We opened registration for our Winter CSA to our current Summer CSA members in August. We absolutely love our CSA members, and fully understand what a key part of our business our CSA is. These are customers who are fully committed to fresh local produce and are willing to financially commit to it. Much of what we do every day is to make our CSA as good as it can be. We have been blessed that our CSA is filled to our farming capacity! This is wonderful! We try hard to keep these committed foodie members happy, so we always allow priority CSA sign up for current members. Signups are open to members one month prior to being offered to the general public. We never want an existing member to lose their spot. September 1st we will open to the public. Here is a little secret: We are working hard to be able to expand our farming capacity. Stay tuned!
We have planted lots of beautiful cool season produce for our winter CSA, including kale, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, arugula, rabe, beets, turnips, sweet potatoes, winter squash, pumpkins and much more. Winter produce is not only delicious, it is super nutritious. Winter CSA lasts from November 1st until January 31st. Most of the produce comes in November and December. By January, it is a true test of our veggie loving CSA members because the crops that are still around during the coldest part of the winter include storage crops such as sweet potatoes, winter squash, turnips and beets. Only the hardiest of leafy vegetables can grow in the winter. This includes things like curly kale, collard greens, and some mustards. I like the winter crops better than the summer crops. I know people love summer because of all the fruit. I am an anomaly. I love veggies, especially greens! Not only do I love winter crops, I think I grow them better than summer crops. All of my farming Mojo comes out in the winter.
