While not certified organic by any organization, Procter Farm is managed using organic principles and sustainable techniques. We utilize crop rotation, cover crops, compost, manure and cultural practices to stay one step ahead of most pests and diseases. We apply a few certified organic biologically-based insect repellents to some of our more vulnerable plants and purchase organic fertilizer to add to our beds before planting.
What you receive in your share from week to week is dependent on what is currently ripe in the season. You will receive different vegetables in June than you will in September.
Crops are harvested based on what is ready at that particular point in the season. Their quantity is based on the overall cost of the share. If you get a vegetable that you don’t like, ask around and see if other shareholders picking up their boxes would like to trade!
1) Procter Center, London Ohio – Tuesdays from 2:30pm – 7:00pm 2) North Market, Columbus Ohio – Saturdays from 8:00am - Noon 3) Gabrielle’s Place, Cincinnati Ohio – Tuesday from 4:00 – 6:00pm
Picking up your share is your responsibility. If you are going to be out of town, you may arrange for someone else to come and pick it up for you. Just have that person give your name so we can record that your box for that week was received.
If even the half share seems like a few too many vegetables to get through in a week you are welcome to share the share with a friend. The share box must be picked up as is and divided among the sharing parties themselves. Procter Farm must have the last name of both participating groups if both will be picking up the share at some point.

arugula, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, sweet corn, cucumber, eggplant, garlic, green beans, bok choy, scallions, hot peppers, kale, leeks, lettuce, onions, peas, potatoes, pumpkins, zucchini, melons, watermelons, fresh herbs
