Are you looking to stay within your weekly grocery budget? Trying to incorporate more organically grown, heirloom and GMO-free produce to your weekly meals? Are you needing more ideas to help get dinner on the table every night? Do you have a desire to get connected with your local farmer? What if we told you, that you can have ALL of this, for as little as $23 a week, for 25 weeks?!

We’re inviting you to take part in something spectacular! An opportunity to grace your table with the weekly bounty from your local farm. When you purchase a Farm to Table Box you become a special shareholder of the farm, enabling you to take pride in your local farm and all that comes with committing to your farm family. This includes all the ups, the downs, the risks and especially the wins of growing things!

 

From Promise to Produce in 3 Easy Steps

What will I find in my weekly box?

Our weekly Farm to Table Boxes will include approximately 5-10 produce items that are organically grown right here on our farm, all of them heirloom and gmo-free. (The first few weeks will be about 5-7 items or equal the total weekly box amount.) Our boxes have a longer than normal extended growing season, with a TOTAL of 25 weeks, from May 31st – November 19!

The first few boxes of the season will contain some cooler crops like lettuce, spinach, cauliflower etc… but you will begin to see your box “grow” and become more abundant as the season progresses forward and onward with growth. During the summer weeks you’ll be able to enjoy things like tomatoes, okra, *sweet corn, zucchini, melons, and even strawberries! As the fall weeks come along, you’ll discover your cooler crops again, plus things like potatoes, garlic and pie pumpkins etc… If you want to see some of the produce you’ll find in your box over the different weeks, get a glance by visiting our What We Grow page.

*NEW for 2022! This year we needed help to produce enough sweet corn for our growing farm customers – something we are currently unable to keep up with in abundance! We’ve collaborated with a local farm near us. (Please note, this corn is GMO-free, however not certified organic.)

 

Where do I pick-up my box?

You’ll be asked to choose from one of these pick-up options at time of checkout.

TUES, 3 pm – 6 pm – Eden Ridge Acres (May-Nov)
THURS, 4 pm – 6 pm – Valley Junction Farmers Market | Eden Ridge booth (June 2nd through Sep. 29th option only.) The rest of pickups after Market is over, will be at the farm only.

 

 

Add-on box options

Your box will come filled with veggies and sometimes fruit, why not make it a full box bundle by adding on more farm goods?

Shop the online farm store to add on more goodies to your Farm to Table box. Things like, farm fresh eggs, pastured pork, pastured chicken, fresh raw honey, homemade jams, jellies and preserves, elderberry syrup, farm teas etc…

Frequent Questions

CAN I SWITCH MY PICK-UP SITE?

YES. However, if you’re going to do this a lot, it is very difficult for our small farm to manage. We ask that you try your best to stick with your first initial pick-up option, but also understand things do happen and plans must change. If it happens every now and then, we can accommodate it. You just need to let us know 2 days before. For emergency cases, we ask that you please try and connect with a family or friend to pick up your box.

 

DO YOU CREDIT MY ACCOUNT IF I MISS MY BOX PICKUP?

No, we do not. It takes numerous hours, days and weeks involved to plan, grow, harvest and pack your box. So much work goes behind the scenes. It’s a major investment on our part, and we do it all ourselves, sometimes we must hire help. There’s the cost of the vegetables themselves. If you are unable to pick up, or a vacation is planned, and you can’t pick up, please make different arrangements. Have a family or friend pick-up for you.

CAN I SEND A PICK-UP SUBSTITUTE IF I CAN'T COME FOR ANY REASON?

Yes, of course! If you cannot pick up your box yourself, simply send a substitute family or friend! All they need to do is give us your name at pick-up. Just share the pick-up ropes with your substitute and how it works. Remind them to bring a cooler, box or crate to take items home in. We can assist them as needed.

I'M GOING ON VACATION! WHAT SHOULD I DO? WHAT IF I MISS A PICKUP?

We want you to get your vacations in, those times of refreshing are important! If you plan on going on vacation during pick-up season (which is 25 weeks long!) We are unable to customize every order, and instead encourage you to plan-ahead! Planning helps our small family farm keep our costs down and keep growing and raising food for you and your family. We suggest lining up a friend or family member to pick up your box for you during vacation time or during crazy life happenings. Because we know they all happen! If you won’t be home to enjoy your box of farm goodness, we suggest gifting it to your friend or family who came to gather it up. We do offer the opportunity for you to donate your box(es) while you are away too. We are happy to deliver to the local food pantry or to a local family in need. This needs to be arranged 5 days in advance. You can also switch your pickup site. You must give us 5 days’ notice so we can make the necessary changes to our packing system. We do not credit accounts for missed pickups or vacations travels. We ask that you help us out by planning proper arrangements for your farm box investment, so we can keep offering affordable prices to all participating families.

WHAT IF ITS BAD WEATHER ON PICK UP DAY?

We define “bad weather” as severe thunderstorm, hail, tornado warnings, lightening, blizzards or any weather not advised for travel – anything that prevents you or us from safely standing outside. If this type of weather occurs, we will contact you via email with alternate details.

WHY PAY IN ADVANCE?

Our Farm to Table Boxes are planned more than a year in advance. Your subscription paid in full helps ease the burden of uncertainty associated with our small farm operation, while paying for up-front farming expenses so we can keep growing and raising food for you, and your family. Your subscription fees provide us with money to purchase seed, or the labor to save the previous years seed, it helps pay for labor, and equipment before the season even begins. We hope your commitment to us gives you a sense of community and connection with our little farm-family.

WHEN DO THE FARM TO TABLE BOXES START?

Our 2022 season will be May 31st – November 19! A total of 25 weeks of farm to table goodness!

 

WHAT SIZE OF BOX SHOULD I GET?

We recommend getting the small box if you are new to the farm. If you know you consume A LOT of vegetables or have a larger family, or you just like to store things away for the winter, then we suggest you choose our large box. You will find that the large box is exactly twice the amount of veggies as the small box.

WHAT WILL BE IN MY BOX EACH WEEK?

Please head over to our What We Grow page to view a list of some of the things you will most likely find in your weekly box, month by month. This page will give you a pretty good idea of how to plan for what you will get in your box each week. This is not 100% accurate though, as we are unable to control the seasons and the weather that comes with it. We can’t give you an exact date of each veggie and fruit we grow, just a good guess with our farm planning. NOTE: The first weeks or two of boxes will be a little lighter. This is to be expected. Don’t worry though! You’ll have full bounty boxes as the season goes on to make up for it!

DO I GET TO PICK WHAT GOES IN MY WEEKLY BOX?

Each box is pre-packed with approximately 5-10 staple veggies. After you claim your box at pick-up, you can take a designated set amount of whatever you desire from our “bonus bounty box” at no extra charge. You can also order additional farm products in advance from our online farm store, things like fresh eggs, raw honey, farm teas, jams, jellies, preserves etc… each week. When you order add-ons, just make a note on check-out that you are adding this on to your Table to Farm box, and mark pick-up option. These items will be ready for pick-up when you grab your box.

CANCELLATION POLICY

We do not offer cancellation refunds. If you for any reason you are dissatisfied with an item or have a problem with a box, please give us a chance to make you happy by connecting with us ASAP. We want the best for our farm friends! Do you have an emergency that affects your Farm to Table Box commitment? Please communicate your situation as early as you can so we can address things immediately. In most cases we are unable to refund due to prior investments on our part. But we do try and work with you case by case.
