Announcement: Winter Apple CSA

Announcement from Hemlock Grove Farm:

We are pleased to announce that we are now adding a winter session to our apple CSA. Eat local organic apples though the winter months with our new wintertime apple CSA!


Similar to our fall CSA, shareholders will receive 60 pounds of delicious certified organic apples spread over 6 bi-weekly distributions, starting December 5th and ending February 20th. Each distribution will supply shareholders with a 10 pound bag containing a changing selection of our best winter storage apples, such as Melrose, Idared, Baldwin, Enterprise, Fuji, Jonagold, Mutsu and Northern Spy. Shares cost $95.

Two distribution sites are being held in cooperation with the Full Plate Farm Collective, at Stick and Stone Farm (4 ½ miles north of Ithaca on Route 96) and Three Swallows Farm (just 3 miles south of Ithaca on 96B).

Apple bags will be available for pickup at these two locations beginning on Thursday afternoons on distribution days, and remain available until the following Wednesday. However, the sooner you get your apples home and in your fridge, the longer they will keep, and the sooner you can enjoy them!

We are also collaborating with Jenn & Andy's to offer a downtown pick-up site. They are located caddy-corner from the library at 124 S. Cayuga Street. This pick-up will be Thursdays only, from 12:00-6:30pm.

To sign up, send a check for $95 made out to Hemlock Grove Farm to the address below. Indicate your preferred pick-up site (Three Swallows, Stick and Stone, or Jenn & Andy's), and please include your email address on your check!
