After taking our weekly crop walk this morning and poking our heads under remay, pulling radishes and green garlic, and sizing up the kale and lettuce, we are excited to announce we will be starting the share on time this year despite the slow start to the season!  Our first pick up days for shareholders picking up on the farm in Salem are Tuesday, June 3 and Friday, June 6.  The first day for our Coventry Market share will be June 1.

Share pick up

Coventry Market Shares:  Coventry market shareholders can pick up their shares during the hours of the market 11 AM - 2 PM at our stand at the market.  Your share will be packaged up for you and we will help you find it when you get there.  The market can be quite busy so you may want to consider getting there early or coming towards the end to avoid traffic.

Salem on-farm pick up:  Shareholders picking up on the farm may come once a week either on Tuesdays or Fridays from 2-7 (no need to tell us which day) to pick up your share.  Our shareroom is always staffed so someone will always be there to help you figure out how to pick up your share.  We provide bags but feel free to bring your own and help us save resources.

If you can not pick up your share, please feel free to invite your neighbor, friend or family member to pick it up.  Again, no need to tell us and we will happily show your guests the ropes. 

We will be selling Terra Firma Farm's certified GMO free pasture raised eggs at the share.  We have lots of our own 100% grassfed beef available for sale too.  We will also be selling Meeting Place Pastures pasture raised pork again. 

Parking:  Please park along the road and behind the barn, but do not use the main farm driveway. We will have plenty of signs to direct you.   Please always drive carefully around the farm as there are many children around the farm during share hours.   Also, please note that our electric fences may be on and to watch your children near the cow fences.

Share payments

Full payment of your share is currently due.  Please pay up ASAP if you haven't already or I am going to start bugging you with calls and emails.
