Meat Share: At least 30 qt. cooler

Do I Need a Cold Packs in My Cooler?

Frozen cold packs are helpful for the eggs and vegetables during the hot months.   All meat and salmon are delivered frozen.
Please do not leave a bag of ice.  It melts and leaves a standing water in the bottom of the cooler.
Best Cooler Advice:
Leave your cooler in a shady place where it will not bake in the afternoon sun.  That is better than any ice pack!

Yes, you can use our Online Stores to add items to your delivery and they will be delivered with your CSA shares.

 

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.
