Just A Few Reminders Before The Season Begins

We wanted to let you know that your first pickup of the 2014 Spring CSA season will be on Tuesday May 6th.

 Below is some information about how the pickups work.

If you are going to be out of town and are unable to pick up your box on a certain pick-up date, you can notify us ahead of time. We will skip your share that week and double your share the following week. You are allowed to do this up to three times during the 2014 season.

  If you have something come up at the last minute and can not pick up your share at the scheduled time please notify us and we will contact the pickup location and do our best to arrange a time that you can pick it up. We want to do everything that we can to insure that everyone gets their produce, eggs and canned or baked goods.

You can order extra items from the baked and canned goods sheet by e-mail before your pickup. We do need 3 days notice on baked goods though. We will send you an invoice at the end of the month for any extra items you have ordered. Please pay for these by mailing us a check. Please do not leave payment at the pick up location or in the empty box you are returning.

  We do want everyone to know that members are welcome to come out and visit the farm. Just let us know when you would like to come out and we will set up a time with you.

  When you go to your pick-up location to pick up your CSA box, eggs or whatever else you have to pick up, please take time to be sure to pick up your stuff and leave the other people's stuff there. This can cause a lot of confusion and problems if you pick up the wrong stuff. If you are having someone else pick up your share please make sure and let them know that your name will be on the produce box. Eggs should be in a box or crate and there should be a sheet of paper on or by it with your name and how many dozen are yours. All of the pickup locations except for Peebles and Kenwood are members’ homes and the boxes are usually located on the porch. We do ask that you please keep things as neat as possible.

  We do ask that you bring back your empty box from the previous week and flatten it and stack it neatly. It will help us out if you return empty egg cartons and berry boxes also. Besides helping keep our costs down, returning containers for reuse helps lessen the impact on the environment as well.

  If you have any questions please let us know.

     Thank You!
