Farm Share

Rent mother nature certificateHere's a thoughtful, green gift idea: Give top performers or clients a "lease" on farm produce or dairy products through Rent Mother Nature. The Vermont-based firm, which represents small local farmers, sends a certificate for the lease of your choice to the recipient; when the produce is ripe or the cheese (from goats or cows) is ready, they get a delivery straight from the farm. Cost: $30 and up, bulk discounts available. (800) 232-4048;
