Winter Sample Shares

We've gotten quite a few questions about the differences between the Winter Meat Share and the Winter Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian Share, especially given that they're priced the same. The meat share includes meat, assorted vegetables, dairy and local NY products, while the lacto-ovo share includes the same products but without the meat.  However, the lacto-ovo share compensates for the lack of meat with an increased quantity of vegetables and/or NY products (e.g. jar items). This way, the lacto-ovo share is of the same value as the meat share.
 
Interested in knowing what is in a typical Winter CSA share? Below are a few sample shares (both meat and lacto-ovo) that will give you a sense of the products you can expect.
