What's in a Winter Share?
A winter share is a wide variety of storage vegetables as well as fresh greens from our greenhouses. Because the delivery is monthly, we will be giving a generous share of 8-10 items. Some items are best used within the week after pickup, and other items will store well.
The share will likely include:
Best used fresh: Spinach, Braising Greens (kale, collards), Salad greens
Stores well in the fridge: Carrots, Parsnips, Beets, Turnips, Cabbage
Stores well at room temperature: Butternut Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Onions
Most of the items in the share will be from our own fields and greenhouses here at Hearty Roots. A few items may be sourced from nearby certified organic or certified naturally grown farms run by friends who we know and trust, including Poughkeepsie Farm Project and MX Morningstar Farm.
You can also add eggs on to your share!
These eggs are from our pasture-raised hens. In the summer they are out on the pasture in mobile hen houses, moved weekly to fresh grass. In the winter they move to one of our greenhouses for shelter from the snow, but they still have open access to the large outdoor area surrounding the greenhouse all day long.
The super-fresh eggs will last perfectly in your fridge for several weeks, so don't hesitate to order enough to last you for the month.
Pick-up is at the farm, 1822 Route 9, Germantown, NY.
Pick-up is the fourth Saturday of each month, January - April:
Hours are 10am - 4pm.
If you miss the sign-up window for January you can still join beginning in February at a pro-rated price.
If you can't make it to pick-up on one of those dates, we can hold your share at the farm for you to pick up during the following week.
