How it works:

Weekly boxes of produce will be available for pick-up on once a week, for 17 weeks in a row. Pick-up day is on Tuesday ( June 11 - Oct. 1) or Friday (June 14 - Oct. 4). You must choose one pick up day and adhere to that for the season. This ensures your produce is packed fresh for you. We cannot hold your box in our limited cold storage space.
Pick-up will be at Lindley’s Farm Market from 12 noon to 6 pm.

Each weekly box includes at least one item of fruit including Lindley strawberries in season.

Seasonal availability, planting/harvest times and weather patterns will affect what fruit and vegetables are in boxes each week. We will attempt to put as many items grown on our farm into boxes, but we may have to supplement with produce from local farm friends.
