HOW does Nottawa Fruit Farm's Subscription Plan Work?
Nottawa Fruit Farm’s Community Supported Agriculture subscription program will provide 12 “Boxes” of fresh fruits and vegetables from June through October. The produce price to the customer at sign-up is $252. There is a *refundable deposit of $24 ($2 per box) making your total cost = $276. Partial subscriptions are available at $23 each, plus the $2 per box deposit. As you consider subscribing, and this sounds like too much produce at one time, may we suggest that you divide your share with a family member or friend.
HOW do I pick up my Specially—Prepared “Box“ of Produce?
Deliveries would be provided to any pick-up site that has at least 5 subscribers--however, distance would be a determining factor whether packs could be delivered. In 2015, Pick-Up sites were in Colon and Texas Corners. Otherwise, subscribers would be responsible for *picking up their "Box” at the Farm Market on designated days. Based on a typical (seasons could vary) growing season, plans are to have the following schedule:
JUNE - Two Pick-Ups or deliveries
JULY - Three Pick-Ups or deliveries
AUGUST - Three Pick-Ups or deliveries
SEPTEMBER - Three Pick-Ups or deliveries
OCTOBER - One Pick-Up or delivery
*Please Note: It is the subscriber's responsibility to pick up his/her share on the designated day; unfortunately, time constraints do not allow us to give "make-up" boxes unless prior arrangements have been made. Missed pick-ups will be donated to our local food bank - and no credit or refund will be issued for that particular box.
If every Michigan family would buy just $10 a week of local Michigan fruits and vegetables, it would keep $37 million new dollars each week here in Michigan - Michigan Department of Agriculture.
