Farm Share Program
After seeing a strong interest from the community in receiving locally grown food on a consistent basis in our inaugural year, Fishers Parks staff has worked in the AgriPark's off season to develop the Fishers AgriPark Farm Share for 2021!
This program, a subscription-style service, sets aside a portion of our produce for weekly pickup, June through September.
Participants for our 2021 season have been chosen, and registration is closed at this time.

Subscribers can expect to receive 10-15 pounds of fresh, local produce each week in their box.
What types of foods will I receive?
Weekly produce will vary based on what’s “in season” and ready for harvest on the farm. At the start of the season, subscribers can expect more cold-hardy veggies like kale, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, sugar snap peas, and more. Later in the summer, fresh tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash, strawberries, sweet corn, etc. will be more readily available. See a complete list of what’s grown throughout the year at the AgriPark.
How will I receive my box?
Pickup is available Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings at the Fishers AgriPark, 11171 Florida Road, Fishers.
How often will I receive my box?
Weekly for 15 weeks.
When will I start receiving my box?
Farm Share subscribers will begin picking up produce boxes the week of June 1, with pickup dates on June 3 and 5.
When will I stop receiving my box?
The last farm share boxes of the season will be available for pickup the week of September 5. Depending on produce availability, Fishers Parks may extend the program through the end of September as part of the subscription.
What if I am on vacation and can't pick up my box for the week?
Please coordinate for a friend or family member to take your share the week you will be gone, or you can coordinate with farm staff for a double box the week you return.
Do you have half shares available?
We only have one size share this year. If you feel like this will be too much for one family or household, please consider sharing with friends or family. We estimate 10-15 pounds of produce each week, which should feed 3-4 people or 2-3 plant-based diets.
How are the box items and produce sourced?
All food items included in each week’s box are planted, grown, and harvested at the Fishers AgriPark.
