WHAT WILL BE IN THE BOX?
Seasonal farm fresh veggie & fruits. 5-7 items per week. Some of these items may be multiple but will count as one item - ex: sweet corn - you may receive 4-6 ears, tomatoes - 1 pint cherry or 2-6 slicers - depending on harvest & time of year. Produce will vary according to the season. Weight of box will vary - melons weighing more than salad mix.
WHY DO WE PAY IN ADVANCE?
When you subscribe to the Veggie Subscription/CSA we make an investment on your behalf. Seeds & materials are purchased with you in mind. We start the process in February beginning seeds in trays and planting in the fields March through April. Time, Labor & supplies are spent on your box long before you begin to receive your first box in May.
WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT VACATIONS?
We are not able to track everyone's vacation schedule - we also need a place for the veggies to go - even while you are away. You may make plans to have a neighbor or friend pick up your box.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I FORGET TO PICK UP MY BOX?
Your produce will be donated to a local soup kitchen or distributed to workers at the farm.
DO YOU HAVE HALF SHARES?
We are not able to offer half shares – you may want to make arrangements to share your box with a neighbor or co-worker.
CAN WE ORDER EXTRA PRODUCE?
You may email an order for extra produce. We will put a bill in your box & you may pay by mail - honor system. This would include free range eggs, cheese and honey as well . Not available at all sites. We do ask that you patronize the retail businesses. They graciously allow us to drop our boxes at their site and we like to return the favor.
