Winter 2017-2018 CSA

Fresh, local food all winter!
 

A popular question for farmers is "what do you do in the winter?" While the 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. It is very popular, and we keep it capped at 50 members.
 

What we grow in the winter:
Cage Free Eggs, Hydroponic Lettuce, Kales, Swiss Chard, Mixed Salad Greens, Mustard Greens, Pac Choi (Bok Choy), Beets, Arugula, Radishes, Spinach, Salad Turnips, and Fresh Herbs.

 

What we will have from storage:
Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Winter Squash, Carrots, Parsnips, Popcorn, Purple Top Turnips, Brussel Sprouts, and Beets.

Additional food included:
Gresczyk Farm Canned Tomato Products


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.

The Winter CSA pick-up is on Fridays from 11:00am-5pm.

The pick-up dates for the season are as follows:

 

2017

December 8, December 22

 

2018

January 5, January 19, February 2, February 16, March 2, March 16, March 30, and April 13.



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: Fill out the linked form here (or the information below), and bring it to the farm store. This 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 FAST.

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 8).  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. Our email to you serves as a reminder to come pick up your veggies and lets you know what to expect in that week's share.
