csa frequently asked questions

 

have a question?

 

How large is a family share?

A family share is about 1/2 bushel worth of food. This includes meat and will vary week to week as our harvests vary. A Full Share will feed a family of 4 or 2 people who mostly eat at home. This is a lot of food, so you have been forewarned! If this sounds like too much food for you, we do offer a Single Share option, which is the same amount of meat per week but half of the veggies - about 1/4 bushel per week.

When and where do i Pick up my share?

We currently host CSA pick up at our farm, Under A Tin Roof Farm. Members can pick up on Wednesdays during open hours from 10AM to 5PM. If this time does not work for you, please let us know and we will try to accommodate. We are hoping to have scheduled pick up locations in the surrounding cities next year!

How long is the season?

We currently offer two CSA seasons: summer and fall. Our summer season is 18 weeks (June - October) and our fall season is 5 weeks (October - November). Our seasons can depend entirely upon the weather, so please keep an eye out for any date announcements and act accordingly with our season.

how much is a share? 

Family shares start at $290 for 5 weeks and can jump up to $855 for 18 weeks. This is calculated to come out at around $48 of organic food per week. We also offer add-ons like beef or flowers, which would increase your total.

Can I pay for my share in installments?

At this time, we ask that you pay up front to ensure your spot in the program. Spots go quickly, so please let us know if you need some financial help. We understand and want everyone to have access to good food! 

can I bring my family with to pick up?

Yes! We encourage any family members or friends to accompany you when you pick up your food.

What about my dog?

Nope! Please do not bring your dog or any other pets with you when you pick up at the farm. We have free range animals walking around which may cause a scurry.

I have to miss a week of pick-up. what do I do?

We totally understand that complications arise or that your family will be going on vacation! If you absolutely cannot pick up your food yourself, please send a friend or family member to enjoy the produce in your place. If you cannot send anyone, we will keep your meat in the freezer for when you get back. Fruits/vegetables that cannot be saved will be donated to a local food bank.

can I pick up at any of the listed CSA locations during the season?

No. When you sign up for our CSA program, you will have the option to choose which location you want to pick up your share at. This is the only place that you can pick up throughout the season so make sure that it works for you every week! This is to make sure we have everyone’s food in the correct place.
