Winter CSA

Cold weather doesn't stop the growing here at Rocky Glade Farm. Beginning in October of each year we begin harvesting fall vegetables out of our hoop-houses in order to fill half-bushel to bushel boxes for our CSA subscribers.

Rocky Glade Farm is happy to offer a Winter CSA for the 13th year in a row! CSA is short for Community Supported Agriculture, also known as subscription farming. As a part of our Winter CSA you will be subscribing for pickup of fresh veggies every other week. Changing things up a bit this year and offering our CSA for two different time periods:
#1 Fall Only‚Ä"Just want to get started‚Ķyou get 6 boxes of fresh produce from October through the middle of December. OR Of course if you sign up for fall and decide you want to continue through 2018 we'll be happy to accommodateÔĀä
#2 Full Season‚Ä"Die Hard and we love you for it! You are signing up for 15 pickups of fresh produce from October through middle of May.
THE WHERE:
Two pickup locations…On the Farm here in Eagleville on Tuesday afternoons 3-6 pm and Saturday mornings at the Franklin Farmers Market at the Factory (hours vary between 8-1 and 9-12 over the entire season…I'll keep you informed!)

THE CALENDAR:
Fall Only starts October 3/7 and ends December 12/16.
Full Season Starts October 3/7 and ends May 8/12. There is a three week break between your last pickup of 2017 on December 12/16 and your first pickup of 2018 on January 2/6 (trying to miss Christmas and New Year's). In addition to that there is also an extra week built into the season that we can choose to DROP due to weather or other conditions (we will notify you in advance of the drop week, promise!)

THE DOLLARS:
Fall Only: 6 weeks at 35.00 per week gives you a total of 210.00 for the entire fall season. Payable in full by September 15.
Full Season: 15 weeks at 35.00 per week is a total of 525.00 for the entire 7 months. Payable either in full or 262.50 by September 15 and balance of 262.50 by February 1.

Now that all the numbers are up, what do we grow? We try to balance our growing between greens and root crops. Variety is our goal! Usually your fall boxes contain winter squash, sweet potatoes, potatoes, garlic and a variety of fall greens, plus peppers and fresh ginger! Moving into late fall you can expect broccoli and other brassica type veggies in addition to more winter squash and sweet potatoes. January and February are our most challenging growing months, however they can be some of the best eating as the greens are super sweet and welcome to our dead of winter diet. I love our winter lettuces and greens for soups! Early spring brings an abundance of lettuces and salad items like radishes, onions and other fresh ingredients. It also sometimes brings carrots, beets and other long crops that find that extra sunshine of March needed for maturing. Late spring is usually our customer's favorite…last season the early spring weather brought strawberries to our CSA boxes from April all the way through the end of May!

Some things are staples for us, like a wide variety of lettuces, kale, Swiss chard, spinach, sweet potatoes, winter squash and garlic. You won't necessarily get those items every time, but you will see them more often than other veggies. We do strive for a variety of things all the while keeping it stable so you know what to expect and don't have to learn a new way of cooking with each box. We guarantee you to have your money's worth in each box. In general your produce will fill a bushel size box at each pickup. Most of the time, you get more than you've paid for…but then that's the benefit of being in a CSA! You are our number 1's! We take care of YOU!
