  1. Hi, How is a couple different from the family? Will you consider me with my wife a couple share or a family share?

    1. Hi Dwipen – thanks for your question! The Family Share is larger than the Couples Share. Family Shares contain either additional items beyond what the Couples Share contains, or larger quantities of items in the Couples Share, depending on what is available for harvest each week. I’d usually recommend starting with a Couples Share for two folks – you’d always be welcome to up-size to a Family Share any time, too.

      Best wishes,
      Kristin
