Check out the answers to some of the questions we hear the most by browsing the tabs below.
What is The Farmstead?
The Farmstead is a family-owned small vegetable farm located just 2 miles down the road from Lake Geneva Country Meats. Founded in 2018, The Farmstead has a focus on sustainably growing fresh, healthy produce & relationships, sharing with our neighbors, and bringing glory to God. The Farmstead offers their produce via a seasonal CSA program, at local farmers markets, and now, at Lake Geneva Country Meats! It’s a pleasure to work with Vijay and Beth, and we’re super excited to have the opportunity to share their delicious produce products with you.
What will I get in each box?
The contents of each box will vary based on seasonal availability. We hope to offer you some familiar vegetables, and some not so familiar vegetables. Some weeks will have more options than other, but that’s the beauty of seasonal produce. Please see below for a sample schedule of available items.
How do I order a Garden Box?
Each Monday, we will publish what is in each week’s box on this page. If you are interested in that week’s box, fill out the order form before 4:00 PM on Wednesday. We’ll have your box ready for you to pick up on your choice of the Saturday, Sunday, or Monday following your order date. Remember, you must purchase Garden Box credits online to get your box!
Why do I have to pre-buy credits?
Due to the perishable nature of the produce, we ask that you commit to purchasing these products before they are picked. By pre-buying credits, we are able to guarantee income to The Farmstead, and help them grow their business, and support small, local agriculture.
Can I buy multiple boxes in a week?
Definitely! Just let us know how many boxes you would like in the order form.
Any fine print I should know about?
A few things:
- All dates are subject to change, based on weather. This is Wisconsin, and we can’t control the weather. This means the start and / or end of the growing season may be earlier or later than initially expected.
- There are no refunds on credits or unclaimed produce. We will donate unclaimed produce, and the value of unused credits to local food pantries.
- We cannot guarantee what is in each box, and you cannot make any substitutions. Enjoy discovering and cooking with new items!
