What is a share?
A Winter Share is 10 weeks of local, organic veggies and local free range eggs. A winter share takes into account the time you will be spending cooking with friends and family during the holidays and is slightly larger than a main season harvest share at a average $30/week value. In your winter harvest share, you can expect tomatoes, salad fixings including lettuce, arugula, and radishes. You can also expect lush leafy greens like spinach, kale, chard, and collard greens. Sweet potatoes, "regular" potatoes, celery, carrots, beets, and bok choy, are also growing for your winter harvest share. Winter Share deliveries begin November 14th and run through January 23rd, with no deliveries Dec 26th.
Information below is about our Main Season Harvest Share that begins in May:
A share in the harvest of Tumbling Shoals Farm is a box of the absolute freshest, quality, certified organic fruits and vegetables delivered each week to locations in Hickory, Lenoir or Wilkes County or for pick up here at the farm in Millers Creek. Shares cost $515 and are delivered from May into September. That's about $25.75 worth of fresh fruits and vegetables for 20 weeks! For your convenience, we are offering you the ability to pay by credit card! In order to help us cover the cost of this service, we will add a 3.5% fee to credit card transactions. Of course, you can always mail us a check and avoid the fee!
Your weekly share of the farm's produce will contain a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables grown organically on our farm. An example of a mid to late July full share might be:
| • 3 pound tomatoes
• 1 pint sungold cherry tomatoes
• 2 ounces basil
• 3 pounds potatoes
• 1 pound green peppers
• 1 pint okra
• 1 pound green beans
• 1 pound cucumbers

Each week, we'll also provide you with our favorite seasonal recipes and an email newsletter so you can keep up with the happenings at the farm. Check out our seasonal availability calendar to get an idea of what to expect.
Low income share support: you can help subsidize a low income share by kicking in an extra $15 with your registration! That's $15, just once, and it can go a long way toward helping someone less fortunate access fresh local organic vegetables.
