All of us at the Valley Roots Food Hub wish you and your families a very happy Thanksgiving! We hope you stay safe, are surrounded by loved ones, and eat great food. We are so grateful for all of our CSA customers this year who have sought us out during these challenging times, and continue to support our local food economy. We certainly wouldn't be here without all of you!
Traditionally every year we take Thanksgiving off, as Thursdays are our heavy aggregation days. We take pause to celebrate our milestones, give thanks, and break bread with our loved ones. We will be back with regular ordering next week, starting with Friday 4 PM order deadline for Tuesday delivery.
Turkey's are still available for purchase this holiday season. We are putting them in reusable cardboard boxes with your names on them, so be sure to thoroughly check the pickup location for your turkey.
There are still 4 Winter Fresh Box shares available for December 18th, at the one box rate of $50!

At Fagerberg Farms, two different planting techniques are used for our onion crops.
Direct seeded onion planting begins in mid-March and is completed in roughly three weeks. We plant all colors of seeded onions and generally yield a 70/30 percent medium to jumbo mix. Direct seeded onions are harvested using both machine and hand topping techniques. Harvest begins in September and is finished in early October. These onions are processed out of storage until the following March.
Set onions are initially planted via seed near Phoenix, AZ in late November. They are then harvested throughout March and April before being transplanted by hand in Colorado in April and May. Fagerberg Farms raises all colors of set onions and produces a 75/25 percent jumbo to medium mix. Set onions are ready for fresh crop shipment out of Colorado on August 1st.
Fagerberg Farms uses sub-surface drip irrigation, an innovative watering practice which requires less water, fewer chemicals and more efficient applications. The result of drip irrigation is a more uniform crop with a predictable growth pattern. Throughout the years, we have been recognized in the farming industry for our water conservation efforts and sustainable farming practices.
Northeastern Colorado has generally a dry, mild climate that offers all four seasons. The warm summer days and cool nights create ideal onion growing conditions. Our autumn weather is very predictable and allows Fagerberg Farms to accurately forecast harvest dates. This weather pattern has proved beneficial in providing firm transition dates to our customers.
