Will I Receive a Reminder about the CSA Delivery?

Yes, delivery reminders are emailed Wednesday afternoon to those receiving a delivery the following day.

 

What Time Will I Receive My Delivery?

Delivery time will most likely change with each delivery.  It depends on how many deliveries we have that particular Thursday and where they are located.   The most important thing is to leave a cooler large enough to receive your order.

 

Do I Have to Be Home for the Delivery?

No, you do not have to be home but PLEASE LEAVE A COOLER for ALL CSA SHARES.

If you have a garage refrigerator or other specifics, we are happy to place the food where it will keep best until you arrive home.

** During the warm months, leave your cooler in an area where it will not receive afternoon sun.  
** Icies are preferred over a bag of ice.  Ice melts leaving food in a pool of water. 
** During the cold months, please continue to leave a cooler to protect your food from the cold.

 

What if I Have to Miss a CSA Delivery?

Contact us to cancel your delivery for the week you will be gone.
Make sure you receive a confirmation for your cancellation.

You can make up the missed food in another delivery week.  Any of this communication can be done through email, text or phone.

 

What Size Cooler Do I Need?

Vegetable Share: At least 32 qt. cooler
Egg Share: At least 3 qt. cooler per dozen eggs
Meat Share: At least 30 qt. cooler
Vegetable and Egg Combination: At least 35 qt. cooler
Meat, Vegetable, Egg Combination:  At least 65 qt. cooler

 

Do I Need Ice or Cold Packs in My Cooler?

Frozen cold packs would be helpful for the eggs and vegetables.  We discourage a bag of ice as it melts and may leave your food (think about the eggs) possibly in standing water.
All Meat and Salmon are delivered frozen.

 

Can I Purchase Other Items for Home Delivery

Yes, you can use our Online Stores to add items to your delivery including a Vegetable Box, Eggs, Meat, Salmon and more.

 

Can I Purchase Other Items if I Don’t Have a CSA Delivery?

Yes!  If you are not receiving a CSA delivery that particular week, we just ask you to meet the minimum order which is currently $25.
