Winter 2019-2020 CSA

The Winter 2019-2020 CSA is now sold out.

Stay tuned for our Summer 2020 CSA!

 

Fresh, local food all winter!

 

A common question for farmers is “What do you do in the winter?” While the farm requires tons of off season work, we also grow vegetables in our wood-heated greenhouse through the winter with great success. We enjoy offering these products to you through a Winter CSA.
 
We allow 65 members in our winter program. Our Winter CSA is very popular and sign up is first come first serve. First pick-up date is December 6.
 
Being a Winter CSA member gives you a  source of Fresh Greens, Storage Vegetables, Cage Free Eggs, Gresczyk Farms Pork Products, and Gresczyk Canned Tomato Products from Early December through early spring (mid-April).
 
What's in the Winter CSA?
 
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 is in our storage/fields:

Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Winter Squash, Garlic, Onions, Carrots, Parsnips, Popcorn, Purple Top Turnips, Brussel Sprouts, and Beets

 

Our Winter CSA is a wonderful way to continue to eat locally grown food throughout the entire winter! There is something very special about eating freshly harvested vegetables when it is snowing and icy cold out.

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. All trades must be completed on your pickup day. Trading is limited to two Items per pick up. 

 

Missed Pick up days: A skipped pick up day without prior notification is forfeited. The cutoff time for notification is 7am the day of your pick up. If you are unable to reach the farm for your days pick up we are happy to reschedule your pick up to any other day(or week) we are open. Please note in January, February, and March we will only be open on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays. 

 

Snow Days: It being winter, inclement weather is most likely inescapable. If you ever feel uncomfortable driving due to poor road conditions please let us know and we will happily make arrangements for you to come on another day. In the case of a major snow event we will either delay the start of pick up or postpone it until road conditions are safe.

 

Value: You will receive a minimum of $20 value per pickup of our products. Plus you will receive a handout containing recipes and information about the vegetables/products. 

 

How to Sign up: We are sold out for this year.

 

Payment: We would prefer if you wait until the first pick up day to make payment. Full payment is requested on or by the first pick up day.  If you need to make other arrangements, we are always happy to make them for you! Contact brucejr@gresczykfarms.com.

 

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. Please use brucejr@gresczykfarms.com as our preferred method of contact.  If you ever do not receive the weekly email (they usually go out by 6pm the day before pickup) please email Bruce Jr to help fix the problem.
