Worker Share

Although we are a small family farm and CSA, the amount of vegetables that we grow would be impossible to maintain by ourselves!  We depend heavily on our worker shares that volunteer 4-5 hours each week in exchange for their Standard vegetable share.  Our past workers have been an amazing work force and have made sure that all of our harvest and delivery days have run smoothly and that we have delivered the freshest vegetables that we possibly could.  With smiles on their faces (every time I looked at least) they have worked in rain, heat, cold and mud.  As we grow, we add a few worker-shares each year.
