Binghamton Farm Share is a vegetable box subscription program managed by VINES and Healthy Lifestyles Coalition. Similar to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), individuals or families sign-up to receive a “share” of fresh vegetables packaged by one of our four participating local farmers.

We’ve added more pick-up sites this year in Binghamton’s North, East, West Sides and Downtown. View our agreement form for more details.  Call 607-238-3522 or email for more information.
