Be A Good Neighbor

  • Your site host is providing a very generous contribution to your community and to the farm by making this site available. Please make an extra effort to help keep this site clean and tidy.
  • Be sure to check off your name in the vegetable share check list, and in the fruit share check list if you are also signed up for a fruit share.
  • The swap box at your delivery site serves as a trading place--you leave items in the swap box that you don’t care for and trade for something you like. Remember to give others the chance to make a make a trade, too.
  • Be sure to flatten your empty vegetable box and stack it in the designated location for recycling.
  • Please recycle fruit boxes on your own; do not return them to your pickup site.
  • Do not open and rifle through the boxes. The boxes are packed as similarly as possible with great care at the farm.

Thank you!

Site Host Profile

We are the De La Paz family: Enrique, Susan and our wonderful boys. The guardians of our little nest are Josie (the Sheltie) and Roger Wee (the cat).

Angelic Organics was introduced to our family in 2014 and we became shareholders in 2015. We have been enamored with our box since our own little garden is used exclusively to grow many varieties of heirloom tomatoes. Our littlest guy has a corner of the garden to grow his peppers. Susan hopes to have some of her homemade salsa canned and is happy to share. If there is extra jarred salsa on the porch, please grab a jar!

Our little brick ranch is shaded by an enormous Magnolia. If you peek inside when picking up your box, you will likely see a dress form, mannequin heads, a giant steamer trunk and probably an indecent cat laying spread eagle on the floor (sorry). Susan is a collector and seller of all things vintage. Enrique loves eating pies and dinners in their pink 1950s kitchen. He is the best gentle giant and family man.
