The lists below will give you a sense of what you might get in one winter share. Zaid sometimes includes milk from Ithaca Milk and cheese from Palatine Cheese. The meat, eggs, and dairy are all from pastured animals. Zaid raises the chickens and eggs himself, so they are certified organic. But some of the beef comes from his neighbors and though it meets organic standards, it is not always certified organic. Keep in mind that winter temperatures tend to be much colder in Norwich than they are on Long Island, where Golden Earthworm Farm is located.

Vegetables will be pre-boxed, but items such as flour, eggs, meat, dairy, and the added value items (in glass jars) that are part of each share must be picked up individually. If you come early, you can pick what you want. For instance, Zaid lets you choose between flour and dried beans (both from Cayuga Pure Organics). If you choose flour, you can choose between all-purpose white, half-white, and whole wheat. But if you want to be able to choose, COME EARLY. Otherwise you get what’s left.
