What We’re Growing in 2014

Here is a rough idea of what you can expect.  Each week, the share will contain about 6-10 of the following items, and about 8-10 pounds per week on average:

Early (June-July): Arugula, Beets, Bok Choy, Carrots, Cilantro, Collards, Escarole, Fava Beans, Kale, Parsley, Butterhead and Curly leaf lettuce, Sugar Snap Peas, Radish, Scallions, Baby Turnips, and Broccoli

Mid (August-September): Basil, Cabbage, Carrots, Celeriac, Sungold and Black Cherry Tomatoes, Cilantro, Collards, Cucumber, Eggplant, Garlic, Lettuce, Green Beans, Kale, Onions, Potatoes, Peppers, Zucchini and other Summer Squash, Swiss Chard, and Heirloom Tomatoes

Late (October-November): Arugula, Beets, Bok Choy, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Chicory, Collards, Kale, Lettuce, Parsley, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, and Butternut, Acorn and Delicata Winter Squash.

This year we are using even more open-pollinated and heirloom varieties in hopes of keeping the genetic diversity of delicious vegetables alive.  We want to bring you the best regionally adapted varieties that perform well in our area, and exquisite taste to your palate!  I can’t even name all of the varieties here but I’ll try to name a few.  Corno di Toro Italian Frying Pepper, Rosa Bianca Eggplant, Deer Tongue Lettuce, Cherokee Purple Tomatoes, Kennebec and German Butterball Potatoes, New England Pie and Long Island Cheese Pumpkins, and Turnips from the seeds grown year after year by our wonderful New City neighbor Eugene.  Altogether we are growing around fifty different crops, with over 150 varieties total!

      Hi Jane,

      All the answers you seek are in the CSA Membership Agreement link. Pick ups take place at the farm. embers choose either Tuesday or Saturday as their pick up day for the season.

      If you have any more questions, please email us at info@rocklandfarm.org and we’ll be happy to help!

      Jessica
