Other Information:

We are now offering one share size for our produce share.  (The produce share is the same size as the previous half share.) It is hard to tell exactly how many people that it will feed, but we would guess 2 – 3 people.  It depends on how often you plan to use the produce, how many people are in your family and how much they eat. There will be 6 – 8 items included in the produce box each week. Variety and quantity of produce will vary depending on the time of year, field conditions and weather. In order to give you the best variety of produce we will be working together with area farmers. To see the complete list of what could possibly be in the shares please see the Produce Calendar located near the bottom of the FAQ page on the website.  **Please note that this is primarily a vegetable share and it will generally be a small serving of fruit each week.

Meat shares will include a variety of beef and pork cuts.  Meat deliveries are once per month.  The share includes about 12lbs of beef and pork each month. The cows are out in the pasture and are fed corn, veggie scraps and grass from the pasture.  The pigs are fed corn and veggies scraps. Beef is processed at Byron Center Meats and pork is naturally cured and processed at Devries Meats. Meat will come vacuumed sealed and frozen.

Chicken shares include about 10lbs of chicken with each delivery.  Chicken deliveries are once per month.  We are working together with Otto’s chicken to provide you with local chicken. Shares will include a variety of cuts.  Here are a few examples:  whole chickens, cut up into 8 pieces, cut in halves, leg quarters and thighs. Meat will come vacuumed sealed and frozen.

A trade box is available at the farm and Spring Lake drop off locations for produce shares.  You can trade 1 item in your box for 1 item in the trade box per week.
