GROWN IN DETROIT’S THANKSGIVING SHARES
Grown in Detroit’s 2015 Thanksgiving Share supply your family with delicious local produce just in time for your holiday feast or harvest celebration. In the tradition of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), you purchase a “share” of what the farm has to offer this season and then pick up your box the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (November 24th).
We are offering a half share (approximately 20 lbs), a full share (approximately 35 lbs), with an option of a ‘Detroit Grown and Made’ bonus of 4 local value-added products.

Make your share a “Taste of Detroit” for just $40 more. Bring color, flavor, and great conversation to your table with specialty products from local food entrepreneurs that feature Grown in Detroit produce!
