CSA Member Responsibilities
Purchasing a share is a season-long commitment, if you can't finish out the season reassign the share to another household.  If you can't pick up your box, arrangements must be made ahead of time.  Keep a copy of your order form, which contains delivery & contact information; also, read emails and newsletters that are sent out with each delivery.

A note on risk
CSA is a shared risk arrangement between farmers and members.  Weather conditions & wildlife can have an effect on yield.  We can't guarantee a perfect crop each year, and that is just part of a CSA and farming.  We can guarantee working our hardest to provide a quality product.  CSA members always get the best product--before farmers' markest.  Risk is addressed on the farm through conscious crop rotation, plantings to attract beneficial insects and by growing Diversity--growing crops resistant to various conditions, growing a diversity of fruits and vegetables, and a diversity of varieties.
