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. 

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.

Egg Share

You can also add eggs 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.

Flexibility

Late Pick-up

If you can't make it to your pick-up during the scheduled Saturday hours, we can hold your share for you in our Farm Market. You can stop by during the market's regular open hours (Saturday until 4pm; Sunday 10am – 4pm; Wednesday 11am – 6pm) and ask for your share at the register. Any shares not claimed by the end of the day Wednesday will be donated to a local community organization.

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.

Payment Options

 

Pay in Full

We appreciate your full payment to help the farm cover all the costs of growing the vegetables at the beginning of the season!

 

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: $7.50 deposit | 5 monthly installments of $8.50 

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 csa@heartyroots.com if you have any questions. 

Cancellation Policy

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 or Farm Market 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.
