We are gearing up for the first delivery which is happening soon!

Please remember that anyone may collect your box, bag, or goodies in whatever form they may appear and you do not need to tell us…just be sure they know your name! 🙂
What to expect at the first pickup: To be honest, there usually is not a large variety or quantity of produce early in the season. Yes, we know some farms start earlier…but you’ll find they often distribute 4 or more weeks of just greens and, while that might float my boat, we have found from 16 years of experience that the majority does not welcome a large bag of only greens week after week. We hope to offer you spinach or mesclun, lettuce, beets, assorted Swiss chard, assorted Kale, strawberries and perhaps summer squash. As the weeks continue, you will see an increase in variety and there will be weeks when the amount of produce is much greater…it all works out, no worries.
Generally the first week we will hand out our Stillman’s bags, Stillman’s Bucks, a box-letter (also available on the blog, so please feel free to save paper ;), and your produce, of course. After that, we will see you every week, same time, same place, where you will either pickup your box or select your produce, depending where your pickup is. PLEASE return boxes weekly. Many of you will receive waxed boxes that will be reused as many times as possible. If you receive a box, please return it the following week. They are designed to open and close repeatedly without tearing or ripping (I know a pile of you return members are smiling right now because here begins the box rant). If you have any questions about how to open or collapse your box, please ask anyone. We even have a tutorial on You Tube 😉
