On-farm vs. delivered

On-Farm, Market-style CSA Pickup     The harvest barn is set up like a farmer’s market, with all the freshly picked vegetables on display. Members pick and pack their own shares. The most popular items and staple crops (think tomatoes, onions, potatoes, and lettuce) are divided equally among members, by weight or piece.  Other crops, such as greens, are available on a mix and match basis, meaning members can pick and choose between several different types to equal their allotted amount for that week.  A choice table allows members to choose 1 or 2 items, and leave those they do not eat. The more unusual items and those which tend to foster a love or hate relationship with eaters, such as beets, turnips, or Swiss chard, will most often be on the choice table, as well as fruiting crops which are either at the early or late stages of harvest, when only a small amount is ripe for picking. A trade table allows members to trade an item they do not want for another item.

 

BOXED SHARE Deliveries       Delivered CSA Shares feature all the staples and usual favorites, as indicated above, as well as a rotating selection of the more unusual or less common vegetables, which would be on the "choice table" for on-farm pickup. There is no extra charge for delivery of shares to specified pickup locations.

 

UPICK GARDEN      All members can visit the Upick garden to harvest their own berries, fresh flowers, herbs, peas, beans, cherry tomatoes, and more during open farm hours. Upick crops are included in the cost of a CSA share, and amounts are set according to share size. Delivered shares receive a small sampling of items from the Upick garden throughout the season, for example, 1 week of berries, 1 week of green beans, and 1-2 weeks of cherry, grape or paste tomatoes. Members can add a We-pick sampler share or an herb share to receive these items on a weekly basis in season.

Open Farm Hours: Tuesdays and Fridays, 8 am - 8 pm. Wednesdays and Saturdays, 8am - noon.

 

COOPERATIVE SHARES:  The Good Farm partners with other local farmers and producers to offer "extra shares" for both on-farm pickup and delivered shares. Coop shares include: gourmet bread, cheese, mushrooms, fruit, as well as pastured poultry and pork. See the "Cooperative Shares" for details about specific shares. CSA members picking up at the farm have the opportunity to purchase locally and sustainably raised products each week, including pastured meats and eggs, grass-fed and natural dairy, artisan bread, gourmet mushrooms, honey, and even Wild Alaskan Salmon from a local family.
