Cougar 1

Our 2015 season kicks off on Monday May 4th with Week 1 of Berry, Egg, Meat, & Chicken shares. However, don’t fret if you still want to join because it is not too late… Availability of shares — especially half shares — varies but we will do our best to get you lined up with the shares of your dreams. Email southsidecsa@gmail.com to get signed up. Below is the general pricing for remaining shares:

  • (Mostly)Berry Share – 24 weeks – May 4 – Oct 12 (Full – $475; Half – $237.50)
    • Berry shares ARE NOT pro-rated for late starts. Norm throws in the asparagus – which is what comes in the share during May– as a bonus and therefore it is not calculated into the share $$ total

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….
