2017 Sprout Market Share CSA Customer Agreement

 
  • As a member of Sprout Market Share CSA, I will receive a weekly/biweekly share of vegetables consisting of six to ten items. The shares will vary in weight and size depending on the season. Being a member means being a “farming partner” – thereby sharing the inherent risks of agriculture (poor weather, drought, disease, early frosts, pests, crop failure) and the rewards (bounty from a good season or bounty of specific crop) involved in farming. Sprout plans for such contingencies and partners with farms that use growing techniques that try to protect the harvest such as growing a wide variety of crops that thrive in different conditions, cover cropping, crop rotation, irrigation, etc. Sprout strives for long-lasting and trusting relationships between farmers and communities. On the whole, members will receive a variety of vegetables, herbs, eggs when available, and all goods are produced by a variety of local farmers. Therefore, I agree with the principles listed above.
  • By participating in Sprout Market Share CSA, I understand that not only am I supporting many local farmers, I am supporting locally grown, sustainable fruits and vegetables, a more equitable food distribution system and I am contributing to a more environmentally sound and economically fair and healthy society.
  • I commit to a membership in Sprout Market Share CSA for the 2017 harvest season. I understand that a full share for the 2017 season is 16 weeks and costs $600.00 and a half share is 8 weeks and costs $300.00 and consists of a basket containing at least six to ten items, biweekly eggs when available, and all goods are grown by local farmers.
  • As a member, I commit myself to timely payments and a commitment to pick up my share at the agreed upon site. I understand that if I do not make arrangements by calling within 24 hours of pick up, my share for that week will be forfeited and donated to the local food shelf, soup kitchen or a family in need.
