How To Sign Up
New City Farm as several share offerings, from sizes designed for one person to those those for families of four or five. You may sign up for our summer share, the post popular option, starting on May 31 and going until October 25. You can also extend your season by adding an additional share that provides produce from November 1 to December 13.
Purchasing a share in our farm means you get great local produce, and you help provide employment and job skills training for 12 high school students. Farm shareholders purchase a share of the farm’s produce for a given year. As a co-owner in the farm, shareholders take on both the risk and the reward of each unique growing season. While we aim to provide our shareholders with a 30% discount on their produce compared to natural no-spray (non-certified organic) produce at a local farmer’s market, a good growing season will mean a little more food, and a difficult year will mean a little less.
We harvest and wash all produce except cherry tomatoes, beans, and peas. We invite members to U-pick these items. Typically 12 of our 22 pickups will involve U-picks. Each shareholder is given 3 free “get out of U-pick passes.” We also offer an unlimited “No Pick Pass” for an additional fee. We also offer a share that provides prepared soups made by the students with our Kitchen Director. Get a soup every week with your share for an additional fee.
Pickup is every Thursday 12:30-6:00pm, May 31 to October 25 at the farm (1226 Union NE, Grand Rapids MI, 49505).
