Best to stop in the small parking lot at the entrance to the driveway, just before the church when traveling north on RT 121(Meadow Road), and to check in with Wanda in the office on that upper level.  She will direct you to the lower level and receive the produce from them there, as that door is always locked.
If you call Theda Logan ahead of time, and she is available, okay to go directly to the lower level to the double glass doors, and she will meet you there. It takes her 25 minutes from her house to the church.
