CSA Terms and Conditions

Definitions
Distribution(s) is defined as the method the shareholder plans to make payment and accept delivery of their share of the harvest.  Share is defined as the quantity of produce provided by Equinox Farm & Orchard, LLC.  Shareholder is defined as the individual agreeing to the purchase of a share on a recurring basis.

 

Payment
I understand that any method of distribution purchased will secure my place in the CSA on a recurring basis.  In signing up for Equinox CSA share using the Cash on Delivery payment method, I am liable for the full amount of the purchased distributions at the time of first delivery.  Each shareholder will be invoiced ten (10) days prior to the end of their current share distribution plan.  If I do not make payment for another purchased distribution within five (5) days before my next distribution plan begins delivery, I may no longer be eligible for the CSA.

There is no refund for cancelation during a purchased share distribution plan. Members may choose to find an alternate person to buy out the purchased distribution share, and the share ownership will be transferred to the alternate person. The alternate person will pay the original shareholder directly.

 

Cancelation or Change Share Distribution Method
Shareholders wanting to cancel their recurring method of distribution must contact the CSA within ten (10) days of next distribution plan begins delivery.  Shareholders wanting to change their method of distribution must contact CSA within five (5) days of next distribution plan begins delivery.

 

Picking Up Your Share
I understand that my weekly/biweekly deliveries will be delivered to me at the requested address.  I understand that my weekly/biweekly deliveries will be determined by Equinox CSA.  If I am out of town and cannot find a substitute to take my share, I am to notify Equinox Farm & Orchard, LLC in advance so my service can be suspended. 

It is my responsibility to be available for drop off of my share during the designated time period. If I am unable to pick it up I will entitle another individual to take ownership or provide confirmation twenty four (24) hours prior to drop off where share should be left at delivery address. I understand that Equinox Farm & Orchard, LLC is not liable for shares that are dropped off to delivery address without an individual present.

 

Sharing Our Harvest
I understand that as a member, I share in the bounty and the risks of farming, including poor harvests due to unfavorable weather or pests, or the total loss of all crops due to a natural disaster such as flood, drought, tropical storm or hurricane.  This means at times your share may contain a few similar items, may contain many different items, may contain not enough items or may contain more items than expected.

 

Email
By signing up for the CSA, I understand that I will be added to the weekly email list. This is how Equinox Farm & Orchard, LLC communicates updates and changes, as well as what will be in shares each week. Equinox Farm & Orchard will not be held responsible for miscommunications due to our e-mails going to your spam folder.
