Happy Holidays from Good Heart!

Happy Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, all the Holidays!

We actually do celebrate all three, spending a night with good family friends lighting the Menorah, singing songs, and eating latkes; another night gathering with family at home to light candles for solstice; and closing the holiday season with Christmas, tree lit up and our traditional turkey dinner gracing the table.

I’m realizing that being a farmer lends itself to diversification far beyond the fields. 

To recognizing the strength in coming together, whether it be planting basil along rows of tomatoes, or sharing traditions.  The more I grow and connect, the closer I get to the fact that we share the same soil.

In that light, I want to say again thank you.

Thanks for being part of the Good Heart CSA, for helping us grow simply by showing up for your share each week.

Community Supported Agriculture, at it’s best, is also Agriculture Supported Community, and we strive to support your health through the fresh, organic vegetables we grow for you.

We’re always striving to make local organic food more accessible, and I’m very excited to announce that we will officially be accepting EBT/SNAP payments for CSA shares in 2018!

If you qualify for EBT, you also qualify for the NOFA-VT Farm Share Program subsidy.  This combination allows you to purchase a CSA share at half off, and use your EBT to pay for the share.  I’ll be sending out more information on this as we get closer to the Spring Share.

If you’re looking for the best discount on your 2018 CSA, take advantage of our December Deal:

The Full-Season Share : March 19 – November 19

  • Save 15% when you sign up and pay in full by 12/31 :
    • Market Value: $974
    • December sale price: $827.90

Your December sign-up greatly supports the farm and will help us purchase propane for the greenhouse, seeds, potting soil, and keep the farm running all winter long.

VEGETABLE STORAGE TIPS

Root vegetables: store in a plastic bag in the fridge

Onions & Garlic: best stored in a cool, dry place, such as the pantry.  Can also be stored in an insulated garage, so long as the temperature does not dip below 32º

Kraut & Magic Soup Starter: store in the fridge.

Roasted Tomatoes & Parsley Pesto: store in the freezer until ready to use, then store any left over in the fridge.  Both are great in sauces, on pizza, or casseroles/lasagnas, and more!
