We are neaspinachring the end of the season here on Mitchell Family Farm. Between our wonderful customers purchasing produce and the extreme cold, the produce in the hoop houses is almost finished. Now is the time to order if you would like some fresh local greens to finish out the year. Our greens are fresh-picked so if you order now and keep them properly packaged and refrigerated they will stay good so you can enjoy fresh greens into January!

We also now have honey again! Prices are as follows:

  • Quart (glass jar): $13.50
  • Half-gallon (glass jar): $26.00
  • Gallon (plastic jug): $45.00

Note some produce items are limited quantity.


Share-of-the-week

  • Full Share: $15 (a diverse mix of currently available produce with approximately a $16-17 value)
  • Half Share: $10 (a diverse mix of currently available produce with approximately a $11 – $12 value)

We will have a trade basket available and you may trade a sack of produce from your share for another in the trade basket if you desire. Please note that the young greens will not typically be available in the shares.

The full share typically will feed a family of four for one week if they really enjoy their greens while the half share is geared toward a family that uses a smaller amount of greens in a week or couples and individuals.
