Our primary partnership is with the Farm at Millers Crossing, who supply a variety of vegetables. For other things you might want (coffee, fruit, eggs, bread, or meat, for example), we work with other farmers to offer shares for additional products. These shares are separate from your basic FFS membership and require a separate sign-up than your regular membership.
Please Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions not covered here.
Our fruit share is provided by Hepworth Farms, a seventh generation family owned farm in Milton, NY. Each week, the farm will provide a selection of locally grown fruit that is cultivated using practices as close to organic as possible in this region. The fruit will vary with the growing season, but in the past Hepworth Farms has included the following fruit in their farm share: strawberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, plums, nectarines, pears, apples (many different varieties).
Our eggs are provided by Brookside Farm in Argyle, NY. Brookside Farm’s hens are free-range and enjoy a varied diet of bugs, food scraps, and grain from a small farm in Vermont.
We offer Milk, Butter, and Half and Half through Milk Not Jails.
A weekly share will be one of the following items: 16 oz. of whole milk yogurt, or; 8 oz. of Greek yogurt, or; 16 oz. of yogurt smoothie.
The weekly cheese share alternates between a fresh cheese and a hard aged cheese. Examples of fresh cheese include: Mozzarella, Cheese Curds, Quark (similar to cream cheese) or a cheese spread.
