What is Colonial Farm Share?
Colonial Farm Share is our take on a farmer-grown food subscription service. It's an easy way to receive fresh, nutrient-dense produce featuring the best of what’s in season!
Starting in June, your Colonial Farm Share subscription includes 15 weeks of seasonal produce, fresh from our farmers and partner farms. You'll receive a wide variety of garden favorites and some that you may not have ever tried before. A few items to look forward to include: kohlrabi, broccoli, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, peppers, summer squash, tomatoes, eggplant, onions, brussels sprouts, cabbage and so much more. Feel good about feeding your family healthy, fresh local food!
Your membership also allows you to enjoy special invite-only events and special discounts in the Market at Colonial Gardens. You'll also get flavorful recipe ideas highlighting each week’s harvest.
How Does it Work?
Beginning in June, members pick up their weekly farm share at Colonial Gardens in Blue Springs. Two days a week will be available for pick-up, and a guest may pick up in case you can’t make it. A staff member will ensure all your questions are answered and can help you with new ideas for using your produce.
Each share contains 7-9 varieties of produce. While we encourage everyone to enjoy their full share assortment, we know everyone has their own tastes. To maximize the enjoyment of your share, we have a “swap box” where members can swap out one variety for another so nothing goes to waste.
Full farm share memberships are $400, with a $100 deposit due at sign up. The remaining balance of $300 amounts to recurring auto-debited payments over the course of the farm share (June-September).
At Colonial Gardens, we focus on the science of soil biology. With years of proven growing experience, our farmers focus on creating and maintaining the best, bio-active environment for growing food. Healthy soil, full of beneficial bacteria, fungi, and microbial life, ultimately means healthier food going to your table. We encourage you to stop in, meet our farmers and take a tour of our growing areas (both fields and greenhouses). We would love to share our passion for healthy food, with you.
