Want to sign up but need someone to share with?

WE HAVE A NEW FORM FOR PEOPLE LOOKING TO FIND NEW SHARE PARTNERS –  http://goo.gl/forms/10ESjBRMK1

Hopefully we can match up anyone in need of a share partner.

Payment & Deposits

The whole purpose of a CSA is to get $$ to farmers in these lean Winter months, therefore the bigger a deposit you put down now, the better it is for our farmers. In order to encourage people to pay in full, we offer reduced admin fee to those who pay in full at sign-up. It makes life easier for the farmers and the volunteer organizers. However, we also offer several types of  extended payment plans so that the CSA is open to all families despite income.

  • $30 – Early Bird – Payment in Full at sign up
  • $35 – Regular – 2 payments; Deposit at sign up + Pay in full by June 30.
  • $40 – 4 Payments – Deposit in May, June, July & Aug. Balance due by Aug 31
  • $45 – 5 payments – Deposit in May, June, July, Aug, & Sept. Balance due by Sept 31

Please note, there will be a $5 late fee for every late payment. There will also be a $30 fee for bouncing checks.

You will choose your volunteer shifts. This year the amount has been reduced from 10 to six hours – each share family will do one distribution shift and 1 community shift. You will pick your distribution shift and the type of community shift you want. Once we receive the form, we will contact you within a few days, clarifying any questions, totaling the balance, and choose community shift dates. Once volunteer shifts are penciled into the calendar, we will fill out a receipt, scan and email it to you with your share and volunteer calendar as well as the 2015 Membership agreement.  Seems like it could be slightly complicated but we hope it will be easy and smooth….
