We prepare all the boxes in the morning and put them out to the pick-up site at the times listed below. Be aware the box remains at the pick up site until the next morning if it is not picked up. • Morning boxes - out by 10AM • Afternoon boxes - out by 1PM • Sunset boxes - out by 3:00PM

Large and Small box
YOUR BOX • The pick-up site is not manned - we use the honor system. • The pick-up site is a tent with blue tables- small boxes are on one side and large boxes on the other. • Each box has a label – look for the label with your name (refer to 'Get to Know Your Label'). • If your box is not there, call us at the number listed on the white sign at the pick-up site. • 99.9% of the time there is a large white cooler(s) for items that need to be kept cold but always a sign on the cooler as what to take. Often small box subscribers will take a different amount than the large box subscribers – read all cooler signs. • You may bring your own bags to transfer your box contents into and leave the box OR return your box on your next pick-up (we reuse/recycle them). It is not necessary to unfold it (a great video on our website under Recycling Your Empty Boxes showing how to manipulate the boxes). • If something unexpected comes up and you will not be able to pick-up your box on your usual day, please call us! If someone is in the office, we will return your box to the cooler so you can pick-up your box the next day. Also, if you need to switch your pick-up from morning to afternoon, or visa versa, please let us know and we will handle your box accordingly.
EXTRAS • Sometimes we have an ‘Extras’ cooler from which you can purchase – please read the signs on ALL coolers. • There is a mailbox at the back of the pick-up site for ‘extras’ and/or your monthly payment (check or cash) – access slot on door of mailbox. • If you are paying for extras, put your cash/check in the mailbox. If you prefer to be invoiced, there is a paper/pencil container on the side of the mailbox – provide your name and items/quantities you bought. We will invoice you for the extras which will appear on your next monthly statement. • If you are paying cash for your monthly boxes, please be sure to include your name!!
Please LOOK but don't Pick! • While we hope you look at the crops and say hello to the crew, we ask you not to pick the veggies in the field. Even if it appears that we are finished with a crop, we may have sprayed it with an herbicide to kill the plants (so that diseases do not spread to our new crops), which means that the vegetables should not be consumed.
