We are excited that we will be offering our Fall Share at P.S. 87 again, our fifth season offering a farm share for the fall school semester!
We are now accepting sign-ups for our Vegetable, Egg and Fruit shares, to begin on Wednesday September 11th. Dates: 14 weeks, Sept 11- Dec. 18th (skip Nov. 27th for Thanksgiving) Pick up on Thursday, Oct 10th because of Yom Kippur.
Price: Vegetable share $245, Fruit add-on $70, Eggs add-on $87.50
Hours: Pick up Wednesdays, 2:45 – 3:30pm, at P.S. 87
Veggie share: 5 items per week of our certified organic vegetables, usually including a mix of a salad green, a root vegetable, a cooking green, and other seasonal veggies or herbs.
Fruit option: 1 fruit item a week from Mead Orchard. Mead Orchard is a wonderful third-generation orchard just down the road from us. The fruit is Eco-Apple Certified, making it one of the few orchards in the northeast that adheres to this impressive standard.
Eggs option: Pasture-raised eggs every week (or you may choose a dozen or a half dozen). The eggs are from the hens we raise here at Hearty Roots Farm. They live outdoors on pasture, foraging in the grass, which gives their eggs amazing, nutrient-rich orange yolks.
The Wellness Committee needs volunteers to help unload the Hearty Roots truck and hand out the shares every Wednesday from 2:30-3:30! It’s fun to do with your kids!! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
Thanks so so much!!!
