Half Shares (aka Alternate Week CSA farm shares)

Now in our third year of production, Moraine Farm CSA is adding a few new things to our offerings.

New this year — we are piloting an alternating week summer farm  share, essentially the “half share” so many people have asked for. These “half shares” are nine, every-other-week distributions of farm-fresh produce, beginning the weeks of June 17 or June 24. The cost is $225 plus a membership in TTOR. To subscribe, complete our Half Share Subscription Form and send payment to Moraine Farm CSA/TTOR, 733 Cabot Street, Beverly, MA 01915. For information about the crops we grow, our growing practices and examples of the kind of produce in a farm share, visit the Moraine Farm CSA web pages and/or email me at ganderson@ttor.org

We have also expanded our retail offerings to include some very local honey, maple syrup, dried beans, Maitland Mountain Pickles, Just Add Fruit pie crusts, flowers and potted herbs, and we are offering three single-item, pre-purchased shares of locally produced food from farmers in the neighborhood:

Cider Hill Fruit Shares, the best of what farmer Glenn Cook has available from his orchard of plum, peach, pear, nectarine and apple trees for 10 weeks.

Valley View Farm Cheese Sampler Shares,  the best goat cheeses you’ll ever taste! 10 weeks of chevre, feta, camembert, tomme cheese types of goat cheese.

Appleton Farm Yogurt Shares, made from Jersey cow milk at Appleton Farm – a real treat!
