Directions To Your Site

This delivery site is near Guilford High School, south of the stoplight intersection of Spring Creek Road and Shaw Woods Drive.

From Spring Creek: Turn south at Shaw Woods. At the third street on the right, Roanoake Rd, turn right. This road will dead-end into Silverthorn. Turn right, and the house is on the immediate left with the green mailbox. It is a two-story beige house with white trim and a 3-car garage.

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!
