What is a share?
2019 Harvest Shares now available! Sign up here.
A share in the harvest of Tumbling Shoals Farm is a custom packed box of the absolute freshest, quality, certified organic fruits and vegetables delivered each week to locations in Hickory or Wilkes County or for pick up here at the farm in Millers Creek. Your share is custom packed for you each week: you set your veggie preferences before the season begins and we create a box based on your preferences, and then you can still swap out veggies at will! Our main season is 20 weeks with deliveries beginning the first week in May and running through mid September.
We have three share sizes available: Extra-large, regular, and small. Extra-large shares cost $800; regular shares $550; small shares $375, all for 20 weeks of freshly harvested local organic fruits and vegetables delivered to convenient locations near you. We also offer a 10-week fall share that begins in late September and runs until Thanksgiving.
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 regular share might be:
| • 2 slicing tomatoes
• 1 container salad mix
• 2 ounces basil
• 3 pounds potatoes
• 2 green peppers
• 1 pint okra
• 1 pound green beans
• 2 cucumbers
For more examples of what might be contained in a share at different times of the year, check out our frequently asked questions page! Remember that your box is created each week based on your personal preferences and you can still swap out items you more or less of!
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 $20 with your registration! That's $20, just once, and it can go a long way toward helping someone less fortunate access fresh local organic vegetables.
A harvest share is not right for everyone. Please ask yourself these questions before signing up for a harvest share.
