CSA Distribution/Pick Up Schedule for 2018 (Dates May Change)
Pickups are open house style. You can come anytime during your pickup hours. As your farmers, we harvest your food all day, then we set it out in a buffet style setting, like your own personal farmers market. We mark items on a board that shows the amount we would like you to take. Some weeks we have more of certain items and some weeks we have items that are limited. Once your basket is full, and you collected all the weekly items you are done! We do it all over again the following week.
2018 CSA distribution Schedule:
Every Wednesdays 3-Dusk. March 21 - December 12.
**Members also share the risks of farming, including poor harvests due to unfavorable weather or pests. This is an important point: Quantities and items in baskets of goods cannot be guaranteed. The shareholder, like the farmer, is accepting some of the risks inherent in farming. By direct sales to community members, who have provided the farmer with working capital in advance, growers receive better prices for their crops, gain some financial security, and are relieved of much of the burden of marketing. If members do not follow the guidelines and rules; we reserve the right to refuse service.
