Expanding Winter Harvest and Sales for New England Vegetable Crops

Farmers in New England are responding to the steadily increasing public desire for year-round access to local food. Growing and selling enough fresh vegetables in the winter months to satisfy market demands requires both adapting traditional techniques and technologies, and adopting altogether new ones. This website aims to be a robust resource for information on winter vegetable farming – from production to storage to sales.
