- Pick-up times and location:
We have two pick-up locations. You must select one designated pick-up day/location that remains in effect during the length of the agreement. See the application for more details concerning vacations, etc. We encourage you to coordinate pick-ups with friends to help save time and gas. Choices are:
- Tuesday through Saturday, from 12:00pm-5pm at Miller Farms Market located at 12101 Orange Plank Rd, Locust Grove, VA 22508.
- Wednesday from 3pm-5pm at Spotsylvania Farm Bureau office located near the Giant on Courthouse Road 10470 Georgetown Dr, Spotsylvania 22553.
Once a week, any day between Tuesday through Saturday, from 10am-5pm at Miller Farms Market located at 12101 Orange Plank Rd, Locust Grove, VA 22508.
- Produce Selection: Our goal is to provide you with a selection of fresh, high quality produce that is equivalent to $30 retail value per week. On most weeks the value of the crate will exceed the share value especially during the middle of the growing season. We package all CSA shares in the same size crate (1/2 bushel) and with the same quantity of produce for each customer. We understand that everyone has preferences, but at this time substitutions will not be allowed. If there is produce in your CSA share box that you do not like, you can leave it here and we will gladly donate it to the Food Pantry. Since we operate a farmer’s market on our farm, we will have additional produce and products for sale. Additional products available in our Market include: Trickling Springs Creamery Milk, and Ice Cream, Papa Weaver’s Pork and Beef, Local Honey, and Shawnee Springs products.
- Special requests: If you would like additional produce for a special event or for freezing or canning, please let us know and we will be happy to provide you with an estimated cost and availability.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 540-850-5009 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
- Changes: We allow one pick-up day change per customer and one vacation per customer. Please see #2 and #3 below for our rules on pick-up day changes and vacation schedules. If at any time you would like to make arrangements for a friend to pick up your CSA share, please feel free to do so. This is actually very helpful to us.
- Scheduled Pick-up Day Change:
- When you complete the Ready-to-Go CSA application, you will select one designated pick-up day that remains in effect during the length of the agreement. Pick-up location is the Market on our farm. You are responsible for picking up your share on your selected pick-up day. We allow one pick-up day change per customer, per 11 week season, which must be coordinated with us one week in advance. Pick-up day changes that are not coordinated one week in advance will be considered a missed pick – up and your share for that week will be donated.
- When you complete the Choose-Your-Own CSA application, you can come in any day, Tuesday through Saturday each week.
- Vacation: We allow one vacation week per season per customer. If you have signed up for the full season 33 week option, then you will have 3 vacation weeks. There is one vacation week allowed for each 11 week season. Your vacation week must be coordinated with us one week in advance. If you will be on vacation and unable to pick up your share one week, you must provide us with notice one week in advance in order to receive a double share the week before or the week after your vacation. Vacations that are not coordinated one week in advance will be considered a missed pick up and your share for the week will be donated.
- Refunds: WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS!
- Missed Pick-ups: If you miss your pick-up, your share will be donated for that week. In effort to be good stewards, we support the Food Pantry at Saint Faustina Conference Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. They are located in the Breezewood Shopping Center off of Courthouse Road. All boxes of produce that are not picked up on their designated day and any produce from your share that you do not wish to take home will be donated.
- Returning your box: You are responsible for returning your produce box each week. Your produce share will be packaged in 1/2 bushel crates. When you pick up your weekly share, please remember to return the box from the previous week. If you forget your crate, there will be a $5.00 charge for a new crate.
