Cold weather doesn't stop the growing here at Rocky Glade Farm. Beginning in November of each year we begin harvesting fall vegetables out of our hoop-houses in order to fill half-bushel boxes for our CSA subscribers.
We are now taking reservations for Winter CSA 2012-2013. If you would like to sign up, simply review the following information and then give us an email or call. If you have questions, feel free to contact us.
Rocky Glade Farm Winter CSA Information Sheet
Rocky Glade Farm is happy to offer a Winter CSA for the seventh year in a row! CSA is short for Community Supported Agriculture, also known as subscription farming. As a part of our Winter CSA you will be subscribing for pickup of fresh veggies every other week for 14 weeks, beginning in October and ending in early May. (Please note: you are paying for 14 boxes of produce, you will see 15 weeks listed below, we reserve the right to cancel one of those pickups during the winter growing season due to weather)
So what do we grow? We try to balance our growing between greens and root crops. Within each category we will probably grow several different varieties, butterhead lettuce, crisp lettuces, romaine lettuces, several types of radishes, dinosaur kale, red Russian kale etc. What follows is a list of main crops you can expect to find in your box: Several heads of Lettuce, Radishes, Onions, Beets, Swiss Chard, Kale, Herbs, Parsley, Cilantro, Broccoli/Kale crosses such as Happy Rich, Carrots, Asian Greens, Mustard Greens, Sweet Turnips and Turnip Greens, Collard Greens, Cabbages, Spinach, Lettuce mix. In addition, you may start and end your box with other seasonal vegetables such as winter squash, and sweet potatoes and wind up the season with spring crops like broccoli and strawberries…no promises on those items as they totally depend on weather and supply, but we try to do what we can to make sure you have a good variety of veggies throughout the winter months.
Our pricing for 2012-2013 stays the same as last season. Pricing will be $30.00 per pickup which translates into $420.00 for the entire 7 month harvest season. There are two ways to pay: 1) pay in full at the beginning of the season $420.00 (October 1st) or 2) two payments of 210.00 (Due dates October 1, February 1)
A deposit of 210.00 is required by October 1st to reserve your spot in the Winter CSA.
