Farm Happenings for October 15, 2020

Posted on October 12th, 2020 by Andrea McAdow

Saying this first so it doesn't get missed... Delivery people, please please please leave out a cooler or something for us to place your share into. If you were left one of our plastic totes last week please leave them out this week for our driver to pick up. We really want your produce to stay safe and fresh.

And now your regular programming...

This week our greens and roots are back in full force. We have a great crop of sweet spinach ready to harvest, TONS of baby kale, beautiful juicy hakurei turnips, and lots of spicy radishes. October is my very favorite month around here, especially when its 70s-80s and not 90-100.

I think you're going to love each and every last bite!


Some Housekeeping Items:

If this is your first delivery week... This week you will see a larger charge than normal on your card. It is the 25% of your total order plus 50% of the first box. PLEASE DON'T PANIC. The remaining charge each week will only be 50% of the remaining cost of your box for that week.

If you are not a weekly person, please double check that the email you are receiving is indeed for a scheduled box for this week. It will have a yellow"swap now" button. Harvie also sends out a farm stand pre-order email that can sometimes get confused with your regular share email.

Here is the help article on swapping out your share items. It goes over how to swap, when and why you may be charged for extras, and how to set your preferences.

I recommend checking out the Harvie University if you are getting hung up on anything or you can always email support at for specific website related questions or me on product related questions.

We do absolutely guarantee our products so if something is not up to par or missing, please do not hesitate to reach out so that we can make it right. Unfortunately, we are still human... working on that.

For Pick up, please come armed with your reuse-able bag to transfer your produce into, we will have extras if you forget though! Or you can try to balance everything in your arms, up to you ;)


We are committed to bringing you the freshest, most flavorful food possible. We are sourcing some products from Southern CA and AZ in addition to those grown on our farms. This will give you a good variety while still allowing you to support local farmers and small businesses.

We want to be as transparent as possible, you will see the source of each product located next to its name.

CA/AZ Organic - California grown and organic

Rosebird CNG - From Rosebird Farms in Kingman AZ, which is Certified Naturally Grown (Organic for little guys like us)

Kingman - From local Kingman farms using organic practices but not certified

If you are receiving a delivery for the week please leave a cooler with plenty of ice on your front porch. 

For farm stand orders: If you are paying with SNAP benefits please select "pay offline" you will need to pick up at West of Third as the government currently only allows us to accept payments at our brick and mortar location. Only fresh produce, dry beans, and dates qualify for the double up discounts. Other food items will still be eligible for SNAP but will not receive the 50% discount.


Thank you SO much for your continued support. We truly love delivering food that nourishes our bodies each week.
