What's in a Winter Share?
A winter share is a wide variety of storage vegetables as well as fresh greens from our greenhouses. Some items are best used within the week after pickup, and other items will store well.
Each delivery will include 8-10 varieties of produce. The total quantity per pick-up is larger than our regular season share, smaller than our big Thanksgiving share. 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.
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 Apple share consists of a variety of apples, mostly from our neighbors at Fix Brothers Farm, Mead Orchard, and Samascott Orchard. About 3 lb. per pickup. The fruit is not organic. One delivery may be cider instead of apples.
