CSA RESOURCES

Membership Agreement

Your share of the harvest is a culmination of months of planning, seeding, planting, irrigating, weeding, harvesting, washing, and packing. We strive to provide you with the finest, freshest produce and treat you with the highest respect. While we expect a plentiful harvest, we cannot guarantee an abundance of every crop. We plan to continue planting a large variety of vegetables, but there may be variation in crop success from year to year. This contract commits members and farmers for a full harvest season (13, 26 or 50 weeks depending on the share), in its unpredictable beauty.

As a part of our community, you share in our successes as well as our failures, and for this, we are grateful. In exchange for your loyal support, we promise we will do our very best to meet your expectations. If a chosen share size & pickup plan is not meeting your needs, we would be happy to discuss changing your membership type. Please contact us as soon as possible so that we can find the membership plan that works best for you.

Community-Supported Agriculture is a transaction, but it is also a promise, one which describes our relationship as producers and consumers as we work to nourish one other.

Payments: We use a program called Farmigo to help manage the financial interactions between our customers and our farm. With it, Green Wagon subscribers have online access to their own accounts. We accept payment via Credit Card, E-Check (bank account),or Paypal. 

Autopay Option: If you choose the Autopay option, your account will automatically be charged on the 1st of each month, and you will receive an email notification of the charge.

Manual Payment: If you prefer, you will still have the option to make manual payments. 

By purchasing a share, you agree to the following guidelines: 

  • I will make my payments on time. Full or monthly payment should be made on time. Monthly invoices are sent on the 1st of each month.
  • I will pick up my share on time. We do not offer reimbursement or other accommodations for missed pickups. 
  • I will make my own arrangements if I cannot be present at pickup. Friends or family members are always welcome to pick up a share in your place: please let them know the name of our farm, our pick-up policies, and the name of the CSA member they are picking up for. Switching between Tuesday and Wednesday pickups is acceptable as long as you let us know ahead of time. If you expect to miss more than a few shares due to vacations or schedule conflicts, please look into our Market Card! This card grants you access to Tuesday or Wednesday pickups and can also be used at Saturday Market (Market Cards save you between 5 and 15% on your purchases).
  • If I have a special, unexpected circumstance that prevents me from retrieving my share for an extended period, I will contact you as soon as possible. We will review your request and determine if we can make an accommodation.

If a member misses two pickups in a row, we will reach out regarding next steps. If we do not hear back within one week, member will be removed from the CSA program so that we can add new members from our waiting lists. 

Refund Policy: All sales are final.

Holiday Breaks: We take two breaks over the course of a year for our CSA pickups: one during Christmas week and the other during Spring Break. A large percentage of our members take vacations during these two weeks. We also like to offer our team a vacation from the rigorous schedule that growing and harvesting food demands.
