior to the growing season, and then comes to the farm each week to pick up their “Share” of the farm’s vegetable harvest . Many farm share programs are called “CSA” which stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.”
What A Farm Share Program Is All About:
A Farm Share Program is both an investment and a risk for the farmer and the family who joins. Together we are sharing in the risks and rewards of farming. We have to understand that we are growing in New England, with unpredictable weather, using only natural growing methods for fertility, and against insects, fungi and bacteria. While we are not organically certified we are committed to using safe and ecological growing methods. We take this approach because we believe the potential risks associated with chemicals, fungicides and commercial fertilizers outweigh the benefits.
We will harvest and provide a bountiful supply of produce to each member once a week Mid June through Mid October for a total of 18 weeks.
Harvest quantity, diversity and time frames are entirely weather dependent, which is part of any CSA/FarmShare model, Registered sharers will be notified of start and finish dates.
We will be growing most everything in your share at our farm as well as partnering from time to time with with other local farms to supplement your shares . Our goal is to give you above and beyond what you pay for.
As a Farm Share member you will come to our farm and pick up your pre-packed freshly picked vegetables on a designated day. Your share will include an array of produce that is ready for harvest that week.
