We are pleased to offer you the option of a winter share at Natural Roots. By adding a winter share, we’ll now be able to feed you for an additional 5 months of the year! Our plan is for winter share distributions to be every other week, (so 10 pickups in all) beginning in mid-November and wrapping up in late March. Pickup times are flexible – you can come any time on any day during the pickup weeks as your schedule and driving conditions permit, though we suggest trying to set a schedule for yourself ahead of time, perhaps even sticking to the regular season share times if you're able to. The squash & sweet potatoes will come as a one-time initial distribution for you to store in your own home, and the rest will be available here throughout the winter. The share will be distributed out of the walk-in cooler attached to our barn, which keeps storage veggies snug and cozy through the winter.

The bi-weekly share includes: Winter Squash & Sweet Potatoes (30 lbs total for full shares, or 15 lbs. for half shares, distributed up front), plus 12 lbs per week for full shares and 6 lbs. per week for half shares of a mix of Cabbages, Carrots, Potatoes, Onions, possibly Leeks and Kale (for November only), Garlic, Beets, Celeriac, Parsnips, Turnips, Rutabaga, and Watermelon Radishes, plus occasional specialty items such as Popcorn and Dried Beans. Greens will generally not be included, but will sometimes be available in the retail cooler for sale. As with our regular season share, some items may be limited, and there is also an overall poundage limit, but you should be able to customize the share to meet your needs. Please let us know if you have particular needs.

Our intent is that a Full Share member will come away with an average of about 15-16 lbs. of food every two weeks (including the up-front crops that you'll store in your house). Roots will be either dry-brushed or washed, depending what they are, so they'll be relatively clean, like what you're used to seeing here. Our winter share price is $260, with a low-income option at $210. We also offer Half Shares, which are half the amounts of the Full Share for most items, with full amounts of specialty items, and are $140, or $115 for the low-income option.
