Winter CSA options

There is a CSA with Winter Sun Farms, which provides mainly frozen produce from Hudson Valley farms. Also new this year, Garden of Eve farm, the farm that serves KWT's spring-fall CSA, is doing a Winter CSA in Kensington/Windsor Terrace for the first time. Please visit the web sites listed below to get details about these two options, as their offerings are very different. Note that the sign up for each of these options is handled directly through the farm, rather than through the KWT CSA google group - see the links below.

Winter shares consist of a pre-boxed, once-a-month pickup from December through May of approximately 15-20 lbs of our own organic vegetables, and 2-3 dozen of our pastured organic eggs.

Winter Share prices for 2010-11 will be $280 (for 6 months),
