This is my first CSA Pick Up…What do I do?
At the first CSA pick up, stop by the CSA Pick Up Table. The CSA Store Leader will get your CSA Membership Card, and give it to you. You can continue to shop and when you check out, give the cashier the card. After you pay for the weekly CSA bag, return to the CSA Pick Up table with your receipt. The CSA Leader will have your CSA bags ready for pick up. Return your CSA Membership Card to the CSA Leader.For the rest of the CSA season, you can drop off your tote bags at the CSA Pick Up table, get your card and then return with your payment receipt to pick up your CSA bags.
 
How to Use the Trading Table
The trading table is designed for two purposes:

  1. To allow customers with special dietary needs (vegetarian, vegan, lactose intolerant, etc) to trade items they cannot eat for items they can eat and
  2. To allow customers to trade items from their current CSA pickup that they do not want for other items that they might want. The trading table will be set up with items that can be traded and have the trading value listed beside the items. The CSA customers will manager the trading table for themselves. You should leave what you do not want and pick up the equivalent in trading value items you want. The trading table will start out with a few of each item that is in the bag this week plus additional items determined by the store. There will not be an unlimited supply of fresh meat items on the table. We cannot give rain checks on trading table items. If we run out of some items, those items will unavailable for trade until some other CSA customer trades one back in. We encourage you to try new items in your CSA bag. Our goal is to support all growers in the CSA.

The purpose of a CSA is to share in the harvest of the land — whatever that harvest might be. That helps all the farmers and producers we do business with be a success. Many times there will be unusual items in your CSA. We encourage you to experiment and expand your food choices. At least give everything a try once. The weekly newsletter will offer you ways to prepare and handle each item correctly, recipes and proper storage techniques to make your experience with the new food item a success!

Can’t Pick Up My CSA This Week?
What am I gonna’ do? We know that your busy lifestyles present you with challenges from time to time. So if you run into this situation, we have two solutions for you.

  1. Consider donating your bag to charity. Each of our stores has selected a local charity to take the bags that you cannot pick up. If you would like to do this, simply come in and pay for your bag and let us know to donate it to charity. We will give you a receipt for your taxes and the selected charity will get some wonderful local foods to enjoy in their kitchen or food assistance plan and share with those less fortunate.
  2. Give us a call in advance and let us know that you will not be able to come in and pick up your merchandise. Ideally, we would like to have this information 48 hours in advance so we do not order merchandise to fill your bag. But in any event, please do not be a “no show” without calling us. This causes us to have excess merchandise that we are not always able to sell through before it goes bad.
Will I get credit toward my bread or corn club when I get it in my CSA bag?
The CSA itself is a club and all items are offered with a discount, so items that are in the CSA bag will not count toward other clubs (such as bread or corn club).
