Summer CSA Sign-up Limited  –  Email Us For Availability;  email Lisa

Because our business model has changed so drastically in the last few months, and since no one knows where this is going for this summer season, our CSA is very nearly full.  email us to make sure there is space before you send the signup form and a check.  The farm stand will be open to anyone from the general public, so even if we do need to cut off the CSA signups you’ll still be able to come to the farm stand and get what you need. Thanks for your understanding.

THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING THESE RULES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

We and many of our CSA members are in (or rapidly approaching) the high risk age group.  Further, we have CSA members in treatment for cancer and other conditions.  Although these folks will not be visiting the farm during this time, we will be making bags for them so we want to keep the area as safe as possible.

  • Do NOT come to the farm:
    • If you have any cold or flu like symptoms,
    • If you have traveled by any public transit system in the last 14 days,
    • If you have arrived in Maine from any highly affected area in the last 14 days; for example metro New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, or any other highly affected area.
    • If you know, or think that you have been exposed,
    • If you are self-quarantined for any reason,
    • For CSA members ONLY, if you can’t pass these rules, we will make a bag and bring it to your car if you contact us in advance.
  • Keep at least 6 feet between you and other customers in the farm stand.
    • Limit the farm stand to 4 People at a time.  If there are more than 4 people in the farm stand, it is too crowded, please wait outside for someone to leave.
  • Use the plastic gloves and plastic bags provided to collect what you want to buy.  Do NOT use your own reusable bags.
  • Face masks are strongly recommended, but we cannot supply them.
  • CASH AND CHECKS – Many people have expressed a serious concern about handling cash.  Based on the most recent guidance from the New England Journal of Medicine that it is unlikely that the virus can survive on cardboard surfaces for more than 24 hours, we are sealing and segregating our received cash and checks for 7 days.
    • Please deposit all payments into the “Payment” container and take all change from the “Change” drawer.
      • We will seal all payments in plastic bags for 7 days before we deposit cash and checks.
      • All cash available from the “Change” drawer will come from a bag that has been segregated for 7 days to minimize the chance of any live virus.
    • Use our provided plastic gloves to handle cash, checks, and make change.

Non-Contact Payment – We have evaluated several different “non-contact” payment methods and decided against all of them.  Unfortunately, all these services would require that we raise our prices by 5% to 10% to cover the service charges and may take up to 2 weeks to implement.  We are trying to keep our prices as low as possible, especially during this crisis, and to react as quickly as possible.  For the foreseeable future we will continue to accept only CASH AND CHECKS, see above.  If this changes, we’ll post the change here.

FREQUENT UPDATES – We apologize that this page has become so long and has changed so often.  This situation is changing daily and we are trying very hard to keep up with all available guidance.  Please read this entire section before contacting us.  Please contact us if this page does not answer your questions.
