Spring is on the Way!

Standard

Spring is coming.

Seeds have been bought and green houses are being prepared for spring planting. Potting soil is being mixed with the Farmer’s secret recipe and as soon as the ground dries out enough tilling will commence!

We are gearing up for our 2017 CSA Season! So be on the look out for updates toward the end of March.

We are planning to add Astoria to our route this year.

If you are in the Astoria area we are looking for a drop spot for our CSA.  It needs to be centrally located. Accessible to our CSA customers from drop off until about 8 or 9pm. A covered porch or carport so the veggies don’t cook in the sun or drown in the rain.  Send me an email or Facebook message and we can discuss the details.

Planting has begun!

 

Counting down the days to Spring!

Where do I sign up?

Standard

It’s not too late to sign up for our CSA! You can join at any point during the season. We deliver weekly to drop locations in Grays River, Naselle, Long Beach, South Bend/Raymond, and now Astoria!

Here are the links to the sign up and preference forms. They can be filled out online and once submitted will be sent automatically to me. Once I have your forms I will email you an invoice that can be paid online, or you can mail a check if you prefer.

We encourage you to sign up for our new Half Season option, which is 12 boxes delivered on the dates of your choosing. This is the easiest route if you are signing up after the 2017 season has officially started!

How does our CSA work?

Standard

Once you complete the CSA Sign-up Form, I will send you your first invoice. 

The exact pick up location and the approximate hours during which you are expected to pick up your box will be emailed you directly as soon as we have those confirmed. Boxes will be arriving on Thursdays afternoons. We hope to have the pick up locations accessible until 7-8 pm. 

On delivery days, I will message you via your preferred contact to let you know the approximate ETA to your pick up location. 

You are responsible to pick up your box and leave your empty box each week. If you forget to bring back your box one week we can cover it. If you forget two weeks in a row, we could run into problems. All boxes must be returned at the end of the season. 

All times are approximate. Farming is unpredictable. We will do our best to keep to a schedule, but sometimes cows get out, tractors get stuck, vehicles break down, there’s road construction, or conversations with CSA members happen at drop locations and the Farmer has a tendency to underestimate how long things will take. (It is getting better!) 

If you you have questions or concerns about your box please email me directly at glorybfarms.csa@gmail.com

Each week we will be posting a list of items you can expect in your box, hopefully by Sunday evening. These will appear both on Facebook and our website when it is up and running (estimated debut June 15th-30th). We will also be featuring recipes using items in the boxes. 

If you sign up for a Full Season: After you sign up, I will email an invoice for the full amount which you can either pay online using a credit/debit card or via check. Payment must be received by June 10th. If you are unable to pay the entire amount at the beginning of the season, we will also accept 6 post-dated checks for the monthly amounts which will then be deposited at the beginning of each month. Less paperwork for us, and easier on your bank account!

If you sign up monthly: I will send out order forms for the following month on the 20th of each month, which will be due on the 25th. After I receive your order form, I will send you an invoice for that month. (For example, on June 20th I’ll send out order forms for July. Once I’ve received the completed order forms on June 25th, within 24 hours I’ll send invoices for the July payment.) Payment must be received by the first Monday of the month. You can either pay online using a credit/debit card or via check.

If you have a last minute cancellation please email me as soon as you know. No refunds, but a credit for the amount of your box will be given for up to two boxes a season. That credit can be applied to purchasing extra strawberries, bulk items for canning, etc. Add on items like an extra flat of berries or bulk canning items must be received by Monday at Midnight if you would like them delivered the following Thursday.

Thank you,

Thank you so much for your interest in our new CSA!

Standard

We are excited to be able to offer this service to the Grays River, Naselle, Long Beach, and South Bend/Raymond areas.

Get certified organic, locally grown produce delivered to your area weekly — straight from the field to you! We will harvest on Wednesdays, pack up your boxes and deliver on Thursdays. No sitting around warehouses for days before being shipped to your big box store, where by the time you are able to purchase your produce it is already a week old.

We offer both Full Season and Monthly packages. Sign up for a Regular or Small Share, depending on how many items you would like
in your box:

  • Regular Share, 8-12 items, $25/box
  • Small Share, 4-6 items, $15/box
