Winter CSA is currently full.

 

Hello!  It’s time to start signing members up for our Winter Time CSA!  We still have a few weeks left in our main season CSA which will bring us to the end of November (last pick-up will be the Tuesday before Thanksgiving).  After the last Summer/Fall pick-up we continue with a 14-week share through the months of December, February, and March (we do not hold pick-ups during the month of January).

Below are the details and pick-up info for the season.  Important to note that pick-ups are every other week, pre-bagged, and there are no pick-ups in January.

Details: The Winter CSA is a 14-week share that runs through December, February, and March (no pick-up in January)… We condense the weekly shares into one pick-up every other week.  This way you will not have to travel to the pick-up every week but will pick up two weeks worth of vegetables at one pick-up.  The crops we are selling in the winter will last for a long time in your fridge so you don’t have to worry about things spoiling over the two weeks.  We will be pre-bagging the shares, so you will simply come to the pick-up and we will pass over your bags.

We will be offering winter-harvested greens from our greenhouses every week such as kale, bok choi and spinach as well as garlic, onions, potatoes, rutabagas, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, leeks, celeriac, fall radishes, turnips, daikon radishes, and parsnips.  In early December and late March there may be some other hardy vegetables available as well.

Price: A Winter CSA share is $300. (EBT can be accepted for Winter CSA shares)

Where and When?  Pick-up will be at the Bell Street Chapel (5 Bell Street Providence) on Thursdays from 5-7pm (the pick-up window is tighter, please be aware).  If you would prefer to pick-up at the farm we can leave your bags in a cooler.  The dates will be as follows:  Dec.7th, Dec. 21st, Feb. 1st, Feb. 15th, March 1st, March 15th, March 29th.

There is a limit of shares that we can accommodate in the winter so sign-up early!  Payment can be made anytime between now and the first pick-up.  Payment plans are also available.
