Our Farmer’s Share is made up of vegetables that are naturally beautiful but don’t meet traditional market cosmetic standards. Instead of going to compost, you can help with our country’s food waste problem while growing your bounty. The winter Farmer’s Share is made up of mostly sweet potatoes and carrots and is great for sharing with friends, cooking up a big batch for a dinner party, juicing and more! You can add onto your order for $7 with a vegetable share and $9 without a vegetable share.

INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: LION’S MANE MUSHROOMS
Also known as sheep’s head, bear’s head or Japanese yamabushitake, lion’s mane mushrooms have cascading spindles that make them look like – you guessed it – a lion’s mane. These mushrooms can often taste like shellfish, and they have many health benefits: they can improve brain function and mood.
