on-farm shares

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL – A Great Way to Support Your Farm! Sign up before Nov. 3rd to get your 2019 share at 2016 prices!

As a mixed vegetable CSA farm, we grow over fifty different crops for weekly distribution to our share-members throughout the harvest season from June through October. Members have the opportunity each week to choose from an abundant variety of fresh, seasonal produce.

While the share offerings increase in volume and diversity as the season progresses, a medium share typically comprises 1-2 grocery bags and is intended to feed 3-5 people per week. We offer both small, medium and large share sizes so as to accommodate a variety of household sizes.

Scroll down to see a list of the crops that you can expect to find in your share throughout the stages of the season.

The share barn is where it all happens. Each week, you will visit the share barn on your selected pick-up day to select the veggies you’d like to take home. The crops that are available and the quantities that you receive for your respective share size will be posted on easy-to-read chalkboards. And there will always be an NBO farmer on-hand to answer any questions you may have. The share barn is easy to navigate, kid friendly, and a great place to trade recipes with other members.
