Is Frith Farm Certified Organic?
Yes, all our produce and meat poultry are certified Organic, and our pigs and sheep will be by 2013. We believe, however, that the Organic standard is not the be-all and end-all of best farming practices, so will never limit ourselves to simply meeting its prescriptions.
Do You Offer Smaller CSA Shares?
No, unfortunately offering half shares complicates CSA operation more than we feel it’s worth. If you are an individual, we encourage you to find a friend or two with whom to split a share. Or feel free to leave your information with us and we can pass it along to other folks seeking half shares.
Can I Come Volunteer on the Farm?
Of course! Feel free to show up at any time, but keep in mind we may be in the middle of a project that’s easier to finish without extra help. If you give us a day's notice, we can try to have some suitable work for you to help with.
What if I Miss a Pickup?
We offer only freshly harvested vegetables, so do not save leftover shares. Because of this we cannot offer your share after the pickup date. If you let us know in advance that you can’t make it, we can reschedule your pickup for another day. If you plan to be gone for several weeks, we suggest you have a friend pick up and enjoy your share while you’re away.
Do You Grow My Favorite Vegetable?
The chances are pretty good - see the list of vegetables we grow. We welcome feedback and suggestions on the varieties of vegetables we offer in our shares. Please let us know what you like and don’t like, and anything you think is missing.
