CSA Pickup Days

Whether it is your first time picking up, or you are a seasoned pro, take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our pickup routine. Things may have changed.

All Pickup Sites
A weekly email reminder will be sent the day before your pickup. We will give you an approximation of what will be in your shares, recipes or storage tips, and any other information that may be relevant that week.
Park where indicated. Both at the farm, co-op and at off site pick ups if they have specific parking requirements.  
Check Swap Box before leaving if you wish to customize your share. You may exchange an item from your share for one of equal value. ***Station Tap Room does not have a swap box currently due to COVID.
Check the blog or the email reminder for current recipes.
Farm Pickups 
Pull into the driveway and follow to the left to the parking area. Please be conscious to not block the access way so others may also enter. To exit, continue driving along the access road to the exit.  This has the best visibility and is the safest way to return to Cedar Knoll Road.

If you pick up at the farm please bring bags or a basket to take your share home in. ***This has been adjusted because of COVID and we will pack all shares in paper bags. They are labeled with the share size on the side. 
Please do not forget to check your name off on the clipboards so that we are aware that you have picked up your share.
Check the board outside the retail store at the walkway.  It will give you any choices your share size may have and you can let the worker know what they are. Also, please state your name and share size upon arrival. 
While COVID still exists, we are practicing social distancing and require all people to wear masks at pick up time.
Co-Op Site Pickups (Narberth) and off site pickups
Please remember that the co-op site is at your host’s private home, and be mindful of pickup times and parking. Please contact your host directly if you are going to be late for your pick up in extenuating circumstances. 

Please check your name off on the clipboard when you pick up your share so that we know that you have received it. 

All shares are pre-packed. Small shares will be packed into green market bags, medium shares will be in red bags and large shares will be in crates and will need to be packed into your own bags to take home. Leave crates at the host site. Small and medium shares please return last week’s market bag the following week so we can use it again.  ***This has changed due to COVID and shares are now packed in brown paper bags.  They are labeled with a large colored letter to indicate the size share.

Since the shares are pre-packed, when we offer a choice of produce, approximately half the shares will be packed with one produce item and the remainder with the other choice. Do not remove produce from other members’ crates.

If you pick up at one of our off-farm sites please leave the plastic crate if you are getting a large share. Simply unload it into your own bags or box to transport to your home. Medium and small share bags may go home with you. We ask that you return them the following week so we can reuse them. All crates stay at the pickup sites.  ***This has been adjusted because of COVID and we will pack all shares in paper bags.  The bags will be labeled with a large letter for share size on the side and a label with the options that are in the bag.  
If you purchased an egg share, please check the list on the egg cooler to make sure you are getting eggs and what size carton. If you do not see your name on the list, please do not take eggs.

Don’t forget to check the Swap Box! You may exchange one item in your share for an item of equal value in the box.

What if I Can’t Pickup My Share?
Please email us as soon as possible, preferably 24 hours in advance, if you cannot pick up your share. Once your share is packed and delivered, we cannot replace it or redeliver it another day. If you let us know ahead of time, you have several choices:

Ask a friend or relative to pick up for you.
Defer your share until the end of the season.
Ask us if either the farm or site host will donate it for you
