Pick ups at the Gibbet Hill Farm bull barn on Thursdays from 2pm-6pm


Amounts available for each crop will be predetermined by our farmer.  Some crops may be limited, and others abundant, depending on the week and weather. There will also be weeks in which shareholders can round out their weekly share with an array of pick your own herbs..

A CSA is entering into a deal with the farmer that they will weather the storm of the season, this means if the farm thrives the share will thrive, if certain crops fail then the shareholders might feel that as well.  At Gibbet Hill Farm we grow the highest quality seasonal produce for the Webber Restaurant Group restaurants and we are pleased to extend our produce to the community to join us as CSA members.  We focus on growing beautiful, high quality produce, that is nutrient dense, “beyond organic” (free of all conventional pesticides/herbicides).  Between us, the farm staff has over 15 years of experience growing organic vegetables.

PLEASE SEE FAQs below!

FAQs

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE WHAT’S IN MY SHARE?

Becoming a CSA shareholder is an adventure!  We won’t know exactly what will be in your share until the day we are harvesting.  

NEW THIS YEAR: OFFER BOX!

If there are items in your CSA share that you cannot eat or do not particularly like, we will provide an “Offer Box” at the CSA pick-up location. You can add that item to the box for other members who might be interested in additional portions of that product. Please remember to peruse the Offer Box for tasty veggies to take, whether you have added some or not. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM LATE OR MISS PICKING UP MY SHARE
If you know you can’t come to pick up, we would be grateful if you could notify us. If you are late picking up, the share will stay in the distribution area overnight.  If the farm team arrives the next morning, and there are any shares that haven’t been picked up, we will donate the share to a family in need. 

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PYO HERBS?

Pick your own herbs include dill, basil, cilantro, and parsley.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO PICK UP?

Your share will be packed into a wax box for you to pick up the first week.  We ask that you return the box each week and we’ll have a second box with your share in it, and we will rotate your boxes each week. 

CAN SOMEONE ELSE PICK UP MY SHARE?

Yes. We don’t need to know that someone else will pick up your share! If they are not familiar with our CSA, please ask them to read these Frequently Asked Questions.

AS A COURTESY:

We will follow all state mandated safety guidelines for out distribution area.  We ask that only one shareholder at a time be in the distribution area. Please allow anyone who arrives before you to leave the distribution area before entering. 

Please no dogs on the farm.
