Refer a friend to Stearns Farm by March 31, and we’ll thank you with a choice of either a credit for all of your work hours or a check for the value of those hours ($40 or $60, depending on whether you have a Farmer’s Choice or Classic Harvest share).

All you have to do is spread the word to your friends and co-workers, and tell them enter your name in their online registration form when they purchase a share. We will contact you to find out your choice. If you choose to receive a check, payments will be made after June 1.

This offer applies only when referring new sharers who did not have a Stearns Farm share in 2016. New sharers must sign up by March 31.

Refer a Friend FAQ

Who can participate?

You must purchase a 2017 summer share, and the person you refer must be a new sharer who did not have a summer share in 2016. The promotion will be available for a limited time only. 

How does it work?

When someone purchases a summer share, they will be asked whether anyone referred them and to tell us that person’s name. After the promotion ends, we will email everyone whose name has been listed as having referred a new sharer to ask for their choice of benefit. If you choose to receive a check, payments will be made after June 1, 2017.

Explain my choices

If you choose to get credit for your work hours, you will not have to complete any work hours during the 2017 summer season. 

If you choose a check ($40 if you have a Farmer’s Choice share or $60 if you have a Classic Harvest share), you will still be required to complete your work hours during the 2017 summer season. If later you are unable to work the required number of hours, you will need to pay for any unworked hours at a rate of $10/hour.

What if I already pre-paid for my work hours?

If you pre-paid for your work hours when you bought your share, you may receive a refund, or you may designate the money as a donation to the farm. Either way, you will get credit for your work hours.

My friend forgot to put my name on the registration form. What should I do?

Please email Frann Bennett at with your friend’s name and the name of the person in your household who purchased your share. You will receive your work hours credit or check as long as your friend has purchased a share while this offer is available.
