2018-19 Winter CSA
The Full Plate Farm Collective offers a produce share for the winter, too (aka a Winter CSA). This winter's share will likely include: winter squash, beets, high-tunnel salad greens, garlic, leeks, kale, collards, carrots, daikon radish, turnips (purple top and hakurei), watermelon radishes, parsnips, celeriac, braising greens, spinach, cabbage, fennel, potatoes (regular and sweet), kohlrabi, onions, Brussels sprouts, napa cabbage, sprouts, and lacto-fermemted pickles.
For 12 weeks beginning November 29th and ending February 28th (with a holiday break from 12/24-1/7), we'll pack boxes of farmer-selected winter vegetables each week. The Finger Lakes Fruit Bowl can be delivered alongside your vegetable share. All shares will be delivered or available for pick-up by midday on Thursdays. Sites are self serve.

Vacation and "Life Happens" Policy
Please send Sara an email by Monday at 5pm of the week that you want to hold delivery. You may double up another week in the season. However, if you are going out of town please consider having a friend our house sitter pick up your share. It's a great way to introduce the CSA concept to a friend!
"In this winter of prolonged frost, I really enjoyed participating in your winter CSA as well as the fruitbowl CSA. I've long been a member of a summer CSA, but this was my first winter CSA. The surprise additions to the boxes were really fun and even the standard veggies were a great treat for our meals (tonight, we're having a carrot, parsnip and sweet potato sauté with spices and raisins). So, thanks for all of your efforts."
