Our 2018 Farm Share is closed. Check back in 2019 for more information on the next farm share.
An investment in local farms, a commitment to healthy food.
A Farm Share is a great way to incorporate fresh local produce into your diet, and to support small farmers in your community. You pay the full cost of your Farm Share at the beginning of a season, and then you pick up your weekly box of food at either the West Broad Farmers Market (Saturdays) or Williams Farm (Fridays).
Our Farm Share is a relationship between our farmer network and our customers, or Farm Share “members.” By purchasing a Farm Share membership, you will be supporting local businesses.
The Fall 2018 Farm Share will run for 12 weeks from September 14th, 2018 to December 7th, 2018. (Skips week of Thanksgiving)
Our Growing Practices
Our growing practices include:
- Record keeping
- Use of organic inputs
- Integrated pest management
What to Expect
Each Farm Share will consist of at least 8 items:
- 6-8 Produce Items
- 1 Partner Product (Bread, Honey, Jam, Etc…)
One Farm Share requires a one-time upfront payment of $300 yielding at least 8 items weekly for a 12 week season. That’s only $25 a week!
Donate a Farm Share
Working with local churches and non-profit organizations to identify individuals and families in need, Athens Land Trust will provide Farm Shares to community members throughout the growing season.
If you would like to participate in our Farm Share Donation program by purchasing a donated share, please see the donation tab when you check out.
The full cost of a donated share (minus sales tax) is a tax-deductible contribution.
