Comparing Full and Half Share Baskets

We are often asked whether a full or half share is right for a particular family. We have some general guidelines. Usually a single person or couple will be happy with a half share. Families of four or more prefer full shares. However, vegetarians and people who cook at home every day often opt for full shares even for a single person. Some families find a half share to be perfect. We found a few pictures that may help you to visualize the amounts in a half share versus a full. The top row is October baskets (two slightly different harvests–half on the left, full on the right). The bottom row is August baskets (again, half on the left, full on the right). We will work on taking more comparative photos, especially of the less bountiful Spring and Winter harvests.
