Customizable Spring and Fall Farm Shares
River Queen Greens offers customizable farm shares during our prime growing season, September through June, delivered to several convenient locations in New Orleans. We're excited to use a farm share management platform called Harvie, which allows us to offer you choice-based shares and has many other user-friendly features..
Farm Shares typically have 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 two New Orleans sites, with supplemental produce and add-on farm products (like eggs and mushrooms) from a few of other local, sustainable farms.
Farm Share members can choose to receive weekly or every other week shares. Another option is to sign up to receive notications for our Farm Stand, which allows you to purchase one-time shares whenever we have extra produce available, which we typically do. We're also offering a limited amount of subsidized Community Shares. Please fill out the linked form to request a Community Share.
Participating in a farm share like ours is a great way to support local agriculture and local food. We also believe that it should be a great service to you and your family and friends. By signing up for our farm share, you'll be able to enjoy the flexibility and convenience of customization and delivery to your neighborhood, and you'll be eating some of the freshest, most nutrient-dense produce available in New Orleans every week.

Buy Farm Shares with SNAP
We are now able to accept SNAP EBT card payments on site. In addition, we'll be 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 know someone who might be, please contact us at email@example.com to learn more about how this works.
Please note, you cannot use your EBT card to pay through Harvie, so you must contact us to arrange this payment option. Additionally, we are only accepting SNAP for seasonal Farm Share members, not for Farm Stand purchases.
