Detailed TERMS OF AGREEMENT to be kept by Members

As a member of the Cape Cod Organic Farm CSA, and from the moment as I sign up for a CSA share, I commit to share the risks and rewards of the farm’s harvests. I also agree that:

1) I am obligated to pay for the entire CSA season of pickups,
2) my payment is non-refundable and does not guarantee me an exact amount of produce,
3) I cannot pick up my share(s) on a day other than my scheduled pickup day,
4) my share(s) will come back to the farm or go on the trade table if I haven’t picked it up by the close of farm hours on my designated pickup day

5) I will bring my own box/bags to collect my share(s).

PICKUP PROCEDURE

Stop 1. Check-In with CSA Coordinator: where we will check your name on the check-in list. The check-in list indicates what you are scheduled to pick up

Stop 2. The Produce Line: where you collect your produce share.

Stop 3. The Trading Table/Box: you cannot trade produce at the produce line but you can trade it at the Trading Table/Box. You can trade one or more produce portions from your produce share with portions that are on the table.

Please trade whole portions, not partial portions. A portion is the amount of any produce that you are supposed to take that week (e.g. if there are 3 tomatoes in your share on a given week, you must trade all 3 tomatoes – not just 1 or 2, with a full portion of another produce item that is on the Trading Table.)

Stop 4. The CSA U-Pick Herb and Flower Garden: Each week you are welcome to pick as many Herbs and Flowers as you would like from this garden. It is a part of your share membership! Ask if you have any questions about how to use things.

AND PLEASE REMEMBER:

Only pick up on your pickup day: You can only pick up your share on your scheduled pickup day as we only have as many shares as we have members scheduled for each pickup day. If you are unable to pick up your share on your pickup day, ask a friend to pick it up for you. If you have an extenuating circumstance, please communicate with the CSA Coordinator as soon as possible. If something comes up and you are not able to pick up during a CSA pickup day, please call the farm ASAP and let us know.

Please note that we cannot reimburse your for share(s) not picked up.        

Bring your own bags to gather your produce. In the spirit of recycling and to keep costs down, we do not provide bags.

Every Tuesday you will receive an email reminder letting you know what your Harvest Pickup Items will be for Wednesday. It will also give you recipe suggestions for use of these items, along with any new farm information that might be of interest.

Thank you for supporting the farm and being invested in eating locally and healthily! We are happy to have you as part of our Farm Family!
