Support Local Farmers

One of the best ways to support local farms is to participate in a Farm Share program (also called Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA). These programs provide a guaranteed income for the farm and give community members the opportunity to have a stake in the agricultural economy. How it works: community members purchase a “share” of the farm before the growing season begins. This allows the farmer to purchase materials for the year and pay wages for early-season work. Then, when the growing season is in full swing, farm share members get a “return” on their investment by receiving a weekly bounty from the farm. Traditionally, this is in the form of a variety of vegetables and herbs to supplement the members’ grocery needs. Recently, flower farm shares have become popular and bring the beauty of nature into the home.

2019 Flower Share Details

A Flower Farm Share will include a weekly bouquet of seasonal, colorful, beautifully arranged flowers for 15 weeks from July through October. Bouquets are valued at $15 and are the perfect size for a delightful centerpiece or table-top decoration. Members will receive a weekly newsletter with information about the farm, exclusive and early bird opportunities for farm-to-table events at the farm, and poetic musings about flowers from Joanna.

The price of a Flower Farm Share is $180. This can be paid in-full or in two $90 installments due before July 1st. You can purchase a Flower Farm Share on the Online Payment page or write and send a check/cash to Small Feat Farm.

There will be two pick-up days per week: Tuesdays and Thursdays. Members can either pick up at the farm (120 Whitney Rd. Gray, ME) or at a predetermined location in Portland. ***Please check back in the next few weeks for more specific details on days of the week and pick-up location.***

Businesses that purchase a farm share and cannot pickup the weekly bouquets in Portland can have their weekly bouquets delivered for a one-time $50 fee. This can be directly coordinated with Joanna. Unfortunately, we are not able to deliver to individual households.

If 5 or more members are located at the same place of work, bouquets can be delivered directly to the members on a determined day of the week. Please contact us through the Contact page if this is something you’d like to coordinate with your office mates!
