CSA Frequently Asked Questions
 
How much produce will be in my CSA?
The produce in your CSA box each week depends on the “share” that you choose. Typically, our half share (family of 2-3) can feed 2 adults and 2 small children. We recommend our full share (family of 4-5) for families with more children or older children (that like vegetables!).

Can I choose what produce goes into my box?
No. The produce that comes in your share each week depends on what we have in season at that particular time. Some things like cucumbers, squash, and zucchini will remain the same but others like strawberries, okra, green beans, and blackberries will switch as we progress in the season.

I don’t like a certain produce; can I exchange it?
CSA shares are set each week and exchanges are not allowed. Sorry!
 
Can I send a friend/family member to pick up my box?
Of course! If you decide you cannot pick up on a particular date, your friends/family members are more than welcome to pick up your share. Just remember that they will request the share under YOUR last name!
 
What happens when I go on vacation?
You are allotted TWO vacation holds. For these designated vacation holds, we will hold back your box for the week of your vacation and allow you to pick up 2 boxes any week of your choice. Only TWO vacation holds are permitted per season. Therefore, any other time you cannot pick up your share you can choose one of two options:
 
1) Have a family member/friend pick up your share.
2) Donate your share to the Pomaria Food Bank.
 
If you plan to use a vacation hold, please give at AT LEAST one week notice so that we can plan accordingly. Failure to let us know one week ahead of time will result in the loss of your box.
 
I forgot to pick up my box on Wednesday; can I get a new one?
CSA boxes are held until Thursday at 10:00 am. After this time, they will be given to the Pomaria Food Bank and new boxes cannot be made.
 
Will the same thing be in my box each week?
Not always! You will more than likely see tomatoes, zucchini, and squash each week. But things like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, green beans, okra, and much more will switch throughout the season.
 
Can I come to pick up my box early/on a different day?
Pick up time is every Wednesday from 8:00am – 6:00 pm. Due to the high volume of participants we have, we cannot allow early pick-up. We hold boxes until Thursday morning at 10:00 am, so you may pick up your box on Wednesday or first thing Thursday morning.
 
How long does the CSA Program last?
Our CSA Program lasts 10 weeks. The 10 weeks that we choose are our “peak” weeks during the summer. During these 10 weeks we expect to be harvesting the majority of our produce.  
 
When does the CSA Program start? When does it end?
The CSA Program (2019) starts Wednesday, May 22nd and ends Wednesday, July 24th.  
 
I missed last week (without notification), can I just have two this week?
Unfortunately, without notification, we cannot allow you to have two boxes. This means we would be taking away a box from someone else!
