The following applies to the Regular Season Farm Share CSA
We recommend a payment plan that uses the first of the month as a payment date. It is important to us that we help those who need to split their payments up in order to participate. However, we ask that persons who have a payment plan take on a substantial part of the tracking. We do not have a hired book keeper. Thus, the farmer must farm and do the book keeping. Help us to help you. As a result, we will benefit from each other's support.
A Sample Payment Plan
Standard Share cost = $330
Large share could be similar, but $90 for five months (+ deposit payment at beginning)
A Second Sample Payment Plant
Standard Share Cost = $330
Large share similar, but $225.00 each payment
Your Share Agreement
As a member of Genuine Faux Farm Community Supported Agriculture, I understand that my share payment does not guarantee an exact amount of produce. I am making a commitment to support the local production of food, and I take part in the rewards and the risks of the growing season. I also understand that my payments are non-refundable. I understand that my share will be delivered at the same time and location each week, unless a change is agreed to at least one week in advance.
The Philosophy of Community Supported Agriculture Farm Shares
Membership in a CSA is, first and foremost, a partnership between the farmer and the share holder. As a share holder, you are being asked to invest in the farm for the growing season. In return, we become your 'personal farmers.' As share holders, you must expect to receive produce when it is in season. If a crop fails, you need to expect to receive very little (or none) of that item. If a crop does well, you will reap the bounty just as we do. Your personal farmers will do everything that they can to insure that you will receive plenty of good food.
Using the Postal Service
Rob is a stamp and postal history collector. Please humor him in using the postal service. In fact, you could humor him further by returning the used envelope he mails to you with the bill. He will add it to his collection quite happily.
