The Stearns Farm website has a new look for 2017! We’ve streamlined our menus and simplified the layout to make information about the farm and your share easier to find and to read. We’ve also made our recipe archive easier to navigate and created space for more photos that highlight the beauty of our farm. Check out the features of our new design:

Sharer Information in One Place

Information about your account and details about picking up your share, field work requirements and other farm policies are collected under the new “My Share” drop-down menu. You can access this menu, along with any other menu, from any page.

If you are viewing the site on your phone or tablet, tap the menu icon (≡) at the top right corner of the screen to open all the menus. Scroll to the bottom to find the “My Share” links.
