Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some commonly asked questions about Prescott College's Community Supported Agriculture. The hows, the where, when and why. Please feel free to contact us if cannot find what you like to know more about.
Q: How much produce can I expect in a week?
Two share sizes are available: full (average of 8 items, good for 2+ veggie-loving students or for households) and partial (average of 4 items, good for single students, available for Prescott College community only). Varieties include tomatoes, peppers and other summer vegetables, broccoli and other brassicas, spinach, kale and other cooking greens, beets, carrots and other root veggies, salad mix, herbs, and citrus.
Q: I am interested in the beef option. How does it work?
The beef option averages 16-18 lbs. of free-range meat from Orme Ranch, a conscientious rancher near Dewey, AZ. It comes all at once, precut, labeled and frozen, every fall and spring.
Q: I am ready to become a shareholder, what do I do now?
You can find the application on this website, or contact email@example.com or 928/350.1401 to receive one by mail or email. Return the completed form with your payment to: PCCSA, 220 Grove Ave., Prescott, AZ 86301. (Make checks payable to Prescott College, and note CSA in the memo)
Q: What are the dates for the share seasons?
The Prescott College share is available for the entire academic year. The Prescott community share is available November through mid-May. Please return contacts at least one month before you wish to start
Q: What happens to my food if I forget to pick it up on Wednesday?
If you are unable to pick up your food, call 928/350.1401 before Wednesday and your share will be bagged for later pick up. Shares are stored at the CSA until Fridya afternoon when they are donated to a community service group. If you are unavailable during any week, you can have a friend collect it and enjoy the bounty. If you have forgotten your share, please call to check on availability.
Q: What if I can’t pay the entire amount up front?
Payment plans are available with $175 deposit and monthly payments thereafter. Please arrange payment plans with coordinator. We also accept credit cards.
Q: What if I will be gone some weeks during the season?
You can decide what happens to your share. Many people have friends pick it up and enjoy the bounty while you are out of town, or you could donate it. We will see that it goes to a community service group that provides meals to those in need.
Q: When do I pick up my food, where and what are the hours?
The CSA pick-up is every Wednesday from 12:30–5:45 p.m. The distribution room is in the Prescott College Bookstore & CSA at 371 Garden St. in Prescott.
