Vegetable Box Pick-Up Logistics

Season Pass members will receive 22 weeks of vegetables, with our start date being June 21st and the last pick up on November 15th. Bi-weekly shareholders will receive their first box on June 21st and then every second week thereafter.

The location of the pick-up will be at the farm (1491 Cherry Ln, West Lafayette) every Friday between 4 pm and 6 pm. When picking up the box, we will ask your name to check off a list and then put the box wherever you would like in your vehicle. A contact-free pick-up is an option. Just let us know in advance. If there are weeks when you are not able to pick up your box, you are welcome to send someone else to grab your box, or we can donate it to ACE Food Pantry. Alert the farm manager by sending an email to studentfarm@purdue.edu before the pick-up date of that particular week.

The composition of vegetables in the box will change throughout the season, so please be aware that we will not always have the same produce every week, and at times, we could have crop failures, even if they are unlikely. The first few weeks and likely the last couple weeks of the season will be greens-heavy and probably a little lighter on value, but for many of the boxes mid-season, we will be able to make up for those early/late weeks. Expect a weekly email about the composition of the vegetable box.

We want to thank you all for participating this year and look forward to seeing everyone! If you have any questions or issues, please reach out to the farm manager Chris Adair.
