WORK SHARES


We have limited space available for our work share program. Its a great way to connect with the farmers and your food. Experience the lifecycle on the farm and be a part of some very rewarding work.  For each hour worked, you earn $11.00 in credit for anything harvested from or sold at the farm. Typical work would include weeding, transplanting, building trellises or raised beds, mucking, cleaning and organizing, feeding, watering, and a variety of other jobs.  Make sure to let us know if you have a special skill set we might use.

You can mail applications directly to us at the farm, but we'd love to meet you in person and encourage you to drop them off so we can!  

FARM SHARES

Farm Shares go on sale January 1st to May 1st.  Shares are sold in increments of $100.  When you are purchasing a farm share you essentially are pre-buying product at a discount.  Each Farm Share will get you $115 in product.  You can use this towards anything: meat, veggies or other products. Farm Shares do not expire.

Here at Olde Haven Farm we have many partnership opportunities available.  That is what CSA's and Farm Shares really are...you are partnering with us and cheering us on!  We appreciate your support and hope you love what we are able to give you in return.  

You can order your farm shares here.
