Urban Farm Membership FAQ
Is our Urban Farm Membership Right for YOUR Family?
Please take a few minutes to read the information below and see if this program is right for you. Our FAQ explains how the process works, and at the end is a great video on how to sign up.
Who is Urban Veg?
We are a small group of farmers who love eating and growing local produce for our family and yours. Nutrition, flavor, and hyper-local freshness are always at the top of our minds.
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA membership is a way to reconnect community to farmer. It is a relationship that is bonded through food that is grown locally to be used in your kitchen. A CSA is a partnership that you have with the farmer and the farmer has with you.
I am interested, what is typically in the box?
Depending on the size of box you get, it will always have seasonal veggies, salad bowls, and microgreens (baby greens).
Is there an option to order additional items?
Of course. When you sign up, you get to pick the size of Farm Share that you’d like (Small, Large, or Extra Large). Then you get to select your add-on items like eggs, artisan bread, gluten free bread, raw milk, coffee, and more.
How does this process work?
Click the signup button and it will redirect you to our partner website. (Harvie does all the back-end stuff so we can focus on growing the best produce for YOU!)
Select your share and your add-ons. Fill out the rest of the information and we will onboard you with a welcome email. A few days before your first delivery, we will email you to let you know whats in your box. At that time, you can swap items out and add items to completely customize your share.
How does payment work?
Harvie (our partner who does all of the back-end stuff) keeps your card on file securely, and will charge you on the day of delivery. No fuss, no headache!
How do we get the box?
Great question! We deliver it right to you! If you are gone for the day, we suggest leaving an ice chest with freezer packs to keep everything chilled.
How do I know if a CSA Membership is right for me?
Here is a link to 6 questions to ask yourself about how a CSA membership might work for you and your family. We want to make sure it’s a right fit for you!
Is your produce organic?
Absolutely it is! Organic farming is our commitment. Remember, some of the produce we grow ends up in our kitchen and on our family’s plates too!
Will you teach me how to use what’s in the box?
Yup, for sure! We walk our members through how to use everything in their box. We do this with our dynamic members-only email, our private Facebook group, and through Veggie U, our online learning library.
What are your prices?
We have Urban Farm Membership options starting at $30. Prices range on up to $75. Of course, you can always buy multiple shares and add-ons!
I can find cheaper stuff at HEB and Walmart. What gives?
Great question! We grow and harvest for you. Often we harvest the same day that we deliver. We also give you the tools to be a success with the items in your box, plus we give you many more perks throughout this journey.
We believe having a relationship with the farmer is key. Also, we believe in sustainability. Not only within the food we eat and our growing practices but we also believe in a fair, livable wage for the farmer. If you are price-shopping an Urban Farm Membership versus Walmart, this program will not be for you.
