2016-2017 WINTER SHARES
The details of our winter share are being finalized! Golden Earthworm Organic Farm needs to hear from our group so they can figure out how many shares to allocate per group in Queens and on Long Island. Please email Tiloma (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to participate in our winter share by October 15th.
*** Please note that the vegetable share box is significantly smaller this year (with a lower price reflected). Feedback from winter share members in years past indicated that the poundage was way too much to consume. We got the message and we’ve lightened it up! *** Anyone who would like more quantity should order multiple shares.
WINTER ORGANIC VEGETABLE : $80
This is a 4 week membership share. Produce is from the Golden Earthworm fields, boxed up, and delivered to Alewife. Each box would contain approximately 10lbs of mixed root crops and greens. Winter shares from past years have included: Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Beets, Potatoes, Rutabaga, Kohlrabi, Watermelon Radish, Kale, Spinach & Arugula. You must have a vegetable share to qualify for add-on shares.
Add-On WINTER APPLE CIDER: $18
1/2 gallon jug x 4 deliveries. This is a non-organic apple cider share provided by Briermere Farms in Riverhead, NY. While the cider is not organic, the farm however, uses its own leaf compost to eliminate the need for chemical fertilizer and implements integrated pest management to reduce the need for insecticides. Herbicides have not been used in many years. You can read more about the farm’s growing practices here.
Add-On WINTER APPLE SHARE: $26
4lb bag x 4 deliveries. These are non-organic apples provided by Briermere Farms as well.
