Current shareholders can sign up for for a 2017 summer share beginning today. To order your share, visit the Stearns Farm online store.
For 2017, Stearns Farm will offer two weekly share options: the Classic Harvest, for households of four or more people, and the Farmer’s Choice, for households with two adults or families with small children. The Classic Harvest share is the new name for our traditional full share. The Farmer’s Choice share replaces the alternate-week share with a weekly share of our best-loved vegetables, berries, herbs and flowers.
Winter shares are now available for purchase in the Stearns Farm online store, through Oct. 31.
The winter share is distributed in two monthly pickups—one each in November and December. The share typically consists of root vegetables (onions, potatoes, beets, carrots, parsnips, celeriac), cabbage, and winter squash that are grown during the summer and stored in our root cellar, as well as fresh greens (spinach, kale, collards).

The farm would use any grant money it receives for community outreach to raise awareness of Stearns Farm’s history and mission.
Happy Autumn (officially)! Sometimes someone else’s poetry says it better than your own words can. Enjoy Mary Oliver’s beautiful words.
