Helpful Hints For All Share Members:

CSA Member Responsibilities
Farm membership with CSA - Community Supported Agriculture - is an adventure! CSA is about food, but also connection and community - much more than a trip to the grocery store. Purchasing a share is a commitment, it's important to make an informed decision. Please read the information on shared risk and other member responsibilities at the bottom of this page. Please contact us with any questions or hesitations you may have! 

Missed Shares Policy
Shares must be picked up at the prearranged time and location. If you can't receive your share at the prearranged time alternate plans must be made at least 24 hours ahead of time; you can always have a friend pick it up for you, or opt to donate it. If you forget to pick up your share you must call us that evening to make arrangements to get it.

A Note on Shared Reward/Risk
CSA is a shared reward-shared risk arrangement between farmers and members. It is our duty to minimize risk and work our hardest to provide a quality product, it is our members duty to understand what this unique relationship means and support us in our mission. Many conditions - frost, hail, pests, disease - can have an effect on yield. Inevitably, some crop will do bad each year and something else will excels at the same time - it's a balance act during the season, and across the seasons. Risk is addressed on the farm through conscious crop rotation, plantings to attract beneficial insects and by growing diversity - crops suited to our site; a diversity of fruits and vegetables; a diversity of varieties. 

A Note on Community
CSA is important for our farm, because it goes beyond just growing food to also grow community. We ask that through your farm membership you agree to participate in the farm in some manner - interact on the farm Facebook page, visit the farm during the season, attend farm events, get to know your farmers at the market or on the farm, share recipes and cooking tips with other members, volunteer at the farm, etc.

We ask all farm members to do their best to read the newsletter that comes with your share. This will make the most of your experience, as well as keep you up-to-date on farm happenings, farm challenges, changes, etc.
