Now Available: Bike Delivery For Your CSA Box
Now that we have more choices for a CSA than ever (stay tuned for The Local Beet’s 2011 Guide), a company is offering bike delivery of your CSA box to your home from the farm’s dropsite point (check out the picture of the cool bike trailer on their website). This service, called Loaded Bikes, is available throughout the year, and would be ideal for those seeking home delivery of a CSA that only offers generalized dropsites, or for those who cannot fit a dropsite pickup into their busy schedules. Beginning at $6/week (full-season rate), Loaded Bikes will deliver your CSA box to your house, and for a surcharge of $2 (depending on advanced notice), will deliver it on an ad-hoc weekly basis. And for $3 more per week or every other week, Loaded Bikes will pick up your compostable scraps, and deliver them to community gardens throughout the city.
