Order form for Saturday ARTfarm Produce Boxes 4/11/20, Maskquerade

Hey farm supporters. Happy Passover and Easter holidays. We are hopping around the farm pumping out some more food for you guys during the COVID-19 weirdness. The pickups are smooth, and we appreciate everyone who has been consistently maintaining at least 10-15 feet of distance, wearing masks to keep each other safe, and being patient with us and each other. We thank you for maintaining physical distance, as do all the medical professionals in the territory. We are doing great flattening the curve! Keep it up!

Once again we will NOT BE OPEN for retail shopping on Saturday. For the rest of this season we are going to run socially distanced online ‘box sales’ like we did the last four weeks, with pre-reserved pick up shifts of 10 people max, to slow the spread of novel coronavirus in our island community. We want to avoid long waits, traffic issues and crowds forming. We encourage everyone picking up a box to wear a mask, and we will do the same. Hide those cute twitchy little noses. Extra style points if you also wear bunny ears.

Spread love but not coronavirus! Make sure you get outside! New gardening classes and info for Victory Gardens, soon come!!

Getting a farm share box is as easy as S-A-N, as in SAN-sational!! Here’s what to do:

  1.   S  is for :  Sign up with our sign-up form (a link at the bottom of the weekly signup page is posted on Fridays, usually by 10am).
    • Choose one pre-selected, pre-priced box of ARTfarm produce (contents listed below)
    • Choose any add-on items (limited supplies)
    • Commit to a pick-up time slot
  2.   A is for :  Arrive on Saturday at (or wait in your car until) your appointed time in the ARTfarm parking lot on Saturday. Too many people showing up at the same time could risk exposure. Please maintain plenty of space between customers, and between us and you when you approach the pickup table. We’ll be wearing masks as an extra precaution.
    • Bring exact change or a check to drop in the bucket – we are not handling any money.
    • Bring your own bags or box to put your produce into. We’ll place your items on the sanitized table, some things will be pre-bagged, you’ll pack your own bags or box for the rest.
  3.   N is for :  No substitutions or price adjustments. To maintain sanitation and keep things moving, we are not swapping items, handling payments or making change.
    • We’ll do our best to give you options at pickup if we can, to meet or exceed the value.
    • If desired, you can leave any unwanted items from your share on the table and we will pass them on to another lucky customer!

We will have 16 large and 30 small ‘farmshares’ of produce available (a few of those available as “double small” orders). You can also order and specify a neighbor, friend or family member to pick up your order. And if you are a small family and it works for you, consider alternating between large and small from week to week to give others a shot at ordering a large box.

Please contact us immediately by text and phone if you have reserved a farmshare and cannot pick it up. Supply is limited, demand is extremely high and someone else will gladly purchase your share, if given enough time to respond. We have limited time for distributions and they are scheduled. We will hold your box for you and we expect to hear from you. We understand life happens, but please do not leave us hanging, waiting for you, with your food! Our produce is harvested fresh and needs to go home with you same day. This is an honor system since we are not collecting payment until pickup.

  • Rosemary
  • Lemongrass

*We suggest bringing a few small bills, or a check and a pen, to the distribution, as there may be some extras available at the last minute beyond what we predicted. We are not making change!!!

  • This signup form will show you a Thank You page and send you a confirmation email if submitted successfully. One order per customer, please.
  • Three people reported having problems with the online signup form telling them incorrectly that they had already placed an order. It’s an overzealous security feature to prevent multiple orders from the same customer. Workarounds our customers figured out (thank you!!) were to
    • just try again
    • use a cellular device (smartphone or tablet) that isn’t using WiFi internet
    • clear your cache and cookies in your browser/device
    • reboot your router (unplug it for a minute and plug in again)
  • We are asking that people ration, by not allowing any one customer to purchase all of one extra. Sharing is caring. If we have extra, we’ll do our best to let you know.
  • This signup form does NOT sign you up for a farm email subscription.

  1. Please put a reminder to turn off the WiFi button! I forgot until it gave me a message.
    Really appreciate all your efforts
