Home Delivery CSA

Home Delivery CSA  2020

With the onset of Covid-19 we are trying to create a way for our wonderful customers to receive our products in a way that protects both our team and your family.

We do not intend for this program to replace our market share program.  We still have hope that our markets will be going through the 2020 season.

We will home deliver your 2020 CSA with minimal interaction in order to achieve this.  While our community and close social interactions are important to us, we need to step back to keep our business prospering, while being sensitive to everyone’s safety.

Once a week we will deliver the selected shares to your door.

Due by April 1, 2020.  

This is a firm due date as we need to plant to fill your order.  There is also limited space so sign up today.

Delivery $330 or $165 ($15/delivery)

  • We are offering our shares on a delivery basis.  Locals may pick up at the farm drop point that will keep the box at roadside to eliminate cross contamination with farm staff.
  • Please make sure you are within our delivery areas before purchasing our products or shares.  Email or Text us please.
  • We may relax the on farm pickup setup if the situation warrants.
  • We feel strongly that the lowest/best environmental impact for us as a farm is to deliver many shares with one vehicle.  The other option of 100+ cars to drive 30+ miles makes very little sense environmentally.
  • If you need to drive more than 15 miles to pick up your share, the cost of delivery will be more than the charge of $15, not to mention the time involved in driving out to the farm.

Drop off requirements:

  • You are required to have a large cooler or refrigerator outside that will hold the share easily.  A bushel is fairly large.
  • Please have a way to keep it cool
  • The cooler needs to be easily accessible

Please note that we are not responsible for losses after delivery.

Please familiarize yourself with CSA etiquette and understanding regarding variable share sizes across the season, crop losses and the non-refundable nature of CSA shares.

Kent will not always answer his phone or return a text during the work day, it may be the next morning.

We will always do our best, we will always own it when we make mistakes. You will always be respectful and kind to Plato Dale Farm staff and ownership.

This is a trial run and we reserve the right to change or improve the program while we are on the fly.
