CSA Shares for 2017 Now Available!
We offer an 8 week Winter CSA Share beginning Thursday, October 19th.
We are proud of the diversity we have in the winter boxes, and there will be some specialty items that we don’t do is the summer shares. Last season, we had fresh cut greens up until the last box of the season at the end of December. If you haven’t had fresh Minnesota winter greens before, you are in for a treat! The cold temps create the most wonderful flavor and texture, and it seems that our baby mixes store in your fridge for longer- up to two weeks with spinach!
The program will be 8 weeks long starting right after the main season, starting Thursday 10/19. Pick up days will be Thursdays. At the start of the Winter CSA, the boxes will include mostly fresh crops from outdoors as well as greens from the tunnels. As the season progresses, we will have less freshly harvested crops and more from storage—this depends on how cold it gets early on, but there should always be something fresh in each box.
We have two share sizes this year with 5-8 different crops in each box. The Half Share will be in the same ½ bushel box as the summer season, and the Full Share will be packed into a 5/9 bushel box. The cost is $176 for a Half Share and $232 for a Full Share. We have two options for payment: you can mail us a check with the order form, or use Paypal on the website. Since we are charged a fee to use Paypal, this is reflected in the price, so sending a check is the cheaper option.
We are proud to offer local food so late in the season and hope you consider joining!
