FAQ

  • How does it work?
    Each week during the spring and summer growing season members receive a box of fresh, handpicked produce. (Winter share delivery is every other week.)The content of the box changes as the season changes. We use only sustainable and organic practices on our farm.

  • How will I get my vegetables?
    We deliver your vegetables to one of several "drop sites", where you pick it up. We have drop sites in Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, North Liberty and Solon.

    You can also pick up at the farm, if you live nearby.

  • How many people will a share feed?
    Our vegetable share provides enough vegetables for two vegetable loving adults or a family of four with small children.

    Families needing more than one vegetable share please contact Susan at 319-929-5032 to discuss discount arrangements.

     

  • What if I go on vacation?
    If you will be unable to pick up your vegetables, you can ask a friend or a neighbor to pick it up for you. Any vegetables that remain at the drop site after the designated pick-up time will be distributed via various networks within the community including Ecumenical Towers, Table-to-Table, Local Foods Connection, food pantries and neighborhood centers in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids.

  • I'm not familiar with some of the vegetables you grow; how will I know what to do with them?
    Our weekly newsletter includes a list each week’s vegetables, preparation tips and recipes and there is always someone at your dropsite, farmers and/or CSA members who can answer your questions.
