Vegetable FAQ’s

When are Vegetable Shares Delivered?

 

Our CSA Season is June – November.  We offer every other week delivery to the Naperville and Peoria areas.

You can also choose your delivery weeks by choosing the Custom Share option.

 

What if I Have to Miss a Delivery?

 

If you need to skip a delivery, please notify us by email with date(s) you want to skip.   Be sure you get a confirmation back from the farm.

Cancelled deliveries can be made up in another delivery week by emailing and requesting a make up delivery.  You do not forfeit your food if you cancelled and the food was not delivered.

 

What Should I Expect in a Vegetable Share?

 

You should expect 6-8 items in each vegetable box.   We harvest the vegetables as they come in season.   Size of each vegetable serving will be similar to items you see at the farmer’s market – bunch of beets or 1/2 lb lettuce, for example.   Quantities are not for canning – they are fresh eating.

 

 

What is the Weight of Each Vegetable Share?

 

We do not quote a weight on the vegetable boxes because there is so much variation throughout the season.  Early June boxes are filled with spring greens and September boxes have tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, etc.   We will provide 6-8 items with varying weights throughout the season.

 

How Many People will the Vegetable Box Feed?

 

Because each family is different in their eating habits – what vegetables are liked/disliked, how many times eating out, etc – it is difficult to predict how long and how many people each vegetable box will feed.

 


Can I Choose What Comes in My Vegetable Share?

 

No, we are unable to customize individual tastes for each vegetable box.  The idea behind the CSA is to make the best use of the variety of vegetables included with each delivery.
