The Winter Share begins in November, just before Thanksgiving, and ends in March. You will receive a share of produce every other week during this time. At each of the 9 pick-ups we offer many cold storage staples such as onions, potatoes, carrots and squash in a mix-and-match fashion. Special items like frozen vegetables and fruit, pesto, pickles, berry jam and sweet apple cider will be offered in specified amounts. Colorful summertime favorites like broccoli, cauliflower, peppers and sweet corn which come from frozen storage are a much loved feature of our Winter CSA. The shares will be comprised largely of our own certified organic produce but some items we offer like cider, cranberries and blueberries will come from local farms which use conventional production methods.
We offer the Winter Share in one size. The cost for a Winter Share is $450.
Pick up locations are at the Presbyterian Curch on the Park in Canton, at 6 Pioneer St. in Potsdam, as well as on the farm.
Payment: We know that Thanksgiving is a long way off, but it is crucial for the successful planning of this offering that participants speak for a share by mid-June. You may hold a winter share by sending us a $50 check or you may pay the full amount at once. Full payment, however you choose to arrange it, is due by mid November.
Shares will contain a combination of the following...
14 lbs. Combined
Cabbage (3 varieties)
Winter Squash (many varieties)
