Opening Your Box
When receiving your box you will notice that it comes in good condition. We ask that you help us keep it that way, so we may continue to use it many times this season.

Note that the top of your box has a crease. This crease is where you should begin to open the box.

Be careful and push back towards the crease of your box to open it. Try not to break the box in any way, as that will shorten its life span and increase our costs.

Open the box by pushing towards the crease until the tongue comes out of the L-shaped holes.

 Carefully open the remaining folds on the top of your box. 

Pull out the contents of your box by removing the entire bag. "Please reuse this bag as a trash bag in your bathroom or office after you are finished with it."

Place the bag of vegetables into your refrigerators crisper drawer for best storage.

Please leave your empty box at your doorstep the following week for our driver to pick up. "Please do not leave us any bags, rubber bands, clam shells or any packing material, just the box."

Not much to say except, "the busy season is upon us!" We are pushing hard to get everything planted for the fall, while harvesting for the summer and managing the business end. Everything seems to get blurry around now, so help us by signing up for the Winter CSA. 

We would really appreciate that everyone purchase their Winter Season CSA share now! This is the time of the year when we spend loads of money on labor and we appreciate your financial contributions more than ever. 

We must keep the money flowing in from the CSA, Farmers Markets, Restaurants and Wholesalers. We cannot afford any lulls in the cash flow...
