This is what we do best... Grow food in the summer, harvest it, pack it in the cellar and feed our neighbors throughout the winter!
We are committed to growing this CSA and making a large variety of vegetables available to folks in the off-season. We currently grow over 75 varieties of vegetables just for storage. It's truly amazing how much diversity you can have in your winter diet even if you just eat vegetables from Maine!
