Do you miss the fresh local produce once farmer’s markets close? Would you like to enjoy fresh local food throughout the winter right here in Kansas City?
We are excited to offer a Winter CSA option this year! It will go every other week starting just before Thanksgiving and going into the beginning of April (with approximately a month off in January.
We’ll supply 7 items every week. We are planting now in the fields and greenhouses to supply a wide selection throughout the season of cold-hardy and some storage crops. Here’s what we anticipate being included in the shares at different times throughout the season: lettuce, spinach, kale, carrots, radish, arugula, salad turnips, parsley, cilantro, collard greens, swiss chard, stir-fry mix, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, garlic, watermelon radish, beets, green onion, bok choy, and claytonia.
You’ll receive a total of 7 items per week. We’ll try to offer choices between a few items whenever possible, but given the challenge of winter production, the boxes will be mostly determined by the winter growing conditions.
The Winter CSA will consist of 9 pickups at the farm in Independence, MO on the following Mondays: Nov 20, Dec 4, Dec 18, Jan 29, Feb 12, Feb 26, Mar 12, Mar 26, and Apr 9. Pickup time will be 3pm to 6pm.
This is your chance to eat fresh even in winter! There is no work requirement associated with the winter CSA. Just come on out to the farm and enjoy the magic of winter growing!
