Can’t Make Distribution? Please Let Us Know

RedPhoneWe’d like to take a moment to thank you all for joining us this season. Things in the field are looking awesome, and it’s been great meeting and feeding all of you. We hope you are enjoying all of your food! We welcome your feedback! It’s time for us to remind you about some important details that, when attended to, help keep everything running smoothly.  Please take the time and read the following very important information:

Distribution Times: To keep administrative costs at a minimum, we must adhere to our delivery schedule for shares. Therefore we need all members to fit time into your schedules and pick up during the designated distribution hours. Please find a list of distribution times and contact information below.

Advance Notice for Changes to Pick-Up: We are always willing to accommodate your needs as long as we have sufficient time to alter our harvest. To ensure that we have enough food for everyone every week, we require 48 hours notice if you are unable to pick up your share. If you can not notify us 48 hours in advance of your scheduled pick up, we cannot guarantee that there will be a share available for you.

Volunteer Time: Our CSA members have logged almost 300 hours of volunteer time so far this season and have helped us plant a half ton of potatoes, weed your fields, pick berries, and help all of you get your share at distribution. If you have yet to schedule your volunteer time, please take a moment to do so now. On farm volunteering can be scheduled through Megan by e-mail. megan@uppermeadowsfarm.com. Scheduling volunteer hours at your distribution can be completed through the links below.

We custom harvest for each of you at every distribution.  Please keep in mind that communicating your needs in advance helps us all have a more abundant season!

  1. […] Accepting a limited number of NEW members mid-season provides us with the additional resources (more labor, equipment upgrades, and more volunteer hands) to be even more aggressive about mid-season planting and cultivating. Fall is already looking generously abundant. Mid-season shares will ensure even more variety and quantity in addition to enriching our community. How much does a share cost? How long will it run? • Our mid-season share runs 11 weeks starting the week of August 17, 2009. • 11-week family share (approx 2/3 of small family’s weekly veggies) for $450.00 • 11-week individual share (approx 2/3 of veggies for 1 or 2 people) for $325.00 When & Where Do I Get My Food? • Shares can be picked up weekly at our established distribution days/locations in Montague, Flanders, Sparta, Verona, and Jersey City , NJ or in Brooklyn or Manhattan, New York. Distribution details can be found here. […]

  2. […] We are asking all of our members who have yet to volunteer to take a look at their calendars for the rest of the season and work in some time to volunteer at distribution or here on farm. You can find details on volunteering in this previous blog post. […]
