Cropshare Guidelines

Welcome to the Little Wings Farm Crop Share 2021. We are really excited you have joined our farm.  We look forward to sharing the produce we love to eat and grow with you and your family! Below, you will find guidelines to our Crop Share.  As always if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us via phone, text or email!

 

Making your weekly selection (or not)

Each week you will receive an email with a link to the week's online selection form. The email will tell you what items will be included in all of the shares that week and then offer the opportunity to select specialty items to fill out your linked selection form. The form must be submitted by 7pm on Sunday for Tuesday delivery or by 7pm on Wednesday for Friday delivery. But remember, you do not have to make a selection, it is optional. If you do not submit your selections, we will make the choices for you and you will receive your full share. NOTE: If for some reason you do not receive your selection email please let us know so we can determine the problem. In any case you are still able to make your selections by using the link on our website.

                                                               Adding on extra items to your box

After you make your selections, you will be able to select add on items on a separate form for an additional charge.  You can pay with a debit/credit card or with vacation credit. These purchased items will be included in your tote.   There is no processing fee for these purchases.

  This way if you have guests in town and would like more salad greens or a beautiful bouquet, you will be able to add this on.

 

                                                           Things to know about picking up your tote

 

 Look for your name: The most important thing to remember is that your tote is unique to you and has your name on it. Before you take food out of a tote double check to be absolutely sure that you are not taking someone else's food. If you have someone pick up your food for you then you need to be sure that they will double check as well. Please stop to think how you would feel if you arrived to pick up your food and found your tote empty.  

You will need to bring a container to transfer your food to. Please leave the tote completely empty so that we can keep the host site and totes clean. The totes are left at the host site and stacked neatly after they are emptied

The hours for pick up are 3-7pm. Please respect the privacy of our site hosts by coming during those hours. We will send you an invitation to Remind so that you can receive a reminder on your phone or computer on the day of delivery. The same system is used for last minute updates if our delivery has been delayed for any reason. NOTE: If you do not pick up your share you will not receive any credit or replacement.

Each site will have directions for parking and other site specific directions. Please know and follow these directions.

Vacation Credit and How to use it

We want you to have fun and we know sometimes you may not be able to pick up your share  so we offer unlimited vacation credit which can be used to purchase u-pick berries, crop share add ons, and items in our on line store. The credit for a Classic Share is $21 and for the Super Share $33. The credit expires at the end of 2021. NOTE: In order to receive credit you must give us advanced notice (the more the better) AND receive an acknowledgement back to show that we received your request and recorded it correctly. You can notify us by sending an email to littlewingsfarm@gmail.com or by sending a message through our website littlewingsfarm.com. You cannot notify us with a reply email because that may lead to our missing your message.  When you have a credit you will receive more detailed information about how to use it.

Missed Pick Ups

There is no reimbursement or credit if you do not pick up your  box. We do not retrieve missed boxes, they become the property of the dropsite. To help avoid missed pick ups I will be sending all members a text message reminder on the day of pick up.  If necessary you can ask us to leave your box at the farm for pick up but you need to communicate directly with us before noon on your delivery day so that there is no confusion.

 

 

 

Penalty for Taking a Different Members Food 

In an effort to impress members with the importance of making sure they are collecting food from their own tote we  now penalize members who accidentally or otherwise take other members food. You will be charged a $15 fee.  Ultimately we spend extra time, labor, and fuel to re-harvest and deliver the desired items to the member who did not get their box.
