Although Stearns Farm does not design its shares for splitting, we have always had sharers who like to make these arrangements. This year, many sharers who have purchased an alternate-week share in the past have expressed interest in splitting a share next summer but want help finding a partner. We have created a post on our Facebook page to provide a way for sharers who are interested in share-splitting to find each other.
Stearns Farm is offering this matchmaking service only to facilitate connections. We consider share splitting arrangements to be private, and we will not provide any assistance beyond offering this place for sharers to identify themselves as interested in share-splitting. Please read our “Splitting Shares” FAQ to make sure you understand our share-splitting policies.
How to use the Share Splitter Matchmaking Service:
- “Like” the Stearns Farm CSA page on Facebook
- Find the “2017 Summer Share Splitter Matchmaking” post that is pinned to the top of the page
- Add a comment to the post with some information about how you would like to split your share. For example, if you want to alternate weeks, say “alternate.” If you have some other arrangement in mind, such as splitting each week’s share, describe it briefly.
- Use private messages to contact each other and make your own arrangements. Stearns Farm will not take part in any conversations between individual sharers. What you decide is up to you, as long as your arrangement abides by the farm’s policies.
Note that you must pay any outstanding balances for the 2016 season before you can purchase a 2017 summer share.
If you have questions about share-splitting that are not answered in the FAQ, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
