During the growing season, LEAF provides a weekly share of produce grown on our farm, with the option to supplement with various value-added products from our partner farms. The produce is raised by the youth in our program, providing them with meaningful work opportunities that show them their unique potential. All share options run for 20 weeks, from June through October. Shares are delivered weekly on Mondays or Wednesdays to Harrisburg, Carlisle, Camp Hill, and Landisburg. Addresses are available upon checkout.
Here is some information on how to construct your ideal share:
leaf produce share:
You can choose between two different share sizes: small and medium. The small is a $10 value weekly share, and the medium is a $15 value. Weekly shares usually include greens (such as kale, arugula, spinach, or lettuce), a fruiting vegetable (peppers, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers), as well as roots and alliums (beets, potatoes, carrots, garlic). Everything depends on what is in season and most delicious that week! The small size is ideal for one veggie-loving person or a couple, and the medium size better suits a family or a veggie-loving couple!
leaf produce add-ons:
LEAF offers two special share add-ons that can supplement our produce share, or stand alone. The greens share will contain a $5 weekly value of additional greens, such as kale, lettuce mix, arugula, or spinach. In addition, our smoothie share will feature the greens above, and also fruit and/or yogurt that would blend well together in a delicious smoothie! The total value of the smoothie share would be $10 per week.
partner farm add-ons:
Each partner farm add-on that LEAF offers is a $5 weekly value, featuring some of the best farm products in our region. Customers can choose from meat, dairy, bread, and fruit shares. If you would like a different product each week, selected by LEAF staff, you can purchase our Farmers' choice share, for the same price.
Partner Farms and Add-ons
LEAF partners with different farmers in the region to provide the youth in the program a more diverse picture of farming, beyond raising vegetables. These farms, in addition to their own streams of distribution, sell their product to LEAF so that it can be included in "add-ons" for our shares. Below is a list of the different farms we work with, and what they contribute as part of the Partner Farm and Partner Farm Plus shares:
- Threefold Farm: berries and unique fruits
- Talking Breads: freshly baked artisan breads in a variety of flavors, and pasture-raised pork and chicken
- Keswick Creamery: aged and fresh cheeses from pasture-raised cows
- North Mountain Pastures: pasture-raised beef and pork
