Mountain Bounty Farm now growing its own winter veggies for CSA

By Mountain Bounty Farm

New and exciting starting this fall, we are changing up our winter veggie share option. Instead of the boxes coming from Riverdog Farm, we will now be packing the boxes ourselves. Although our mountain location is inherently limited when it comes to winter growing, over the years we have been slowly extending our season and experimenting with pushing the limits of what we can grow. 10-15% of the winter veggies will now come from our farm! This is a huge and exciting change for us.

We are continually innovating and we are proud to be at the cutting edge of farming in our area. We will be gathering the remainder of the produce from a small handful of trusted Northern California organic farms who can do winter production. In addition to a handful of others, we will be primarily working with Pinnacle Organic Produce in San Juan Bautista and Route 1 Farms in Santa Cruz – both farms have been growing year-round for many years and are known for high quality organic produce. In each newsletter we will share information about who grew what.

With this new system, we expect the boxes to be more generous and diverse than has been possible in the past. Another result of this change is that we are now able to offer a limited number of small boxes for the winter share. Winter share signups start October 1.

Thanks for supporting Mountain Bounty,
