In 2017 we launched our long-planned, month to month subscription CSA program. We call it, Simple Share. We opted to rename our program because it is designed to bring you even more than high-quality local food. Members become part of the farm family, sharing with us not only in the produce of the farm but in the inspiring beauty of a simpler life. Our Simple Share is a thoughtful connection to the land wrapped up in beautiful and sometimes unique fruit and vegetables, and handcrafted, small batch goods.
Our simple shares are a weekly peek into the rich process of agriculture, the sustaining core of our daily lives. We decided to make a highly thoughtful and intentional chain of collaborations between our farm, farming friends and small batch farm-based producers that inherently embody the farm life. Together with our farm family, you will not only eat a little healthier but experience valuable, life-changing inspiration and growth through your weekly exposure to life on the farm.
How does our month to month CSA program work?
Each customer will have the opportunity to sign-up online, with the convenience of your service carrying over from month to month without the need to sign-up each month. Four shares will be distributed each month, you have the freedom to choose which day you pick-up, Monday through Saturday with a basket that you will bring back each week. Upon arriving, our farm market team will walk you through the week's offering.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How many shares will be available for 2018?
A: 300 shares
Q: What kind of items will be in the share?
A: Our shares will follow the seasonal harvests equivalent to one half bushel per week. We will work to maintain a varied offering of fruits, vegetable, and small batch goods.
Q: Are all of your foods local?
A: We grow our own, and have a large local agricultural base specific to the UT area that will contribute a nice portion to our shares. Additionally, we have also had the opportunity to create relationships with other fantastic farmers from Utah and in the West that bring diversity in both growing season and varieties of fruits and veggies. Over time we have tested, tried and curated a select few farmers and small batch producers, that will also be debuting in our shares.
Q: How much are the shares each month?
A: Each share will be set at $150 per month, each month you will be charged on the first day of the month for the following month. You will notice a charge on your credit card billed as *recharge or from Petersen Family Farm.
We bill one month in advance, this allows our buying team the turnaround time necessary to procure the correct amount of fresh and small batch items for all those participating.

Q. Does this replace your summer share CSA?
A. We have opted to extend our shares year round, meaning you are able to participate only in the summer months, year round, or whenever it best suits your lifestyle. Once you sign-up for your first share, you will automatically be enrolled in our month to month subscription, which means you will never lose your place in the Simple Share unless you choose to cancel.
Q: What if I need to skip a week?
A: We recommend you share with your neighbor, a family member or co-worker during the week you are unavailable.
Q: What happens if I forget to pick-up my share?
A: If you are unable to pick-up your share or find a substitute, we will donate the weekly share to an identified local charity in your honor.
Q: What if I need to cancel?
A: The Simple Share enrollment/cancellation period is the 1st through the 26th of each month. Once your sign-up is completed online, enrollment is ensured for the upcoming month and no refunds or cancellations will be accepted. During the month of enrollment, Simple Share members wishing to cancel their subscription for the following month will need to cancel within the first 21 days of each month. This allows us a one week buffer at the end of each month where no enrollments or cancellations will be possible. This buffer week is essential for the farm team to procure and plan for the upcoming month, while still providing a fantastic share and excellent experience.
