Pick up:

**We have adjusted back to our regular Pick-Up Hours from 9 AM – 12 PM at all locations.  Also, our Winter Location for Agricole Farm Stop HAS CHANGED back to our Summer Location, which is at the Chelsea Farmers Market (see below for details).

Pick up is every Saturday. Choose your pick up location:

  • Washtenaw Food Hub (9 AM – 12 PM), 4175 Whitmore Lake Rd., Ann Arbor
    The Food Hub is about 8 minutes north of downtown Ann Arbor. On Saturdays our CSA distribution has changed to the porch of the first building you will see with a round “sun window”. When you arrive at the distribution location, please park your car in any of the parking spaces in front of the porch under the sun window or across the parking lot from the porch. At this point, your share box will be in stations set out on the porch and a staff member will be there to check off the contact person’s name on the Sign In List. You may unpack your box into your own carry containers or you may return the box the following week. During the Summer season, please let us know that you are here for which CSA program, as we have two types of CSA’s being picked up at the same time at that time. Please follow the Exit signs to leave the site through a different driveway back onto Whitmore Lake Road for a safer traffic flow.
  • **SUMMER LOCATION: Chelsea Farmers Market (9 AM – 12 PM), 222 South Main St., Chelsea
    The Chelsea Farmers Market is at the Palmer Commons.  Look for the Tantré Farm sign. Introduce yourself to us at the market stall, and your name will be checked off on the Pick Up List.  You may unpack your box into your own carry containers or you may return the box the following week. Please ask our staff for help if you need help loading your box.  If you need curbside assistance, please let us know, since our farm staff or the market staff can help you.

*Please review the pick up protocol prior to your pick up date.

Online Payments Preferred:

Credit card payments using PayPal (online transaction with a 3% fee) are suggested. This helps streamline some very time-consuming data entry for our staff. Please note if you choose to use the COD option, you may bring a Check on Saturdays or make a Venmo payment to @Deb-Lentz.
