Late Fall CSA and Winter CSA Membership Now Available
Other News
By Derek McGeehan
Watering in grass and clover seed sown in the subtle swales that were created for water management around our replacement movable 'hoop tunnel'. The original structure collapsed under snow load way back during the winter of 2010-2011. This simple structure of metal pipes covered in plastic provides enough protection to allow cold-hardy plants to thrive during the winter months. Think spinach, lettuce mix, baby Swiss chard, claytonia, and bok choy.
2017 Late Fall CSA
  • Full, Medium, and Half Shares are available for the 6th annual 6-week season.
  • Prices remain the same as last season: $180 for Full; $130 for Medium; $100 for Half.
  • A deposit of $50 or full payment secures your share; full payment is due by November 1st; if you join after November 1st full payment is due to finalize registration.
  • Pick up days are: Wednesday 1-8pm or Saturday 11am-12noon (you choose a day but you can switch temporarily by notifying us in advance).
  • Begins immediately following conclusion of Main Season CSA Harvest Week #26 (Week B, week of November 5th).
  • Late Fall Harvest #1 (Week A) is scheduled for week of November 12th.
  • Concludes week of December 17th.
  • No workshift discount/commitment.
  • A cold hardy fall themed continuation of the Main Season share with tasty staples like chard, spinach, lettuce, radicchio, arugula, mizuna, tatsoi, bok choy, kale, collards, cabbage, Napa cabbage, cilantro, dill, parsley, leeks, garlic, scallions, onions, beets, radishes, turnips, carrots, celeriac, kohlrabi, potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
  • Each cold season we make improvements to ensure a steady supply of fresh crops, not just storage ones. We now use 4 growing structures to extend the growing season; during our first Late Fall CSA back in 2012 we only had the high tunnel. So, our footprint has effectively tripled (each structure differs somewhat in size) and we now also add heat to the greenhouse for insurance/assurance.
  • A Full Share receives approximately 8-12 pounds of produce weekly, a Half Share every other week, and a Medium Share receives 2/3 of a Full Share weekly.
  • **During the week of Thanksgiving, Late Fall Harvest Week #2, Wednesday's pick up is on Tuesday, November 21st to accommodate travelers and holiday schedules (we'll accommodate your schedule, too)**. This is the only pick up anomaly.
  • To join, log in to the website here; the 'join' button will be on the left hand side of your members page.
  • Membership is limited and is at capacity at around 50% of the Main Season number so don't delay!
  • Worried about farm accessibility this time of year? Don't worry! Our goal is to keep the driveway clean and tidy with stone applications as needed (i.e. fill in the potholes). Last winter our tractor was at the shop for months so we were less able to maintain the driveway - sorry for that!
