Right now, just the egg, berry , meat and chicken shares have started. (Berries have started? you ask? — Not quite, see our fab farmer Norm grows asparagus, strawberries, peas, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, apples and pumpkins; These crops compose our Greig Farm Berry share. It is mostly berries…but kicks off with an early Spring dose of asparagus). Soon the backyard of the Woods will be filled with strawberries…and then vegetables from MimoMex, and finally fruits from local orchards. You don’t want to miss out….. So sign up today while there is still room!

How to sign upEmail Depending on the day of the week and our work schedule, we will either set up an individual appointment or arrange for you to come during distribution. We will be hosting open-house style  sign ups during all our distributions until we sell out.

What is for sale: 

We have about 30 shares of 200 left. Almost everything is available right now although some shares are on the cusp of selling out and some weeks are super close to being gone. What does that mean? In order to make life easier for our farmers, we need our weekly numbers to be even. In order to do this, we divide our shares into designated weeks, A week & B week and so some weeks will sell out.

[Note – Sometimes the A week price differs from the B week price. This is because the Vegetable Share is 25 weeks long therefore the A week is one week less than the B week. Also, we can add half shares of eggs to anything/everything.]
