Summer Produce Boxes


Because there are not enough students to run a full Farm Stand during the summer, the Farm runs a produce box program during the summer months. Our program is modeled after a CSA, (“Community Supported Agriculture”) where customers pay for a “share” of the farm and receive a percentage of whatever is grown, depending on what is in season and available. Due to limited produce supply, this program is currently available only to Pomona College faculty and staff.

Participation in the Farm’s produce box program is week-to-week (but you can order multiple weeks in advance). Sign up is first-come, first-served, but orders are not confirmed until payment has been received. If you sign up and then decide you would like additional weeks, simply fill out another form. If you sign up and then realize you need to cancel some or all of the dates, just e-mail at least 48 hours in advance of the pick-up date.

Payment is $10 per box and must be received by Monday at 5pm on the week of your box pickup or your order will be cancelled. Please pay with cash or check (written out to “Pomona College –  Farm”) delivered via campus mail or dropped off in the folder at PO Seeley Mudd 130B. You can also pre-pay online using the link below. Once payment is received, refunds will only be made in the event that we are not able to create a produce box for you.

Pick up your box from the West Farm picnic tables outside of the Earth Dome on Wednesday mornings between 9am and 11am. Boxes will be premade, but there will be some flexibility for adding or removing certain items (depending on supply and demand). This summer, you can expect carrots, chard, flowers, multi-color beans, summer squash, spicy and sweet peppers, eggplant, potatoes, tomatoes, basil, onions, garlic, wild spinach greens, peaches, culinary herbs, and more.
