As a CSA member, you are entering into an agreement with our farm. By signing up for a share, you agree to the following terms. Please read carefully and contact us if you have questions. You can also visit our CSA FAQs page for more details.
2019 FALL SHARE SEASON: 10 weekly deliveries, from Tuesday October 8th to Tuesday December 10th.
PICK-UP TIMES AND LOCATIONS: When you sign up, you commit to picking up each basket at the same time and place. If you are ever unable to pick up your share, you are welcome to send someone on your behalf. We don’t need to know in advance; the person picking up just has to give your name. In the case of emergencies, bad weather, etc, please contact us to arrange a later pick-up time.
PAYMENT SCHEDULE AND REFUNDS: CSA fees are due in full by the time you pick up your first box in May. (See Why do I have to pay up front? for more.) As we incur input costs for many months before shares are sold, we are unable to issue refunds, even if the delivery season has not started yet.
CSA NEWSLETTER: You will receive an email newsletter the day before each delivery, with a produce list, recipe ideas, farm news and any schedule updates. Members are expected to read the newsletter to stay informed of changes.
OUR COMMITMENT: We appreciate the support and commitment of our CSA customers, and our top priority on the farm is to ensure the quantity and quality of produce in each basket. We commit to providing a diversity of high quality organic greens. We grow a wide range of varieties to reduce the risk of crop failures, and we do everything in our abilities (in keeping with the Canadian Organic Standards) to adapt to challenges posed by weather conditions, pests and disease.
YOUR COMMITMENT: Part of the CSA model is that members share the risk and rewards of farming. Growing organic vegetables has inherent risks. We are happy to provide an abundance when crops are plentiful, and we ask for your understanding if some crops are less plentiful than expected.
Thank you for supporting sustainable food production in your region!
