Future Information

Unfortunately, 4/2 will likely be the last Full Plate and Fruit Bowl shares share until our regular season picks up in June. Neither our farms or our local partners have enough veggies or fruit in storage.


We will let you know via the newsletter if this changes and we are able to offer anything else!


We won't forget about you though!! We also plan to continue updating those on our listserv about shares and food offerings from other local farms and foodies through April and beyond.

Summer CSA Information

According to the Governor's orders, farmers and food delivery drivers are essential workers!!!  That is to say, we do not anticipate problems getting food to you no matter how long this period drags on!

The farms are working now to begin seeding and field prep that will allow us to feed the community for the year to come. We are moving ahead with the summer/fall CSA as usual! One certainty is that our farms will continue to grow food for YOU, our members! 

And we will always share it in a way that feels safe for all members and farms. Of course it is our hope that we will all be back to "normal" come summer, but we are aware that that may not be the case. With the ever changing and unprecedented state of the world in this era of COVID, we don't feel comfortable making any official decisions about if and how to modify the CSA to be a safe space until late May.

It is our hope that planning for the CSA as usual offers folks a sense of security in knowing they will have access to nourishing produce through much of the coming year and have so far been very pleased by the continued support and commitment of the CSA community! When necessary, I am sure we can all adapt together!


Accessibility notes...

For those vulnerable or immune compromised, please remember that we offer delivery to homes in the city of Ithaca and the village of Trumansburg. 

For those worried about affording shares due to loss of income, please be in touch and we can discuss options for accessibility. Our one time vegetable shares and full season shares can be subsidized 50% thanks to Healthy Food For All.

Regarding the Governor's Mandate:

We do not anticipate new restrictions to be a problem in getting you food!

Farms and agricultural workers are considered essential workers, as are food delivery drivers so we should not have an issue in getting food to people. And for those who have elected to pick-up it should not be any different than picking up prepared food or groceries curbside.


A letter from your farmers....

Hi Full Platers,

Strange times are upon us. As I try to find moments of calm and identify all that I appreciate in this world I have found myself so grateful to be a part of the Full Plate (and Ithaca!) communities where folks are willing and eager to uplift each other and offer support in times of need.

We wanted to take a moment to offer (as many others have) our acknowledgement of the challenges our community is facing and to reiterate our commitment to you as our friends, neighbors and members. Our farms are still working in preparation for the coming growing season. Now more than ever, we hold close to our intention of providing abundant, nourishing food to you all through and beyond this pandemic.
That is to say, the summer share is being planned for usual and we hope we can offer you a bit of peace in these uncertain times by offering food security through our usual 23 week summer season beginning in June.
But we are aware that that time is a ways off. So,
we are putting together boxed fruit and vegetable shares for purchase on an individual basis

  • These boxes will be available for home delivery in Ithaca/Tburg or for pickup
  • They are open to EVERYONE regardless of Full Plate Membership
  • Sign up information will be sent via the Full Plate newsletter NOT on this website
  • We will be sure to take appropriate sanitation precautions when handling your food.

We hope this offering gives you peace of mind and that the infusion of fresh produce into your homes will give you the immune support we all need right now.

Be well,
The Full Plate

Molly, Nathaniel, Emily, Lucy, Chaw, our families and our farm crews
