FAQ

Please NOTE: Due to Covid-19, there will be no swap box or mandatory workshift. Shares will be sorted into crates. 

What if I can’t get to distribution?
If you can’t make it to distribution during the allotted time, just arrange to send a friend, family member or neighbor to pick up your share(s). All they will need to do is supply your name and say they are picking up for you. We will NOT be able to hold on to shares for anyone after the distribution time is done. At the end of distribution any remaining food will be donated to a neighborhood food program.

What if I forget to bring a bag?
We will try to have some plastic or paper bags on hand that you can take with you, but we can’t guarantee it, so please remember to bring your re-usable bags and containers to transport your food home.

Broccoli! My favorite! I can have extras, right?
Sorry, no switching, no extras. The farm provides only enough of each item to cover each member’s share, so please make sure not to take more than the amount listed. However, there is a swap box, and you can use it to trade something in your share that you don’t like for something in the box that you like better. Put one in, take one out.

If there is something you absolutely cannot or will not eat, please keep in mind that you’re not obliged to take it. Instead, if you leave it, it will be donated to a neighborhood food program.

When is my work shift and what will I have to do?
Work shift schedules are prepared in the late Spring, just before the season starts. We take requests into account, but we need to have equal numbers on A and B weeks. Emails will go out prior to first distribution stating your workshift date. A reminder email will be sent to you a few days before your scheduled day to work.

On the day of your work shift please arrive at the distribution site at 7:15am. You should expect to stay until 10:00am. Tasks will involve (up to your degree of comfort ability) unloading the truck, setting up the tables and tent, greeting members, signing in members, restocking crates, etc. Please be sure to let us know if there is anything you are asked to do that you are not up for (for any reason) so we can make alternate arrangements.

What if I can’t make my work shift?
The work each member does for the CSA is essential to making the CSA run. If your schedule changes and you cannot do the work shift you signed up for, please contact other members or even a friend to arrange to have someone cover your shift. Please let us know who will be at distribution for you. If you cannot find someone, we will try to help arrange for someone to cover for you, but in the end it is your responsibility to find a replacement or exchange your workshift with another member. Please note that members who fail to do their work shift will be considered not in good standing and may not be allowed to sign up the following season.
