Our Solstice Share will give you an opportunity to enjoy the longest day of the year with plenty of nutritional, flavorful sustenance. Registrations need to be finalized by Dec. 13, so we have time to harvest and organize your shares in time for the Solstice CSA Distribution Day on Saturday, December 16. You will have 3 Pick Up options: The Washtenaw Food Hub (4175 Whitmore Lake Rd., Ann Arbor, 48105) from 9 AM until Noon, Tantre Farm (2510 Hayes Rd., Chelsea, 48118) from 2 until 5 PM, or Pure Pastures (1192 Ann Arbor ROAD, Plymouth, 48170) from 9 AM until 7 PM.
Once again we are offering online registrations, so please refer to the following payment options.
1. Credit card payments (online transaction, so you pay a small 3% fee in addition to the $95)–If you are splitting a share, please make only one credit card payment.
2. Check payments FOR $95 (no online fee)– If you would like to use a check, you will receive an invoice response in your email after registering. Then you can send a check (or checks, if you are splitting a share) written out to “Tantre Farm” to our mailing address for the balance due listed on the invoice. IF YOU ARE SPLITTING A SHARE, PLEASE INCLUDE BOTH CHECKS IN THE SAME ENVELOPE.

This share honors the celebration of the longest night of the year and the beginning of the countdown for summer! We are offering the best from our root cellar for roasting, salads, and soups, including carrots (purple, red, and orange), potatoes (blue, yellow, red), Daikon radishes, watermelon radishes, turnips, beets, green cabbage, several kinds of winter squash, pie pumpkins, onions, kale, Brussels sprouts, and parsnips. As a special addition, we are collaborating with other local food artisans and farmers to round out the share with a bag of tender, pea or sunflower shoots from Garden Works Organic Farm, a sourdough loaf of locally-made, artisan bread from Mill Pond Bread (www.millpondbread.com), a jar of tasty lacto-fermented surprises from The Brinery (www.thebrinery.com), and even a savory, vegetarian, prepared food dish from Harvest Kitchen (www.harvest-kitchen.com). The Solstice Share is an idea that has sprung forth as we head toward these shortest days of the year. This is our way of celebrating the true end of the year’s harvest. This is a share that will sustain your winter hunger and cleanse the indulgent palette!
