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 8-9 varieties of produce. The total quantity per pick-up is larger than our regular season share, though smaller than our big Thanksgiving share. Over the course of the season, the share contents will vary, and you may see more storage crops in mid-winter, and then start seeing more greens as we get closer to spring. Items you will likely see in your shares include:
Best used fresh:
Spinach, Cooking Greens (kale, collards, asian greens), Salad Greens (lettuce mix, arugula, pea shoots)
Stores well in the fridge: Carrots, 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 we know and trust.

An optional add-on of one dozen eggs per pick-up. These eggs are from our own 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.
An optional add-on of approximately 3 lb. of apples per pick-up. The Apple Share consists of a variety of apples, mostly from our neighbors at Fix Brothers Farm, Mead Orchard, and Samascott Orchard. The fruit is not organic, but is grown by farmers we know and trust. One delivery may be cider instead of apples.
Cheese Share (New this year!)
We are offering a new add-on share this year — cheese! The Winter Cheese Share consists of one type of locally produced artisanal or farmstead cheese per pick-up. The specific cheeses you receive will be sourced and selected by us — Farmer's choice! (No substitutions.) The share will include a mix of textures, flavors, and types, including cow's milk, goat's milk, and mixed-milk cheeses. All cheeses will come from local creameries and cheesemakers with commitments to quality, sustainability, and the well-being of their animals.
Pick-ups are available at the following locations:
Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church
6753 4th Avenue, Brooklyn NY
Red Shed Community Garden*
266 Skillman Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
*Location may change, but will be close by if so.
555 7th Avenue @ 19th St., Brooklyn, NY
This year's Winter Share pick-ups will take place on 8 Saturdays between December and April (bi-weekly, with changes around the holidays):
Please remember that winter weather can be unpredictable! We will do our best to stick to this schedule, but if there is a major storm event and we decide it is not safe to deliver your CSA, we will be sure to notify you and reschedule that share to another day. We will not offer refunds for rescheduled shares.
Take a "Vacation Week"
Winter Share members have the option to schedule up to two "vacation weeks" during the winter season. When you claim a vacation week, your pick-up for that week will be cancelled and you will receive a credit in your GrownBy account for the value of your skipped share (veggies and/or eggs), which will be automatically applied to your next CSA installment payment or CSA purchase.
You must process your vacation week claim at least 3 days before your scheduled pick-up so that we can adjust the week's harvest plan (i.e. by Wednesday night at 11:59pm). Detailed instructions on how to request your vacation week are available on our FAQ page.

Pay in Monthly Installments
A non-refundable deposit is due on sign-up. The remaining monthly payments will be processed on the first of each month during the season (December–April). A small $0.30 fee is added to each installment payment by the credit card processor.
Vegetable shares: $60 deposit | 5 monthly installments of $60
Egg shares: $8.50 deposit | 5 monthly installments of $9.50
Apple shares: $8.50 deposit | 5 monthly installments of $9.50

Members who sign up with monthly payments after the season starts will have a different payment schedule, depending on the total price of their prorated share. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
If you paid in full, you can cancel your share at any time with a week's notice. You can choose to have a credit issued for a future CSA purchase; or receive a refund for the value of the shares remaining in the season less 5% for processing fees.
If you pay with installments, you can cancel your payment plan at any time. The installment payments already made are non-refundable, and your cancellation will take effect at the beginning of the next month.

Here's how you sign up!
You can sign up for your share here! We use GrownBy software for our CSA member management. We love GrownBy for two reasons: it gives you lots of options for reviewing and managing your own share details; and it is software designed by a farmer-owned cooperative that was founded by Hearty Roots’ own Lindsey Lusher Shute! It works great as an app from the Apple or Android app stores, or can be used in a web browser.
If you purchased a share from us last season, you will already have an account set up. If you are a new member (welcome!), you will need to create an account as part of your purchase. Once you are logged in, you will be able to make all of your selections before checkout. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact us at email@example.com.
We look forward to providing you and your family with our fresh, delicious produce this winter!
Sign-ups for our Thanksgiving Shares are also now open!
