Here's the deal.
Even Pull Farm will strive to grow a diverse range of high quality blooms from early summer to early fall. By using practices including detailed crop planning, succession planting, applying organic soil amendments, using non-chemical methods of controlling pests and weeds, and keeping a clean farm we will mitigate the risks from weather, pests, and other challenges associated with growing flowers with natural methods.
Our target date for starting CSA pick ups is June 20th. Due to weather and other factors, the first pick up date may vary by one week from that target (earlier or later). We promise to let you know no less than 7 days before the first pickup that the CSA is ready to roll! From that start date we will have 16 weeks of pick up on Tuesday evenings from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm in downtown McMinnville. Our pick up location will be announced shortly. If we start pickup on our target date, final pick up will be October 3rd.
We will work to provide you with the freshest and most beautiful blooms in our bouquets each week. We will write a CSA newsletter every week outlining the flowers you can expect at pick up and tips on how to care for your blooms once you take them home.
CSA is a partnership between farmers and members, and there are some expectations for our CSA members. By signing this form and joining our CSA, you agree to and understand the following:
- Farming is heavily dependent on weather and climate conditions. On rare occasions, despite best-laid plans, there may be a crop failure.
- Bugs and other animals can access our fields, sometimes damaging or destroying crops.
- If you do not pick up your CSA share on Tuesday between 4 and 6:30pm, the flowers will be donated to a memory care or assisted living facility in McMinnville.
- Please note that there is no vacation week for Bouquet Shares: please arrange for someone to pick up your bouquet in your place!
- We are all a part of the same community and will treat everyone with consideration and respect at CSA pick-ups and other farm events.
- Your farmers value feedback. We need to know how things are going and love to have input on how to improve the CSA. Please remember that your farmers work long, hard hours and put a lot of time, energy, and emotion into producing the freshest and most beautiful flowers possible. Please keep this in mind when you offer feedback.
- Your payment holds your place in the CSA. You have the option to pay in full at a discount. If you prefer to pay in two installments, your deposit of $140 for a weekly share, $70 for a bi-weekly share, will hold your place in the CSA.
- If you are choosing to pay in two installments, the balance is due by June 27th. ($150 for a weekly share, $75 for a biweekly share). If this payment is not received by the 27th, you cannot pick up a share until the bill is settled. If we have not received payment by July 4th, we will charge you a late fee of $25.
- There are no refunds or discounts.
In essence, we promise to grow the best possible blooms for you in our little slice of Yamhill County. You agree to help take on some of the risk associated with farming by paying for your flowers up front. We will work to ensure your investment turns into vibrant, unique, and beautiful blooms. We will strive to make the community of our members strong, vibrant, and fun.
