You can easily shop for the items you like and those items will be ready for pickup at your next farmers market. We currently only accept cards for online orders. Its the easiest way to get fresh, local produce. Most items are available at the time of order, and some items are pre-order only. Please read the ordering info on each product page.
To purchase a ValleyBox CSA, fill out the form on the product page and checkout. We will contact you by phone or email to fill out our contract, and send a payment authorization form if needed for 4 payment memberships (when available). We will also send you a membership card and a list of pickup times and locations. Most pickups around Fremont County will be on Tuesdays, with pickup in Riverton on Wednesdays and Dubois on Thursdays. After some markets have ended for the season, pickup times and locations may change in Riverton, Lander, and Casper. If you have any questions about ValleyBox, send us a message and we will be happy to answer them for you.
If you would prefer to pay by check, send us a message and request a registration form that you can print and send back with payment. Once signup and payment are complete, we will send you all of your membership information. All payment information for automatic payments (if required) will be stored securely in Square's POS system.
These are products we regularly stock in our cooler. They are fruit as well as items that we grow and process. These items are ready within 24-48 hours of ordering. Please order at least 2 days before your next farmers market so we can make sure we have your items ready for you.
Once your order is ready, most times you can pick your items up at the farmers markets or our roadside stands. Other times we will meet you at a time and place that's convenient.
Items requiring pre-order will be available for pickup the following week after ordering, but sometimes sooner. We will notify you when your order is ready to pick up. Note that some out of area items are not available for pickup at the local markets and pickup times will need to be arranged.
Yes. Once you place your order, your items must be picked up at the next available time. Often we will purchase fruit only by what's ordered. For this reason, we are unable to cancel most orders. We also understand life happens. If there are extreme circumstances, please reach out to us with your order number and we may be able to cancel your order or postpone order pickup.
At this time, our items are limited to local pickup and delivery only. We look forward to being able to ship some items to Wyoming addresses in the near future.
Yes! If you can't make it, just send us a message prior to your pickup time and let us know who will be picking your order up.
The Wyoming Food Freedom Act was created by the state legislature in 2015, and allows a wide range of homemade food products to be sold in Wyoming. It opened the door for huge growth in local food communities and jumpstarted many small food businesses you see around the state today. The Act has been expanded twice. Under the act, you can purchase anything from home grown chicken and eggs, to salsa, jelly, pickles, even home-canned homemade soups! We believe in a local food system and we are glad to see small food businesses thrive under the Wyoming Food Freedom Act.
This is very complex. While we are considered a conventional grower, we try to remain as close to natural as possible. We rarely use any topical pesticides on our plants, however we do occasionally use treated seeds. These seed treatments and coatings allow us to plant earlier in cool, wet soil without the danger of pests and fungi destroying the seeds. This year we will be implementing a beneficial insect program in our sweet corn field to combat earworms. Tiny wasps prey on the eggs to provide you fine ears of corn, free from any insect damage. The worst thing is shucking an ear of corn and finding a worm! For feeding, we use a combination of synthetic and natural fertilizers. For example, we use our own composted cow manure on all of our fields. In addition, we use oyster shell and epsom salts for calcium and magnesium for our plants. Our sweet corn gets two rounds of nitrogen, while also utilizing the nutrients provided by the past year's crop, for example a field just rotated out of alfalfa. While growing in the greenhouse, our plants get natural minerals and organic slow release fertilizers mixed in with our soil, as well as regular foliar feedings with synthetic fertilizers to keep plants healthy and thriving prior to transplant. Just like us, our plants need nutrients to grow and survive, and we like to feed them well. We are always 100% transparent in how we grow and what we use and are happy to answer any questions.
The fruit orchards have their own similar management programs, while some use all OMRI listed products and natural practices.
