Here's the deal on the Winter Share:
Once again, we are pleased to offer our Winter Share for those of you
who want the same great locally-produced, farm fare that you've been
used to, during the cold winter months. Of course, it will still be
seasonal eating, so we're not talking about melons in February. This is
New England, and we're going to eat like it - that means potatoes,
cabbage, carrots, squash, onions, leeks, beets, turnips, rutabagas,
celeriac, kale, and collards. Our goal is to provide your family with a
share of these crops into the winter.
Last winter we had a great experience with our Winter Share as over
300 families made their way through bins of carrots, cabbage, potatoes,
and roots in the cellar (and they even picked kale in the snow).
Overall, their evaluations were very positive and we've decided to
basically keep the share the same for the coming winter.
Here're the other highlights (and improvements):
1) Distribution will happen every other week (Monday thru Sunday) self-serve, directly out of the root cellar.
2) The share will be the same overall size as last year - targeted to be at least 30 lbs per month. Please remember that this is a share of the harvest (and the harvest hasn't happened yet) so quantities will vary. We have plans to harvest MORE carrots and make them a bigger part of the overall share.
3) Distribution will be from December through March.
4) The produce will NOT be washed (too cold for the farmers and the barn water pipes).
5) We will have other local products available for sale during distribution including eggs, yogurt, winter greens, and maple syrup.
6) The produce for the winter share is grown by us, here at Brookfield
Farm, as well as by Michael Docter at Winter Moon Organic Farm in Hadley
(Certified Organic). All of the produce is distributed through the root
cellar at Brookfield Farm.
The cost of the winter share is $140.
