If you can't make it please send a friend. Any food leftover at the end of the Wednesday pickup will be donated to volunteers and local "families in need". Thank you for your understanding!
What to expect at pickup this year...
Pick up will be "market style" where CSA members will be packing their own shares. Please bring your own tote bags, boxes or coolers. We will provide produce bags.
What do I need to bring for CSA pickup?
Many of our members bring a market tote bag, a box or a cooler to pack their veggies. We will provide biodegradable produce bags, but feel free to bring your own as well.
What happens if I miss my pick-up? Can I pick up my box at the farm or the farmer's market? If you are not going to be able to make it to pick up your share, it is best to have a friend or relative pick it up for you. Unclaimed shares will be donated to Lift Up at 6:00pm on Thursday.
Unfortunately, we do not give replacement shares if you come late or miss a pickup. Your share was harvested already and then donated to Lift-Up. There will be no CSA pickups permitted after Thursday.
Can I request substitutions in my box?
We are not able to do substitutions in our CSA shares.
What Steamboat Locals are Saying...
Bee Grateful Farms pours love into their produce, they genuinely care about the quality of their product! Their arugula is out of this world, spicy yet delicate. You've never had a snap pea with as much snap, and their tomatoes are delectable. I cannot wait for harvest time this year!
Love all the Fresh organic produce from Bee Grateful Farms!! Jason and Hethir Really care and know what they are doing !! Looking forward to this years CSA and seeing them at the farmers market!!
YUM - BeeGrateful Farm knows how to grow vegetables! Their arugula is mouthwatering and their tomatoes are juicy. Your salads' won't disappoint!
I am writing a review of your delicious always fresh and tender organic greens that I can’t wait to purchase as soon as the summer harvest starts. It’s great to finally have a local farm with a local hard working family that cares about nutrition and healthful eating. Your produce is always exceptionally flavorful.
These are hands down the freshest veggies in the valley!! I stock up every week at the farmers market and they stay delicious and crunchy through the week!
I find Bee Grateful's vegetables and greens to be consistent, flavorful, and rich in texture. I always search out their food, including restaurants that buy their products. I encourage everyone to enjoy their good food!
Bee Grateful Farms has been nothing short of amazing. The D'avignon radishes are a staple in my kitchen during the summer. They bring such a beautiful crunch and unique flavor to any dish. The baby arugula is another favorite of mine. Hearty enough to withstand a busy restaurant, it also delivers notes of pepper that I have never tasted in Arugula. I look forward to the new and exciting products to come as the farm continues to grow.
