Will I have to buy vegetables I don't want?
Unlike some CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with Fresh Harvest you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, and there is no obligation to buy. The weekly email lists the produce, fresh flowers, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
How do I order?
Each Sunday evening, a list of available products is sent to all of our registered customers by e-mail. Customers must place their order for the week no later than Tuesday night. Orders can be placed here on our website or by responding directly to the e-mail. We prefer that you order through this web site, as it is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes us to process orders as well as provide you with detailed information about our products.
When do I pay?
We ask for a deposit of $50.00 when you sign up with us. This acts as credit for your account, and all orders are deducted from it. When you run out of money in your account, you can simply put down another deposit. We accept cash or checks when you pick up your order, or you can send us your deposit in the mail.
Please mail deposits to:
Fresh Harvest, LLC
3514 Gray Lane
Thompsons Station, TN 37179
You can also pay through Pay Pal on the “Your Account” page of this website.
When and Where do I pick up my order?
We deliver on Wednesday from 3 to 6 p.m. to Trinity Presbyterian Church on Sharondale and Hillsboro Rd. in Green HIlls. We are in the lawn of the lower parking lot. Look for a white van or Suburban.
Why Support Locally Grown?
Enhance your local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.
Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.
We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
What is your season?
Our goal is to deliver year round. There may be a week that we will take off due to a holiday or to winter weather.
Can I visit your farms?
We welcome visitors to our farms. Please let us know if you are interested and we can make arrangements. Please understand that during the growing season, we are very busy and can not always accomodate visitors.
