Members at Goodwill® at Homefields Farm receive a weekly share of the harvest beginning in June and ending in November. A member can sign-up to receive a full or half share. A full share is intended for a family of four and a half share is intended for two individuals.
For the 2013 growing season, produce pick ups start on June 6, 7 and 8. For the first time, the farm has sold all of its shares prior to the start of the harvesting season. Though farm shares have been sold out for 2013, the farm will try to accommodate additional requests when possible.
Members come to the farm each week at any of the following times to pick-up their share:
All the fruits and vegetables are picked, washed and ready for selection in clearly labeled bins. A written list tells shareholders exactly how much of each item they can select each week. A wonderful variety of fruits and vegetables are available each week. Members are also invited to pick fresh herbs and flowers.
This has been our first year at the farm. I joined at the recommendation of another member. I wanted my 3 year old to know where his food comes from. Towards the end of the first week, he started asking when we are "going to the farm?" He loved being able to pick the food out of the bins as well as going into the fields and picking his own fruits and veggies. Hi favorite has been the blueberries (which are the best we've ever tasted) and the grapes, which never made it out of the car as he ate them on the way home. We are joining next year as a full share and splitting with another small family who have seen how excited Keegan and I have been with the farm. Thank you so much for all you do and allowing us to show our children where our food comes from and what it takes to grow into deliciousness.
