Sign up for farm-fresh produce today!
Our Farm Share consists of weekly deliveries of fresh, Certified Organic produce to drop sites in the Portland Metro area. Members buy a share and in return come to their chosen location to obtain their weekly selections of produce. Each share will consist of a diverse array of seasonal and staple vegetables, changing as the weeks and months progress. This system ensures that members get to eat the best Certified Organic produce each week for an affordable price, support a small family farm, and experience the changing seasons through food. Please read on for more information about what is in each share, the benefits of purchasing a Simington Gardens Farm Share and answers to commonly asked questions. The 2016 Farm Share season begins the second week of June and continues through the week of Thanksgiving. This is 25 weeks and the cost is $675 due in full, which breaks down to only $27 a week for farm-fresh organic produce. Please contact the farm at email@example.com for payment options in regard to economic constraints.

How many people will the box feed?
This is the most commonly asked question and answers will vary greatly. Our boxes will usually contain 8-12 items depending on the season. Shares will generally be larger in the late summer, at the peak of harvest. A share will be enough for small families of moderate vegetable eaters. Expect to supplement the share if the bulk of you meals are produce, you are vegetarian or vegan, or simply a vegetable enthusiast. Regardless, all members will receive fresh, local, certified organic produce weekly at below market prices.
What can I expect in my box?
Each box will be a selection of seasonal produce ripe that week. Early season shares may contain kale, head lettuce, radishes, broccoli, chard, scallions, carrots or beets and cabbage. Mid season boxes may contain tomatoes, onions, corn, peppers, kale, lettuce, summer squash, carrots, cauliflower or collards. Late season shares may include greens mix, kale, chard, rutabaga, winter squash, cabbage, broccoli, hot peppers, storage onions or garlic. Shares will frequently contain staple items like the dark leafy greens, lettuce, and potatoes.
Do you offer half shares?
No, we offer one size box. In years past folks who were concerned about not being able to eat all that comes in their share found a friend, neighbor, or co-worker to share a box with. Others cooked a meal for friends weekly. With produce this fresh and healthy there are many options for ways to make sure nothing goes to waste.
Is Simington Gardens Certified Organic?
Yes, we have been certified organic by Oregon Tilth for the past three years. Even before we were certified, we adhered to organic standards. We don’t just stop there either, we are constantly looking for new ways to make our food and our environment healthier and more vibrant.
What if I plan on going out of town?
Not a problem, just give us a week’s notice, and we will give you a credit for up to two boxes or you can have a friend or family member pick up your box.
Why support Simington Gardens?
We grow Certified Organic produce using sustainable methods. Our job is difficult, yet incredibly rewarding because we get to be a part of the changing local food system. With so many options for food available and a growing awareness from consumers in regard to where food comes from and how it is produced, we like to keep it simple. We grow healthy food for our community and make it affordable. Our crew gets paid living wages for their hard work, we improve the health of the land we use and secure healthy, independent food options that are and always have been free of synthetic chemicals and genetically modified crops. We believe that the future health of our community lies in better food and stronger relationships. By supporting Simington Gardens and purchasing a farm share, you directly help promote these goals
