Here's the deal.
As your farmers, we pledge to do the following:
Grow the best dang veggies in a wide variety.
We will strive to grow a diverse and delicious range of high quality vegetables all season long.
Work hard to mitigate the risks inherent in farming.
We will work tirelessly to mitigate the risks posed by inclement weather, pests, and other challenges associated with growing vegetables using organic methods.
Write a weekly newsletter packed with good stuff.
We will write a CSA newsletter every week outlining the veggies you can expect at pickup, helpful recipes, and ideas for preparing your produce, as well as farm updates and photos. This newsletter will be distributed via email and arrive at least 1 day before pickup every week.
Be present at most csa pick ups.
One of your farmers will be present at pick up barring extreme circumstances. We will be there to visit, chat about farm happenings, and help troubleshoot any challenges you're facing with unfamiliar veggies or using up your share.
Grow your food with the utmost love and care.
Because our members matter to us! It is an honor to grow food for you and your families.
By signing this form and joining our CSA, you acknowledge that you have read and will abide by our CSA Terms & Conditions:
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 or find a substitute to pick up my share, 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. It is my responsibility to pick up my share during the designated time period on the designated day. If I am unable to pick it up 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 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.
PICK UP DAY, TIME & LOCATION
I understand that the Pick Up day, time & location are set for the entirety of the season. I agree to not sign up for the CSA knowing that I cannot make it to pick up on the designated pick up 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.
missed pick up in case of emergency
Your farmers understand that emergencies happen in life. If you are for some reason unable to pick up your CSA share on Tuesday between 4 and 6:30pm, you will have the option to pick it up the next day (Wednesday) during Flag & Wire hours ONLY (7am-5pm). Your share will be removed and donated on Wednesday evening if not picked up.
I understand that this is a back up option is a privilege, and agree not to rely on it as an alternative to the actual pick up.
I understand that there are two set vacation weeks built into the CSA Season: the week of Independence Day, 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.
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.
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 email@example.com 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.
