Some Questions Answered
Where do you deliver?
Currently I deliver within a roughly 8-mile radius in Gallatin Valley that includes most of Bozeman, Belgrade, Four Corners, and Gallatin Gateway. Locations must be accessible with 2-wheel drive! See this map of the Delivery Zone.
What if I'm not in the Delivery Zone?
Pick up is possible, but options are limited. Please contact me to discuss first.
I will also consider including another community for delivery if 5 or more households are subscribed. Again, please contact me first!
What if I have a food allergy?
I offer vegetarian and gluten-free substitutions at no extra cost - simply select your food preference at checkout. I can accommodate some allergies/intolerances/aversions on a case-by-case basis. Please contact me to find out if I can accommodate your needs before signing up. I cannot provide vegan subscriptions at this time.
Can I pause my subscription while I'm gone?
Sure thing! The Renewable subscription makes it easy to take a break from deliveries without paying for them. Simply let me know by Saturday that you want to skip the week ahead (or however many weeks you want to pause). After Saturday, you will be charged for the next delivery because items will have already been ordered on your behalf. At this point, you can either donate it to the food bank, or gift it to another person within the Delivery Zone.
The Seasonable and Giftable subscriptions can also be paused by Saturday without penalty. Skipped deliveries will be accrued as credits for future use.
Is everything organic?
Nope! Some things are, some aren't. I strive to buy foods from producers who farm and ranch responsibly. Most people do a dang good job because their livelihoods depend on healthy soils, healthy animals, and clean water. Not everyone can afford organic certification, and this doesn't mean their food isn't worthy of consumption. The focus here is local, not organic. Fewer miles travelled, fewer hands passed through, fresh as all get-out.
Can I customize my subscription?
Not really. I have mad respect for customizable subscriptions, but this isn't one of them. See "Food Allergies" above.
Farm Cart subscriptions are meant to introduce you to all kinds of local foods - including things you wouldn't normally buy. Some customers like to check it out for a few months, and then they move on once they know what's hip and where to get it. Others choose to "set-it-and-forget-it" because it's pretty dang convenient when you don't have to make any decisions or remember to log in and food just shows up!
If you like shows like Chopped or Iron Chef, you'll love Farm Cart!
How to Choose a Start Date
Once you select the subscription you wish to purchase, your screen will look something like the image to the left (or below on mobile). The area to choose a start date is circled in red. Fill that part out, along with any other pertinent information, and proceed to payment. For the Renewable subscription, your next charge will occur the week following your chosen start date.
