Full Plate MemberShare Program
Our Full Plate MemberShare Program is a form of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). CSA is a partnership between a farm and a community of supporters – members sign up to support the farm throughout the season, and assume the risks and bounty of growing food along with the farmer. The farm provides a healthy supply of seasonal fresh food each week throughout the growing season. The Full Plate MemberShare Program is a GREAT way to begin incorporating local, seasonal eating into your family’s diet.
Our 2013 MemberShare program is now taking sign-ups for Fall!
(Spring & Summer shares are now full)
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each week shareholders receive $20-$30 worth of local, seasonal food grown at Full Heart Farm. Depending on the weather and the time of year, the share may contain vegetables, fruits, herbs, eggs, and meat. The ingredients can be used to make 1-2 family meals, or be incorporated into daily eating.
The average family in southeastern CT spends about $100 a week on groceries. A MemberShare allots 25% of the grocery budget to local eating while still allowing busy families to maintain their current lifestyle. A MemberShare also offers a diverse selection of local foods (not just kale!), which suits a wide range of palates and cooking styles.
