Do you know your grower? We know ours. Our crop shares are hand selected to represent the region’s best fruits, ricknelson-startribvegetables, meats and cheeses, all from small producers who not only practice sustainable and humane farming techniques, but also furnish the kind of top-quality goods you just can’t get from larger commercial operations.

PLEASE NOTE: Crop shares sell out quickly. Order early. Supplies are limited.

Because we rely on Mother Nature to cooperate with us, we hope we can assume the same from you. Please be aware that delivery dates and prices are subject to change. Occasionally, Mother Nature damages the crop such that we are unable to deliver. If that’s the case, we will refund any deposits.
