Belmont Acres Farm is offering a fall CSA with a limited number of shares this season that will run from November 7th through December 12 (six weeks of pick ups). Many Fall CSAs are monthly pickups, but our pickup is weekly. This is to not burden you with an overly large share that may be difficult for you to store (so we will do it for you). We also hope to offer more greens in the beginning before the weather turns too cold. Weather patterns are volatile in late fall and big changes can happen over the course of a month, more frequent pickups will mediate risk of more weather sensitive crops.
We have planted kale, collards, leeks, cauliflower, kohlrabi, brussel sprouts, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lettuce, swiss chard, fennel, garlic, shallots, sage, rosemary, thyme, arugula, turnips, radishes, pumpkins, winters squashes, carrots, popcorn, celeriac and beets. Of course what we plant doesn’t always mean it will end up in the share. Farming is high in risk and this has been a tough year to farm. We expect to provide at least $30 of produce in each share. We also include 1/2 dozen eggs in the share each week. The price for the share is $235. Pickups are at Belmont Acres Farm on Saturdays from 12:30 to 3:30pm
We expect to source cranberries from Plymouth and have partnered with Bascolm Hollow Farm for pork and ground beef. These will be offered at additional cost. We are looking into several other locally sourced items and will keep members informed of other items we may be able to provide.
