Wondering how you can savor the tastes of summer even during the winter? Welcome to Frozen Assets, Farmshed’s frozen veggie program. We will freeze and package vegetables picked during the peak of ripeness and then distribute them to you all winter long.

Sign ups for a 2018/19 share (distributed November 2018-March 2019) will begin on May 1st, 2018.

2017/18 (distributed November 2017-March 2018) shares are still available upon request; Click here to sign up, or stop by Farmshed to fill out a paper form. Scroll down for more information about the Frozen Assets program and our share options!

Why Frozen Assets:

  • Frozen Assets Vegetables are free of additives and preservatives.
  • Frozen Assets Vegetables are already prepped and ready to use.
  • We only use top quality produce from certified organic CSA farms.
  • Your purchase will support local farms and Farmshed programming.
  • We utilize renewable solar energy to assist our food processing and storage.

How it works:

  1. Farmshed places orders in the spring with Certified Organic CSA partner farms from the Farm Fresh Atlas.
    • Cattail Organics
    • Field Notes Farm
    • Red Door Family Farm
    • Whitefeather Organics   
  2.  Farmshed members will be offered shares of Frozen Assets (a collection of vegetables that have been frozen at the peak of freshness), mimicking a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model.   
    • A limited number of whole (100 lbs of frozen vegetables) and half (50 lbs of frozen vegetables) shares will be available.
    • As produce items come in throughout the growing season (see attached schedule) the Farmshed Kitchen Coordinator and willing members will break down, process, and package them into 1 lb bags.
    • Participating shareholders that volunteer during processing will receive $10 off their share at the end of the season for each kitchen session worked.
    • Shares will be available for member pick up starting mid-November and will go until late-March at two locations. Members also have the option to pick up all of their shares at once!
      • Farmshed in Stevens Point

Why Farmshed Started Freezing Their Assets:

  • Funding from the USDA Local Food Promotion Program in 2016 enabled us to finish the Farmshed Community Kitchen and develop a food processing model that will help sustain it long term.
  • People have requested more ways to access local vegetables in the winter, due to Wisconsin’s short growing season.
  • Working directly with farmers to set fair prices and contracting for product ahead of the season helps to build an equitable food system.
  • In a 2015 community survey, 84% of responders reported that they were most interested in freezing as a preservation technique.
  • Freezing food at peak ripeness preserves nutrients almost to the level of their fresh counterparts.
