Kretschmann farm has a winter CSA! Hooray! Contact them quickly if you want to be a part of it. Here's what they say about it:
"We are planning a “winter” veggie delivery for next week, Dec. 5 and Dec.6. This is different than the summer boxes in that you may opt in or out of the box each month.
We’ll have dropoffs on Wednesday in Highland Park, Bloomfield/Friendship, the East End, Churchill, Squirrel Hill, and Beechwood Nature Ctr/Fox Chapel. Thursday we’ll have boxes to Wexford, Northside, Mt. Lebanon, Sewickley, and at the farm. The pickup day and place will likely be different from your normal one. We will drop off by 2:30 and ask that you pick up by 7:00.
Here’s a list of what we plan to have in the box:
A bag spinach or mesclun salad greens, 5# Fuji apples, 5# potatoes, 2#beets, 3# carrots, 2# turnips, 1 cabbage(green), mixed herbs (rosemary, sage, thyme), 2 large onions, Lg bunch kale, 1 head radicchio, 2 large butternut squash. The cost is $45. If anything changes, we’ll increase other items or figure a reduced price. These are larger amounts of many items than your usual in-season box. Most everything except the greens should store well even without refrigeration for quite a time.
In addition to the mixed veggie box we can have as an addition or as the only item(s) ½ bu Fuji or York apples @$20, ½ bu. red, white, or yellow potatoes @ $20, and bu. butternut squash @$20. We’ve also got goat’s milk cheese available—mild white cheddar, farmers, or sharp yellow cheddar @ $9/lb--and coffee from Building New Hope—regular ground & whole bean @$9./lb. and decaf ground @$11./lb.
We still will plan a delivery for the week of 12/19. You can get a box both times if you would like (though the dropoff spots are sometimes a problem). We’ll contact you later. "
