We offer four pickup days at the farm, and CSA members are welcome to pick up the share on ANY of the four days. This is a new policy - we’ve moved to a flexible-day system. No need to let us know when you’re coming, or if you need to come a different day than your usual day - come any day to pick up! It’s still a weekly pickup, so you’re limited to once per week.
Pickup days & hours are:
Most shareholders require at least 15 minutes to “shop” for a CSA share. Please allow yourself adequate time to gather your share items before the end of CSA hours. Barn doors will be closed and vegetables will be put away promptly at closing time to allow sleepy farmers to spend more time with their families.
If you know in advance that you will not be able to pick up your share at anytime during a given week, you may arrange for a friend or family member to pick up your share in your place. A CSA shareholder may not pick up more than one share per week even if the previous week’s share was not picked up.
We will be open on all holidays that fall on distribution days (July 4th, Labor Day, Columbus Day).
In an effort to reduce costs and waste, this year we are providing all shareholders with a canvas Appleton bag for the season! Please bring this with you each time you come to pick up your share.
You may wish to bring scissors for cutting flowers and herbs, a water container to keep these fresh on hot days, and a basket or bucket for other pick-your-own crops. There are hoses here, to fill your flower containers and for drinking water. There is also a Port-a-Potty at the barn. Feel free to bring a picnic and friends, and spend time relaxing at the farm.
Dogs and other pets are not permitted at the CSA, to protect livestock and crop fields.
