FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What are your pick up times? We offer two pick up window options.
- – Wednesday + Thursday 9am-5pm
- – Friday 9am-5pm + Saturday 9am-11am
What kind of fruit/vegetable ratios can I expect? We are first and foremost a farm that grows tree fruit. With that being said, over the past 6 years our vegetable production has grown. We strive to give you a box that is pretty equal in fruits and veggies – but some weeks may be heavier on the fruit and others may be heavier on the veggies. It really all depends where we are with our harvests.
What are your growing practices? We practice Integrated pest management; also known as IPM. IPM is a strategy of pest control that aims to manage pest populations with the least amount of environmental impact. IPM uses several techniques such as monitoring, crop rotation, and growing pest resistant crops to help reduce the use of pesticides.
Can I split a share with another person/family? Absolutely! We ask that you either split your share after picking it up from our store or rotate your pick ups. Please be sure to provide us with both email addresses, so you are both getting our weekly share email.
