What is "vacation rescheduling"?
From time to time, members are unable to pick up their share because they are out of town. Our vacation reschedule program provides members an opportunity to reschedule up to 4 shares per calendar year. Using our member web-based organizer system, you can indicate the week you're unable to pick up (or unable to send a friend to pick up on your behalf), and select a future week (within the season) when you'd like to pick up 2 shares. You will also be able to switch your pick-up location.
VERY IMPORTANT: any changes to your week's share must be done by the Monday prior to your normal pick-up date. If you miss this window, your share will have been packed and we won't be able to honor your hold. Please keep in mind we harvest the exact amount for our members.

What happens if I can't pick up my share?
If you've missed the time window to place your share on vacation hold, or know that you will be late, you are welcome to send a friend to pick up your share on your behalf. Remind them to bring a bag(s). They'll either look for your name on the pick up list or give your name to the pick up attendant. If sending a friend isn't an option, or you've missed the pick up time-window, please know shares are donated and can't be picked up at a later time. We appreciate everyone's understanding.
