For the past 5 years we have offered our Farmstead Share in the Fall. This Share combines all of the nourishing food we cultivate, raise and gather here on our farm.  Storage veggies; potatoes,onions, carrots, beets, cabbage, winter squash. Greens; kale, chard, spinach and arugula, lettuces and culinary Herbs. Weekly Medicinal Fall Tonics like Elderberry Syrup and Fire Cider, plus our pasture raised meat birds and eggs, homemade granola, and weekly yogurt and cheese from small Maine Creameries.  Lots of beautiful and nourishing food to enjoy in the Fall and Winter months.

We offer a Vegan Option, and Medicinal Herb Share for those who don’t want the Full Share.  Shares begin Thursday, October 4, and run for 6 consecutive weeks, ending November 8.  Pick up at our farm or the Maine Coast Waldorf School. For more information about the Share, email Lucretia Woodruff, milkweedfarm@gmail.com

We believe that eating food grown locally, in season, by farmers who care deeply for the land, animals and people, is deeply nourishing and sustaining for our communities.

      Hi Mandy! You can put a check in the mail or drop it off at the farm if you’re in town. I’d love to see you. We are all doing well here. School starts next week, and I’m actually looking forward to Fall, and some cooler weather. I hope you guys are all well too. ❤️L

      Hi Mandy,
      I’m checking in to see if you still want the Fall Share? No problem if not, I have almost filled the CSA and want to be sure I’ve got everybody on the list who wants it.
      Hope all is well!

    Sounds great Mike! I was going to call you this week to check in and see how you’re doing? Next week the kids go back to school Wednesday, so after that I’ll have a little more time

    Hi Lucretia,

    I would like a Farmstead Share again this fall. Would it be possible for me to have the same payment arrangement as last fall and pay you $100 week in cash?

    Thanks,

    Nancy >
