What joining a CSA means: CSA members pay ahead of time for the produce they receive. This gives us the capital needed to start, grow, and harvest your produce. CSAs help reduce the risk of farming and provide you, the consumer, with the freshest picked produce available.
Payments: Members can join at anytime and we will pro-rate the share costs, done automatically in the system. Options to pay in full or installments are available. The prices listed on the storefront represent prepaid or automated installment payments. Members may make arrangements for monthly payment plans; however, additional processing fees may apply.
Cancellations: By buying CSA, a share of the harvest, you have made a committment to the farm for a season. We commit to you to grow produce for the season. Therefore, we can only give store credit for cancellations, not cash refunds. If you are moving out of the area, we encourage you to sell or gift your share. If there are extenuating circumstances please let us what they are and we will try to work out a fair solution for all.
Picking up your share: Members pick up their share at the farm store on the day you have chosen. We do not deliver to drop off sites. During fall, winter, and spring shares pick up days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays during store hours. If you can't make it during store hours, let us know and we will bag up your share and leave it in front of the store for you to pick up at your earliest convenience. Summer share- Choose between the following pick up options: Tuesdays/Wednesdays or Fridays/Saturdays. You can switch days if needed; just let us know.
What if I can't pick up my share: Illness, vacations, or just forgot!! During fall, winter or spring shares, please let us know and we will bag up your share and make available for you to pick up after hours. We also suggest you ask a friend or neighbor to pick up your share if you will be out of town. or we can donate your share.
During summer share we are happy to arrange an alternate pick up day if you give us a weeks notice. We are pretty flexible since you pick up your share at the farm and not at a drop off point, so we can often make arrangements for you to pick extra, or double up when you miss. Please let us know ahead of time!
Contents of your share: We choose what will be in the share each week and set up on tables in the farm store. We label each item with the amount you can choose. We encourage you to try everything. We do not offer substitutions. We often have a trading table so you can trade an item you don't like for something else.
Store discount: Share members get a 10% discount on most other items available in our store when you are a current member.
