Spring Share, What’s It All About?

 

I love to eat greens but, I don’t know any farmer who is crazy about picking them. It’s a labor intensive endeavor that forces you to be in the moment and when you are starting up the farm for a new season it’s pretty much impossible to slow your mind down long enough to pick greens. Soooo….the Spring U-Pick Share was born with that in mind.

For our CSA members, we wanted them to have really fresh greens whenever they wanted them and we didn’t want them to necessarily make a special trip on certain day, at a certain time to do that. That would defeat the purpose and make it inconvenient. So we decided we would make the Spring Share a pick-your-own share. So whenever a CSA member is coming by the farm they can stop in and pick as many greens as their family needs (sorry no sharing on this one). People love it! It’s fresh and it’s convenient and a little Zen-like for those of you who don’t do this everyday.

A few of the greens in the share you may have never seen before like tatsoi, Haukeri turnips, pea shoots but, you’ll also see lettuce, arugula and spinach. The essence of the the CSA experience is all about eating with the seasons and Spring is all about greens. This share will get you out of your eating rut and expand your palette. There will be a few things that you’ll be seeing for the first time. Just embrace them, because you may just find your new favorite.
