Helsing Junction Farm Share Giveaway!

YAY! This big Helsing Junction Farm Share giveaway is for all the organic produce-loving Pacific NW residents out there AND the people elsewhere who love them and want to enter on their behalf! It’s such a joy and a gift each week (for 20 weeks!) to receive the beautiful veggies, fruit, cheese, and more from this amazing women owned and operated 42 acre farm. Annie and Sue are inspiring ladies who have been working hard at it for over 25 years. One lucky winner will get a delicious Helsing Junction Farm Small Share for 8 glorious weeks! Spread the word to your friends from or between Portland and Seattle! Good luck, everyone!! ♥ Jen

DELIVERY: PORTLANDSEATTLEBELLEVUETACOMAOLYMPIAMORE LOCATIONS

UPDATE: Congratulations to Rhiannon Leifheit! She won this prize!

WHAT WE GET:
For our household of two, my husband and I had got the Small Share (for 20 weeks), the Fruit Share (for 15 weeks), and the Cheese Share (for 8 weeks) this year. We’ve had the Flower Share (for 12 weeks) in the past which is AMAZING, but I planted so many more roses and other flowers this year that I pulled back. I’m still not sure that was a great decision as I’m looking at photos of the stunning Helsing Junction bouquets I got last year. It’s so worth it and the flowers looked beautiful for 10 days or more — which is crazy. If you enjoy eating out a few times a week, you might occasionally have times where you need to come up with a recipe game plan for freezing or do some fun trades with neighbors, co-workers and friends. Luckily, HJF has a wonderful recipe index and there are LOTS of share choices available!

SHARE OPTIONS: MINI SHARE • SMALL SHARE • LARGE SHARE • HEALING SHARE • PALEO SHARE • SNACK SHARE • JUICE SHARE • FLOWER SHARE • BULK SHARE • STORAGE SHARE • CANNING SHARE • CHEF SHARE • FRUIT SHARE • CHICKEN SHARE • SAUERKRAUT SHARE • YOGURT SHARE • HANDCRAFTED CHEESE SHARE • MORE INFO
