What is U-Pic?
U-Pic is where members are able to pick their own goods on pick up days. U-Pic crops are determined and set by our farm manager and you will receive the list with your CSA list on Mondays.
What is the difference between a Full and Half Share?
The only difference between a full and half share is how often you pick up. A full share is picked up every week, whereas a half share is picked up every other week.
What is the Total Season?
Our season is 26 weeks from November-May.
Can we choose which veggies are in the boxes?
No. We offer a variety of fresh, all-organic produce in season. Every share has the same selection of produce, according to what is being harvested that week.
What do I do if I am unable to pick up one week?
We do not offer credit for boxes that you are unable to pick up, but you are able to gift your share to a friend or family member. Please email us at email@example.com to let us know who will be picking up.
What would I do with vegetables that I don’t use enough of or like?
Many of our members have been pleasantly surprised to try our recipes with new vegetables, which they previously had never considered. If there are still some vegetables that you don’t like, you can share them with family/friends/co-workers.
Do you grow fruit?
No, we do not grow fruit at this time, but we do offer a farmers market on Sundays from 11am-3pm where you are able to purchase organic items that we are unable to grow. Members receive a 15% discount at our farmers market stand.
Can I upgrade from a Half Share to a Full Share?
Yes. To do so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I change delivery sites once I register?
Yes, you may change delivery sites any time during season, simply email us at email@example.com to change your location.
What if CSA has begun, can I still join?
Unless we are on a waitlist, normally you are able to join at any time throughout the season and the share prices are prorated as season goes on. We are currently selling shares for the 2015-16 season.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept online credit card payments using Paypal or eCheck payment.
Do you have an installment plan option?
Yes, we do offer an installment plan for payment.
Do you offer a gift certificate option?
Yes, CSA memberships are an excellent choice for anniversary, wedding, Christmas gift, etc. Please contact us by phone or e-mail if you are interested.
