ARTfarm Salad Greens Thursday 7/29/2021, Preorders 5-6pm: Reserve your pickup slot!

Man oh man, this pandemic keeps on spiking. We’ve got healthy fresh foods from ARTfarm to share for tomorrow, but decided for your safety and ours, to go back to pandemic preorders with scheduled customer pickup timeslots this week as Governor Bryan has requested no mass gatherings.

Summer salad greens at ARTfarm. A miracle in the desert, basically.

This keeps us down to a more relaxed ten people in the parking lot at a time. So click the link at the bottom to reserve your pickup time and items, and check for your confirmation email before hitting the road… Please wear your mask and keep plenty of social distance at pickup!

Luca harvested some beautiful lettuce this week thanks to careful late night watering, and the lovely but brief rainshowers and thunderstorms crossing the area recently. Thursday afternoon we’ll start distributions for 30 customers at 5pm with summer bounty: plentiful SALAD MIX!!! and tons of mangoes, including Mallika mangoes from Farmer Alex at Tropical Exotics. Alex’s sweet and juicy Mallika mangoes feature THE MOST MANGO PER MANGO due to the flattest bone (mango pit) you have ever seen!

Mallika mangoes are big and fat with a minimal pit. YUM!

From our fruit trees we will have Nam doc Mai and Haitian Kidney mangoes, a few pomegranates, and dragonfruit. Also herbs: garlic chives, kaffir leaves, lemongrass, white/mango/super turmeric, pineapple slips and lots of farm fresh eggs from Mongoose&Zinnia: our daughter’s happy pastured chicken business for her college fund.

We’ve also got lots of beautiful fresh turmerics to add to your dishes and smoothies and health tonics; to make golden milk (great with non-dairy milks too); grate into dishes and add gorgeous color and flavor plus health benefits to sauces.

Please contact us immediately by text and phone at (340)514-4873 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. 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. We do not have cold storage for uncollected shares.

The signup form will show you a “Thank You” page and send you a confirmation email if submitted successfully. If you don’t find it, please check your spam/junk, inbox tabs, and ‘all mail’ folders for the confirmation email, as this has been a common problem for several customers and with a little searching they typically find it. For more tips, visit our Help page.

Q: I can’t seem to order more than one item.

A: We have designed our order form not to allow any one customer to purchase all of one extra. Sharing is caring. If you’d like extra of something (beyond what you could reserve through our order system), put it in the comments with your order, and remind us at your pickup time: if we can supply it to you we’ll do our best. If you are in the food service industry and looking for bulk availability, please contact us; our order form is for individuals and families to place a single order for a scheduled pickup.

Q: My order isn’t going through.
  • if the automated confirmation email is not immediately found, check your spam folder
  • and the ‘all mail’ folder
  • make sure all required fields are filled/selected
  • just try again
  • use a cellular device (smartphone or tablet) that isn’t using WiFi internet
  • restart your browser/device
  • clear your cache and cookies in your browser/device
  • reboot your router (unplug it for a minute and plug in again)
  • visit our “help” page for additional tips
Q: The form says I didn’t enter my email, but I did.

Our pre-order form requires everyone to type their email in twice, and makes sure the two match exactly. We had a lot of customers in such a rush to get their order in that they’d spell their own email incorrectly and then complain that they could not find the confirmation email. Our ‘type it in twice’ system ensures that you’ll find any email mistakes before you submit the pre-order form.

Q: I ordered before, but I’m not getting your emails.

Our pre-order form does NOT automatically sign you up for an ARTfarm email subscription. Do that HERE!

      “…all the advice we have to give on the topic is below, so you’re better off saving time by just following these steps:

      • double check the date on the form/link you are attempting to use

      • search for an email from ‘noreply@jotform.com’
      • set up a filter in your email program to catch ARTfarm emails, and set it to check all your mail including the old stuff – if you don’t know how, ask a techy friend or Google it, it’s different for everyone’s individual email program
      • revisit the form and make sure all required fields are filled/selected
      • make sure your email was typed in twice (CORRECTLY!) on the form
      • just try again
