switcheroo policy
your options for vacations, missed shares or schedule conflicts


boxed shares

Have a friend pick
up your share

& introduce the CSA concept to a friend or house-sitter!  A great last minute option!

contact Molly and she will arrange to have your share donated. 

You must email Molly by Monday at 5pm to have your food directed to the food pantry

Hold your share and
double up another week

if you miss a share without letting us know you may not collect a double share later, the food we harvested for you will be donated

you MUST email Molly by Monday at 5pm of the week you will be away to do this



what if I miss the Thursday pickup window?

Many sites offer Friday morning pickup! Check your site details,

you can also try calling your site to see if they can hold it longer.


After the pickup window, shares are donated.


please note: we cannot replace forgotten boxes




what if I am in quarantine?

please DO NOT come to pickup sick or if you think you may be exposed


see if any of the typical switcheroo options (above) work for you! Having a friend bring your share is a great way to fill your fridge in a last-minute quarantine


If those options don't work for you we may be able to make arrangements for temporary home delivery. Please note:

  - within City of Ithaca or Village of T-burg limits only

  - available for veggies and fruit only. no other side dish delivery

  - there is a small weekly fee

  - to deliver on Thursday you must be in communication by Tuesday

email Molly if you need temporary delivery, please include your address!
