We are excited to welcome you all to our second Winter CSA! To be honest, we started our first Winter CSA in 2020 out of desperation because of the pandemic. It was such a strange year for all of us and it was certainly not a “normal” year on the farm so we had to come up with an additional source of income for the year. It was sort of a last-minute decision to try it and we weren’t able to put that much planning into it, but it turned out to be a huge success! Our Winter CSA was 7 weeks long last year and ended in mid December. This year we intentionally planned to do it again and increased the length to 13 weeks and we plan to feed you all until the end of January!
We’ve planned a lot of crops for our Winter CSA and in the last month we’ve been building caterpillar tunnels. They’re like an unheated mini greenhouse. They help give the crops a little more heat and also protect them from our winter winds! We also tuck the crops under a kind of blanket inside the tunnels to give them an extra bit of protection. We’re looking forward to feeding you with all of these cold-weather crops we’ve grown with care!
