2019 Farm Store Credit Shares
If you plan to be a regular customer at the Farm Store, this program is for you! Make a commitment to the farm in advance of the growing season, and get a 5 to 10% discount on all products sold at our Farm Store – our own vegetables, herbs, and seedlings, as well as products raised by our friends at other local farms. You can also spend your credit at our booth at the Exeter Farmers’ Markets and Seacoast Eat Local Winter Farmers’ Markets.
Credit Shares are available at 3 membership levels. We will add extra credit to your account for paying upfront – $100 (add 5%), $250 (add 8%), or $500 (add 10%). You can spend as much or as little of your credit as you like each time you visit. This is a good option if you’re not quite ready to commit to a CSA share, or if you have an unpredictable summer schedule. The Farm Store is open from late May to October. Registration opens in early December.
Farm Store FAQs
When is the Farm Store open? We will be open Tuesday through Sunday, 9:00am – 6:00pm. Closed on Mondays. We open for the season in late May, and close at the end of October. We typically re-open for at least one “stock your pantry” weekend in mid-November.
How does the “honor system” work? When you shop at the store, you may or may not see one of the farm crew while you’re there. Please make yourself at home! When you’re finished shopping, you’ll need to write down the details of your purchase at the Farm Store counter. You may need to weigh some products to calculate your total. Write down your name and payment method. Farm Store Credit members record all of their purchases in the red 3-ring binder, where there is a page for each member, with all of their account information.
What is the delivery schedule for milk and bread? Brookford Farm delivers milk, yogurt, and cheeses to the store every Friday. Juniper Cottage Bake Shop delivers fresh bread on Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings.
