Free Bird Farm

497 McKinley Road

Our certified organic produce shares are meant to supply enough high-quality vegetables for a veggie-loving family or couple who love to cook. While we do grow some less common vegetables and varieties, we tend to focus on vegetables that are most familiar and loved. We do provide recipes, cooking tips and a list of what's in each week's share at site (for newcomers, it's a good way to get a sense for what a share is like).

Eggs, pasture-raised chicken and fruit shares are also available, depending on the distribution location.

Concerned that a share might be too much for your household? Split it with a friend or neighbor. Many members do just that.
