This year, we are having an early sign-up for Winter Sun Farms. If you had a share last year, you know what it entails: 5 deliveries over the winter, each with 7 different items, mostly frozen, some fresh. They collect freshly-picked, organic produce from local farms during the summer season and freeze it for winter use, resulting in some pretty healthy veggies that taste much better than the frozen food you’re used to seeing at the supermarket. Depending on the harvest, the frozen vegetables and fruits may include broccoli, sweet corn, mixed peppers, green beans, pureed butternut squash, kale, blueberries, raspberries, and edamame!
Even better, the farmers have managed to LOWER their prices from last year due to more efficient techniques; rather than make a larger profit, they’ve passed the savings on to us (hey Whole Foods, take note!)
This year’s Winter Sun Farms share will cost $137 (which includes a $5 admin fee.)
If enough people sign up, this price will go down even more, so don’t delay- we need to get enough orders in the next few weeks to qualify for this deal.
If you want a share, please fill out our simple, on-line contract. You can pay via check or PayPal, online or in person, but we can’t give you a share until we have the payment in hand. If the web is not your thing, we will have in-person signups during our regular Thursday night pickup on June 21st. Bring your checkbook!
If you’re not sure about securing a share this early in the year, there may still be a chance to sign up next winter, but Winter Sun Farms does have a limited space, so once they fill up, that’s it…. and we only qualify for the lower price if we get enough folks now, so try not to put it off. It really is a great deal!
