Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial relationship between a farm and the community of people who receive the food the farm produces.
Members pay their CSA membership for a period of time (three months or more) and, in return, receive a monthly share containing an assortment of delicious chicken and other things the farm produces. The members become a part of the farm’s local food community, develop a relationship with the farm, and learn about the origins of their food and how it is raised. Members share in the inherent rewards and risks of the agricultural season. The arrangement contributes to the viability of small-scale local agriculture and allows the farm to meet expenses throughout the season.
Sharing in the Risk of Crop Failure
We promise to do our best to provide you the outlined share each pick-up. The product size, however, may vary from month-to-month due to extreme weather, predation, or other production factors despite our best efforts. By joining our CSA, you are agreeing to share the risk of crop failure with us and other members. In the unlikely event of a crop failure, our procedure is as follows:
Smaller meat cuts, or give additional meat cuts/eggs to supplement the smaller sizes.
Extend the CSA season to include the same number of total items over a larger amount of time.
We may cover for a crop loss by buying from other local farms with the same growing practices as our farm.
You will be informed of this change ahead of time. This may not be a feasible option for all crops because of cost or widespread failure.
Sharing in the Reward of Crop Surplus
When growing conditions are ideal, meat cuts are especially large. Members will receive cuts larger than outlined in the CSA signup, additional eggs, and other various farm products.
If you cannot afford to pay upfront for your CSA, you may choose the downpayment option on the order form. You will pay for your last month FIRST before the CSA begins and this will reserve your spot. At your first pickup, you will pay for the current month, at your second pickup you will pay for the current month and at your last pickup, you will pay nothing. This is a non-refundable deposit that will pay in advance for your final pickup. If you do not show for your pickup and do not make arrangements for someone else to get it for you or schedule a different appointment, you will be removed from the Voodoo Farm CSA.
