Frequently Asked Questions
More than just great farm fresh food.
Choose a schedule that is best for you:
- CHANGE LOCATION. Changing a delivery location allows you to pickup at another location within the same week.
- SKIPPING A DELIVERY. Placing a “skip” on your delivery will result in forfeiting that box for the week. You will not be charged for the missed box.

Thinking you might waste too much food? We have the solution for you! Simply skip your box every-other-delivery or pause for a season of time. No need to ever cancel your subscription.

You’ll never miss out because we’ll send you an email reminder for the weeks you want to stock your fridge.
Riehm’s takes waste reduction one step further and donates any surplus harvest to the community at several of our local pick-up locations. Resulting in over $10,000 annually in total products given to these locations:
- Findlay Community Churches. Provided fresh fruit and vegetables to help supplement low income individuals weekly.
- Brown Bag Food Project. Provided fresh fruit and vegetables to support people in crisis in Wood county.
- Toledo community area.

What do I get?
Control your dollar value:
An algorithm selects products that have been chosen for your CSA market box based on your minimum spend amount – this means that when items are removed from your cart, the price remains the same until you add more to your shopping cart.
If the total value of the products in your cart is less than the minimum spend amount, you will see an alert screen to add product. You can choose to swap for higher dollar items or add more to your shopping cart.
You can revisit the customization page to make changes to your box items as many times as you wish until the cut-off time. Click Here to See the possibilities for your box!
Discover ways to be a smart shopper:
The computer algorithm is set for whatever size box you choose as your spend amount. On the occasion that items are in low supply they may have already been pre-built into the larger boxes. Therefore, you may not be able to get the extra items.
For that reason it may be best to get a bigger box to start with. To get your money’s worth with a bigger box you can think about stocking up on proteins to conveniently have them on-hand in your freezer.
Other great items for your freezer would be to have cheese, maple syrup, ice cream, and granola to serve up at a moments notice! Beef jerky and beef sticks are other great freezer items to have accessible for when you get those ravenous cravings for a quick snack.
What day do I customize?
Mark your calendar now:
You’ll want to get out of fast food mode! Things take a bit of time when you’re eating quality food right from the farm. Therefore look for your weekly June – October customization email just a day or two after you receive your CSA Market Box so we can get started. For the bi-weekly season November – May look for your customization email the following week after receiving your CSA Market Box.
Here is an example of the farm’s timeline:
- You will have 2-3 days to customize what you would like for the following week.
- Please allow the farm 2 days to harvest as well as place orders from others like dairy, eggs, bread, etc.
- Plus time to pack your box.
