Our fall shares typically begin in October and run through early December. Unlike our main season CSA which picks up from the farm weekly, fall shares are picked up every other week for a total of five shares. These shares are considerably larger than our summer shares and are meant to fill your pantry storable items. All members get a "Best Storage Practices" sheet, as well as recipes and ideas for use.
Note: When putting together these shares, I am emphasizing staple foods like potatoes, carrots, beets, salad greens, winter squash, onions, garlic, etc. There will be mix-and-match options for many of the less common items so you're able to get a sampling of many things, without having to take home bulk amounts of everything. In sum, these shares are meant to give you variety while focusing on larger quantities of staple storage items.
In 2023, our fall shares will contain some combination of the following items: onions, garlic, potatoes, sunchokes, shallots, carrots (rainbow and orange), spinach, spring mix, Swiss chard, arugula, kale, mustard mix, radicchio, lettuce heads, microgreens, radishes (bunched, daikon, and watermelon), kohlrabi, cabbage, winter squash, celery, scallions, fennel, salad turnips, beets, bok choi, collards, scallions, fresh herbs, organic apples from Almar Orchard, and fresh, organic cranberries from Ruesch Family Farm.
WHAT: At each pickup, you will be taking home 10-13 items, but will be able to choose those items from nearly 20 different options. This allows you great variety, without having to take home items you don't like or can't eat. Each share is valued at $45. Midland home delivery and Bay City drop-offs will be available for the additional cost of $5 per delivered share.
WHEN: The fall CSA season begins in mid-October, ends early December, and runs every other week, for a total of 5 pickups. Farm pickups are on Tuesdays from 4-7PM and home deliveries run on Wednesdays from 2:30-6PM.
WHERE: The farm is located just 15 minutes north of Midland, off of US10W. Our address is 6099 N. Meridian Road (M30) in Hope, 48628.
