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 shares, the post popular option, starting at beginning of June and going until the end of October, or you can extend your season by adding two additional shares that provide produce from the beginning of May all the way to the end of December.
Purchasing a share in our farm means you get great local produce, and you help provide employment and job skills training for 10 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 U-pick pass for an additional fee.
Pickup is every Thursday 12:30-6:00pm, June 1 to October 26 at the farm (1226 Union NE, Grand Rapids MI, 49505).
