Definition of farm share
- Every spring, Asta Sinusas, a 39-year-old public relations professional in New York City, shares in the joys and disappointments of being a farmer. That is, Sinusas buys a farm share. This month, she will spend $540 and receive nothing—until mid-June when, every week until mid-November, she will go to a nearby community center and pick up fresh vegetables from Stoneledge Farm in Leeds, N.Y. … . Every farm share arrangement is different. Some farms specialize in offering a variety of produce. One week you may be looking at a box full of kale, summer squash and dandelion greens; the next week, bok choy, eggplant, tomatoes and green beans. You might find a farm that gives you more than vegetables—perhaps a couple dozen duck eggs and a weekly bouquet of wildflowers.
