Winter CSA

Last winter we provided CSA members with 18 weeks of produce from January to April. It was exciting to see the crops growing under the protection of unheated greenhouses, tunnels and row covers. We are trying to revive the lost art of harvesting produce in the winter months. There is something satisfying about the quality of cold loving plants grown in the cold. They have a sturdy look about them. We were very pleased with the produce that we could provide last winter and we are looking forward to growing it again.

When does the season start? How long will it last?

For new customers who aren't currently part of our Fall CSA, the Winter begins the last week in October and continues to the end of January (a total of 14 weeks).

For those who are a part of our Fall CSA, we offer a 6 week extension. It begins December 23rd and also continues to the end of January.

Note: We have restructured our Winter season from past years. The Winter season will end the last week of January. There won't be any deliveries for the months of February and March. This will give us some much-needed time to prepare and plant for the new year.

What can I expect in each week's box?

As a member of Crawford Organics Winter CSA you will receive a weekly box with an assortment of in season fresh vegetables. Each box will contain an average of 8 items. The quantities are designed for 2-4 people, depending on menu preferences. The box may not supply all your vegetable needs, depending on your normal vegetable consumption.

In our farm share, approximately half or a little more of the items will be storage crops (potatoes, onions, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, winter squash, etc.). The balance of the box will consist of cold loving crops that can be grown and harvested in the winter (lettuce, kale, chard, scallions, radishes, spinach, cilantro, leeks, etc).

The following list gives you an idea of when our crops are harvested. Some of these items you will find in your box frequently and others only once or twice. Because we are working with living plants and the unpredictability of weather, there is no guarantee of the exact type or quantity of produce you will receive each week.

Harvest Expectations

Beets, Boc Choi, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Chard, Cilantro, Garlic, Assorted Herbs, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, Onions, Parsley, Popcorn, Potatoes, Radishes, Scallions, Shallots, Sweet Potatoes, Spinach, Turnips, Winter Squash

* Please also see our Winter CSA History page for a list of what we sent in last season's boxes.

What if I go on vacation?

If you plan to be away certain weeks in the winter, and you can let us know when you sign up; we will deduct $23/week you will be gone. If after you sign up, you realize you will be away some week; there will be no refunds, but you may either have a neighbor pick up your box for you, or you may pick up two boxes one week and skip the previous or subsequent week. To double a week and skip one, you must give us one week advance notice by either e-mail or phone.

We harvest an exact amount of produce for each week’s boxes. Therefore if you fail to pick your box up within the designated time without informing us in advance; we will donate it to a worthy recipient.
