Q: HOW DO I MODIFY MY WEEKLY BOX?
A: Your weekly standard box is totally customizable. Click on the link that shows you how to modify a standard box
Important note: 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. You WILL receive an email detailing your order. If you DON'T receive an email, your order customization DID NOT get saved.
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 content changes. We will do our best to communicate ahead of changes, but sometimes this isn't possible.
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 deliver 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: HOW IS LOCAL PUMPKIN SERVICE DIFFERENT THAN A CSA?
A: Along with supporting local farms, we deliver 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 $24.00 of produce. Add-ons like meat and eggs, do not count as part of the minimum order.

A: We ask that you leave the previous week’s empty box on your doorstep the following delivery day so we can reuse it.

If you make changes between the cut off and delivery day, the changes will not be applied until the following week.
