Partner with a Local Farm!

Shared Harvest CSA is a winter farm share, which has pickups once/month from late October through February, in Arlington, Canton, JP, Hingham, and Buzzards Bay.  You can sign up now, which best helps the farmers (they are planning, buying supplies, and seeding already for those fall crops) and gives you a discount, and the share pickups begin in the fall.

The excellent farms who collaborate for the Shared Harvest winter share each have their own summer shares, delivered to or located in this area.  Sign up directly with them.

Extended Season Share

Pickups happen one Saturday each month (see sidebar for this year’s pickup dates for your location).  Choose either a 2-month or 3-month option.

Early Signup Discount will show up on the checkout page:  $20 off of a 2-month share, $30 off the 3-month share.  Your spring signup gives the farmers peace of mind.  Thank you!

3 month share (late Oct-Dec) ($270.00)
2 month share (Nov-Dec) ($180.00)
Deep Winter share

January and February.  This type of share works well for people who have more limited storage (and thus can’t stock up in the fall) and for those looking for fresh greens in the later winter months.  Planned share contents:  dried beans, a variety of root vegetables, butternut squash, onions, garlic, popcorn, tomato puree, spinach, claytonia salad greens, other greens depending upon weather/greenhouse conditions.

The $20 discount will show up on the checkout page.  Your spring signup gives the farmers peace of mind.  Thank you!

Jan/Feb ($180.00)

    Hi Jane, I was reading this article and followed the links. I wanted to let you know of an error in your post. You state Reading as a pick up option. The farm states North Reading. They are actually two different towns (vs. different areas of the same town.) FYI!
