Drop Points

 

  

When you sign up for a CSA share, you choose the Drop Point location where your box will be delivered each week. The locations depend on where the greatest concentration of members live or work.

Don’t see a Drop Point near you? Give us a call and we can work together to get our fresh produce to you and your friends and neighbors.

Interested in hosting or know of a public location that might work? Call or email us to discuss. Nice discounts apply for hosts!

Interested in establishing a new PRIVATE DROP POINT (i.e., employees ONLY) at your business? Contact us! A minimum of 10 member sign-ups required.

To learn how delivery works and what the Drop Point procedures are, scroll down to the bottom of this page.

How Delivery Works...

We do our very best to ensure that your produce arrives to you fresh and in a timely manner.  Having said that, we ask that you be flexible and understand that there is a window that we are aiming towards to get the delivery to the drop points, homes and places of work. For some, it is late morning. For others, it can be early afternoon, late afternoon, or evening. On delivery day, we will send you an email when your box has arrived at your drop point.

Generally speaking, the drop points are at private residences who are also members. They have no additional information as to when the produce is being delivered and we ask that you respect their privacy. Please direct any questions or concerns to us either by phone, text or email.

Be sure to take only what you have ordered. This is all on the honor system.

Drop Point Procedure...

If you do not remember what size box you get, whether or not you get a fruit share, or whether or not you ordered cheese or meat a certain week, please consult the list at the drop point! A new list will be printed each week.

1. Pick up your CSA Box. Please take your bag of produce out of the box and leave the box at the drop point, or if you do take the box home, please bring it back the following week. The boxes are expensive and we want to re-use them!

2. Fruit Share. If you have signed up for a Fruit Share, please take the amount of fruit designated at the drop point. The fruit will be separate from the CSA box.

3. Eggs or Milk. If you have signed up for an Egg Share or Milk Share, please consult the list to verify what size and amount you should take.  Eggs and milk will be in the cooler. 

4. Cheese or Meat. If you ordered cheese or meat, please take what you ordered from the cooler. Your order will have a label with your name.

5. Check your name off the list. Please check your name off the list before you leave. If you are picking up for someone else, please double check the checklist with what you are taking to be sure you have the correct items.

6. Returning milk bottles? Don't forget to put your name and the number of bottles you are returning on the sign-up sheet. It's important to have this information so that all bottles are accounted for when they make it back to the barn.

7. Respect the host. Please remember that in order to respect the privacy of our hosts, boxes must be picked up within the correct timeframe. For most drop points, it is by 9pm delivery day. If you're not sure what the pickup time is, log in to your membership and click the "Memberships" tab. If your box is not picked up within the correct timeframe, it becomes the property of the host.

8. ENJOY!!!!!!!!
