2021 LotFotL CSA Terms and Conditions Contract

2021 LotFotL CSA Terms and Conditions Contract

I do hereby affirm my desire to become a member of LotFotL Community Farm in 2021.  I am comfortable with the farm communicating changes, updates, and announcements about my shares via email.

Payment Commitments: In signing up for a CSA share I am committing to investing the full cost of my share into the farm. Whether I pay in full or in installments, I am liable for the full amount of the share. I understand that the farm plans its vegetable and meat production and makes investments based on these commitments, so it is imperative that I fully pay for my share.  I understand that this is an investment, so some years the return is especially high and some years it may be a bit lower than hoped.

Cancellation: In the event that I feel I must discontinue with my share and I can’t find anyone to step into my place, I understand that the cancellation fee for “Choice” CSA program members will be 1/5 of the total cost of my program (aka 1 months worth of the cost) in addition to my deposit. For part-time produce there is a $150 cancellation fee regardless of when I cancel.

FarmMatch and Credit cards: We now use a platform called FarmMatch to process our weekly orders. You will be asked to take steps to enroll in FarmMatch, this includes giving a credit/debit card number that is kept on file.  So, EVEN IF YOU WILL PAY WITH A CHECK, you will still be go through steps to have your card on file in your new FarmMatch account.

Pick up Commitments:

“Choice” CSA Program: I understand that this program is designed to feed members on a weekly basis and works best if members pick up once a week. Members must arrive between the listed pick up times at their site and/or place their online order by the published deadline to receive their food.

Part-time Produce: I will pick up food from the specified location during the published hours and follow the directions given at the site and/or place my order by the given deadline. This program allows members to pick up on 15 weeks of their choice out of the 24 weeks of delivery. There are no credits or refunds given for not redeeming all 15 eligible weeks.

Home delivery Shares: If I have chosen a home delivery program, I will supply a visible cooler in a designated place to have my food left in when it is delivered. LotFotL reserves the right to cancel a delivery due to poor weather. In the event of unsafe weather conditions, a new delivery day and time will be established to ensure your order safely reaches you, and the farmer safely makes it home thereafter.

South Shore Market Shares: If I have chosen to pick up my food at the market, I  will place my order by the published deadline and pick up my items at the farm stand between 8am and 12pm.

Farmer/Member Commitment

“Choice” CSA Program: I’m willing to share in the risks of investing in an organic farmer and will not hold Tim Huth or LotFotL legally accountable for extenuating circumstances that may minimize the return on my investment. I understand that the heartiness of the food available will change throughout the season.  I understand that sustainable meat will be available from LotFotL and/or other local Wisconsin or regional producers. Other food will be sourced from local Wisconsin or regional businesses/farms. I am expecting a season’s worth of food of reasonable quantity, quality, and variety as appropriate return on this investment.

Farm Communication: By signing up for the CSA, I understand that I will be added to the weekly email list. This is how LotFotL communicates updates and changes, as well as what will be in/available for shares each week.

Thank you for choosing LotFotL Community Farm!  We look forward to growing with you this season.
