NewsYucaipa Farm Share begins on June 6, 2017
The City of Yucaipa and the Healthy Yucaipa Committee have partnered with Old Grove Orange to provide locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables to Yucaipa residents through the Farm Share program. Old Grove Orange is a group of more than thirty Southern California small farmers. They have banded together to offer the Yucaipa community an incredible variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. By eating local, you can help keep farms in your neighborhoods, support local jobs, preserve citrus heritage, reduce the carbon footprint, and enjoy the freshest fruits and vegetables.
How it Works
Old Grove Farm Share is a weekly subscription of locally grown fruits and vegetables. Farm share holders will be able to pick-up their produce from neighborhood locations in a Farmers Market style environment. Farm share holders must pay ALL six weeks in advance to participate. There are two types of shares: a full share and a medium share.
What You Get
Every week, you will receive a fixed set of food that includes fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, one herb (with full share), and one “adventurous” fruit or vegetable. There is enough variety to make salads or enjoy on-the-go snacks. Full shares (good for a family of four) generally have a selection of five different kinds of fruits, five different kinds of vegetables, and an herb. Medium shares (good for singles and couples) are half of the full share of fruits, vegetables, and no herb. On a week to week basis, the fruits, vegetables and herbs are 80% to 85% certified or transitional organic.
