Thanks to everyone who got shares, and all the farmers who contributed produce for making it a success this year!
The shares includes all the heirloom-variety veggies you need for a Thanksgiving meal of 6-8 people (except the cranberry sauce), plus organic apples, grape juice, wheat flour and cornmeal, AND an heirloom centerpiece pumpkin (in addition to a pie pumpkin) and an ornamental corn bouquet, along with a storybook with details and stories about each veggie, photos, recipes and information about the different farmers who contributed to this share (there’s quite a number of us!). We will also be coordinating our deliveries with Jessi Wood and Joey Stout of HumbleRoots Heritage, so you can get your heritage-breed turkey delivered at the same time as the Heirloom Thanksgiving Share.
The vegetables and herbs in the share will include: German Butterball Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, New England Pie Pumpkin, Red Onions, Baby Onions, Cippolini Onions, Leeks, Hard-Neck Garlic, Beets, Carrots, Celeriac, Rainbow Lacinato Kale, Brussel Sprouts, Rosemary, Parsley, Sage, Thyme, Coriander, an Ornamental Corn Bouquet, Centerpiece Pumpkin, Organic Apples from Kalliroe Farm, King of the North Grape Juice from Lac Qui Parle Vineyard, and Dryweather Creek Farm Organic Flour and Cornmeal.
How it works: We’ll be delivering the shares to the Twin Cities the Saturday before Thanksgiving (Nov. 20) for pick-up, and for western Minnesota the beginning of the week of Thanksgiving. The cost of one share is $120 for western Minnesota, and an additional $5 for transportation if you live in the cities. There are only 20 shares available, so reserve yours today by emailing us at WoolyBearFarm@gmail.com (please specify whether you are in western Minnesota or the Twin Cities) and sending us an initial payment of $20 to hold your spot (to Seth Schlotterbeck, 5075 100th Ave NW, Milan, MN 56262).
