Winter Solstice Share:
Entice your soul with a Solstice Share from Tantre Farm to be picked up on a Saturday in mid December! If you would like to offer the perfect gift for the person, who has everything, why not try a Solstice Share for around $100 (specific cost will be determined closer to the start of the season). This mid December share is in honor of celebrating the longest night of the year and the beginning of the countdown for summer with pick up at the Washtenaw Food Hub from 9 AM – Noon, Tantre Farm from 2 PM – 5 PM, or at Argus Farm Stop-Packard from 8 AM until 6 PM.
Every year is slightly different, but in the past we offered the best from our root cellar for roasting, slaws, and soups, including purple and orange carrots, beets, potatoes, Daikon radishes, watermelon radishes, and Brussels sprouts. We also had kohlrabi, kale, winter squash, pie pumpkins, and onions. As a special addition we collaborate with other local artisans and farmers to round out the share with something different every year such as: a bag of tender, organic, baby micro-greens from Garden Works, a loaf of artisanal bread, a jar of tasty, lacto-fermented surprises from The Brinery (www.thebrinery.com), a savory, prepared food dish from Harvest Kitchen (www.harvest-kitchen.com) and organic apples from Mana Farms.
The Winter Solstice Share is our way of celebrating the end of the year’s harvest, as we head towards the shortest days of the year. This is a share that will sustain your winter hunger and cleanse the indulgent palette. Watch for the specific date when registration opens on our Events Calendar.
Midwinter Morning’s Dream Share:
We would like to offer you the warmth and sustenance of our Shakespeare-inspired, Midwinter Morning’s Dream Share available on a Saturday in February or March at the Washtenaw Food Hub from 9 AM – Noon, Tantre Farm from 2 – 5 PM, or at Argus Farm Stop-Packard from 9 AM until 6 PM for around $95 (specific cost will be determined closer to the start of the season). We are excited to be combining our efforts with several local food artisans and farmers again to further strengthen our vision with the power of local networking through our Dream Share.
Every year is slightly different, but in the past besides some combination of Tantre Farm’s root cellar vegetables (beets, potatoes, parsnips, daikon radish, onions, winter squash, carrots), this share has featured a loaf of artisan-made bread, a quart of soup from Harvest Kitchen (www.harvest-kitchen.com), a bag of frozen blueberries from Locavorious (www.locavorious.com), a jar of the Brinery’s (www.theBrinery.com) sauerkraut, and a bag of tender, organic microgreens from Garden Works Organic Farm.
This share is not distributed during the midsummer time of a Midsummer Night’s Dream, but rather in the “midwinter” dreams of February or March. Perhaps you will enjoy a “Shakespeare-inspired” Dream Share to shake away the winter doldrums. Watch for the specific date when registration opens on our Events Calendar.
