“What does a winter CSA box look like?”...... •
• Our winter boxes have a main focus of root vegetables such a potatoes onions, garlic, carrots, turnip, beets etc. Because we can grow and store these items over the winter. This ensures that we can still provide locally grown produce. 🥕🍠
• We also get a helping hand from local green houses like @link_greenhouses so that we can get our members lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers. 🥒🍅🥬
• Notice all of the dirt on the root vegetables? This is for storage purposes, the dirt helps prevent the produce from breaking down, making it store longer.

These are Cooper’s Butt Chops.
This post is not to show you how delicious they look, it is to show what our meat looks like after you thaw it. ALL of our meat is FROZEN. Some believe that if you freeze meat then all of the flavour will be lost , this is false! We have tested this on all of our products over and over.
The difference is that our meat cuts are frozen immediately after they are cut from the carcass. They do not sit out on a butcher counter for a week or in a store display then frozen because they didn’t sell. We call our meat ‘frozen fresh’, which means all of the juicy flavours are still in the cuts and they still taste juicy once thawed & cooked.
Remember when we set our pigs out to clean up our pumpkin patch ? 🎃 swipe to see what it looks like now...... next project, the 10 ac corn maze! #pasturepork #rotationalgrazing #naturalfertilizer #pigsonpasture #berkshirepigs

FREEZER RE-STOCKED!! We are open this Saturday from 10am-3pm. We have lots of meat cuts & pre-made meals available. 🥩🍗🥓🍔
• We freeze all of our meats. They are ‘Frozen Fresh’ which means as soon as they are cut off of the animal, they are packaged & frozen. Our pre-made meals make a great quick dinner, the plus side is that the sodium is very low compared to store bought, ready made meals.

It’s a beautiful night to get lost in a corn maze ! 🌚🌽 #cooperscsafarm #nightcornmaze #fallfun
We’re a small farm, so we use equipment that fits our size. This is our potato digger, mounted on our 1990 maxxum tractor. It digs the potatoes out of the ground and we come along with buckets and scoop them up !
Some of these potatoes will be stored for seed for next spring and some will be used in our winter shares ! 🥔

Holy kale tree ! They just keep on growin’ . I’m 5’1 and this kale plant is half my size .🌱#cooperscsafarm #kale #superfood
The rain has passed us and we’ve got a little bit of sunshine :) If you’re looking for some fun things to do today or TONIGHT, come by the farm.
You’ll need a warm jacket and a good sense of direction!

It is over cast conditions but the rain is ending soon! We are on very sandy soil, WHICH MEANS the puddles don’t stay long, they drain away into the sand. So extremely muddy conditions are not a problem, but bring those wellies so you can enjoy jumping in a puddle a two.
Today we have wagon rides, the maze, the farm kitchen open AND we now have our word clue scavenger hunt up :) If you want something fun to do before dinner then come on over!

Don’t like baking, ran out of time, tend to put too much salt in things?
