Milk, Egg & Bread Shares

Traditionally shares have been associated with vegetable farms. You pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season and are entitled to a ‘share’ each week of the harvest. We have decided to use this model for milk, eggs and bread. By making a commitment for these items each week, you allow the farmers (and bakery) to plan their production each week. You may elect to participate in one, two, or all three shares.

All shares last 13 weeks and pickups begin the week of May 2. You can select a convenient pickup day and your shares will be ready for you.

Click here to download the share order form. Print, complete the form and drop it off at the store. If you have any questions, we will be happy to help. Stop by or give us a call.

Artisan

An artisan (from Italian: artigiano) is a skilled manual worker who crafts items that may be functional or strictly decorative, including furniture, clothing, jewelry, household items, and tools. Artisan is also used to describe the producer of hand-crafted foods that require an advanced level of knowledge and skill.

At Farmers & Artisans, we use artisan as an adjective suggestive of handmade goods and old-fashioned craftsmanship. A term bestowed upon the products of the cheesemaker, breadbaker, sausagemaker, etc., who labors in his or her craft, independent of the pressures of industrial food, to produce high quality, small-batch edibles.

Some of our artisan products are also farmstead, meaning these foodstuffs, usually cheeses, are made on-site at the very farm where the dairy animals are kept and milked (or, in the case of other farmstead goods, where the pertinent crops are grown).
