Doing Your Part in CSA
Helios Farms is growing fast because we deliver food produced from our farm share owners' livestock without using any modern ag chemicals or food additives. You are part of a community that is getting bigger all the time, and delivering more Single-Moo Milk every month. More children in Oregon have access to the gut microbiome tuning benefits of raw milk as they grow. So being in this community is about creating healthy little Oregonians to grow up and lead the next generation.
We have to move quickly and efficiently...
Deliver Us Your Jars
One of the things that can slow down our day is running out of jars. We like to see a steady inflow of empty jars, so that we can refill them and get them back out to your farm share community. When we do a delivery, we often come back with only a fraction of the number of jars that we just delivered. Then some weeks, particularly after we appeal for returns, everyone returns their jars and we have an abundance for a while.
We also have our cream jars steadily decrease in number until we have none. That gives us nowhere to put the tasty cream so we can get it out to cream share owners. (So of course we buy more jars.)
We also don't want to take on the overhead of tracking jar and container returns, so the onus falls onto our farm share owners to make sure that all the containers (Jars, Lids, and Egg Cartons) we deliver to you are steadily delivered back to the farm for refilling.
