Welcome to December 2023!

December 1, 2023

We hope you’ve all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed the end of the CSA season! We’re in the process of tying up loose ends here at the farm, and preparing for winter, and we’re already getting excited for next season!

Only one month left to lock in this year’s prices!

Would you like to join us for the 2024 CSA Season? If so, let us know! Right now, we’re running a special for our CSA shares, but hurry, there’s only one month left! If you put down a $100.00 deposit, you can reserve next year’s share for this year’s prices.

It’s the truth of the economy that prices will probably go up a little next season to cover rising costs of inflation (trust me, we don’t like it any more than you do), and while we haven’t settled on what those prices will be, we’d like to give you all a chance to join us next season for this season’s prices!

Until December 31, 2023, we’re offering a chance to get in for just a little less. You can put down a $100.00 deposit to lock in that price, and then I’ll set up your invoice like I did this year to incorporate any discounts or credits. (Please remember that if you create the full order yourself, I cannot edit the payment amount. Please, please, please do not create a full order for 2024. Just complete the reservation order.)

This offer is good for anyone who is interested in a CSA next season, whether you’re a current member or not, so tell your friends! Now is the time to sign up for 2024. After January 1st, this offer will no longer be valid.

For those that have let me know previously they’d like to be on the list, I’ve sent you an invoice already for that deposit. You’re under no obligation to pay it now, but if you’d like to lock in the 2023 price, you’ll want to jump on that opportunity before the end of the year. Even if your name is on the list, without the deposit, the price will go up come January.

For those that have already paid the deposit, I have sent out your 2024 invoice! You’re welcome to pay on them now, or into next year. The deadline for payment is still May 15, 2024, so no rush! We’re happy to accept checks, credit card payments online, or even post-dated checks that will hang out in our safe until the date on the check.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

We’re back at the Lane County Farmers’ Market this weekend!

After the CSA season, things change a little bit around here, and we took the week off for the holiday, but this weekend, we’re back at the Lane County Farmers’ Market in Eugene! Come check out our booth and stock up on your winter veggies for the holidays. We’ll be at the market every Saturday until right before Christmas, and we would love to see you!

What we’re making this week:

Sure, we’re not delivering veggies for a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make delicious food! Here are some holiday ideas for your table, just in case you need a little inspiration!

  • This gorgeous Root Vegetable Tian is the perfect way to use all your root veggies this month!
  • These Herbed Potato Stacks are both mouth-watering and beautiful, and they’re sure to please even the pickiest of guests!
  • If you’re like me, you still have an abundance of winter squash waiting to be used. Even if you only have a couple, give this Pumpkin and Winter Squash Gratin recipe a go!
  • This Cheesy Brussel Sprout Bake became a fan favorite with my family last year, and continued to please everyone again this year. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should!
  • I’m a big believer that bacon makes everything better, and for this delicious Collard Greens with Bacon dish, it just adds to the flavor!
  • Want to try parsnips as a dessert rather than a side dish? This Parsnip Loaf Cake could be just the ticket!

We hope you’re all having a wonderful holiday season so far!

Many blessings,

Chelsea and your Winter Green Farmers
