There will be 8-12 items each week, which may include a variety of Cooking Greens (kale, collards, tatsoi, spinach), Salad Greens (baby lettuce, arugula, spicy greens mix), Brassicas (Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi), Roots (potatoes, carrots, radishes, beets, rutabaga, celery root, turnips), Fruiting Veggies (winter squash, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, dried beans), and Alliums (garlic, onions). You will receive a weekly newsletter by email at the beginning of each week describing your share items, cooking and storage tips, important dates, helpful hints, recipes, and feature articles from the farmers.  Watch for the dates when registration opens on our Events Calendar.

The Thanksgiving CSA Share will be available for pick up on the Saturday before Thanksgiving at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market from 7 AM until noon or at Tantre Farm from 2 until 5 PM for $120 (specific cost will be determined closer to the start of the season).

A special addition to our share is usually a jar of locally-grown, lacto-fermented veggies (some from Tantre Farm) from a local business called The Brinery (www.thebrinery.com).  Watch for the dates when registration opens on our Events Calendar.

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 $85 (specific cost will be determined closer to the start of the season). This 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 or Tantre Farm from 2 PM – 5 PM in mid December.

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, rutabaga, winter radishes, watermelon radishes, and turnips. We also had green cabbage heads, winter squash, garlic, and onions.  As a special addition we collaborated with a couple of other local artisans and farmers to round out the share with a bag of tender, organic, baby micro-greens from Garden Works, a loaf of artisanal sourdough bread from The Mother Loaf Breads (www.motherloaf.org), a jar of pickled green tomatoes and a bottle of tomato kvass from The Brinery (www.thebrinery.com).

The 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 dates when registration opens on our Events Calendar.

Midwinter Morning’s Dream Share:

We would like to offer you the warmth and sustenance of our new, Shakespeare-inspired, Midwinter Morning’s Dream Share available on a Saturday in February at the Washtenaw Food Hub from 9 AM – noon or Tantre Farm from 2 – 5 PM for around $90 (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 new Dream Share.

Every year is slightly different, but in the past besides some combination of Tantre Farm’s root cellar vegetables (cabbage, rutabaga, potatoes, watermelon radish, daikon radish, white turnips, garlic, winter squash, carrots), this share has featured 1 loaf of Dan’s potato-rosemary bread (24 oz.), 1 pint of Byesar white bean dip from El Harrisa Market Cafe (www.elharissa.com), 1 quart of Hot and Sour Cabbage soup from Juicy Kitchen (www.juicykitchen-a2.com), and a bag of frozen blueberries from Locavorious (www.locavorious). We also featured a jar of the Brinery’s (www.theBrinery.com) Tantre sauerkraut and a colorful, tasty, thinly shaved, root cellar salad, as well as a bag of tender, organic microgreens from Garden Works.

It is not the midsummer time of a Midsummer Night’s Dream, but it is definitely “midwinter”, and we thought you might enjoy a Shakespeare-inspired Dream Share to shake away the winter doldrums.  Watch for the dates when registration opens on our Events Calendar.
