The River Queen Greens Farm Share is a 7+ month choice-based weekly veggie subscription program offered throughout our prime growing season.
Farm Shares typically include a robust selection of greens, including a variety of salad, cooking, and microgreens, as well as root veggies, fresh herbs, and other seasonal favorites. Most of the veggies are grown by us at our Certified Naturally Grown New Orleans farm, with supplemental produce and add-on farm products (like eggs, honey, and seasonal fruit) from a few other local farmers and producers.
Participating in a farm share is a great way to support local agriculture and local food, and eat healthy while you do it. Enjoy some of the freshest, most nutrient-dense produce available in New Orleans every week.

Small Shares: $27/week.
Typically includes 6-7 items, intended to feed 1-2 people eating moderate amounts of veggies per week.
When you first sign up, you'll input your credit card information. You can select:
Pay upfront. Pay the whole price for the season at once - the traditional CSA payment model.
Pay-as-you-go. As the season progresses, you'll be charged per week.
There's no additional subscription fee. You may cancel at any time without penalty.
If you sign up after the start of the season, your share will be prorated, and you'll be charged a deposit at the time you sign up, and then the remaining balance will be evenly divided each week for the remainder of the season. For a more detailed explanation of how GrownBy prorates weekly payments, click here.
Every transaction adds a $0.30 transaction fee, which means if you choose to pay-per-week, you'll be charged an extra $0.30 each week. Paying upfront will incur a single $0.30 charge. See "Farm Credit" below for additional strategies for minimizing this transaction fee over the course of the season.
If you anticipate that you'll purchase extra items, like eggs and seasonal fruit, we recommend purchasing additional farm credit, which will be an option when you check out. Farm credit will be automatically applied to purchases you make as the season progress. By purchasing Farm Credit upfront, you can reduce the number of $0.30 transaction fees that occur with each purchase.
Note - Farm Credit is automatically applied to all future transactions, so if you're on a pay-as-you-go payment schedule, credit will be used up by your farm share charges too.
We hope when you sign up that you'll stick with your share for the whole 30-week season, but we understand that circumstances change and do allow members to cancel their shares throughout the season.
Buy Farm Shares with SNAP
Use your EBT card to pay for your Farm Share or Veggie Box on site. Once again we're partnering with Market Umbrella to use Market Match - a program that matches SNAP dollars 1 for 1 - which means that all SNAP users can pay half price for their Farm Shares!
If you are interested in using an EBT card to purchase a Farm Share or Veggie Box, or know someone who might be, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how this works.
Please note, you cannot use your EBT card to pay through GrownBy, so you must contact us to arrange this on-site payment option.
We are offering a limited number of half-priced Community Shares for members who cannot afford to pay full price and don't have SNAP. Please be considerate and honest about your need.
