WINTER HARVEST

 

Winter Harvest Buying Club will reopen for the 2017-2018 season in November

 


What is Winter Harvest?


Winter Harvest is an online buying club that has just concluded its now 15th season!

Created by Farm to City, Winter Harvest aims to provide Philadelphia’s communities with access to fresh, locally produced food during the winter and spring months (November-April) when most farmers’ markets are closed.

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

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

Winter Harvest Products


At Winter Harvest, we work with only the most sustainable farmers and artisan producers that the Philadelphia region has to offer!

Producers

Our local farmers and food artisans are selected based on their product quality & freshness and their commitment to sustainable agricultural practices, including organic farming, no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers on vegetables, integrated pest management (IPM) for tree fruit, and pasture management.

In addition, we pride ourselves on supporting producers that offer a different range of products from each other in order to: 

  1. show the vast abundance of products that can be grown and/or produced locally in the Philadelphia region
  2. limit the competition between local farmers and food artisans
  3. mold symbiotic relationships between producers and small business owners who drive our region's economy and local food movement

At Winter Harvest, you will feel secure about your selections as you are also able to use your food dollars to support your health and get fresh, delicious food, support local farmers and food artisans, and become part of a growing movement that promotes farmer welfare and environmental stewardship!

                        Products                      

Since produce in the winter months is limited to greenhouse greens and root crops, many of the products offered though Winter Harvest are meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy – items that are available year round but not always available at farmer’s markets.

You can expect to find an array of leafy greens, root crops, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, herbs, preserves, baked goods, honey, and more!
