Picking Up Your Share

Peas

For full details on coming to the farm, have a look at our 2014 Member Guide.

All of our distribution is at the farm in Burlington’s Intervale on Monday and Thursday 3-6:30pm during the summer season. Many crops are available only as pick-your-own, such as berries, cut flowers, fresh herbs, green beans. You can visit the farm to do your pick-your-own any time that works for you – even by moonlight or headlamp, if you are so inclined.

Butternut squashIt’s a good idea to bring smaller bags for loose items like lettuce mix or potatoes, and a larger shopping bag or basket to easily collect your share. Some members also bring an empty jar or yogurt container of water for keeping cut flowers fresh on the way home. We provide shears for cutting herbs and flowers, and pint or quart containers for picking berries, peas, and so on. The main pick up area is under a shelter, but it’s always a good idea to check the weather and come prepared with boots and rain gear for picking in the field.

Red cherry tomatoIf you’re not able to make it to a pick up, you can either send a friend in your place, come to the farm on the other pick up day during the same week, or pick up a double share the previous or following week on your regular day. Contact Kathie to make arrangements for your bread, cheese, or egg share. If you’d like to request a bagged share, please call 658-2919 x2 before 6pm on your pickup day and your share will be left in the cheese cooler.

We encourage you to consider carpooling, cycling, and using other means to reach the farm. Each time you do, our Greenstamps program rewards points that can be used toward extra produce or partner products.
