2021-22 LotFotL Winter CSA Terms and Conditions
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 I get more for my money than others. Online prices are subject to change based on this concept.
Cancellation: We thank you for your investment in the farm. If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot finish out the season, we suggest finding someone to take over your program and buy out your remaining credits. There is no charge to transfer these to another person. If you need to cancel completely, we offer a 50% return on any remaining credits left on your account. Cancellation must occur more than 30 days from the program end date.
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 go through steps to have your card on file in your new FarmMatch account.
Pick up Commitments:
Winter 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. I will place my order online by the published deadline.
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.
Pick up at LotFotL Community Farm: If I have chosen to pick up my food at the farm, I will place my order by the published deadline and pick up my items at the farm during the published hours of pick-up.
“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.
