The Fall and Winter season is a time of beauty, abundance, and gathering in both the field and at the table. We are offering this combo package for those of you who want to take full advantage of the bounty! This share includes 12 weeks of vegetables, greens, herbs, and farm fresh eggs (eggs come every other week for our small share) as well as 8 weeks of freshly harvested and arranged flowers. This package usually feeds 1-2 people. We offer both delivery and pickup options.
What to Expect :
Our deluxe Fall/Winter CSA and flower share program is expected to start the week of 9/20/2021. Veggies will run for 12 weeks and wrap up the week of 12/6/2021. The flower portion of this share runs for 8 weeks and will end the first week of November.
CSA/Veggie Info: During the Fall season, we are typically harvesting a variety of radishes, swiss chard, arugula, baby salad mixes, head lettuce, kale, peppers, herbs, winter squash and sweet potatoes. As the season progresses and the temperature cools, we begin harvesting additional crops such as turnips, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, beets, brussels sprouts and carrots. We also include a variety of herbs throughout the fall/winter season such as dill, parsley, cilantro, fennel and chives.
Flower Subscription Info: As our subscriptions begin, we are normally riding out the warmer weather on a wave of zinnias, sunflowers, celosias, amaranth plumes, hibiscus foliage, giant marigolds, and airy cosmos. As we progress into the fall, arrangements will begin to incorporate moodier sunflowers, millet varieties, roselle buds, mexican sunflowers, snapdragons and eucalyptus varieties. Later, we begin to gather unique forage and dried elements like seed pods, berries, and decorative grasses to enhance our arrangements with elements and textures of autumn. Our flower subscription services end before Thanksgiving holiday and our subscribers will have first dibs on our Fall and Winter holiday packages!
