Even when snow is falling, we offer green and delicious food, fresh picked from our farm.
Red Planet has always offered some of its most flavorful produce during the cold months, grown with a system of row covers and mostly unheated high tunnels. We plan for an exciting mix of arugula, spinach, lettuces, radishes, turnips, cooking greens, broccoli, cabbage and herbs, and will try to have a surprise or two as well.
We run two separate CSA sessions during the cold months of the year. The Early Winter CSA starts on Thanksgiving week and runs for seven weeks through early January. The Early Spring CSA kicks off in early or mid March and runs for another seven weeks through April. Precise start dates for both sessions are left open until we are sure to have the produce available.
The Early Winter CSA is full, but you can still sign up for the Early Spring CSA below:

A note about WINTER WEATHER: Our aim is always to offer a share every week, but sometimes the winter weather is just too awful and we have to take snow days for everyone’s well-being. Just like with school, our policy is to add a pickup later in the session to make up for the missed week.
