Interesting seasonal items

A winter CSA is much more than just roots. It has a seasonality of its own.

In the late fall, we still have hearty green vegetables coming out of the field:

Broccoli, Kale, Leeks, Spinach, Swiss Chard

In the deep mid winter all manner of interesting roots are augmented with

 pickles, dry beans and winter spinach.

In the early spring months, delicious lettuce and greens come from our greenhouses.

 

Winter greens from the greenhouse

We try to have some greens from the greenhouse every month of the year.

Itís very exciting to be able to extend the season this way.

 January and February are the tough months, and last winter was particularly harsh.

Thereís no guarantees, but weíll try for every month again this year.

 

We store it

If youíve ever tried root cellaring winter vegetables,

you probably found out itís not as easy as it sounds.

We have 4 separate climate controlled rooms for winter storage.

You can enjoy winter vegetables without the hassle of a root cellar.

 

How it works:


1) Pick a Share Size We offer 3 Winter CSA Share sizes

Traditionally there was one share size and it had 5lbs of Carrots and 5 lbs of Potatoes every month.
Some people have had a hard time eating their way through so many Potatoes and Carrots.
Other folks find it's easy as can be to eat that much of both.
***Now you can choose 2 lbs or 5 lbs of either Carrots or Potatoes***

Our Standard share:
Has 5 lbs of Carrots and 5 lbs of Potatoes every month.

Our Medium Share:
Has 2 lbs of either Carrots or Potatoes and 5 lbs of the other, every month.

Our Small Share
Has 2 lbs of Carrots and 2 lbs of Potatoes every month

When you sign up you will choose either 2 or 5 lbs of Potatoes and 2 or 5 Lbs of Carrots .

Winter Share Agreement

I understand that I am buying a share of the harvest at Lewis Creek Farm for the 2023-
2024 winter season, subject to availability, weather and storage conditions. I understand
that I am sharing the risks inherent to agriculture which in the summer include but are
not limited to drought, flooding, hail and frost, but in the winter can also include ice and
snow storms, loss of electrical power and any number of variables affecting storage. In a
normal year participants in the program will receive 7 monthly installments of vegetables.
The vegetables available will be chosen by Lewis Creek Farm and not all vegetables
listed or grown on the farm will necessarily be available through this program. I
understand that each monthís share is seasonal and perishable and that it has no value
that can be credited towards a future date should I miss a month for any reason.
