U-Pick Information

U-pick is included in the CSA share price for the season. U-pick crops for 2017 will be a diverse selection of culinary herbs and flowers. U-pick crops will be marked with a sign in the field. Please walk only in aisles between the rows as to prevent trampling of other crops and to avoid soil compaction. Please bring clippers/scissors for cutting, though we will make sure there are a couple of pairs in the pick-up area.

General Member Guidelines

Frequently Asked Questions

I am here. How does this work?

First, check your name off the sign-in sheet. It is helpful to us to keep track of how many members have picked up their share and how many more members to expect.

The vegetables will be set out on tables in the pick up area. Quantities and weights of each vegetable and for each share type will be listed on the board. Please follow the limits for your share because taking extra means we will have to harvest more than we planned.

What should I bring?

Bags, boxes, and containers in which to carry your vegetables. Feel free to bring extra plastic bags to put in the shed for other members to use. If you are planning to spend some time picking, proper gear for the weather is recommended, including sturdy boots. Remember your clippers!

What do I do if I can't make it/I'm on vacation?

If you cannot pick up your share one week, you can arrange for a friend or family member to pick it up, or you can donate it to the local food pantry. Please let us know one week in advance.

How do I contact the farmers?

Email is our preferred method of contact; please email us at madradishcsa@gmail.com with any questions or comments you have. You can also call us at 443-643-5684 (Brittany) or 717-512-5602 (Michael).

CSA Member Commitment Statement

I am committing to support the work of this farm and in return I will receive a share of the harvest. I understand that the farm will provide the most bountiful harvest as possible, however I realize that farming varies from season to season and is susceptible to weather, insects, disease and other acts of nature. There is no guarantee of any specific crop or quantities.
