Winter CSAs:

Blue Heron Farm offers vegetables weekly at the Ithaca Farmers Market.

Early Morning Farm offers two deliveries of full bushels of veggies.

Plowbreak Farm offers two winter pick-ups.

The Full Plate Farm Collective offers a produce share for the winter, too (aka a Winter CSA).  This winter’s share may include: winter squash, beets, high-tunnel salad greens, garlic, leeks, kale, collards, carrots, daikon radish, parsnips, turnips (purple top and hakurei), watermelon radishes, braising greens, spinach, cabbage, fennel, potatoes, kohlrabi, onions, and napa cabbage, sprouts, and lacto-fermemted pickles.
For 12 weeks beginning December 3rd and ending March 3rd (with a holiday break from 12/24-1/6), we’ll pack boxes of farmer-selected winter vegetables each week.  The Finger Lakes Fruit Bowl can be delivered alongside your vegetable share. All shares will be delivered or available for pick-up by midday on Thursdays. Sites are self serve. Members can pay in full or sign up for a monthly payment plan.($300 for Farm Pick-up, $315 for Group Delivery, $345 for Home/Office delivery within the City of Ithaca). Visit our website or call our CSA coordinator Sara at (607) 379 – 2866.
