Storage Tips

  • Greens: Store best in your refrigerator. Keep in the plastic bag they come in and keep it closed. If ever feeling overwhelmed by greens, pop a bag in your freezer! They can be used frozen in smoothies or into anything you are going to cook like soups or stews.

  • Onions: Store onions in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Maintain storage temperature of 45-55°F. Do not wrap onions in plastic or store in plastic bags. A lack of air circulation will reduce shelf life.

  • Potatoes: Should be stored in a cool, dark place with good ventilation. A temperature range of 45-50°F is ideal. Avoid storing them near onions, as both release gases that can accelerate spoilage.

  • Root Vegetables: Wrap unpeeled and unwashed in a dry paper towel, and store them in an airtight food storage container or bag. Store in the coolest part of your refrigerator.

  • Sweet Potatoes: These will keep well on your counter for at least a week. For longer term storage, keep your sweet potatoes in a paper bag or basket in a kitchen cabinet, pantry, or basement. Choose a cabinet that's not near the heat of your oven. A spot closer to the floor will be cooler. Sweet potatoes prefer a temperature between 50 and 60 degrees.

 

Pick up Procedures for the Winter Share


  • All operations will be conducted at the door of our retail greenhouse located at 431 South St, Wrentham, MA.

  • Farm Shares will be prepared ahead of time for CSA members. We will be packing with items we already have on hand. It may be a box, a paper bag or a plastic bag.

  • We are moving the bulk of our retail sales online.

  • Online orders can be scheduled for pick-up on Wednesdays (10am-5pm), Fridays (10am-5pm), and Saturdays (10am-2pm). Meaning you can pick up additional items at the same time you plan to pick up your Share.

  • Pre-ordering your items online will help to ensure a smooth and efficient experience, especially in case of inclement weather. Order Online.

  • Most items will be available for purchase on-site, including bread and frozen chicken and steak, on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Please see staff when you are picking up your share unless otherwise noted.

 

Pick up is Wednesday/Friday from 10 - 5 or Saturday 10 - 2

Thank you so much for support!
