Student Shares still available! Half and Full shares are sold out for 2018.
If you’re here for our just-as-fresh-and-more-affordable 8-week student option, we’ve got you covered. Our standard 18-week summer and fall program is sold out for 2018! All of our shares are sourced from over 20 farmers in and around the Twin Cities and Wisconsin.
HOW THE GOOD ACRE FARM SHARE WORKS
Each week during the growing season, a box of curated fresh, locally grown produce will be dropped off at a location near where you work or live. Each box will include delicious items grown on nearby farms and offer a variety of healthy, familiar items. The Good Acre boxes will be delivered for 18 weeks, from June to mid-October and a pick-up option is available at our facility in Falcon Heights.
Over the course of the season, you can expect to see over 70 varieties of vegetables, fruits, and herbs. In addition to tasty produce, each box will consist of a newsletter full of recipes, news from the farmers, a description of box contents, and more.
