Community Supporter Share
Become a premium Full Plate member! One annual payment supports our farmers year round and helps feed your neighbors! $1200 covers both your summer and winter shares (choose any pick-up or delivery option), a bonus spring box of veggies, a tax deductible donation of $100 to Healthy Food for All, and helps support our farmers.
To reserve your spot we must receive your check or a payment through Paypal. Healthy Food for All members may also pay via EBT at Greenstar (note: you must share a receipt from Greenstar for EBT).
Checks are our preferred method of payment because the credit card fees could be going directly to our farmers! If you are able to, please consider paying by check rather than credit card.
What's in a Winter Share?
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.
Vacation and "Life Happens" Policy
Please send Molly 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."
