Fresh, local food all winter!
A popular question for farmers is "what do you do in the winter?"
farm requires tons of off season work, we have been experimenting for years with growing vegetables in the greenhouse through the winter with great success. We have found the best way to offer these
products is through a Winter CSA. Last year we had 40 members and this year we feel comfortable expanding it to 50 members.
What we grow in
Cage Free Eggs, Hydroponic Lettuce, Kales, Swiss Chard, Mixed Salad Greens, Mustard Greens, Pac Choi (Bok Choy), Beets, Arugula, Radishes, Spinach, Salad Turnips, Fresh Herbs, and
What we will
have from storage:
The Winter CSA lasts for 10 weeks and costs $200. Being a member gives you
a fortnightly (one pick-up every two weeks) supply of Greens, Storage Vegetables, Cage Free Eggs, and Gresczyk Canned Tomato Products through the Winter and Early Spring. Membership is
limited to only 50 members and sign up is on a first come first serve basis.
Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Winter Squash, Carrots, Parsnips, Popcorn, Purple Top Turnips, Brussels Sprouts, and Beets.
Additional food included:
Gresczyk Farm Canned Tomato Products
The Winter CSA pick-up is on Fridays from 11:00am-5pm.
The pick-up dates for the season are as follows:
2015: December 9, December 23
2016: January 6, January 20, February 3, February 17, March 3, March 17, March 31, and April 14.
How the Winter CSA works
Trading: We allow you to trade Items in the CSA for other Gresczyk Grown items of equal value. Please note that the items to trade for are limited in the winter.
Missed Pick up days: A skipped pick-up day without prior notification is forfeited. If you are unable to reach the farm on the day of your pick-up we are happy to reschedule your pick-up if
you give us 24 hour prior notice.
Snow Days: It being winter, snow is most likely inescapable. Our policy will be that if New Hartford Schools are canceled so will be that day's pick up. Pick up will then be rescheduled for
the next day schools are in session. You will also be notified via email.
Value: You will receive a minimum of $20 a week of our products. Along with a handout containing recipes and information about the vegetables.
How to Sign up: Bringing this handout to the farm store is the best way to sign up. You can also email Brucejr@gresczykfarms.com or call (860)482-3925 in order to have us hold you a
spot. ACT QUICKLY WE TYPICALLY SELL OUT QUICKLY.
Payment: We would prefer if you wait to the first pick-up day to make payment. Full Payment is requested on the first pick-up day (December 9). If you need to make other arrangements, we
are always happy to make them for you!
Contact: You will receive an email the night before every pick up day. The email serves as a reminder to pick up and will let you know what to expect in that week's share.
