CSA Option for the Winter Months

Optional Winter veggie share from Winter Sun Farms. Stoneledge sells extra veggies to Winter Sun Farms, who buy summer crops and flash freeze them for winter distribution. The veggies are not guaranteed organic (they buy from a mix of farms), but they are locally produced. At present, Carnegie Hill CSA does not plan to distribute WSF products this winter. However, if enough of our members show an interest, we may need to reconsider.

Deb sends the following message from Jim Hyland of WSF:

Hello Stoneledge CSA members,

As many of you know, we have been working with the Kavakos family over the years to buy their great produce and also help them create some wonderful value added products. This year Stoneledge Farms plum tomatoes will be featured in our jarred tomato puree, and we will freeze their winter greens as part of our winter share.

As always Winter Sun Farms will bring the best local Hudson Valley vegetables and berries to NYC this winter. The vegetables and berries are grown at local farms (like Stoneledge) and then frozen just after their harvest at our facility in Kingston, NY. Shares are then distributed once a month from December to April to your CSA. Each share contains seven items. Winter Sun Farms summer vegetables and berries will be a great blast of local flavor this winter.

Winter Sun Farms is excited about our upcoming winter season! We have dropped the 5 month share price to last years’ 4 month share price! The season is from December through April with monthly deliveries to your CSA. Sign up now and receive an extra $10 off the share price! Use the coupon code Stoneledge under the promotion code section when paying at our Farmigo site http://csa.farmigo.com/join/wintersunfarms/winter2012-2013

Our season kicks off in December when your share is projected to include Sweet Corn, Butternut Squash Puree, Green Beans, Peppers, Tomato, Blueberries, and Pea Shoots. New this year, our tomato puree will be in a glass jar which can be stored on a shelf.
Please visit our website for more information www.wintersunfarms.com or if you have any questions about the share, please contact leslie@wintersunfarms.com.

If your location doesn’t offer the WSF winter share please contact us, as we still have time to arrange a distribution to your CSA.

Thank you,
Jim Hyland
President, Winter Sun Farms
