Driftless Organics CSA FAQs
What’s the difference between your Every-Week Share and the Every-Other-Week Share?
The Every-Week Share is a full sized box delivered once a week and is a total of 20 boxes. The Every-Other-Week Share is the same sized box, only delivered every other week for a total of 10 boxes. People have found that this option is a great introduction to the CSA program. It is a very manageable amount of produce that can easily be eaten over the course of 2 weeks. READ MORE HERE.
What are the prices of your Shares?

How long does your CSA go for?
We have a 20 week CSA season that runs from the first week of June until the last week of October. In addition, you can purchase season extenstion shares and storage boxes, with delivery options all the way through January! LEARN MORE ABOUT IT HERE.
How many people does a share feed?
This is a TOUGH question, and it really depends on your eating habits. Do you fix a lot of your own meals? Are you a vegetarian or do you incorporate vegetables into most of your meals? A full share will feed a family of four who have ‘normal’ veggie eating habits. CHECK OUT WHAT’S IN A BOX.
Where do you deliver and on what days?
We head up to the Twin Cities every Thursday and deliver CSA boxes in the afternoon. We have 10 sites in the Twin Cities area to choose from. CHECK THEM OUT HERE. We then head into Madison every Saturday to sell vegetables at our Market Stand also deliver CSA boxes to 6 different delivery sites. CHECK ‘EM OUT HERE. We also have a local route and you can always pick up your CSA box at the farm. For a full list of our pick up sites, CLICK HERE.
What if I go on vacation and can’t pick up my box?
If you are an Every-Other-Week share holder and can’t pick up your box, you can simply let us know and we will switch you to a week that works for you (this is a perk that makes us a truly unique CSA farm). If you are an Every-Week Share holder, than we ask that you try to find someone to pick up your box or let us know and we can make sure your box makes it to a local food shelf. We also have FLEX PLAN shares, which allow you to schedule your own delivery weeks. LEARN MORE HERE or GO AHEAD AND RESCHEDULE A BOX.
Do you offer a half-sized or mini box?
We don’t. We have found that half share holders just miss out on too many of the great veggies we have to offer. For folks that feel a full share is too much to eat, we suggest the Every-Other-Week box.
Do you offer any sort of payment plan?
You can either pay for the whole amount up front or pay half upon sign up and the remaining half on July 1st.
How does the HMO rebate thing work?
If you are a CSA member who lives in the Madison area and belong to one of a couple participating health insurance providers, you may be eligible for a rebate on your CSA share. LEARN MORE ABOUT IT.
Can we come for a visit?
You sure can! We welcome visits and will happily give you a tour of our farm. We also have a Harvest Party every fall and all CSA members are invited! CHECK OUT AN VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE FARM.
Are you certified organic?
We most certainly are, and have been since 1992. We are certified through Quality Certification Services. LEARN MORE ABOUT THEM HERE.
How do I order?
We thought you’d never ask!
