Winter CSA
in the Hudson Valley

Winter CSA sign-ups are closed for the 2023-24 season.

But you can join our 2024 Main Season CSA, starting in June, here


  • The winter vegetable share includes a wide variety of our own certified organic produce including fresh greens from the greenhouses, roots, winter squash, and more!

  • Eggs are available as an optional add-on item.

  • Plus lots of additional items available at our farm market during pick-up!

  • Winter Share pick-ups take place on 8 Saturdays between December and April (biweekly, with changes around the holidays)


What's in a Winter Share?

A winter share includes 9-10 types of produce at each pick-up, and each box includes a 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.

To see some example shares from the 2022-23 season, check out our Winter CSA stories highlights on Instagram!  


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.

2023-24 Winter CSA Calendar updated_web.png

Village Grocery members: your shares will be available for pick-up starting at 5pm Friday on the weeks posted above. (You can pick up at Village Grocery either Friday evening or on Saturday, whichever you prefer.)

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 have a CSA distribution on one of these dates, we will be sure to notify you and reschedule that share to another day. We will not offer refunds for rescheduled shares.


Late Pick-up (Farm pick-up only)

If you can't make it to your pick-up at the farm during the regular Saturday hours, we can hold your share for you in our Farm Market. You can stop by during the market's open hours through the following Wednesday 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.

Want to change your pick-up location for a week?

No problem! You can reschedule your share to our other pick-up location in your GrownBy member account. Give us at least 3 days' notice and we'll send your share to whichever location works best for you.

Going out of town? 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.

NOTE: You must process your vacation week claims and rescheduling requests 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 cost of the share is then spread out across monthly payments that are processed on the first of each month during the season (December–April). 

  • Vegetable shares: $65 deposit + 5 monthly installments of $63 

  • Egg shares: $10 deposit + 5 monthly installments of $8.80


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 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 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.
