FAQ's for our Flower CSA
What's the difference between a bouquet share and the designer share?
The Bouquet share is already assembled and arranged and ready to be unbanded, trimmed and slipped into your favorite vase. The Designer share is an abundant amount of loose stems in a bucket, with some specialty bits we aren't able to tuck into bouquets. This share is targeting the flower lover who is excited to explore floral design a little more deeply. We will offer a free group class at the farm during the first pickup and a vase at the start of each share season to help members with technique.
I'm going on vacation, can I make up the share another week?
We're sorry but this is not an option. The planting and harvest season is planned out in advance, along with labor. Consider offering your share to a neighbor or friend on a week when you will be away.
I need some extra flowers, is this possible?
Yes! We can always add on to your CSA delivery each week. Just send us an email or give us a call prior to the morning of your CSA pickup day and we can make plans to have extra flowers for you.
I can't make it for my scheduled TUESDAY pick-up. Can I come another day?
If you have chosen to collect your share at one of our partner locations, you will need to stick to agreed upon day and time window for pick-up. If you have chosen the farm as your pick-up location, we are able to hold your CSA bouquet for one additional day.
What is that flower that was in my bouquet last week?
Wondering what a certain bloom is? Take a photo, text or email it to us and we'll let you know.
What does being a CSA member mean?
We're all in this together! John and Stacy have run a successful produce CSA for 15 years and a Flower CSA for 10. As a CSA member at Broadturn Farm, you agree to support the farm's endeavor to provide local, sustainably grown flowers for the community by investing in our operation in the months when cash flow is the leanest. You offer your support of our farm and your commitment to enjoy its lush flowers by purchasing a season of goodness.
When will my share begin?
Start dates are always dependent on the progress of spring. We will let you know the exact date within a week of our first CSA distribution.
How can we keep in touch?
Broadturn Farm actively maintains an Instagram feed and a Facebook Page that we regularly update. In addition, all CSA members will be emailed with announcements pertaining to the distribution of the flower shares. You can call or email us anytime with questions or concerns.
How do I sign up?
Choose which share you want from our Flower CSA shop and then complete the registration and payment on-line.
What if I want to give a share as a gift?
You get a gold star for being AWESOME! There is the option of selecting the share as a gift when you register and purchase the share in our shop.
