Goings On

Winter Shares – Veggies, Eggs & Chicken
Sign-ups for the winter CSA are open. We loved doing winter CSA last year and we love the idea of growing food all year round. Winter production is a bit of the Undiscovered Country and we plan to grow the program over the next several years. This year we’ll go through the end of January with veggies, eggs and chicken. All shares are limited so we can do our best job without over-extending.

Winter shares may (this is important!) include greens like spinach, kale, Swiss chard, and pac choi; cole crops like cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower; starches like sweet potatoes, potatoes and winter squash; herbs, scallions, shallots and onions; salad fixings; roots like carrots, beets, turnips and radishes; and occasionally summer crops that we put up: tomato sauce, sauerkraut, pesto. It’s a fun, fresh mix. The selection and harvest is quite weather dependent – some crops you’ll see in December but may not hold out into January depending on our winter.

There is one pickup option, Wednesdays at the Farm Stand, and one size vegetable share. As last year, we’ll offer as much choice as possible each week, dependent on what is available to harvest and what we’ve harvested and put up this fall. If you’re curious about winter shares, we can put you in touch with one of last year’s members. Or ping our FB page and ask one of last year’s members to comment.
