Pick Up Location FAQ
How many veggies will I receive each week?
The number of vegetables will change based on the time of the season, but you can expect an average of 6 vegetable types each week. We will let you know a few days ahead of time which varieties you’ll get in your Harvest so that you can plan accordingly.
We’ve included a measurement chart (found above) to give you an idea of the quantities you can expect.
How many people will a weekly share feed?
The number of people the share will feed will differ based on how many vegetables you typically eat. On average, your Harvest Share bag should be sufficient to feed a couple or a small family. However, because of the seasonal nature of vegetables, you may wish to continue to supplement your share with other vegetables that you typically cook with.
What if I cannot pick up my share one week?
If you cannot pick up your share one week, you can either send someone to pick up the share on your behalf, or donate your share to the centre to feed our farm visitors. We ask that you notify staff ahead of time.
Shares will not be stored overnight at your pick-up location. This is for safety reasons as the bags, which are insulated and keep the vegetable cool for a few hours, will not be stored in a refrigerator overnight. Staff members at your pick-up location are instructed to dispose of the vegetables when the center closes at night.
What if there’s a vegetable I don’t want to receive?
If there’s a veggie you don’t like, let us know and we’ll do our best to keep it out of the mix for you!
Where do I pick up my vegetables?
To preserve the freshness of your vegetables, we will store them in an insulated bag or a cooler from the time they get dropped off by our farm team member to the moment you pick them up at your Center. This will keep them fresh for up to 4 - 6 hours. You will receive an email to inform you that your share has been dropped off. We recommend you pick them up in a timely manner to insure freshness and food safety.
