Tentative Dates for 2020
(depending on weather, but this is the plan)
June 11 – October 1

Delivery Location
We deliver to a secure, shaded spot at your home or a pre-arranged secure location within our delivery area (most areas in Richmond west of No.6 Rd).
Multi-unit homes: A condo or townhouse with a ground-floor secure spot are fine, but we cannot enter a building to deliver to your door.  It must be possible to leave your veggies in your CSA bin even if you are not home.  Contact us if you have questions about your location.
Your Delivery Bin & COVID-19 Food Safety Strategy:
This season you will remain in possession of your CSA bin and we will deliver your veggies into your bin, which you set out on delivery day (instead of our usual method of swapping your empty bin for a full one every week).  Unfortunately this will reverse our plastic reduction attempts and require more plastic bags… we’ll do our best on this but your safety is our top priority.

Farm Pick-up – Limited spots
If you live outside our delivery zone or do not have a secure & shaded location at home where we can drop off your bin, we can accommodate five (out of 120) members picking up from the farm on delivery day from a designated shady spot at the entrance to the farm.  Due to landowner requirements, this must remain limited to a small number of pick-ups.  If you are able to arrange a location at a friend or family member’s home, please do consider that option before requesting farm pick-up.  Thanks!

What you get as a CSA Member
17 weeks of farm-fresh ecologically-grown veggies
delivered to your door.

Bonus! Over the course of the season, occasionally you get extra veggies as a CSA bonus – when we have abundance, we pass it on in gratitude.  It’s a “veggie return on your investment” in us.

Our very best! You are the heart of our farming season – we always put our CSA first, we plan our crops for you, and we time our harvest to ensure you get the freshest, most diverse and delicious veggies our farm produces!

Occasional member newsletter keeping you connected to the farm & updates on issues important to local agriculture, what’s in your box, storage & prep ideas, nutritional info, recipes, and whatever we’re excited about at the time!

“Fill Yer Boots” bulk order in the fall.  We aim to offer our Members a bulk order to stock up on roots, squash & fall crops….assuming our crops are plentiful enough to do so.

Our thanks for supporting Sweet Digz Farm:  With your up-front payment, we get an influx of funds early in the season, when our expenses are high and our source of income still hasn’t sprouted out of the soil.  We are so grateful for this community support!
.
You’re making a difference in supporting local food security, ecologically regenerative agriculture, and positive solutions to climate change and the myriad of global issues connected to a massively unjust and unsustainable global industrial food system!

🙂  Three meals a day, you can be the change you want to see in the world.
