Winter Shares Open: Veggies, Eggs & Chicken - We loved doing winter CSA last year and we love the idea of growing food all year round. 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.

  • 9 weeks: December 5 – January 31
  • Pickup (only): Wednesdays, 3:30 – 7 PM at the Farm Stand on Founders Drive
  • Vegetables, eggs and chicken all available, all in limited numbers
  • Sign Up Here!
