Where do I pick up my share/Farm Pick Up Procedure

We will be continuing the Market Style pick up at the farm this season.  If you have specific questions concerns about the Market Style, please refer to that section of this FAQ page.

You will find that our produce will be displayed in the share room.  When you arrive, you will give the staffer your name, they will check you off of the checklist. You may pick up an empty box and then proceed around the room, filling it with your share of the vegetables.  Each item will have a sign denoting how much of the item you can take, depending on your share size.  Some items will have number and others will need to be weighed.

We will have the vegetables laid out in such a way that by starting at one end,  you will be putting the bigger and heavier items in first, and then the delicate items like lettuce or tomatoes in last.

At the end of the pick up there will be a trade table where you can exchange items from your box.  There will also be some ‘free choice’ items, often items that we don’t have a lot of or are ‘seconds’ that you can add to your share.

Egg Shares will be at the main table and will be given out by the staffer at the end of your pick up.

What if I miss a pick up?

Any left over shares at the end of a pick up are placed in our walk-in cooler, located in the Share Room at the farm.  We tend to label the shares that include eggs or other special items.  The regular shares will not necessarily be labelled, but any information about them will be written on the white board on the door of the walk-in.

We hold shares for no longer than 48 hours after the pick up, and you are welcome to come to the farm anytime between 8 am – 5 pm to collect your share.  Please contact us in case of this situation.

Can someone else pick up my share for me?

Yes.  Please let them know what to expect upon arrival and have them be sure to give the name associated with the share.

Can I visit the farm?

Absolutely! We encourage our members (and non-members) to come met our farmers and spend a few minutes or a few hours. We hope that everyone can make it out at least once during the season! Especially for at least one of our fun events!  One of the benefits of being a CSA member is that you get to know who your farmer is and where your vegetables are coming from.  It is a great experience just to walk around the fields and see first-hand what our farm is like.
