A Bounty of Food Share Options


This year there is no shortage of food share options available to Teton Valley residents. Currently, three companies are offering up goods to fill your fridge and pantry this summer.

Cosmic Apple Gardens, based in Victor, is entering its 21st year with its summer vegetable CSA program. For sixteen weeks, beginning in June, you can receive a share of five to 15 seasonal items per week. A full share tends to provide enough weekly vegetables for a household of two to four people, while a half share is adequate for one or two people. In addition to your vegetable share, for an added cost, registrants may elect to add on a Lark’s Meadow Cheese Share or 460 Bread Share.

At time of sign up, shareholders must select a day and time for their weekly pick up. Currently available are Fridays from 5 to 7 p.m. at Owen Bircher Park in Wilson, 250 E. Broadway in Jackson, or at Cosmic Apple Gardens in Victor. Failure to pick up your share at the designated place and time will result in a forfeiture of that week’s share. Share prices currently run at $575 for a full share and $405 for a half share. A baguette share can be added for an additional $60, a loaf of bread per week for $100, or two loaves per week for $180.

Bring more omega-3 fatty acids and protein into your life by purchasing a share of wild Bristol Bay sockeye salmon from Pride of Bristol Bay. A small family business of Alaska fisherman, Pride of Bristol Bay delivers beautiful red salmon fillets directly to Teton Valley consumers through its share program. Until March 28, consumers can reserve a 20 pound case of salmon fillets for $239.80. Pick up is April 1 at Jackson Whole Grocer. Reserve your share online at: https://prideofbristolbay.com/product/salmon-fillets/. At time of sign up, shareholders may elect to pay in full or make a 10 percent deposit to secure the order.

Roots Kitchen and Cannery, originally based out of Bozeman, Montana, brings a delicious selection of canned goods and ready-made meals to potential share participants. By signing up for their quiche or pie of the week program, consumers will receive Roots Kitchen creations conceived of fresh and seasonal ingredients. This CSA program runs for twelve weeks, beginning July 8, with pickup at the Saturday morning famers market in downtown Jackson. The cost of the program is currently running at $250 ($50 off normal pricing). For an additional $180, shareholders will also receive one jar of Roots’ award winning pickles, jams, sauces, or cocktail syrups.
