What’s in your CSA freezer?

One cool thing about a locally grown frozen produce CSA is that by the end of the harvest, you’ll know what local goodies you’ll have to enjoy in the winter.  Each harvest brings surprises – bumper crops and poor crops, but we start each spring with a plan and some farmers’ optimism!

Here are the anticipated CSA share menus for the Winter 2016-17.  Even with drought in some areas, it was generally a good summer growing season in Michigan.
