FREQUESTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: WHAT IF I WILL NOT BE HOME WHEN MY BOX IS DELIVERED?
A: Leave a cooler with ice packs or ice in sealed bags (during hot weather) on your doorstep. Even during colder weather, it is good to have protection for the produce. The cooler should be big enough for our box to fit in. A 19.5 in. x 12 in. x 7.5 in., or a 120quart cooler works great. This will keep your produce fresh and protected.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR DELIVERY AREA?
A: We currently delivery in the Tri-Cities area. If you live outside the Tri-Cities but work in the Tri-Cities we can delivery to your office. We also have two pick up locations: Pasco and Benton City.
Q: IS EVERYTHING CERTIFIED ORGANIC?
A: Most of the produce is certified organic, the non-certified produce has been grown with clean farming practices (no pesticides, soil building farming practices). We focus on local produce, that is vine-ripened, and small family-owned farms.
We do supplement with some Certified Organic regional and US items including citrus in the winter months.
Q: WHEN IS THE STORE OPEN?
A: The store is closed two days before your delivery day until you receive and email on Friday afternoon. The email will show you what is in your box for the next week. Do nothing if you like what is in your box or go in and make changes to your box for the upcoming week and add other items from the store.
On the LocalPumpkin.com website, there is an icon at the top left that says "Weekly Menu" it shows what is in each box in the coming week.
Q: HOW DO I MAKE SURE MY CHANGES TO MY DELIVERY WERE SAVED?
A: After you have made changes to your box, click on “Checkout” from your Cart, it will take you to “Finalize Your Order” screen. This screen displays your entire order including add-ons. If everything looks good, click on “Place Order” and you're done. There is a “back to store” button if you still want to make changes. You will receive an email detailing your order.
Q: HOW IS LOCAL PUMPKIN SERVICE DIFFERENT THAN A CSA?
A: Along with supporting local farms, we delivery right to your door! We offer variety, flexibility and year-round service that most traditional Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs can’t provide. Because we source from many different farms and small businesses, we can offer a wider variety of produce and other groceries. Unlike a CSA, we don’t bill you for a season up front, you can even just make one-time orders, and you can skip a delivery or change your delivery frequency as needed. You can also customize each delivery to suit the needs of you and your family.
Q: ARE THERE ANY FEES?
A: There are no fees to sign-up or to cancel. There is a minimum delivery order of $22.00 of produce. Add-ons like meat and eggs, do not count as part of minimum order.
Q: WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY EMPTY BOX?
A: We ask that you leave the previous week’s empty box on your doorstep the following delivery day so we can reuse it.
Q: HOW DO I MAKE CHANGES TO MY WEEKLY PRODUCE BOX?
A: You will receive a weekly email letting you know what is in your next weeks produce box. You can login to your account and it will allow you to make changes to your box content on your own and add items.
Note: Due to the nature of the weather's impact on produce availability, we reserve the right to make changes to what will be in your box. We will always include the same value in your box, but on occasion will need to make a judgment call to make changes. We will do our best to communicate ahead of changes, but sometimes this isn't possible.
