What is Colonial Farm Share?
Beginning this year, we will be offering a Colonial Farm Share – our take on what a farmer-grown food subscription service should be: an easy way for you to receive your share of our fresh, nutrient-dense produce featuring the absolute best of what’s in season!
Starting in June, your Colonial Farm Share subscription includes 15 weeks of the best seasonal produce our farmers are harvesting. Your membership allows you to enjoy special invite-only events and special discounts at The Market at Colonial Gardens, along with flavorful recipe ideas highlighting each week’s harvest. As a member, you will receive a wide variety of garden favorites and some that you may not have ever tried before! A few of the items to look forward to include: kohlrabi, broccoli, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, peppers, bok choi, summer squash, tomatoes, eggplant, onions, brussels sprouts, cabbage and so much more. Your home-cooked meals will burst with flavor and you can feel good feeding your family healthier options!
How Does it Work?
Beginning in early June, members will pick up their weekly farm shares at Colonial Gardens in Blue Springs. Two pickup dates will be available each week and a guest may pick up in case you can’t make it. Our Market Coordinator 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 (not simply one of each) and 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 share memberships are $375, with a $100 deposit due at sign up. The remaining balance of $275 amounts to monthly auto-debited payments averaging $69 for 4 months (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.
