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.
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.
