2018 CSA Winter Share: $225
Enjoy the bounty of early winter in New England with three (3) Saturday Winter CSA pickups. A winter share offers of all your fall favorites including winter greens and cabbage family crops (brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, cabbages, kale, collard greens) garlic, onions, leeks, carrots, beets, turnips and sweet potatoes. We also provide a selection of winter squash and potatoes from partnering local farms. A Winter CSA share is a delicious way to celebrate the late season harvest and provide a bountiful Thanksgiving feast! Winter CSA shares are distributed on three Saturday afternoons in November and December, listed below. Each winter share distribution averages about 35 pounds of produce and is much larger than a weekly summer share pickup. Coming prepared with lots of boxes, bags and extra time makes each pick up more enjoyable!
Saturday Pick-Up Dates (12:00 noon - 4:00pm): November 3, November 17, December 1
* Please make sure that you are able to pick up on the specified days before you sign up for a winter share!
If you should be unable to pick up at one of the specified days, please ask a friend, family member, neighbor or coworker to pick up your share.
Due to seasonal conditions and storage limitations, we are not able to accomodate requests to assemble and store your share.
Limited to 175, on a first-come, first-served basis. Both primary shareholders and split-share partners can purchase their own winter shares, but please make a note of which household is purchasing the winter share on the registration form.
There is no work requirement associated with our CSA program, although shareholders are certainly welcome to join us in the fields and office as a volunteer! Each year, our nonprofit organization grows 20% of our harvests for food assistance in Greater Boston and we provide hundreds of low-income community members hands-on educational opportunities in our Learning Garden. This charitable work depends on volunteer assistance from working in the fields, helping with office tasks, coordinating fundraisers, and serving on WFCF's Board of Directors. You can also organize a volunteer visit from your workplace, school or community group to the farm. More information on volunteering with us is available in the Get Involved section of the site.
