Are your products organic?

We farm all of our products organically, but we occasionally purchase produce from neighboring farms to supplement your shares, most of which are organic and some of which are not. At the Egleston Square Farmers Market we label all of the organic produce as such and are happy to review CSA items to specify what is organic and what is conventional.

What happens if we can not make it to the pick up on the day we signed up for?

It is very important that you show up to collect your shares at your chosen location, during our pick-up hours. We can only provide your share on the day that you signed up for, and we cannot replace shares that are not picked up. You may send a friend to pick up your share for you, just have them give your name at pickup.
