Friends, we have a few openings in our Farm Share program for the current cycle. If you would like to join, please let us know by 5:00pm on Monday, July 27.
The current farm share cycle will last five weeks, beginning this week and ending the week of August 25. You will receive a delivery each Tuesday or Friday (your choice) of a package of our products. You will pick up your share at Coastal Bend Health Foods in Rockport by 6:00pm on your delivery day.
Your share each week will contain a mixture of protein, produce, and baked or prepared items from our farm. We will send you an email with each delivery that includes recipes ideas to help you make the most of your food.
The contents will change each week based on seasonality, availability, and our desire to offer you a wide range of new and interesting products. Here are some of the many wonderful items you can expect:
- Four String Farm beef, pork, chicken, and eggs. The cuts each week will include one or more of the following: fresh whole chicken, pork roast, T-bone or rib-eye steaks, thin-cut pork chops, thick-cut pork chops, sirloin steaks, pork ribs, country ribs, beef short ribs, ground pork, ground beef, soup bones, stew meat, and much more–all chemical free and grown on our farm)
- Freshly baked bread and other baked items
- Four String Farm and other local produce (varies depending upon availability). Late summer is a tough time for produce. For this farm share, we are supplementing our harvest with produce from other local farms or organic produce from Kimmi’s store.
- Prepared goods using local and organic ingredients, such as jam, pate, pickles, lard, salsa, sauces, etc.
The cost for your share is $61 per week, or $305 for the five-week period. We will accept the payment in two installments (check or cash), the first $183 due upon your first pick-up date. We only have a few openings, and they will fill fast.
To sign up for your share, please e-mail us by Monday at 5:00pm at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you friends for shopping locally!
Oh, my. Don’t I wish I were closer! I’d be on your list by now. But good for you, that your slots fill so fast. I’m not surprised.
It is a tough time for produce. Nearly everything local here is gone now, except for limas, purple hulls, eggplant, Japanese eggplant, and okra. I am still getting peaches, cantaloupe and blueberries from a farm three hours north (they come to a market here every weekend.) But the good times are nearly gone, and we’ll have to wait for fall gardens.
Just out of curiosity, is it possible to purchase meat from you apart from the share program, or are your supplies too limited for that?
Hello! Yes, our products are pretty now to the farm share. Selling exclusively through this program has been working well for us and our customers. It is a remarkably efficient way to do business and keep our customers well-stocked with good things.
I love that you are still getting all of that great produce! Our gardens are burning up, and this far south there is very little growing around us. We are networking with several South Texas growers to keep local produce in the share, but it is tough. We are already moving our livestock onto our gardens to fertilize them for the Fall. The next produce for us may be cactus fruit!
We appreciate you so much, and I love your writing. I am terrible about commenting and liking and etc, and lately have been reading mostly from my phone, which I don’t like, but it’s the only way I can get to it. Thanks for all of your beautiful words and stories, Justin
Please sign me up. I met you at aransas pass extension off during a program that you gave on soil this spring. My wife and I really enjoyed your program. We also discussed your farm share program. I mentioned that we raise our own beef. I know you can’t afford to let everybody pick and choose. But if the opportunity ever arises please don’t hesitate to limit my beef. Please sign us up. Thanks James

Hello James! We have you signed up, please check your e-mail for details. Thank you so much for your partnership with our farm! We hope you enjoy it! Justin
Is there a way to “share” a farm share. I am single and do not need every week. Perhaps there is someone else like me out there that would like every other week.
Hello Anita! There may be a way to accommodate you with the share. We will announce the farm share openings on this site. Can you possibly try to find someone you know who would like to share? Or, we will try to match you with someone, depending on availability. Thank you so much for your interest, Anita! All the best to you!
Do you have anything available for July? Could we sit it into 2 payments (biweekly).
Hello Heather! We should have some openings in July. We can put you on the waiting list and contact when there are any openings. We normally take the payment at the beginning at the month, we don’t currently have an option for bi-weekly payments. Thank you so much for your interest in our farm, we look forward to seeing you! All the best, Justin
