METRO BOSTON CSA BOX SHARE FAQ
What can I expect in each share?
Typically 6-10 items in the box.
Items available are strongly dependent on the weather each year. A hot, dry spring could result in less lettuce or spinach, but more tomatoes earlier than usual, for example. We grow over 60 varieties of vegetables and work hard to make sure you get a good variety of each in your share, from specialty crops like herbs and heirloom vegetables to farm favorites such as tomatoes, onions, and potatoes.
What if I am going to miss a CSA pick-up?
Because we are a small organization, we are not able to reschedule your CSA pick-up to a different time or place. We encourage you to plan to have a friend or neighbor pick your share up in your place if you are unable to do so. If you are unable to organize someone to get your share, we will donate the produce to a local food pantry.
For Metro Boston box shareholders: You will be picking up from a site host from 4-8 p.m. (unless otherwise specified). A site host manages each CSA box pick-up site. The site host may be able to provide some flexibility in picking up your share if contacted beforehand. However, please be aware that each site host is under no obligation to hold the share beyond the listed time for pick-up.
