As a member of the Elmer Farm share program, you will receive fresh vegetables, flowers and herbs each week from mid-June through the end of October for a total of 20 weeks. In exchange, members sign a contract for the season and agree to pay in advance or in installments for the share. As a member, you will learn about where and how your food is grown and have the opportunity to participate in farm events!
Pick up at the farm
Each week from mid-June through the end of October, you will come to Elmer Farm to pick up your vegetables on Wednesdays. We are located conveniently on route 116 in East Middlebury. The vegetables will be displayed on tables similar to what you see at a farmers market or grocery store. Members will choose from a selection of vegetables to create their weekly shares. You will also have the opportunity to harvest herbs and cut your own flowers, a great activity to do with kids or a friend! You can also look forward to special events at pick ups such as guest vendors, taste testing and more!
We grow more than thirty-five different vegetables and value the importance of growing heirloom varieties. You will discover a wide selection of eggplant and peppers, over 15 varieties of tomatoes and an exciting mix of greens. You can expect to try something new in your farm share. In addition to your weekly share of vegetables, you will also have the opportunity to purchase products such as meat and maple syrup from local producers!
Elmer Farm offers several share sizes to meet your needs. These include a large share, medium share and small share. A small share might be ideal for a one person household or a family who wants to supplement their own garden.
We strive to make the farm share affordable to all people. We do this by offering various share sizes, participating in the NOFA VT Farm Share program and having flexible payment plans. We also accept tax deductable donations for Elmer Farm share scholarships.
