What to expect in your share -
Produce Share: Spring - At the start, your share will include winter storage root crops, local provisions, local apples, White Barn Farm greenhouse grown spinach, local organic dried cranberries, and micro greens. By mid-April, we will begin to harvest the first crops of the new year out of the field: tender salad greens, cooking greens, lettuce, bok choy, Napa cabbage, radishes, salad turnips, and sugarsnap peas, beets, scallions and fresh herbs, depending on what is ready that week.
Summer - The summer share may contain tender salad greens, cooking greens, bok choy, Napa cabbage, cilantro, radishes, salad turnips, lettuce, and sugarsnap peas like the spring share at first. Then tender bunching roots will start making the scene - carrots and beets. Then more substantial brassicas like cabbage and kohlrabi. Then the fruiting crops will join the mix - cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, and more! New potatoes come in around mid-July. Head lettuces, fennel, radicchio, and summer salad mixes will be represented. There will usually be something from the onion family - scallions, fresh onions, shallots, onions, or garlic. And we try to include a fresh herb each week, too - usually parsley, cilantro, dill, basil, thyme, rosemary, or sage.
Fall - Your weekly share will include fresh picked cooking greens, radishes, and salad greens and a variety of storage crops, including onions, potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, beets, winter squash and more. During the months of October and November, expect it to be heavier on the fresh picked crops and during the month December, it will be heavier on the storage crops.
Winter - Your weekly share will include fresh picked greens from the greenhouse and a variety of storage crops, including radicchio, cabbage, onions, potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, beets, celery root, parsnips, rutabaga, winter squash and more.
