How do I know what’s coming in my next box?

There are a couple ways to find this information! We will tell you in the Eater’s Digest, our weekly newsletter, and you can check your account to see what you’ll be getting each week. Log into your online account and click on the “See what’s in my box/View calendar” link in “MY SUBSCRIPTIONS.” We will also keep our members page updated as soon as we project the contents for the coming week. For more information about our Community Supported Agriculture … read more…

Where and when do I pick up my box?

You can remind yourself of your pick-up location through your member account.

Can I make a substitution in my box?

As much as we understand the want to customize your box, there are a few reasons why we unfortunately aren’t able to make individual substitutions. We build your Farmer’s Choice share each week with a diverse assortment of the freshest produce that can be grown in our region. Keeping a steady supply of fresh food flowing from our fields takes a lot of careful planning! Each head of lettuce you pull out of your box began its story many months … read more…

What do I do with my empty box?

To cut down on waste and costs, we reuse all of our OxBoxes and appreciate when members return them to us. After you empty your box, break it down and bring it with you when you go to pick your box up next time. Your pick-up location should have a designated spot for empty boxes. Each week, our delivery crew takes these empty boxes back to the farm. Please return your box even if it is damaged. We have plenty … read more…

I ordered additional products online. When will I get them?

We need some turnaround time to get the products from our add-on partners, so your items will be in the box no fewer than five days out from the date you placed your order. For example, if you order a jar of jam on a Tuesday and your pick-up day is Wednesday, the jam will be in your box the following Wednesday, not the next day. Your pick-up day determines your order deadline. You can see your order deadline on our members … read more…

How do I know which box is mine?

One of the boxes at your pick-up location will have a sticker with your name on it. That is your box! Please be sure that you are picking up YOUR box each week. Though the Farmer’s Choice contents of all boxes are the same, some people purchase add-ons and additional produce each week, meaning that not all boxes are created equal! Note: Fruit shares are packed separately—we don’t want anything to get squished! If you ordered a fruit share, your … read more…

Can I change my pick-up location?

Yes, it’s easy to do this through your online account. Here’s how: In MY SUBSCRIPTIONS, click “View/Modify subscription” and make whatever change you are hoping for. Please note, changes must be made by your order deadline (approx five days before the date of your delivery). We are sorry, but with all of our moving pieces, we can’t accommodate last-minute requests. You can always check your delivery schedule through your online account to be sure your box is headed wherever you want to … read more…

When is my order deadline?

We will pack and deliver your Farmer’s Choice share each week. You do not have to order your box every week. Your order deadline only applies if you want to order add-on products or any additional produce. Your order deadline corresponds to your pick-up day: Sunday pick-up: Order deadline is the preceding Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday pick-up: Order deadline is the preceding Friday at 11:59 p.m. Thursday pick-up: Order deadline is the preceding Saturday at 11:59 p.m. Friday pick-up: Order deadline is … read more…
