Subsidized shares are given out on the honor system. If you have substantial resources beyond earned income, please be mindful of those who don’t and purchase a full-priced share instead. Family size and income is calculated on all income, not just salary and by the number of people eating the share (whether or not they are related) and those people’s total pre-tax income from all sources.

Although these shares are given on the honor system, the core group reserves the right to ask for supporting documents.

We only offer discounts on the vegetable share at this time.

The subsided shares are half price – the 2017 season cost of a half price share is $265.
