Imagine receiving beautiful, tender greens, herbs and vine crops picked fresh that day waiting for you in your own reusable bag. Imagine that your Farm Share provide career-related educational and entrepreneurial opportunities to Community School students. Imagine still the new agricultural technologies using 1/10th the water, 1/6th the fertilizer and no pesticides or herbicides following the latest in food safety and handling guidelines.
One of the best features of Humboldt Hydro Farm Shares is receiving this amazing produce fall, winter or spring when most local farms are no longer in production.
A Humboldt Hydro Farm Share makes a great gift for family and friends!
The following seasonal Farm Shares are now available to the public:
- Spring 2018: March 29th through June 14th
Farm shares are based on 12-week cycles. Each share offers 7-10 picked-fresh and tender produce every other week.

The Spring 2018 Farm Share costs $100. If you’d like to receive a weekly bag for 12 weeks the cost is $190. Each Farm Share will also receive two reusable produce bags and seasonal recipes. Email notifications will be sent to members for their pick-up days. It’s so easy….and delicious!
