winter shares and winter eggs

We’re coming up on the end of our weekly vegetable deliveries for the regular season.

John has loads of great vegetables still in the fields and is, once
again, offering a three-week WINTER SHARE.  The cost will be $80 and
the sign up form is posted in the files section of the Google group website.  The first 2
deliveries will be fairly typical to the regular season deliveries,
with lettuce, greens, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels
sprouts, root veggies such as parsnips, carrots, turnips, radishes,
and celery root, potatoes, onions, and winter squash. The second pre-
Thanksgiving delivery will include larger quantities of potatoes and
onions.  The final week’s “stock-up” delivery will include onions (~
5#’s), several types of potatoes (15-20#’s), winter squash (5-10 #’s),
an assortment of root vegetables (~ 5 #’s) and cabbage. The total
weight of the “stock-up” will be at least 35 #’s.

There will be less winter squash than last year, in part because it
did not keep well for some members last year and also because there
was not a great crop this season. John hopes to have some greens such
as kale or spinach, broccoli, and/ or Brussels sprouts in the final
week delivery.  He is growing lots of interesting Asian greens, such
as baby bok choy, tatsoi, hon tsai tai, as well as arugula, broccoli
raab, spinach and escarole, that will also be ready for the winter
extension.

T he new egg-poultry order form on the Google group website.  Over the winter,
Havenwood Farm switches to an every other Friday delivery schedule.
November will continue to be every other Tuesday (November 3rd and
17th) but will switch to Fridays beginning December 5th.  In addition,
now that it is getting cold, Ken has to get the chickens out of the
fields.  They can’t live through the winter outside.  He will process
the rest of the flock,cryovack shrink wrap and deep freeze them.  Next
week’s delivery will be fresh broilers.  After that, they will be
frozen broilers. Egg deliveries go year round.

Ken is also taking orders for Thanksgiving turkeys.  They are a broad
breasted white turkey.  Like the broilers, the turkeys are pastured
and fed non-certified organic feed.  They are delicious.  Turkey
delivery will be on Tuesday, November 24th. The order
form is posted on the google group website.
