FAQs

WHAT IF I CAN’T PICK UP?

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 member may not pick up more than one share per week even if the previous week’s share was not picked up. 

WHAT IS THE FLEX SHARE?

The flex share allows the member to choose ten Thursdays (our distribution day) over the twenty week season that they will pick up their share.  Dates need to be given to the farmers by May 1st, 2020. 

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PYO (‘pick your own’) CROPS?

Pick your own crops include; herbs (dill, basil, cilantro, parsley) and flowers (for flower share holders).  A few fun suprise crops might be included as well; like hot peppers, and husk cherries.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO PICK UP?

A mesh tote bag will be issued to each Gibbet Hill Farm CSA member, for members to use to pick up their share.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM LATE OR MISS PICKING UP MY SHARE WITHOUT NOTIFYING THE FARMERS?

If you can’t make it in time to pick-up your CSA Share, contact the farm, members will be given contact information for the farm team member who will be coordinating each week.  They may be able to keep it inside until the next day.  If they don’t hear from you before the pick-up time ends, shares will not be held. .  There are no refunds for missed pick-ups or forgotten shares.

CAN SOMEONE ELSE PICK UP MY SHARE?

Yes. We don’t need to know that someone else will pick up your share! Just make sure that your friend checks in with our distribution coordinator under your name. If they are not familiar with our CSA, please ask them to read these Frequently Asked Questions.

AS A COURTESY:

Most members require at least 15 minutes to collect their CSA share. Please allow yourself adequate time to gather your share items before the end of CSA hours. 

Please no dogs on the farm.
