Choose your Add-On Shares
The more you add the less you need to shop somewhere else. We’ve tasted and approved these extras for our family and are happy to offer these fantastic, high quality, locally produced items to you. We produce some of these Add-On Shares and others are from partner farms.
Bread – Whole grain organic flour and my own wild yeast starter baked in our own on-site Wood-fired Brick Oven. Longer rise times and sourdough methods make the nutrients in the wheat more available to our digestive system. The bread variety will change throughout the year. I make many variations of wheat breads, rye breads, pumpernickel, and more. These are mostly sandwich breads, the loaves are about 24oz, and are available fresh on Saturdays. The bread delivered on Wednesday or Thursday will usually be frozen immediately after baking to preserve freshness. ($6.50/week. Choose weekly or bi-weekly to match your veggie share. If you want more than one, adjust the quantity at sign up.)
Raw Cheese – We are happy to offer this quality cheese so you can enjoy it’s health benefits. Most of the cheese comes from Hilltop Meadow Farm in Pine Grove, PA although we occasionally have raw cheese from other PA farms. These farms give their cows a grass diet and produce creamy, mild cheeses. Varieties include cheddar, sharp cheddar, havarti, smoked cheddar, colby, pepperjack, swiss, gouda, feta, garlic & herb and others. Each week you will receive one pound of raw milk cheese of the variety we select. ($12/week. Choose weekly or bi-weekly to match your veggie share. If you want more than one, adjust the quantity at sign up.)
Eggs – You will receive one dozen fresh certified organic eggs from Willow Haven’s local partner farms. These chickens only receive organic feed and their eggs are gathered and washed daily. You may order more than one share of eggs. ($6/week. Choose weekly or bi-weekly to match your veggie share. If you want more than one dozen, adjust the quantity at sign up.) VERY POPULAR
Fruit – This fruit share allows you to receive fresh, delicious fruit produced by several area farms. You will receive strawberries, cherries, raspberries, blueberries, black raspberries, peaches, apples, and pears. Most fruit will come from Scholl Orchards and Schmidt’s Berry Farm. These growers have served local customers for many years and pay close attention to quality. Occasionally I am able to purchase organically grown fruit but most of the fruit will be conventionally grown. Each fruit delivery will contain at least 2 ‘containers’ of fruit. Smaller berries come in small containers and large fruit like apples or peaches comes in quarts. For example, 5 or 6 peaches fit into a quart. ($12/week. Choose weekly or bi-weekly to match your veggie share. If you want more, adjust the quantity at sign up. 1 share = 2 containers, 2 shares = 4 containers.) VERY POPULAR (SOLD OUT FOR 2020 SEASON).
Flowers – You will receive a beautiful, unique bouquet delivered to your home or workplace for eight weeks on a bi-weekly schedule which will allow you to enjoy the variations of the whole season. Each bouquet is grower’s choice which means you will receive the BEST of what we have growing in the field. Flowers will include calendula, phlox, dalphinium, snapdragons, cosmos, sunflowers, zinnias and much more! ($20/delivery. Every other week delivery will match your veggie share. If you want more than one dozen, adjust the quantity at sign up.)
Artisan Cheese – Receive a selection of our handcrafted ripened and fresh products from Haven Farmstead. Usually a both a fresh and aged cheese. Weights will vary depending on type of cheese, approx.10-12 oz total/week. 10 weeks, delivered every other week with your vegetable share. Click here to find out what types of cheese we make.
