Will CSA Shares be Home Delivered in 2020?

Yes, we are home delivering all CSA shares to the following areas:

Peoria and Surrounding Area

Naperville – Western Suburbs Area


What Day is Home Delivery?

Each delivery area (Peoria and Naperville – Western Suburbs) receives a delivery every other Thursday from June – November.    If you sign up for a full season vegetable and egg, you receive a delivery every other Thursday June – November.   Meat Shares are delivered once every 4 weeks or every other delivery date.

Our CSA is flexible offering you the ability to cancel a delivery ahead of time and make up on another CSA delivery date.  You do not have to forfeit your shares because you have a vacation planned.

We also offer Custom CSA Shares allowing you to choose the delivery weeks for Vegetables and Eggs or the delivery month for a Meat Share.


What is a Custom Share?

Custom Vegetable and Egg Shares let you choose the delivery weeks.   Weeks are chosen from the 2020 delivery dates for your area.

2020 Custom Vegetable or Egg Share Sign Up by Mail Only using the following two forms:

2020 CSA Sign Up Form

2020 Custom Schedule Sheet – delivery dates for 2020

Custom Meat Shares let you choose the delivery month.  Use our Online Sign Up OR the 2020 CSA Sign Up Form to reserve a custom meat share.

Will I Receive a Reminder about the CSA Delivery?

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


Do I Have to Be Home for the Delivery?

No, you do not have to be home but PLEASE LEAVE A COOLER or COOLER BAG 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 Time Will I Receive My Delivery?

Delivery time can 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 or cooler bag large enough to receive your order.


What if I Have to Miss a CSA Delivery?

Contact us by email, phone or text to Anita (309-231-9290) to cancel your delivery for the week(s) you will be gone.
Important:  Make sure you receive a confirmation for your cancellation.
You can make up the missed food in another CSA delivery week by requesting a make up.  Just contact us with the date you want the delivery and make sure you receive a confirmation back from us.   Ideally, give us 24 hours notice for a make up delivery.


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.
