This season our CSA membership will be in the form of a Market Share, rather than a pre-set box of produce. You pre-purchase credit to spend on our produce throughout the season, which you may use to purchase anything we have available from our harvest each week. You may use your credit either Saturday mornings or Tuesday afternoons at the Texas Township Farmers' Market, or for pick-ups on our farm in Otsego on Tuesday afternoons.
The farmers, Mark and Brenda Cowell, agree to:• Work hard to produce fresh, diverse, high-quality food for your household through the 2019 growing season• Manage our farm based on principles of ecological sustainability• Manage the farm to mitigate risk of crop failure to the best of our knowledge and ability• Manage the business honestly and ethically• Communicate regularly with our members about the progress of the harvest and offer suggestions for preparing your share• Treat all members fairly and equally, and respond thoughtfully to any questions or concerns
As a member, you recognize that:• Membership is an investment in the farm’s economic stability• Farming is fundamentally risky, that weather/pest conditions cannot be fully controlled, and thus that success and availability of specific crops cannot be guaranteed in any given season or year• It is important to read your email from us! When you sign up, you will be added to our distribution list. We will inform you of what is available at the upcoming markets, and offer suggestions about how to use your seasonal produce.• The best way to communicate with us is via email. Our email is BlueStoneFarmCSA@gmail.com We will do our best to respond as soon as possible, but please understand that we spend most of our time in the field growing your food and not at our desk. Please contact us with any changes to your postal or email address, or dissatisfaction with your share.
