Sharing in the Reward of Crop Surplus
Our farm is exclusively a CSA farm and all our production is planned for the CSA. When crops are especially abundant, we pack as much as possible into your share. However, we don’t want to overwhelm our members or deliver so much produce that it goes to waste. When we feel that members have received enough of certain crops, we will handle the surplus by donating it to the local food pantry and/or inviting members to pick-up extra produce at the farm. We may experiment with new varieties of vegetables so that we can increase diversity.
These crops will be distributed as equitably as possible but all members of the CSA may not receive all items or may receive a small sample of these varieties.
Sharing in the Risk of Crop Failure
We promise to do our best to provide you with a bountiful share each week. The quantity of produce, however, may vary from week to week due to extreme weather, insects, or other production factors despite our best efforts. By joining our CSA, you are agreeing to share the risk of crop failure with us and other members. In the unlikely event of a crop failure, our procedure is as follows:
If only a small portion of crops fail, we compensate for the failed crops by filling your share with other crops grown on the farm that are ready for harvest at that time. If a large portion of crops fails, we may not be able to deliver any product in some weeks.
