Subscriptions are weekly orders that will come automatically each week after you confirm your subscription purchase! They usually take 7-10 days for the first box - to give producers time to prepare - but you'll get a confirmation a few days prior to the start. You can manage them yourself by putting them on hold if you need a break - just follow our lead time requirements so that we have enough time to notify producers. You can also shop the site each week to add individual items you want in addition to the automatic subscription and it will all get combined into one order as long as you shop in the distribution cycle that matches your subscription. Easy!
