CSA Terms and Conditions
Please read ALL this information about City Beet Farm’s CSA program. We want you to be well informed before you sign up so that there aren’t any surprises!
As your farmers we do our very best to bring you a diverse array of vegetables and beautiful flowers throughout the season. We are committed to making the portions generous and boxes abundant so that you can share the bounty of the farm with loved ones.
As CSA members you will be required to sign up for our Newsletter. Please ensure you have selected “yes” to receiving email notifications from us as this is our primary method of communication. This is how you will be notified about the first pick-up date and any other important information about the farm. We share farm stories, personal tales, pictures and recipes in our weekly newsletters. We hope that you enjoy reading them!
As a veggie box member, depending on the time of the season you will receive 7-10 items as part of your weekly share. We select the items based on what is ready on the farm. The entire farm is less than ⅓ acre therefore we must maximize our space with planting. For this reason we are not able to grow things like storage onions, corn, many varieties of winter squash, cauliflower or broccoli heads. The first couple boxes of the season tend to be quite ‘greens’ heavy, however as the season progresses the diversity will grow. Please see photos of last years boxes to get a sense of what to expect.
You will be required to come pick up your vegetables and/or flowers from the Mighty Oak Café at 18th Ave and Columbia Street from 4-7pm on Tuesday evenings. If you are unavailable to pick up your box at that time please have another individual pick it up on your behalf. They will just need to let us know on whose behalf they are picking up. A reminder that though we call it a vegetable box we do not provide a box or bag to carry your vegetables home in. Please bring your own bags to fill up and tell your friends to do the same if they are collecting for you.
Although we would like to, we are unable to offer flexible pick-up options or supplemental boxes for missed pick-ups at this time. The reason is that we have very limited, non-centralized fridge space that we share with other users. Logistics, access and timing make it so that we cannot accommodate different option for ‘missed’ boxes. We apologize for this in advance and would like you to know that all of the vegetables that remain at the end of Tuesday’s pick-up are given as a bonus to our homeowners who offer us their yard space. None of the produce is wasted.
We hope to be as transparent about our process as possible, should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or by email. We hope that you enjoy your experience as part of the City Beet Farm community and we look forward to being your farmers.
