Group Pickup

Organize with a local group to pickup your farm food.

A pickup group is a community of people collectively organizing pick up from the farm. They cooperate to bring the group’s orders to a central pickup location (a member’s home or business). Each pickup group is organized by a volunteer group leader, who helps to facilitate each pick up.

Pickup schedules are weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly depending on your group. Pickup rates vary for each group.

*You will receive the exact address, pickup times, and any other information pertinent to pickup via email after you place your order.

Commonly Asked Questions

What is a pickup group?

A pickup group is a community of people collectively organizing pick up from the farm. They cooperate to bring the group’s orders to a central pickup location (a member’s home or business). Each pickup group is organized by a volunteer group leader, who helps to facilitate each pick up.

How do pickup days work?

Arrive at the pickup location during your scheduled time window. We have a self-service system. All you need to do is check all coolers and make sure you take all of your food.

What should I bring on pickup day?

We encourage you to bring a copy of your order’s confirmation email or have it accessible on your phone. We suggest that you bring bags to carry your items. You will not need a cooler unless you are traveling more than an hour.

How is my order packaged?

Your items will be packed in big coolers, with plenty of ice or ice packs to keep it fresh on the way to you. Milk containers will be loose. Fresh and frozen items are bagged separately. All meat items come individually packaged and frozen.

Can a friend pick-up my order?

Yes, just be sure to fill them in on the pickup procedures and check your order when you receive it. Also, once you receive your order, please check it against your emailed receipt.

Can my group leader hold my order?

This is strongly discouraged because of the extra burden that it adds for our volunteer group leaders.

Can I return glass bottles and jars?

If your group’s order is packed in containers that go back to the farm, then you can return your glass. Put your clean glass in a bag and leave it in or next to a cooler when you pick up. We do not offer a refund for returned glass. First, this would be an administrative nightmare. Second, it takes a considerable amount of time to prep the glass for re-use and is not cost effective.

Can I start a group?

Yes, it’s possible. Send a note to hello@amishbiofarm.com to find out more.
