What is Winter Harvest?

Winter Harvest is a buying club now in its 15th season. From Winter Harvest you can order locally produced food during the winter and spring months when most farmers' markets and CSAs are not open. You submit your orders twice a month hrough Farm to City’s web site. Our driver delivers orders weekly to sites in Philadelphia and a number of towns in Montgomery, Delaware, and Camden Counties.

By ordering from Winter Harvest, you use your food dollars to support your good health and get fresh, delicious food, to support local farmers and food artisans, and to become part of a growing movement that promotes farmer welfare and environmental stewardship.

Winter Harvest offers high quality, sustainably produced foods, many of which are otherwise not available to urban households.

Through Winter Harvest you can

  • Order on-line from a list of over 500 food items and other products grown or produced in the Philadelphia region: root crops, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, herbs, preserves, baked goods, honey, and more.
  • Order what you want, when you want it. No minimum order.
  • Feel secure about your selections: most vegetable are grown using sustainable practices and without the use of chemicals. Meat, poultry, and dairy products are from pasture raised, grass-fed animals.
  • Choose your delivery location from the list of 15 communities in the Philadelphia area.

We select the producers for Winter Harvest based on their quality products and their commitment to sustainable agricultural practices, including organic farming, no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers on vegetables, integrated pest management for tree fruit, and pasture management.

So much of the food eaten by Americans is picked or processed in far away places by huge corporations remote from our scrutiny. We don't know who grew or raised it, how farm workers are treated, whether animals are treated humanely, what land and pest management practices are used, and how long the food took to get here. When we get our food from local farmers, we are much more connected to the land and can get answers to these important questions.

Winter Harvest supports local family farmers who are under intense economic pressure due to artificially low food prices and the agricultural policies and programs that favor corporate farming. We include in our list food and other items produced by several food artisans in the Philadelphia area with values similar to our own.

We hope you share our objective of supporting family farms and small food businesses, through the combined purchasing power that Winter Harvest provides.
