About VeggieBox

VeggieBox is a local agriculture initiative based on the idea of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). A CSA is a partnership of mutual commitment between a farm and a community of supporters that provides a direct link between the production and consumption of food. Supporters cover a farm's yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of the season's harvest. CSA members make a commitment to support the farm throughout the season, and assume the costs, risks and bounty of growing food along with the farmer or grower.

Members help pay for product production costs, seeds, fertilizer, water, equipment maintenance, labor, etc. In return, the farm provides, to the best of its ability, a healthy supply of seasonal fresh produce or goods (in Grant Farms case cheese, mushrooms, fruit, eggs, and microgreens) throughout the growing season.

Becoming a member creates a responsible relationship between people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown and those who grow it. This mutually supportive relationship between local farmers, growers and community members helps create an economically stable farm operation in which members are assured the highest quality produce at a fair price.

In return, farmers and growers are guaranteed a reliable market for a diverse and seasonal selection of crops and food goods. CSA reflects an innovative and resourceful strategy to connect local farmers and producers with local consumers; develop a regional food supply and strong local economy; maintain a sense of community; encourage land stewardship; and honor the knowledge and experience of growers and producers working with small to medium farms and food producers.

VeggieBox FAQ?

How do I sign up?
You may sign up on our website, call us directly, or use the application form included with our brochures. Sign up here.
 
Is there a deadline for signing up?
No, but it is best to sign up early to get the best prices. We have discount periods in December, January and February.
 
How often do I receive a box of produce?
You will receive a box once a week during our 12-week harvest season, starting in July through September.
 
How long is the season?
The Summer season is 12 weeks long.
 
Am I able to choose what goes in my share box?
No. All our boxes are packed with vegetables available at their peak ripeness, based on the farmer's expertise. Every  share will receive a variety of vegetables, which will change throughout the season. You are welcome to take advantage of our trade box (this is a box at the pick-up site that serves as a trading place. Shareholders may leave items they do not especially care for in the box for others to pick up and then help themselves to items left by others. Keep in mind to share the items in the trade box).
 
What do I do if I am on vacation or am unable to pick up my box?
VeggieBox members may have a guest pick up their food while away or if unable to pick up their share box. Please let your host know in advance that a guest will retrieve your box. This is a great way to share some of the harvest with friends, family, or neighbors. When you do have a guest pick up your box, provide the pick-up instructions for them! This prevents confusion and miscommunications. If no one picks up your share the produce will be donated to a local food charity. If you are running late, please contact us.
 
What kinds of veggies will I get each week?
A variety of veggies from these categories will be included each week as they mature with the season.
 
    greens: ie- spinach, lettuce, kale
    root crops: ie- beets, carrots, onions, potatoes
    herbs: ie- basil, parsley, dill
    classics: ie- broccoli, eggplant, tomatoes, green beans, peppers
 
A separate and more complete list of the crops we will grow and the anticipated weeks of their availability will be sent prior to each weekly share.
 
Where will I pick up my box?
You will pick up your shares from a host site; we work with a variety of folks that volunteer their homes or businesses to be a spot where we can drop off shares for our members to conveniently retrieve. You will be notified at least 4-weeks prior to your first pick-up with information regarding the pickup location.
 
At what times will my box be available for pick-up?
Pick up days will usually be during the work week. Shares are available to be picked up from the host site usually from 3pm to 6pm, with some exceptions, which are listed during the application process. As a member, you will also have your host's contact information in the event of an emergency which prohibits you from picking up your shares during the set time.
 
What if I do not know how to use—or even recognize!—the vegetables in my box?
Not to worry! Each week shareholders receive a newsletter to help acquaint you with the produce and its culinary possibilities. Asking another shareholder "What is this?" is a terrific community builder! Look to our visual glossary on web site to find out what that delicious veggie in your box is.
 
Can I Pay in Installments?
Yes. Although we prefer to have payments in full as soon as possible (so we can cover our operating costs) we also understand that the CSA model doesn't always work with life's other money allocations. If you want to become a member and are interested in a payment plan, give us a call and we will arrange an installment plan.
 
All payment plans must can be paid off over the next 3 months. We charge a 5$ transaction fee per installment payment. We prefer to limit installments to 3, although we may make special considerations on a case by case basis. The payment plan requries a credit card; the card you sign up with will be consistently charged on the dates agreed upon. Please call the team to arrange a payment plan.
 
How Does a Working Share Discount Work?
A working share is for folks with limited cash but available time. In return for a $90 discount, you can help volunteer with our non-profit partner, WY Healthy Eating. The tasks can be anything from weeding and harvesting, to helping pack boxes. The work requirements are 12 hours of work during the season, with no less than two hours at a time. When joining, please be sure to choose the share titled "working share." In the event that you are unable to work the total 12 hours, we will charge your card the remaining balance at the end of the season, with plenty of notice. The working share is a great way for folks to get involved with their food and know how and where it comes from! If you have further questions, contact us.
 
How does sharing or splitting a box work?
For shareholders who may feel you would like to split a share, we welcome you to initiate splitting a box with friends, family or neighbors. We leave this responsibility to the shareholders and box mates. How you split the produce is your decision. Sharing a box requires extra care that your group picks up only one box each week. Please coordinate this amongst yourselves in advance.
 
Should I let the farm know if I decide to share a box?
Yes. We keep track of those who share a box and include all box mates in correspondence, providing newsletters, and email updates. You can send us the information here.
 
Do you offer meat?
We are currently working to partner with a local, sustainable ranch to provide beef, pork, chicken, and turkey.  Please show your interest below.
