As a summer season member, you will get to share in the full bounty of the fields. From greens and strawberries in the early season, to juicy heirlooms in the late summer, to butternut squash in the fall, we promise to fill your plates with interesting and delicious vegetables.

All of our shares are customizable. Each week we will suggest a share with about 10 – 15 items. Using our mobile friendly software, you will be able to view this share and swap out any items you don’t love for ones you do. Zucchini not your favorite? Swap out for more carrots. Don’t want kale? Customize your share to have head lettuce instead.

We grow over 60 different vegetables, as well as strawberries and melons. The majority of shares are full of staple crops you’ll recognize, like carrots, broccoli, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and potatoes.  But we also grow many other kinds of vegetables that reflect the diversity of what can be grown in Wisconsin. You’ll get to learn and hopefully love some new veggies – like fennel, kohlrabi, and kale to name a few.

Weekly educational tips from our veggie share syllabus will help you learn about the items in your box and give you storage tips and cooking ideas. On our website, we have a recipe search index which provides access to all archived recipes. And our weekly post on the Crossroads Chronicle blog will give you a feel for what life is like on the farm.

We have two different share options for our summer shares.

REGULAR WEEKLY SHARE (20 weeks)

All shares are customizable. A regular share provides a weekly box of fresh vegetables from the farm for 20 weeks from early June through mid-October. It generally feeds a family of 3 to 5 members (though each family’s veggie consumption differs).

2020 SUMMER REG SHARE: $675

EVERYOTHER WEEK SHARE (10 boxes)

All shares are customizable. An everyother share provides a box of fresh vegetables every other week for 20 weeks (10 boxes total) from early June through mid-October.  It generally feeds a family of 1 to 3 (though each family’s veggie consumption differs).

2020 SUMMER EO SHARE: $397
