Once again we will be offering an egg share and a mushroom share to pick up here with your veggies, or for Portland-area folks, in your box. This email will explain what that means and how to sign up and pay for these options.
We bring in eggs from Sparrow Farm in Pittston. The chickens get to roam on the actual earth, are well cared for, and are MOFGA certified organic. The eggs are $5 per dozen. We will run this for 18 weeks, so the total cost is $90. The first egg share will be available the week of June 10th.
We WILL have eggs for sale every week at the farm on Tuesdays and Fridays if you do not want to commit to the share. Purchasing the share allows you the convenience of not having to worry about paying for eggs each week, and will guarantee that we’ll have a dozen reserved for you.
The mushrooms are from Oyster Creek Farm in Damariscotta. Each week’s share will be between a half to three-quarter pound of cultivated or wild-gathered mushrooms. This will include storage and preparation tips. This will also run for 18 weeks beginning the week of June 10th. The cost is $11.50 per week, for a total of $207. More info on the varieties of mushrooms to expect on their website here: http://www.oystercreekmushroom.com
*If you want to sign up for either share, but you are NOT listed as the primary member, you can sign up by giving us a check this coming week, or at least send me an email so we can get you on the list.
