many people does a share feed?
It really depends on how many fresh veggies your
household consumes on a weekly basis. We have
some 2-3 person households that use all of a
share, but typically it fits best with a
household of 4-6, or two smaller households
going together to buy a share. Many members take
advantage of the more bountiful harvests during
the later part of the season by freezing
vegetables in soup stock, or otherwise
preserving them for use during the winter.
How do the free U-pick items work?
There are lots of herbs (including basil) and
greens such as chard, collards, a few different
kinds of kale, and mustard greens that members
can pick. Again, many members take advantage of
this by freezing them for later use. This really
increases the value of your share, since, unlike
box delivery services, these do not count as an
“item” in your share. Members can pick a bouquet
of flowers too. Flowers are available from
mid-July through September.
