Newton Community Farm is pleased to offer a weekly fruit share in conjunction with Autumn Hills Orchard in Groton, MA. Each weekly share consists of a 4–5 pound (approximate) bag of apples and occasionally may include grapes or pears. As with all things agricultural, what is available is highly dependent on the particular growing conditions. (Please note that due to winter/spring weather conditions, there will not be any peaches, nectarines, or plums in the the shares this year.)
Duration: Eight pickups starting Wednesday, August 30, through Thursday, October 19. Share distributions will be available for pickup at Newton Community Farm under the white tent near the barn each week during the program on Wednesdays or Thursdays between 2 and 7 pm. Fruit will be held until 7 pm Thursdays, after which time unclaimed shares will be donated.
Cost is $108 per share (one bag each week for eight weeks), and registration closes on Tuesday, August 22 at 12pm.
