The Garden Gazebos will still be stocked & loaded daily with fresh fruits and vegetables all season, please stop in anytime- open 7 days a week from June until November!
YOUR SHARE, YOUR CHOICE.
In a traditional CSA, the shareholder (you the consumer) proactively purchases their produce before it is even growing, helping the farmer absorb some of the many production investments necessary to grow significant quantities of quality produce. In return for this investment, shareholders gain access to the freshest, most nutrient-dense produce available, which is grown by us and harvested fresh daily. With GARNISH & GATHER we’ve changed the traditional pre-packaged pick-up style share to allow customers to select their own produce (farmer’s market style) right at our Garden Gazebo- giving our customers more flexibility on what you choose to GARNISH and when you’d like to GATHER. At the beginning of the season G&G customers will receive a LaMora Farms produce tote to use all season long- each week we'll email or text what items are included in your share list as well as our weekly newsletter Out on a Limb... which will keep you up to date on how the food we grow goes from our fields to your family!
Shares begin the third week of June and end the second week of October (18 weeks). Depending on what is ready in the season, shares will always have both fruit and veggie options, and no two weeks will be the same! Our 2 share options give you the choice of picking the share-size that fits your needs. SMALL GATHER SHARES better serve individuals or smaller families while LARGE GATHER SHARES are geared towards larger families or people who like to can, freeze and preserve through the season. Official pick-up times are Monday 4-6pm and Saturday/Sunday 10am-2pm: these are the times we guarantee the largest selection of produce to choose from - however, shareholders may pick up their share at any time they choose during the week at your convenience- we try to keep the Garden Gazebo stocked at all times but can't guarantee our fullest selection outside the specified share pick-up windows. G&G customers may also split their items over the course of the week, as long as you stay within the total allotted number of items we lay out each week, we want to give our customers the largest selection and most flexibility of any CSA out there!!

“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that I got to choose what I wanted each week instead of getting handed a box of produce with some items I didn’t want or like. I came to the Gazebos whenever I wanted to collect my share and I never had a week where I wasn’t satisfied with the produce I was able to bring home- nothing went to waste!”
“We are VERY happy we joined and can’t wait to sign up again next spring. My kids LOVED going & picking out “our share” every week. It was nice that the number of choices seemed to grow as the season progressed. It feels good to be so intimately connected to local food- thanks for giving us the opportunity to ‘farm’ with you! ps. Those weekly recipes were great, my kids tried new foods if I told them your kids liked it 😊”
