Shares of the harvest

We aim to provide organic produce shares for our members 52 weeks a year, using only the vegetables and fruits we grow on Leasowe Farm, near Leamington Spa.  You will receive a weekly share of whatever is harvested each week,  according to whether you have subscribed to a Large, Medium or Small share (see Prices).  Examples of weekly shares in the different sizes throughout the year are below (please note that these are not definitive lists, but give you an idea of what you might expect based on our produce share records from 2015). As you can see below, the three share sizes generally consist of the same produce, just in different quantities.

The main thing that we want you to know is that as we will only be providing what we can grow here on the farm. For this reason, you may notice a difference in the quantity of produce in your weekly share throughout the year.  For example, a produce share in August or September is going to be both larger and more diverse than a share in, say, May.  This is simply because there are times of the year where produce is more abundant due to the point in the growing season. In terms of the value of your produce, however, this should balance out over the year – where a share in May may well be worth less than the weekly share price, in August or September it could be worth almost double this.
