2011-12 Winter CSA on sale now!

Hello All!

The winter CSA is officially on sale now. Please consider joining us in this annual venture into the world of eating locally and well all winter right here in Central NY! Paul and I truly love the winter CSA - the crops that we are able to provide in the winter are crops that grow great in this climate. We are supposed to eat carrots, onions, potatoes, cabbage, kale and beets here in the cold months! Paul and I are still a little bit amazed that winter CSAs are real, and are tickled pink that we actually have one. We have not set the day of the week that we will distribute on yet, we will do that as soon as we can. Here's what we do know:
There are 7 distributions, and a share pays for 6, so there is a built- in miss.
The distributions are every other week, with a 3 week break in January.
We will start the week of Thanksgiving.
There is enough food per distribution to last the average shareholder for 2 weeks.
The share will be set up the same as last year's winter CSA. Members can select a bag worth of produce from each side of the distribution shed. (2 bags total per distribution). The set up is basically like the One Bag Side except there are two sides, and you can fill two bags, one from each side. I hope that makes sense.
The distributions will be in the barn with the cozy addition of a wood stove.
The winter share price this year is $300. If you have already signed up you are grandfathered into the $275 price.
potatoes, carrots, onions, leeks, beets, cabbage, parsnips, radishes, kale, greens, turnips, celeriac, winter squash, and rutabagas.
We will send out the official distribution dates as soon as we can.
$50 down payment
Sign up early and sign up often! We love the winter CSA and think that you will too.

This week's veggies:
leeks, carrots, potatoes, beets, cabbage, head lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, broccoli, watermelon radishes, hakurei, kohlrabi, Chinese cabbage, tomatoes, arugula (got swamped out with the hurricane rains so this is the last week of arugula), broccoli raab

RASPBERRIES- remember, we plant fall-bearing raspberries, so they are supposed to be awesome right now, and they are!
green beans
