The Intervale Community Farm Winter Share is our way to keep you fed and full of local organic produce throughout the darker parts of the year. Beginning in November, all manner of root vegetables, cabbages, winter squash, and hardy greens take their place of vegetable fame at the farm. To join, either print and mail our Winter Share Sign-up Form, or use our electronic sign up form.
Four large greenhouses allow us to offer a wide variety of fresh, hardy greens in addition to delicious stored produce. You can see projected availability in our Winter Share Produce Availability Chart. We also have Gerard’s Bread, Does’ Leap Farm Cheese, and Jericho Settlers Farm eggs for sale as options. You will be able to sign up for those items in October.
Winter Share pickup is on alternate Thursdays from 3:00-6:00pm, with half the members on one Thursday, and half coming the following Thursday. We distribute across the road from our summer pick-ups, near our greenhouses, at 282 Intervale Road.
Winter Shares are available in one size, and many people choose to split or share a winter share. For 2016-17, an ICF Winter Share costs $465. Supported Shares ($233; 50% of the regular rate) are available to qualifying households until filled.
