What is the Winter Share?

2018- 2019 Winter Shares are now for sale! 

There are still shares available

 If you would like to purchase a share for a 2018-2019 Winter Share you can do so at the bottom of this page. 

We have a few options this year, one is a pickup at the farm. This will be the 11th year of opening up our barn every other week in the winter, and distributing greenhouse greens and root crops around a wood stove with live music. I love the winter distribution, it gets us through the winter! 

We also are offering a 'sampler box' which will be delivered to a few drop off points including Atlas Bowl in Trumansburg, in the rear vestibule of Mimi's Attic, (Seneca St. entrance) in downtown Ithaca, The Piggery on Franklin Street off Meadow Street, and a drop off at Manhattan Country School in New York City. For those of you who would enjoy a smaller share of basic winter produce this is a great option. 

 

Here is a list vegetables you can expect in a Winter Share:
 

- Carrots, Leeks, Onions, Garlic, Butternut Squash, Acorn Squash, Red and Gold Potatoes, Spinach, Green Kale, Lacinato Kale, Parsley, Cabbage, Napa cabbage, Watermelon radishes, Beets, Hakurei Turnips, Celeriac, Purple Daikon, Kohlrabi, and a few others.

 

"The Sweet Land Winter Sampler is like getting a box of summer in the middle of winter. There's nothing better than seeing that beautiful green kale on a snowy white day, and bringing heat into the kitchen with perfectly cured garlic and pungent onions. Getting that fresh food is the highlight of my week: it tastes SO MUCH BETTER than store-bought vegetables. And the Sampler is the perfect size for our family."   -CSA CUSTOMER REVIEW-

 

We really do enjoy getting to run a Winter CSA. It is very fulfilling to supply you with food through the year, and it helps provide some winter work for our employees. Thank you so much for making this farm REAL! We are deeply grateful to you.  We enjoy staying connected to the members through the winter and are happy to provide a source of healthy, local sustenance in the off-season. Winter shares may be purchased anytime until sold out.
