This Share delivers local products to help you in your cooking endeavors! If you joined this Share (or if you are curious what is offered) visit the Small Farm Central Cooks Share Choices Store to make your selections. The share cost was added to your account at enrollment when you joined the Share, therefore will be no charge to make these selections even though it is a ‘store’.
The Pastured, Organic Egg Share is supplied by the pastured hens at Grants Family Farm in Essex, MA. The eggs will come every week starting the first week of the regular season (Tuesday, June 6th/Thursday June 8th) and continue for 20 weeks through October 19th & October 24th with no pick-up July 4th.
Cheese Share – Due to popular demand and the oft asked question “Is this a cheese week?”, this year the share offers a different local cheese each week. For those who have chosen “All 20 Cheeses Please”, a different cheese will be waiting every week. For those who have opted for a design your own share, careful reading of the cheese sign out sheet will identify what you are to take each week. Don’t worry, you don’t have to remember what you ordered. The sign-out sheet will tell you if you’re getting cheese on any given week.
Thanks for supporting local beauty! The flower share is slated to begin July 11th/July 12th, and run for 10 weeks, through September 12th/13th.
The flowers will be from Maitland Mountain Farm in Salem, MA and will come in a sturdy mason jar with a little string tied around the mouth. You may opt to bring your own container, and transfer your flowers at the depot, to put your flowers in a plastic bag with a touch of water in the bottom, then use the accompanying string to tie the bag around the stems for transport home, or you can bring the bouquet and jar home and bring the jar back next week. The cost of the flower share is figured assuming the return of the jar.
Mushroom Share – 3 sessions of 6 weeks each starting on week 2, June 13 & 15. Cultivated mushrooms from Fungi Ally in Hadley, MA. Willie Crosby cultivates shitake, oyster, blue oyster, yellow oyster, maitake, and lions mane. The mushrooms are 1/3lb weighed into a paper bag. You will receive a bag for 6 weeks for each session signed up for. The share will be in a cooler in the Specialty Share tent where we also house the eggs, bread, cheese, and flowers. Please sign the sheet to acknowledge receipt of your share.
