The Peconic Land Trust’s winter share program at Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, which gives shareholders access to local produce from the farm's greenhouses and root cellar, is well underway. 

The Peconic Land Trust, a nonprofit organization dedicated to of the conservation of Long Island’s working farms, natural lands and heritage, opened the weekend before Thanksgiving, when shareholders visited the farmshop for autumn vegetables that had just been picked in the fields.  Among the vegetables were carrots, bokchoy, a salad mix of greens, lettuce, turnips, rutabaga, potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic, cabbage, leeks, and a selection of herbs.

The winter share harvest will take place every other week on Fridays and Saturdays through the end of February.  The cost to be a shareholder is prorated as the season continues. Call Robin Harris at 631-283-3195 or visit the website for more information.

Quail Hill Farm is one of the original Community Supported Agriculture farms in the country, and operates on land donated to the Peconic Land Trust by Deborah Ann Light. Since it was founded in 1990, Quail Hill Farm has grown to serve over 250 families, while cultivating over 30 acres.
