Who’s excited for fresh organic produce this summer?!
Our 20 week summer share season will begin June 5, 2018 and runs through October 16, 2018. Pick up time is Tuesday from 11am – 2pm at the Lewis & Clark County fairgrounds’ Bill Hamilton 4-H building. Pick up time may be subject to change, as the delivery truck was often arriving after 10:00am last year. We will keep you posted on any changes in pick up time. If any changes do occur, it will likely be to push back the pick up time by one hour, from 12 – 3pm.

DETAILS ABOUT OUR SHARES
Produce share: Enjoy freshly harvested Montana-grown produce for 20 weeks! We source as much of our produce as possible from growers in the Helena Valley and surrounding communities, but what we cannot find locally, we obtain from the Western Montana Grower’s Cooperative. Follow the seasons with herbs and leafy greens early in the summer, followed by tomatoes, peppers, plums, and cherries in mid-summer, wrapping up with potatoes, onions, carrots, and a plethora of other root vegetables in the fall. This is local, seasonal, sustainable eating at its finest–nothing travels more than 150 miles to reach your kitchen! For each week, 1 share will usually consist of 5-7 different items, depending on availability. All of our produce is produced using sustainable methods; many farms are USDA certified organic while others are certified Homegrown, which is an organic designation in Montana. Some fruits, such as apples, are produced using Integrated Pest Management, but we seek out organically grown fruits first.
Egg Share: Our layers are happy, healthy, free-ranging gals that live right here in Helena. It’s hard to beat cracking open an egg to reveal a beautiful golden orange yolk that is full of carotenoids and delicious flavor!
A half share consists of a half dozen (6) eggs per week for 20 weeks. A full share consists of one dozen (12) eggs per week for 20 weeks.
