Winter Share 2024: Week 9

February 28 - March 2

Follow Us on Facebook or Instagram


Hi Folks,

The Online Market is going at full steam! We hope you've all had a chance to take a look. We have most of our usual things available to add to your order. You'll see a few new items this week, including flash frozen Broccoli grown conventionally in Maine. It comes in a two pound bag - more than double the size of most bags of frozen broccoli.

We'd like to thank you again for your flexibility. This week we will be picking some great greens from the high tunnel for your White Barn Farm Winter Mix.


Reminder of our pick up procedure:

- 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 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.

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


The Online Market is open now for you to make any purchases. It is still a work in progress so you may see new things pop up each time you log on.


Deadline this Week!

These are the last days to purchase the Full Year Farm Share Bundle. This discounted offer is only available through the end of this month, February 29.


Also, due to changes in Square's system, we've had to move up the deadline for a bonus 5% on Farmstand Cards to February 29. Topoff your card, or buy a new one, for the season here.




In this Week's Share:

All items are organically grown or certified organic unless otherwise noted.

1 bag of White Barn Farm Winter Mix

(Baby Kale, Lettuce, Spinach, Mache)

1 bag of Parsnips

1 Celery Root

1 bag of Turnips

1 bag of local Apples, conventionally grown

Provision: Box of Sfoglini Pasta! Several varieties available.


Quantities are larger in than in previous weeks. Here are some 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.

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.
