Green Gate Farms CSA Winter Shares Begins

Winter Shares Begin Next Week – Join Us

January 2014

After the holiday season of sweets and feasts, we are ready for something different. Here at the farm, our bodies are craving things that crunch and have a bite — sharp arugula, tangy broccoli, crisp white turnips, bright carrots, crunchy lettuce, shredded cabbage. Bring on the flavors of winter in Central Texas!

If you’re ready for a change too, we’re here to help. Our organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program begins next week. This means 75* lucky members will receive a small share of what our fields produce each week until mid-March.
