Shared Harvest is an extended season CSA for late fall meals and winter storage. Shares are distributed once per month in October, November, and December. You can choose to sign up for either a 3-month share or a 2-month share (just Nov and Dec). This year, we are also offering a limited number of deep winter shares, with pickups in January and February at Wright-Locke Farm in Winchester. Details on the Jan/Feb option will come soon.
Share Contents: We’ve planned to include a nice variety of cold-season veggies (+apples!) in the share. Here’s what we’ve got planned: apples, beets, broccoli, bok choi, Brussels sprouts, cabbage (green, red and napa varieties), cauliflower, carrots, celeriac, collard greens, dried beans, escarole, fennel, garlic, kale, lettuce, leeks, onions (red and yellow varieties), parsnips, pie pumpkins, peppers (green and red), potatoes, popcorn, radicchio, rutabagas, salad turnips, sweet potatoes, Swiss chard, shallots, spinach, two kinds of winter radishes and winter squash including delicata, kabocha and butternut.
You can read about what has been in past Shared Harvest shares by looking through the blog archives for the months of October, November and December. Here’s a link to summaries of contents of the winter share from recent years. The 2013 share will be similar, with a few adjustments that reflect shareholder feedback.
