Hello CSA Members,
We are receiving more CSA order forms each day - thank you to those who have submitted them already (letters and receipts will soon be sent out!) We're happy to see many of you receiving the early bird discount.
The main reason for contacting you is that we are seeking additional 2011 pick-up sites in the Madison and Lacrosse areas. Site Coordinators receive $200 off their produce share or meat bundle. Do you have a small space on a good porch or garage that would work? We also work with businesses as pick-up sites, perhaps your work place would be interested in hosting a pickup site?
Please consider that CSA box pick-up area needs to be:
a) Out of direct sunlight
b) Clean: no produce from the previous week, no pets that could accidentally mark on boxes, not near a leaky oil spot, close to cat litter boxes or other materials that could adversely affect the taste of produce
c) Moderately clutter free so members can easily access their boxes
d) Undercover so they aren't rained on (this includes the empty boxes)
e) In general keep in mind that organic integrity must be maintained during this temporary storage - this includes empty boxes since we'll re-pack into them.
Additionally, each site has a specific Site Coordinator. The Site Coordinator is the main point of contact for people picking up at your site & communicating problems to the farmers. They also make phone calls/emails when people don't pick up their box, may hold boxes for people who can't pick up on the day of delivery, ensure the site is a clean shaded storage area for incoming and empty boxes, and makes sure that people are following general CSA guidelines (taking the boxes designated for them, leaving the wax boxes at the site, etc.).
Please contact the farm ASAP if you’re interested and we will see if your location will work or to discuss any questions!
