F.A.Q.


How does it work?
Being a Hood River Organic CSA member is easy!  Here’s how it works:

You can join at any time since we are a year-round CSA.  Create an account here, sign up to pay as you go or prepay for 10 boxes and automatically receive a 10% discount.  Once you’ve chosen your subscription you’ll choose a delivery frequency of weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.  Next you’ll choose from a convenient pick-up location or home delivery.

What is in a box?
We have four (4) different CSA box sizes:

  • Micro-Sprout (feeds 1-2 people)
  • Sprout (feeds 1-3 people)
  • Farmers (feeds 2-3 people)
  • Grande (feeds 3-5 people)

Each box has standard items depending on what is available from our farming partners that time of year.  That being said, you can customize your box to suit your taste.  If you don’t like beets swap them out for something you do like.  So the question “What is in a box?” is really up to you.  To learn more about customization please check out our “How do you customize?” section below.  Here are some examples of packing lists for our Sprout and Grande-sized CSA boxes:

Where do you deliver?
There are two different options, pick-up and delivery.  You may choose from our many convenient pickup locations.  (Please allow us until 3:00 PM for all pick-up locations.)  Or for a $4.95 fee you can get the box dropped off right at your doorstep.  Just check out our map and see if you are in our delivery zone
How do I put a hold on my box?
Hop on over to your account and you will see a grey “Hold” button.  Please click the button before Monday 10:00 am the week of your delivery in order to process this request.  If you wish to put your box on hold for multiple weeks, please contact us at csa@hoodriverorganic.com and we can assist you.
How to sign up with Snap benefits.
To sign up using your SNAP card please call us at 541-354-2111 or visit this page and fill out the form completely.  We will then set up the account and contact you with your login and password. 
How do I customize?

Customization emails are sent out on Friday afternoons (usually by 3:00 pm but sometimes a little later).

The Friday before your box’s scheduled delivery you’ll receive an email alerting you that it is time to customize your box.  Next, log into your account and click on “box schedule and contents.” Click on the day you are to receive your box on the calendar.  Then click on the up or down icon to add or remove items from your box.  You can see a full explanation here.

How do I cancel my account?
All you need to do is email us at csa@hoodriverorganic.com with a request to cancel your subscription.  Please cancel at least 1 week prior to your next delivery, since we are a farm and typically plan one week ahead.
