Powisset CSA: Week 19

It is week 19 of the Summer CSA. That means next week will be the last week to venture to the farm to pick-up your veggies. Unless, of course, you participate in our Winter CSA program!


As we are progress into fall it is time to start offering winter shares. This years share will include potatoes, winter squash, onions, scallions, kale, broccoli, lettuce, radicchio, spinach, radishes, garlic, mustard greens, cabbage, collards, carrots, beets, etc.

We have reduced the cost of the winter share this year to $200. The share will be smaller than last years share. This is a change that I planned before the drought as it seemed that some folks were overwhelmed by the amount of vegetables they received last year. I am hoping the smaller size and reduction in price will make the winter share feel more accessible to you.

Sign-ups for the share are being done the old fashioned way for the winter share. Sign-ups will not be offered online. If you would like to secure your share please bring cash or a check to the farm stand during regular distribution hours. Unfortunately, we are unable to process credit card or debit payments for winter shares. A deposit of $100 is needed to secure your spot. Full payment is due by the first pick up.

There will be 4 winter share distributions:

Pick up #1: November 4th + 5th
Pick up #2: November 18th +19
Pick up #3: December 2nd+3rd
Pick up #4: December 16th +17th
Like with summer share pick ups you may choose which day in the pick up block you would like to get your share. Also like the summer share, all pick ups are done market style (you get to pick out  your own vegetables) on the farm.

End of Season Community Potluck!

Please join us this Saturday evening for our end of season potluck. Bring a dish to share with Powisset farm staff as well as you fellow CSA community members. We will gather in the farm kitchen starting at 6 - 8. In order to keep clean up stream lined please bring your own plates , cups, and utensils for the meal. I hope this evening offers the opportunity for everyone to spend time and celebrate the awesome Powisset community.

In the share this week:

This week is all about the greens. We have been pretty heavy on the roots the last few weeks to this week we will be offering a number of different greens including kale, cooking greens, mustard greens, lettuce mix, as well as winter squash.

Pick your own has wrapped up for the season. We need to get the cover crop seed sown before it is too late in the season for them to get established and protect our soils from erosion over the winter.
