What's in a Share?

Every Week - And Every Season - Is Different

The vegetables in the share change from week to week, but we think you'll find that family size shares are usually about the right amount of vegetables for a family of four for a week, or two vegetarians who mostly eat at home.  Single size shares are a little more than half as much, and are often enough for a couple who eats away from home some, or who has very small children. 

For pickup at the farm, family size shares are $25 per week for 20 weeks, single size shares are $15. Prices differ slightly for pickup in Cedar Rapids, or for half-season shares.
