9/14/2020…update….this week’s half share will consist of a variety of seasonal vegetables (you may see bell peppers, lunchbox peppers, anaheim peppers, jalapenos, patty pan squash, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, new lettuce, toscano kale, radishes, and purple string beans–just coming in again:)
At Woodsong Naturals, we offer over 60 different vegetables, flowers, and herbs grown throughout the year on our family farm.
What is a Farm Share? Essentially, it is a weekly seasonal assortment of vegetables, herbs, and flowers. A share is designed to provide all or a substantial part of a couple’s or family diet of greens and vegetables. As a Farm Share participant, you can also purchase or “add on” other farm products we produce for a discount. If you have a particular situation like a larger family or a restricted diet, please contact us to discuss your individual needs.
What does it mean to eat seasonally? Different plants have very specific temperature needs. As a result, plants are grown and harvested at different times of year based on the seasons of the year. For example, notice our May farm share, consists mainly of lettuce and salad greens, roots crops like radish and beets, and micro-greens. In June, the Solanaceae crops of tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and eggplant will be added. (Yes, there are good tasting eggplant varieties, firm and sweet, try ours.) We use season extension tools that allow us to plant earlier and continue later into the season in order to provide you with a wider window of harvest. Currently, we are building two green houses that will enable us to grow a consistent wide variety of local vegetables year round .
Each month we provide a list of the crops that you can expect to be in your Farm Share (dependent on weather and acts of God). Additionally, there will be a few surprises to enjoy!
Another added benefit of being a Farm Share member is home delivery. You may also pick up at our farmer’s market locations, or neighborhood drop off points.

Sugar Snap Peas
A real seasonal favorite, and sadly only availaible a relatively short time before the temperatures rise. Sugar snaps are a treat to old and young alike. Packed with protein, with a sweet flavor, the Sugar snaps are great eaten chilled and fresh. They are the perfect health snack, by themselves or on a salad.
