CHECK BACK SOON TO JOIN FOR THE COMING SEASON
Agriberry Farm offers a fresh approach for Richmond-area fruit lovers!
Reserving a Weekly Share Box from Agriberry Farm means your fridge will be stocked for the week with seasonal, fresh fruits, including berries–the most delicious, nutritious food you can eat. This weekly supply gives you the edge on healthy eating, boosting your nutrition intake and overall health.
No matter what the latest diet trend, fresh fruit is always on the menu!
During the Summer Farm Share Season, members receive a 4-unit (or 8-unit or 12-unit) Share Box each week for 20 weeks, beginning with the strawberry harvest in late April or early May, through the week of September 9. Shares (pro-rated for the number of weeks remaining) are still available for the Summer Farm Share Season.
During the Fall Farm Share Season, members receive a 4-unit (or 8-unit or 12-unit) Share Box each week for 6 weeks, beginning the week of September 23 through October 31. Registration is open now for the Fall Season.
To manage your weekly share, you’ll use an innovative, interactive system called “HARVIE,” which enables you to set your preferences and customize what you’d like to receive from what’s being harvested. Harvie creates a share each week based on your profile and what’s in season, then you have the opportunity to pre-view and adjust your share, if desired. You can also schedule your own vacations and location changes, and you can pre-purchase extra items from what’s available each week, and we’ll have those items added to your box and ready for pickup.

More Information about Your Farm Share!
CUSTOMIZED SHARE BOXES
A frequent request from members of previous seasons was the desire to customize their boxes each week. This season we’re using an interactive customer support system called HARVIE, which will enable you to customize what’s in your share box each week, depending on what’s available from the farm and the preference information you provide. HARVIE will recommend a share box that’s designed just for you each week, and you’ll have the opportunity to pre-view and further adjust your weekly share, if desired.
NEW SHARE SIZES
Share Boxes for the 2019 season will be based on a four “unit” share, and you can increase your savings by purchasing an 8- or even a 12-unit share. As in years past, the size of the “unit” for each fruit will vary, depending on the type of fruit and the point in the harvest season. For example, red raspberries are typically harvested into 1/2-pint containers, cherries might be packed into pint containers, and units of apples, peaches and pears may be based on a specific number of fruit. But rest assured, the units will be clearly defined for you each week.
PRE-PURCHASE OF ADDITIONAL ITEMS
Want to order additional items to be included with your share at pickup? With just a few clicks, we’ll secure payment from your card on file with the system, and those items will be waiting for you in your share box, which means your pickups will be fast and easy, especially if someone else will be picking up for you. And, you won’t need to rush to your pickup location before we sell out of your preferred items.
WEEKLY PAYMENT OPTION
While the pre-season payments are a tremendous support for the farm during the non-harvest months, we understand that not everyone can pay in full in advance. Choose the Payment Plan option at checkout, and your card will be charged automatically each time your share is delivered, keeping it simple and easy for you!
VACATION HOLDS and PICKUP LOCATION CHANGES
Have a vacation planned? Need to change your pick up location for the week? No problem. You can easily use HARVIE to re-schedule your box or change your pick-pick up location to accommodate your busy life.
RECIPE AND STORAGE SUGGESTIONS
Your Share Box will be filled with nature’s “fast food” each week, and almost everything can be eaten just as you receive it. But sometimes you may want recipe suggestions, cooking tips, storage, and food preservation resources and we will work with the HARVIE folks to help ensure you have the information you need via weekly emails and information on Agriberry.com.
Gifting a Farm Share Membership
Want to give a gift of healthy eating, maybe for a young family or college student? Most items in the share boxes need little to no additional preparation in order to be enjoyed. We are HAPPY to help you create a gift membership. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance setting up this special gift.
