For 2012 we are offering individual Farm Shares available in any amount, in limited quantity. Shares are ideally purchased early in the season (January-June), as this helps with planning and capital investments, but a Farm Share can be purchased anytime of season--as long as you feel you'll have enough time to use it.
Farm Share certificates will be mailed out to you after receiving payment in full, and can be used like cash, all season long, for purchases on-farm, special orders or from farmers' markets. For 2012 we will plan to be at the New Ulm Saturday farmers' market and in Madelia on Wednesdays.
2012 ORDER FORM: download or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
To receive your Farm Share complete the order form and submit it with a check for the full amount of the share.
Farm Shareholder responsibilities
Purchasing a Farm Share is also a mutual agreement with the farmer, you are making an up-front investment in the farm to receive quality produce during the season. If purchasing at the farmers' market know that sales are done on a first come, first served basis--arrive early for your best selection. Your Farm Share is good for the current growing season only, approximately June-October; if you have a balance left at the end of the season it is forfeit, it cannot be used for 2013, and it cannot be refunded. Keep a copy of your order form, which contains sales and contact information; read emails and newsletters that are sent out; know when the growing and farmers' markets seasons begin and end; and know how much of a balance you have remaining on your Farm Share.
