Winter Farm Share Information
Winter Farm Shares for the 2018/19 Season will run December through March.
Members pick up every other week (3 week gap in December):
December 5 & 19; January 9 & 23; February 6 & 20; March 6 & 20. Pickup times vary (see pickup locations for more information).
What will be in the shares? Local produce from our own growers, including storage crops such as potatoes, onions, cabbage, radishes, root crops, and squash. Greens (spinach, kale, etc.) and lettuce are grown in high tunnels by our farmers. We may also include 1-2 non-produce items in each box, made with our growers' produce and/or natural ingredients, such as maple syrup, honey, or eggs. To fill in any gaps that our farmers can't provide, we will source produce from regional, organic farms with membership in PA-based farmers cooperatives. Winter CSA members have access to our webstore at no additional cost. Items ordered from the webstore may be picked up and paid for at CSA share pickup.
Since pickups will only be every other week, CSA shares will be larger than normal to provide adequate produce for your family. Many of the items will be produce that has a longer shelf life, so it will easily store for the longer intervals between pickups. The size of the Winter Share is similar to a Full Share in the summer/fall.
Cost for 8 Shares is $240.00.
Also available are several add-on options.
Egg Share: 1 dozen eggs/pickup. Eggs come from pastured chickens fed non-GMO grain. $40.00
Ground Beef Share: 2 lb. of grass-fed ground beef at each pickup at only $7.50/lb. (save $.50/lb.) $120.00
Sausage Share: 2 lb. of bulk sausage of various flavors at each pickup at only $7.00/lb. (save $.75/lb.) $112.00
Chicken Share: 1 whole chicken per month (every other pickup), averaging 5 lb. $108.00
