Mile Hill Farms & Root Cellar Gardens: Storage Vegetable Order Form 2017
Our Storage Vegetable order is an increasingly popular way to purchase your fix of fresh, local veggies. Through this order you have the chance to 'put your name' on the veggies you want, and avoid the rush to the farmer's market before things sell out. You can order a lot (to store and see you through the winter), or a little... or anything in between. We are excited to present our 2017 order form below.

Only organic gardening methods used in all vegetable production on Mile Hill Farms & at Root Cellar Gardens.Garden soils have been made richer by growing nitrogen rich crops, then turning the crops directly into the soil. By rotating where plants are grown each year we cut down on disease, and pest problems.

We strictly adhere to the following standards with our purchasing of seed, planting, and garden care and maintenance:
* No use of chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides
* No use of chemical fertilizers
* No use of genetically modified organisms

While both Mile Hill Farms and Root Cellar Gardens adhere to the same strict ecological growing stands, source farm (Root Cellar Gardens / Mile Hill Farms) is identified throughout the order form using initials (RCG/MHF) for your information.

Storage vegetable orders are available on two separate dates (determined by harvest times for each veggie). This year's pick up information is as follows (but can vary depending on seasonal weather issues):

*Friday September 1 pick up: garlic, frozen pesto, kohlrabi, and frozen peas. (*These Items have been delivered as ordered and are no longer available on this order form.)
**Friday September 29 pick up: carrots, beets, leeks, onions, celeriac, parsnips, rutabaga, and squash.
Pick up will be at the site of the Thunder Bay Country Market on the proposed dates.
Note- Pick up WILL NOT BE during regular market hours for ease of parking close to the veggies, and less carrying!
(We will send out a confirmation and reminder of pick up closer to harvest time.)

You will receive a confirmation of your order once it has been placed. Orders are filled on a first come, first serve basis so don't delay!

The Switch to Metric
In 2016 Mile Hill Farms and Root Cellar Gardens went metric with their units of sale (where applicable). A quick reminder to help you shift your thinking when you place your order:

1 lb = 454 g, so basically just less than 1/2 a kilogram.
Garlic (Leningrad): $22.00 / 500g MHF No Longer Available on this order
This storage garlic should last you until garlic is ready next year, so long as it is kept cool and dry. Leningrad packs a lot of punch. Leningrad has become a staple thanks to its excellent flavour, and long storage life. This variety has 4-6 cloves per bulb.

Large organic carrots for winter keeping in your cold storage. In a crate, layer your uncleaned carrots in sawdust, soil, or peat moss. Make sure you trim the tops off your carrots at the "shoulders" to prevent winter growth. Most families use from 20 to 60 pounds over winter.

Store parsnips the same way you store your carrots and they will keep well into the winter (if you don’t eat them all, that is!).
Rutabagas: $3.50/ kg RCG *
This turnip cousin, often used in soups and stews. But really, rutabagas can be so much more! They are an extremely hardy root vegetable, and as such also lend themselves to braising, roasting, and mashing.

Kohlrabis are round, mild flavoured members of the cabbage family. They have a wonderful juicy crispness and can be enjoyed raw or cooked. While many smaller varieties of kohlrabi are best eaten soon after harvest, these small-cabbage sized ones store well into the winter!
