Winter CSA Share 2017

We are busy  tending to the winter garden and veggies are looking mighty good!

Eat like a farmer, all winter long! In the deep, dark winter months our family relishes  biting into a crisp spinach salad or cracking open a jar of carrot-tomato soup. We want to share that with YOU! Using our Vermont summer harvest and season extension High Tunnels we provide a copious amount of “stored farm goods”.  The Vermont tradition of storage ranges from cellaring, freezing, canning, fermenting and holding in the Hi-Tunnels. 

The Share period starts Tuesday October 10 and ends February 13. Shares are distributed every other week  for a total of 10 deliveries.  Share comes with one unique prepared dish, usually something that can be reheated easily (egg rolls, spanikopita, empanadas, sun dried tomato polenta). The prepared dish should feed two adults as part of a meal or 4 people as a side dish or tasting.  We can accommodate dietary needs however, if you have severe allergies and need to opt out of the dinner, we can accommodate. 

Regular share is adequate for 2 adults with small children 

Large share is adequate for a family of 5

We have payment plans and work-trade opportunities available. And we are happy to offer the NOFA-VT Farm Share Program. More details at http://www.nofavt.org/farmshare 

Regular Shares are priced at $650 ( $65 for two weeks of food) and the Large Share is priced at $950 ($95 for two weeks of more food). Beef and/or Pork Shares are also available for add on’s. Shares can be picked up at a Kenyon’s Hardware Store in Northfield, Roger’s Farmstead in Berlin or Roxbury every other Tuesday from 3 pm to 6 pm. 

All food items are delivered in one box. All items will be in one box that you pick up and take with you (you will need to remember to return them each share). A freezer bag for frozen items is placed in the box and dinner items are in glass-containers. We are ask for a deposit, a separate check ($40/reg share and $60/large share) that will encourage you to return the items at the end  of the share season. The deposit is returned once all boxes, bags and containers are returned.

A deposit of $100 will hold your spot OR pay in full by October 1st and save $10. Remaining Payments can be made in three installments of

$285  plus a separate $40 check payable by October 1 ($185 if already paid deposit), (Large Share add $100, plus a $60 separate check) $182.50 payable by December 1 (Large Share add $100) $182.50 payable by January 1 (Large Share add $100)

If using the above Payment Plan, ALL POST-DATED CHECKS MUST BE SENT TOGETHER, we will cash the checks on the payable date

An early Share may look like this (example only)

fresh Swiss chard, head lettuce, spinach, carrots, broccoli, onions, pie pumpkin, frozen berries, frozen basil pesto, Carrot-Ginger Eggrolls with Sweet and Sour Sauce

A mid-winter Share may look like this (example only)

Asian greens, salad mix, winter radishes, green cabbage, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, winter squash, garlic, leeks, frozen corn, pickles, Spanikopita

A late winter Share may look like this (example only)

spinach, pea shoots, red cabbage, beets, carrots, shallots, sweet potatoes, dried tomatoes, frozen broccoli, blueberry jam, Sweet Potato Empanadas

This is a great value for the money! It looks like a LOT of food and it is. BUT. We help you plan how to use it so that you systematically get through it all in two weeks without waste and it doesn’t mean huge nights in the kitchen! Fresh greens first. Save your prepared dish for a night when you really need it as it can be frozen. Work through the storage veggies as time permits as they aren’t going anywhere. You will feel good about what you are eating!
