Our crops are grown using organic methods, although we are not certified organic.  Some of the vegetables in the Fall Share will be crops we’ve harvested and hold in storage, for example, beets, winter squash, sweet potatoes, potatoes, kohlrabi, onions, cabbages, winter radishes, popcorn, Gilfeather turnips, and celery root. Some of the vegetables will be freshly harvested from our farm fields, including beet greens, carrots, chard, collard greens, kale, leeks, lettuce, radicchio, spinach and salad turnips. Some of these crops will be protected from frost with agricultural row covers.

Distribution Days and Times for the Fall CSA Shares will be distributed on Saturdays, November 8, November 22, December 6 and December 20 from noon to 3:00 PM. Please note that Fall CSA share distributions are EVERY OTHER WEEK.

Location The shares will be distributed from the CSA Barn at Moraine Farm, Cabot Street in Beverly.

Size and Cost  This share is the right size for one or two adults who enjoy vegetables or a small family with limited time to cook. In addition to veggies you will want to eat right away, it includes vegetables well suited for preserving (freezing, pickling, canning) or fresh storage. The share costs $250, with a $25 discount for those who purchase a share before October 1. Shareholders must be members of The Trustees of Reservations (TTOR) to purchase a share. TTOR membership can be purchased on-line.
