A CSA Box is a box filled with local
(100% Blue Sky Organic Farms grown), organic, produce that was harvested the
day before you receive it, not weeks beforehand and shipped long distances.
Why should I sign up for a Blue Sky
A CSA box subscription provides you
with locally grown, freshly harvested, organic produce that is better for you,
your family, and the community. It saves you time at the grocery store, and
keeps your fridge stocked with fresh veggies so you can keep your health on
How does the CSA Box subscription
After signing-up, you receive a box
of fresh veggies weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
How do I receive my box?
We have pick up locations
throughout The Valley, including at our Farm Store and at the local Farmers
Markets we attend. When you sign up for a subscription you will select the
location that you wish to pick up your box. Please keep in mind that you are
responsible for picking up your CSA Box or for making alternative arrangements
to have your CSA Box picked up.
What if I want more produce than I
have in my CSA Box?
All CSA Box members receive 10% off
all produce purchases in our Farm Store and at our Farmers Markets. This way, members
who eat a lot of veggies can still get a deal on the extra items they may need.
You may also add on to your boxes through the online store, you may add eggs,
honey, or other offerings from the farm.
Can I place my CSA
Box on hold?
Yes, you can place your account
on hold for those times when you will not be able to pick up your box. You will
need to log into your account and place your box on hold. The farm will
not be responsible for doing this for the customers. You can only add one hold at a time.
What happens if I do not pick up my CSA
Box on time?
That depends. If your pick up
location is the Farm Store, all unclaimed boxes will be donated to St. Mary’s
Food Bank, or any other food bank, church, or charitable organization we are
working with at that time. If your pick up location is a third party
business, please understand that they are not responsible for storing your CSA
Box. Most third party locations will toss unclaimed CSA Boxes. Some
may hold onto your CSA Box past the delivery date, but please note that we are not
responsible for their storage conditions and your produce may not be
stored properly, resulting in less-than-stellar veggies. There are no
refunds, credits, or exchanges for unclaimed CSA Boxes.
What if I want to cancel my
Please call the office and ask for
the CSA coordinator (623.266.4031) or you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There are no refunds, credits, or
exchanges for unclaimed CSA Boxes. A $25 cancellation fee will be assessed.
In addition to the Farm Box, we offer a Customized Farm Share. Produce items will be available within the customized farm share to order exactly what you want with no surprises. Please make sure that you place your order before the deadline.
If you have a Tuesday delivery, all orders must be placed by Saturday at midnight of the week prior (i.e. if the delivery is for 9/19/17, orders must be placed by 9/16/17).
you have a Friday delivery, all orders must be placed by Tuesday at
midnight of the week prior (i.e. if the delivery is for 9/22/17, orders
must be placed by 9/19/17).
you have a Saturday delivery, all orders must be placed by Wednesday at
midnight of the week prior (i.e. if the delivery is for 9/23/17, orders
must be placed by 9/20/17).
We only post custom available box
contents one week at a time (as it is impossible to forecast any further
than that with the weather). If you are not getting these
emails, please check your spam folder (and adjust your spam settings
Customize your box. Next you will
come to a page that will have the same items with up and down arrows and you
can change the numbers. Make sure to SAVE CHANGES.
You can also click “reset to defaults” to reset the box to the original
contents. We want to be as flexible as possible with our members, however
Mother Nature can be fickle at times and nothing is certain in farming.
Therefore it is possible that an item will not be ready even though it was
predicted to be ready in the customization list. So far this has only
happened a few times. We try very hard to make an accurate forecast, but
if it turns out that an item is not ready on your box delivery day, we reserve
the right to switch for another item and replace it at the last minute.
We will not credit the original item but we will provide an item of similarity
or value. Thank you for understanding. That being said, the
"add-on" items from the store are inventoried and will be
guaranteed. In the event that "add-on" items are unavailable to
ship, we will notify you when we can fulfill the order and you can decide at
that time whether you want the order placed or credited.
