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.

 

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 out for your order.

Due to the travel time from farm to the suburbs, most deliveries will take place no earlier than 12 noon and may go as late as 8 p.m.

You can always contact Anita at 309-231-9290 to check on your delivery.   TEXTING is best on delivery day!!

 

What if I Have to Miss a CSA Delivery?

Please notify us at broadbranchfarm@gmail.com or text 309-231-9290 to cancel your delivery.  Make sure you receive a confirmation back from us! 

If you don’t hear back, please try again!

Cancellations should be made by end of day Tuesday before your delivery day.

A make up delivery can be requested for another scheduled delivery date to your area.

 

What Size Cooler Do I Need?

Vegetable Share: Cooler should be as least 15″ L, 11″ W, 10″ H, narrow coolers do not work well

 

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 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 use a bag of ice.  It melts and leaves standing water in the bottom of the cooler where our drivers need to leave food.  Cardboard egg cartons don’t stand up well to water.

 

Best Cooler Advice – Make it Shady:
Leave your cooler in a shady place where it will not bake in the afternoon sun.   Coolers not only keeps things cold, they can keep heat in as well.  If you don’t have the shade option, leave a few ice packs to keep your cooler the right temperature.   Thank you for your efforts!

 

Can I Purchase Other Items for Home Delivery

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.
