Winter Shares, Week 5 (3/13/14)

Happy March Everyone! This will be the final Winter Share delivery. What next?! Sign up for the Summer/Autumn 2014 season! Right now, you can sign up for vegetable and fruit shares, and very soon, you will be able to sign up for special product shares.


Winter Vegetable Shares, 2013-14 Season

Sign-ups are now CLOSED for Winter 2013-14 Vegetable Shares

There are two kinds of Winter Vegetable Shares: 1. Golden Earthworm’s root vegetable share, and 2. Winter Sun Farms‘ frozen local vegetable share. The two shares complement each other well, so feel free to sign-up for both! In addition to veggies, you can also purchase a Cider Share and/or an Apple Share from Briermere Farms. We will continue to offer fish shares and CSA extras through the winter (details on those coming soon).

How to sign-up for Winter Vegetable Shares:

Online Sign-Up: The easiest way to sign-up for a Winter Share is via the web form link below and pay with PayPal. You can also sign up via web form then pay by sending a check to our P.O. box.


In-Person Sign-Up: There will be ONE in-person sign-up on November 7th, from 6-7pm, during regular CSA pickup. If you plan to sign up in-person, please know the details of the shares you are purchasing and *bring your checkbook.*

If you want a winter share, but can’t sign up online and can’t attend our in-person sign-up, please Contact Us ASAP to make other arrangements.

Note: All payments must be received by Monday, November 18th

Read carefully: VOLUNTEERING
Everyone is required to sign-up for a volunteer shift. We’ve amended the Volunteer Agreement in hopes of curtailing ‘no-show’ volunteer incidents. Please read it carefully before signing off. For most folks, nothing will change, other than we need all Winter Share participants to have signed up for a shift by January 15th, 2014 (by then, 2 of the 5 deliveries will have already passed, so that gives you plenty of time!) Questions? Please Contact Us.
