MEMBER HANDBOOK + AGREEMENT
2013 Acme Farms + Kitchen Agreement
Members of the Acme Farms + Kitchen [AF+K] CSA receive a weekly share of vegetables that will vary in size and weight depending on the time of the season. CSA members agree to support their farmer by sharing in the inherent risks of agriculture (poor weather, drought, hail, crop failure, etc.) and the rewards (fresh, local vegetables, the bounty of a good season). CSA farmers carefully plan for contingencies by using growing techniques that protect the harvest, minimize the risks, and optimize the rewards. On the whole, members will get a wide variety of vegetables in plentiful amounts.
I understand this principle and agree that there is no guarantee on the exact amount or type of produce I will receive in my share. By participating in the CSA, I am supporting local farmers as well as more equitable food distribution, and I am helping to create a more environmentally and economically healthy society.
You are welcome to split a share with someone. However, share-splitting is the responsibility of the member; we do not manage the splitting of shares. This includes payment: only registered members are permitted to make payments on our website.
If you need to put your membership on hold you must give AF+K one week notice prior to delivery. There is a maximum of two “holds” per member, per season.
Should you discover that your order is incomplete, incorrect of damaged in some way, please contact us within 48 hours and we will make arrangements to correct the problem immediately.
If within two  weeks of your first delivery you do not feel like AF+K is the right fit, you are welcome to cancel your membership and be refunded your full membership fee. No membership fee refunds will be given after two weeks. Please contact us if you wish to cancel your membership.
By clicking the JOIN NOW button, and paying the membership fee, you agree to the above conditions.
