This year we have decided to combine the vegetables and fruits in the weekly share pick-ups, and offer a full or partial option. Droughts, late freezes and wet springs have made meeting the demands of the fruit shares more difficult.
Vegetables will include lettuces, onions, beans, beets, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, sweet corn, kale, carrots, summer & winter squash, potatoes, root veggies, Brussels sprouts and more, based on what is being harvested.
The fruit will lead off with juicy strawberries in June and then progress to cherries, blueberries, raspberries, melons, peaches, apricots, plums, pears, apples, grapes and more, from our Niagara County and Eden Valley farmers.
The produce is a mix of conventional, low spray, no spray and when possible, organic vegetables and fruits. Many of the farmers follow Cornell’s IPM guidelines. (Integrated Pest Management promotes safe, least-toxic solutions to minimize insects, plant diseases, weeds, and pesticide problems.)
Term’s & Conditions
- Share pick-up day will be Tuesdays or Thursdays from 7am to 7pm. Please choose one day. If you are unable to pick up your share, you may designate someone else to pick it up for you. Due to storage limitations and perishable nature of the produce, if you miss a week, you will forfeit that week’s share.
- All efforts will be made to offer a variety of weekly produce, however adverse seasonal weather and harvesting issues may require substitutions and adjustments.
