LEAP Farm Share Progam

 

New in 2017, LEAP is working with local farmers to offer a farm share program. If you are familiar with Good Food Good People (GFGP)’s CSA Farm Share, then LEAP’s farm share type and offerings will look very familiar!  Why?  Because GFGP decided to scale back their operations and LEAP is taking the helm. In order to serve the great local food eater and local food maker community, LEAP is offering a pared-down version of the GFGP-style farm share.

All shares are filled on “first paid — first served” basis. Reserve (register and pay for) your shares early, before our program is full!  We will have a waiting list, as needed.

All shares may be purchased alone except for Egg Shares, which must accompany another main season share. You can pay for multiple shares at once, or individually, but each season’s shares MUST be paid in full by April 17, 2017.

Additional Farm Share Details

  • The SNAPShare Program (discounted share via SNAP-EBT) is only available at the West End Community Market pick-up site.
  • Two vacation dates are built into the cost of each share.  If you do not select your dates, your vacation dates will be the last two weeks of the season. To change your vacation dates, notify the Farm Share Coordinator at least one (1) week in advance of your planned absence.
  • If you miss a pick-up (not one of your 2 selected vacation dates), your share from that date will be donated.
  • Changes to share purchases and pick-up sites are free-of-charge before the registration deadline. After registration deadline, there is a $15 fee per change.
  • After you submit your Farm Share registration, you will receive an email to confirm your registration/payment. We will send an email weekly to remind shareholders about pick up and to talk about what is in the share that week (write email legibly!)
  • If you have questions, contact LEAP Farm Share Coordinator  (farmshare@leapforlocalfood.org/leap or 540.492.5311)
