These are the guidelines that keep our CSA running smoothly, and you will be responsible for knowing them.
The Philosophy of CSA
Community Supported Agriculture is a relationship one step above a simple convenience, a give and take of produce for cash. It is based on mutual respect between the customers and the farmers. Under the CSA model, members pay in advance for the food they will receive, reflecting the risk that the farm takes to plant, tend, and harvest the crops. Kirsop Farm is not a delivery service; your membership is a contract to support the farm for a growing season and in return the farm will provide you with a share of the harvest.
Kirsop Farm cannot guarantee the delivery of specific crops at specific times in specific quantities. We leverage more than 15 years of experience in the production of organic vegetables to do the best we can do.
Your box will be at the specified pick up location on the designated delivery dates and time. If you don’t pick up during those times, we can’t guarantee that we can hold your box. If you can’t pick up your box during the specified times, you can send somebody else to do it. No refunds or credits will be given for missed pick ups.
Please return your boxes. Boxes are expensive, returning them helps us keep costs down, and benefits the environment.
We send out an email newsletter before each delivery. It has important information about the shares. Please take the time to read it so that you don’t miss anything.
