What's in a Winter Share?
A winter share is a wide variety of storage vegetables as well as fresh greens from our greenhouses. Pick-up is eight Saturdays between December and April (more or less bi-weekly, with changes around holidays). Some items are best used within the week after pickup, and other items will store well.
Each delivery will include 10-12 varieties of produce. Over the course of the season, the shares will likely include:
Best used fresh: Spinach, Cooking Greens (kale, collards, asian greens), Salad greens (lettuce mix, arugula, pea shoots)
Stores well in the fridge: Carrots, Parsnips, Beets, Turnips, Green, Red and Napa Cabbage, Winter Radishes
Stores well at room temperature: Winter Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Onions, Potatoes, Garlic
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.
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.
Pick-up is at the farm, 1822 Route 9, Germantown, NY.
Pick-up is on the following Saturdays, between 10am - 1pm:
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.
