Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I buy your greens?

One option is to have them delivered to you! See below for more info on our Home Delivery service. Otherwise, you can find us at the Northeast Farmers Market (both summer and winter markets), or you can find our produce at Eastside Food Co-op.

How does Home Delivery work?

Start here. Choose your box: Lowry (Pick 3 items), Central (Pick 5), or Broadway (Pick 7). Click “Sign-up” and then choose how often you want the box delivered (weekly or bi-weekly) and what items you'd like to receive. Finish the sign-up process, and then we will send an email to confirm the details and let you know when to expect the first box. You won’t be charged until the day of your first delivery. All that’s left is to enjoy the fresh and local greens delivered to your house!

How long am I signing up for?

As long as you’d like. We're a year-round farm, so the greens will keep coming regardless of season. With that said, you're not locked into anything - you can cancel any time.

What areas do you serve?

Currently, we offer free delivery to the following zip codes: 55418, 55413, and 55421. For folks that live outside this area, we offer a pick-up option from our farm in Columbia Heights on Wednesdays between 9 AM and 6 PM.

How do you deliver?

We drop off lettuce, kale, basil, arugula, and other great-tasting greens at your door! The greens will be in an insulated box that protects them from the elements, so you don't need to be home. You can give us specific drop-off instructions in the sign-up form (like which door to use), but typically we'll just drop off the box at your doorstep.

When will you deliver the greens?

After you sign up, we'll let you know the specific day of the week that we will delivery your box. If the day we select doesn't work for you, we'll work with you to pick a good day.

What's the delivery charge?

Delivery is FREE for anyone living in the following zip codes: 55418, 55413, and 55421. If you live outside these zip codes, you can pick up your box at our farm in Columbia Heights.

What do I do with the box that the greens come in?

Reusing the delivery boxes limits our environmental impact and helps us keep our costs down, so please leave the box out for us to pick up the day after it's delivered. If you forget once, not a problem. Just leave the box out on your next delivery day. If you forget twice, we'll contact you to schedule your next delivery for a time when you're home. Lost or damaged boxes will result in a $15 replacement fee charged to your account.

Can I skip a delivery?

Yes, you can skip a delivery anytime, and you're never charged for greens you don't get. Just go to our Skip or Reschedule a Delivery page. We ask that you get in touch at least 24 hours before your scheduled delivery.

Can I switch between plans or change my frequency?

Yes. You're never locked into your order. Go here to change your subscription. The change may not take effect immediately depending on the availability of the greens you are requesting.

How do I change the contents of my box?

Just click here, and pick your new items.

How big are the boxes?

The pictures on the Products page give you an idea of what to expect. 

What if I don’t like it?

If you don’t like your first box and cancel your subscription before your second delivery, we won't charge you for the box you received.

Why should I buy produce from you?

We provide fresh, locally grown produce 12 months a year. We are customer-driven because our customers are our neighbors, so we're always working to improve our produce - making it better tasting, longer lasting, and exactly the varieties that our customers want.

 

We're a neighborhood farm. We believe "buy local" is important because we believe it contributes to the vibrancy of our community. The more connections we have, the better we'll be, and what connects people more than great food!

Eat healthy! We know it's not easy to eat healthy. We deliver fresh and great tasting produce, with recipes and ideas of how to use it. 

Are you organic?

Technically, no. Right now, the agriculture community is in some disagreement about what organic should mean. We've chosen to stay out of the discussion, and instead stay focused on growing high-quality, pesticide-free plants.

 

Are your plants non-GMO?

Yes! All our plants are non-GMO.
