Summer Share starts this week!

Dear CSAers,

Sumer CSA share pickup starts this Wednesday and Friday. We are thrilled to see the farm fill up again with members!  Feeding our community is what makes all the hard work come alive. This spring has been chillier and the rain has set some crops back and sped others up - that is the nature of nature.  

Each week, you will pick up your share on your assigned day between 2pm-7pm.  In an effort to provide you with the freshest vegetables possible, we are harvesting the day of the share distribution, so please don't come early - we won't be ready for you!

  • If you purchased a stand alone Summer CSA share, your pickup day is Wednesday.
  • If you are a Super Share holder continuing from the spring CSA, your pickup day is still Friday.
  • Super Shares include flowers every other week - and pickups will begin for those a few Fridays from now (June 28th) and continue into the autumn. 

If you need to switch days for some reason please email is as soon as possible so we can organize the change in our harvest schedule.

We ask that you pick up your share only on your assigned day.  If you can not pick up your share on your CSA day, ask a neighbor or friend to pick it up for you.  We harvest each day for our counted orders and changes are not possible. 

Come to The Hickories every Wednesday/ Friday anytime between 2pm-7pm.  - 136 Lounsbury Road.  The Summer Share will end in September.

  • Feel free to stay and meet other CSAers, talk with your farmers, etc. - the farm is usually open for walkers during CSA hours, but this is weather dependent so check the signs.
  • Be sure you bring a bag to collect your share each week. As pick your own crops come in please feel free to bring back your pint container to reuse each week.
  • Check you name off the list when you get here.
  • As always, no dogs on the farm.
  • Everyone needs to be mindful of farm safety:
    • Fingers away from tractors and livestock
    • Feet on the designated paths
    • Fences can be electric, and they should not be climbed on.
    • Gates should never be opened unless you are with staff members.
    • A hand-washing sink with soap and water should you need it

You can expect an email midday on Wednesdays listing what is in your share and reminding you to come to pickup. 

See you at the farm!
