Sunscape Farms 2020 CSA FAQ

Thanks for your interest in our 2020 CSA! Please refer to the FAQ's below and if you have any further questions, please contact us at courtney@sunscapefarms.com.

When does the CSA start, and how many weeks is it?

The 2020 CSA season will likely start the week of June 8th or June 15th, depending on when the strawberries are ready to pick! Warm and sunny weather brings an earlier start date, whereas colder and cloudier weather pushes the date later. If you signed up already, you will recieve advance notice of the first pickup day via email. 

 

The CSA will be 18 weeks long, and you are guaranteed 15-20% more produce than you paid for, according to our farm market pricing. 

Will there be both Fruits and Vegetables in the CSA?

Over the course of the season, the produce you receive will be approximately 30-35% fruit and the rest vegetables. There is a great mix of each and you will enjoy the excellent variety!

Can I Split My Full Share with another Family?

  • Yes, if you've made an informed decision to do so, both families will receive a member card and will be authorized to pick up. 
  • Please keep in mind that the Full Share will come in one box. Members are expected to pick up the box and split it with their sharing member on their own (we have a drive-through pickup that needs to keep moving).
  • The Full Share rarely splits evenly. This is because it was designed for a single large family who didn’t necessarily want twice as much of each item as the Half Share, but needed more produce overall. Compared to the Half Share, there are increased amounts of some items, same amounts of other items, and some additional items (the half share receives these items in the following weeks, too, so they don't miss out).
  • Both share types have the same value guarantee, 15-20% more produce than you pay for over the course of the season, according to our farm market pricing.
  • If you prefer, you could purchase two half shares to guarantee a fair split and that you’d receive the same varieties. 

How do I sign up for a Sunscape CSA share?

We are SOLD OUT for the 2020 Season. Join our waiting list here.

 Shares can be split between up to two families, each recieving a membership card. Please note that the sharing families will receive one box and will have the responsibility of splitting the contents of the box.  Sharing members can take turns picking up. 

Where are the CSA pickup locations?

On your online or paper application, you choose which of the following locations is closest to you:

Which days are pickup days?

On your online or paper application, you'll choose a particular pickup day on which you will come to your chosen pickup location for your box. Some pickup days sell out.
 

  • Pickup day options at Creek St are Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays from 12pm - 7pm.
     
  • Pickup day options at Maiden Ln are Tuesdays or Wednesdays, from 122pm -7pm. 


If you need to change your pick-up day, you can contact us ahead of time at courtney@sunscapefarms.com.

What if I can't pick up my box?

If you are not able to pick up your box, you can choose to have a friend or family member pick it up for you. They will only need your full name to pick up your box and will need to sign for your box in your place. 

The other option is to donate your box to a needy family. Sunscape Farms supports local charities and food pantries and if you contact us ahead of time, we will find a family to whom we'll donate your box. 

Should I return my empty box?

We will provide you with a collapse-able box. Please return it so we can sanitize it and reuse it! Thanks for helping us take care of the Earth!

Will I know what will be in this week's share ahead of time?

Yes! For your planning convenience, we send out a weekly CSA newsletter via email. The newsletter will list what you should expect to see in your box that week along with some recipe suggestions focused on the produce in that week's box!

Allergies?

We allow up to 2 item exchanges per week, as a last resort for those with allergies or who absolutely can't use or give away a certain item. A staff member will help you exchange the item for one of equal value from our farm market. 

Bonus!

Remember, each half or full share CSA Member will receive a CSA Member Card that gives them 10% off additional purchases at the Creek St. and Maiden Ln farm markets for the ENTIRE season! That includes fall decor and Christmas trees that we offer after the CSA ends!
