Order your Grown in Detroit’s 2014 Harvest Share Today! The Harvest Share will supply you with delicious local produce just in time for your Thanksgiving feast or harvest celebration and provide you with plenty of extra to store in your pantry for the winter. In the tradition of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), you purchase a “share” of what the farm has to offer this season and then pick up your box the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (November 25th).
WHAT’S IN MY SHARE AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? We are offering a half share (approximately 20 lbs), a full share (approximately 35 lbs), with an option of a ‘Detroit Grown and Made’ bonus of 4 local value-added products. Although Mother Nature ultimately decides what will be in abundance for the Harvest Share this November, we anticipate the following vegetables will be included.*
• Kale, Chard, and Collard Greens (will keep for a week in the fridge) • Salad Greens, Spinach, and Arugula (will keep for a week in the fridge) • Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes (will store for weeks in the pantry or months in cold storage) • Winter Squash (will store for months at room temperature) • Garlic (will store for months at room temperature) • Herbs (will keep for a week in the fridge, but best FRESH in those decadent harvest meals!) • Leeks (will store for weeks in the fridge)
Make your share “Detroit Grown & Made” for just $40 more. Bring color, flavor, and great conversation to your table with these products from local food entrepreunuers!
• Fresh Cut Flowers Holiday Bouquet • Beau Bien Fine Foods’ Italian Green Tomato Preserves • Slow Jams Red Hot Pepper Seasonal Preserves • Mrs. Pruitt’s Gourmet Cha Cha Salsa
