how long to pick up
How long do I have to pick up my share at the drop site? Can I send a family or friend to pick-up?
We know that many of you lead busy lives and thus we like to structure our CSA to give you flexibility and help make the CSA process convenient and manageable. Most every site, with the exception of the Oregon Department of Agriculture site, has a 24 hour pick up window which lasts from the time the box is dropped to the same time a day later. For example: If your drop time is on Wednesday at 4:00 pm, your share will be untouched until Thursday at 4:00 pm.
If you communicate with your drop site coordinator that you need to pick up your share after this time, it will remain for you, but we discourage making this a habit.
Family or friends retrieving your share is sometimes the best option. We only ask that they bring a reusable bag to pick up the produce and that you explain the pick up procedure to them before hand, including which bin to take produce from.
