Hibernation Pick Up

Dear Hibernation Share participants,

A warm November has allowed us to offer one of our best and freshest Hibernation Shares ever!  Our hope is that you and your family enjoy the bountiful harvest. 

To those of you that are 2020 Fall/Summer CSA participants, we express our heartfelt thanks and we hope that we have earned your trust for the 2021 season.  And to those that this may be your first share, we would appreciate your consideration in the future!

The greenhouse is bursting at the seams with a beautiful crop of poinsettias, and fresh cut Christmas trees and wreaths have just arrived.  This is a great chance to use that CSA discount!

At this holiday season our hearts turn to thankfulness and giving.  Although 2020 has been a trying year for all, there is still much to be thankful for.  I am thankful for the country we live in.  Certainly not perfect but it is still the best on earth.  Our society is greatly divided politically but we are all still Americans.  May we somehow remember that and respect each other and live as God has meant for us to live.  With loving kindness and charity.

From Our Farm to Your Family,

Pickup Info
Hibernation pickup is Tuesday, November 24 from 10am-6pm at our garden center located on Indian Rock Dam Road in York, PA. C
urbside pickup is available from 1pm-5:30pm.


Miller Plant Farm requires everyone visiting our store to wear masks (except children under two years of age) and to practice social distancing. *Remember that my mask protects you and your mask protects me

Our plan for Hibernation share pickup includes a separate entrance for Hibernation members only. (This is the same procedure that was followed during the 2020 CSA season.)

  • As you face the store you will follow the porch to the right and observe the six foot marks on the ground/sidewalk.
  • You will enter the side entrance and give your name to the attendant who will check you in, eliminating the use of a common pen to sign in.
  • Your share will be pre-boxed for you, for quick + convenient pickup. Add-ons such as flowers and additional bags of corn (if purchased) will be placed on your cart as you proceed through the line.
  • When you have received all of your Hibernation share items, you are welcome to continue shopping throughout the store, or may exit the store through the sliding glass doors at the front of the store past the checkout registers.
  • When finished you may take the cart to your vehicle and transfer the items to your reusable bags and return the cart for sanitizing. Please do not bring your reusable bags into the store.

Share Details
We list the types of items you will likely receive this week.  Due to frequent and last minute changes in harvest, quantities distributed are to be determined on pick up day. Actual share items are subject to change depending upon availability, if necessary.
