Frequently Asked Questions
Where do we source our produce from?
Santa Barbara County is blessed with an exceptional growing climate and talented local Organic growers. It is rare for us to go outside of the county for anything other than the seasonal delicacies that we eagerly await every year, ie. the delicious apples of the Cuyama Valley, succulent Delano grapes, and the mouth watering peaches of Tulare County. We only source the best Organic California grown produce from the best growers.
How does the subscription work?
You sign-up for a subscription of Certified Organic fruits and vegetables, delivered weekly or every other week delivered continually to a location
that you choose. We offer two size boxes; a large share and an essential share. Your credit card is charged 3 days before each delivery.
What is the Right Size Farm Box for me?
Our large farm box provides 7-10 types of organic fruits and vegetables and provides generously 3-4 people.
Our essential farm box provides 5-7 types of organic fruits and vegetables and provides generously 1-2 people.
How do I put a box on hold if I am going on a vacation?
Please go directly into your Farm Cart Organics account online, go to your box schedule, and put a hold on the dates you will be gone. OR gift your box to a family or friend. Help us spread the word about our farm boxes! And just a friendly reminder, the box deadline to make changes to your boxes is two days before your delivery date.
What if I Forget to Pick up my Farm Box?
Forgetting just happens, we all do it. You can find your drop sites phone number on our website and call to see if they still have your farm box. You may get lucky and it might still be there after drop time hours! However Farm Cart Organics is not responsible for forgotten boxes and your box may be donated after hours.
What do I do With my Empty Farm Box?
Re-using our boxes is the responsible thing to do and it helps keep our overhead low, which translates into keeping our prices low for you. In order to do this effectively, the boxes need to be returned. We encourage our members to bring their own bag when they pick up their box and to leave the box at the site.
