Winter Produce

If you can’t stand the thought of going back to produce from the grocery store, this is a great way to extend the summer season into winter! Produce is stored in dugouts, pits, and straw-bale buildings. We are learning how to store “the old fashioned way” to reduce our dependency on utilities.

Members receive produce every other week from November through February.

beets

**Some tender produce from the previous summer may be included if they have survived a light freeze.

Members pick up their produce at one of a variety of locations twice monthly.

One package size is available for the winter share. You are welcome to divide a share with another household, especially if you are a single-person household. All payments must come from one member only. Details and prices for the winter membership are available on the Sign Up Form.
