How do I choose a share size?
Do I get to choose which vegetables I want?
How does the point system work?
How many points am I allowed?
What if I want more produce than what I get in my share?
What happens if I miss a week? Will I lose my vegetables for the week?
How long does the season run? What days do I pick-up and when?
If I arrive later in the day, will I still have as many options?
What if I’m running late?
Do you offer any fruit?
Is there anything else you offer in addition to vegetables?
Can you purchase the extras as an add-on to the CSA?
