In the left hand column are links to our vegetable pages that include pictures, descriptions and links to recipes. Not all the crops we grow will have their own page since most people don't need help with what to do with certain items like watermelon. This information is written by Sara so it is slanted by her preferences even though she tried to be impartial. It is not meant to be an exhaustive resource but a place to start from. There is so much information on the web it can be overwhelming. Nutritional information is not mentioned at all since in our opinion eating a wide range of all vegetables is the best bet. If you want more specific nutritional information try the USDA website.
What vegetables do we offer?
This is the question we get asked most often.
We try to offer as diverse a selection as our climate will allow. We do not offer orchard fruit since that is a different type of farming.
In Summer/Fall we offer 38 different crops, many of which contain several varieties. These crops are grown in our fields as well as our passive solar greenhouse.
In the Winter/Spring we offer 20 different crops, many of which contain several varieties. We have root crops from storage as well as fresh greens grown in our passive solar greenhouse all winter long. You also get the first of the spring crops such as asparagus and the earliest strawberries.
Click here for a chart showing when the different crops are in season. Please note that just because the crop is listed as in season does not mean it will be available every week at distribution. The chart is meant to indicate when it is possible to harvest that crop based on our planting schedule in our climate. We make every effort to provide a wide selection at each distribution. Each week we aim to have about 8 different items to select from but depending on the time of year there may be more or less.
