CSA Starts This Week

   CSA 2017 is ready to launch! Please remember that deliveries come to different zip codes on different days. The full delivery list is on our blog; the group site list is repeated below.

Group Site Members: 
Please remember that you must pick up your box on delivery day. All boxes contain perishable items that spoil easily, so any boxes that are not claimed within the designated pick-up window will be donated. Your host is not permitted to hold your box overnight.

Home Delivery Members:
If you won't be home when your box arrives, please provide a cooler for it, with ice packs. An hour in the heat will ruin many perishable items.

Farm Pick-up Members:
We'll have boxes available the first week; after that, we ask that you bring those boxes or some other container with you to reuse every week. 

All Members:
If you know in advance that you're going to miss your pick-up day, please log into your account as soon as possible and schedule a vacation hold. If unforeseen circumstances interfere with your pick-up, please email csa@greatcountryfarms.com or call 540-554-0247 as soon as you realize the problem.

Please remember to check in and get a wrist band before getting on the you-pick wagon, and please remember to sign out your weekly bonus.

Week 1 Shares Include: 1 bundle of asparagus, 1 bundle of spring onions, 1 bag of lettuce, 1 bag of arugula, 1 box of cherries, 1 basil plant.

Pick-your-own bonus:1 quart sweet cherries
