1. How do I sign up?
Look to the left and tap on "How To Sign Up For 2018". This will take you to a page
that includes a link where you can download the sign up sheet. Then print the form,
complete the form and send it with the payment to Peak Season CSA.
2. What produce will I receive in each bin?
Some of the past members have said "every week is like Christmas!" Each bin is a
surprise. You will receive a newsletter on Sunday evening that will let you know
what items will be in the upcoming week's bin. Mother Nature makes a big
difference with seasonal produce especially when it comes to ripening time. See
our Seasonal Produce Calendar to get a better sense of what to expect to see in
your bin during the 16 week season.
3. What happens when I go on vacation?
Let me know one week in advance and I will let you double up on bins during
another week. You will still receive 16 bins during the season. I know folks travel
during the summer months and often times have out-of-town guests at other times.
Also, you can always give your bin to a house sitter or neighbor to enjoy while you
are away. Just be sure to let them know when and where to pick up the bin.
4. What quantity can I expect in each bin?
We use a recyclable black plastic bin that stacks and nests and holds a little over a
1/2 bushel. Sometimes larger items are delivered outside of the bin, such as bags
of tomatoes, pumpkins, squash, sunflowers. A standard bin will provide for a couple
with 2 small children or a produce loving couple.
5. Do you sell 1/2 shares?
At this time we sell standard and small shares. If you would like to find
someone to partner with you, another option is splitting a standard share with that
person. I recommend taking turns with the pick up, so you end up with a full bin
every other week.
