csa terms & conditions
By purchasing an Even Pull Farm CSA share, for yourself or as a gift, you agree to the following terms and conditions as the recipient.
I understand that once I sign up and pay for my membership in full, I have secured my place in the CSA for the respective season.
There are no refunds, either full or partial, for cancellation of my CSA once purchased. Members may choose to find an alternate person to buy out the rest of the season’s share, and the share ownership will be transferred to the alternate person. The alternate person will pay the original shareholder directly. I understand that I am responsible for informing Even Pull Farm if such a transfer occurs.
I understand that the start date of each CSA share is flexible, based on seasonal conditions and product availability. I am aware that Even Pull Farm will communicate via email to inform all members of updates and the official start date, and that it is my responsibility to contact the farm via email if I am not receiving notifications near the projected CSA start date.
Picking up my share
I understand that my share will be delivered weekly to the pick up location. If I am out of town or unable to pick up my CSA for any reason, I understand that it is my responsibility to find a substitute to collect my share. If I am unable to pick up my share I will entitle a friend to do so. I understand that if my share is not picked up on the designated day, within the designated time, I forfeit that share and that it will be donated at the discretion of the farmer. I will not receive credit or a refund for any shares that I do not pick up.
Pick up time parameters are set for the entirety of the season. I agree to not sign up for the CSA knowing that I cannot regularly make it to pick up on the designated day & time.
I agree to not arrive early or late to the pick up location expecting my share to be available. I understand that the pick up location is also a place of business, and that I am not to interrupt or distract the staff in the course of their normal duties.
I understand that I am responsible for bringing a container to transport my share home in. All buckets and bins are to be left at the CSA pick up location.
Splitting my share
I may coordinate the splitting of my CSA share with another individual. I understand that Even Pull Farm does not facilitate such arrangements, and does not coordinate special payment on split shares. I will make all arrangements myself for collecting payment from the individual with whom I am splitting my share.
I understand that there are two set vacation weeks built into the CSA Season: the week of July 4th, and the week of Labor Day. I understand that my share will not be available on those designated dates and that I will receive reminders about the specific dates those vacation weeks occur in my weekly email from Even Pull Farm.
If I am out of town on a week that is not a set vacation week, I understand I am responsible for sending a proxy in my place to collect my share.
sharing the Risk
I understand that as a member, I share in both the bounty and the risks of farming. I understand that the risks include poor harvests due to unfavorable weather or pests, or the total loss of all crops due to a natural disaster such as fire, flood, or drought.
I understand that email is how Even Pull Farm communicates updates and changes, as well how they distribute our weekly newsletter during the season. By signing up for the CSA, I understand that I will be added to the weekly email list, and I agree to add firstname.lastname@example.org to my email contacts.
Even Pull Farm will not be held responsible for miscommunications due to our e-mails going to your Spam folder or Promotions tab. I will notify the farm immediately if I do not receive an e-mail receipt of my payment or my weekly CSA emails.
