Spring 2017 CSA Shares will run for 5 weeks. Friday pickup only 2pm-7pm.
We offer a very limited number of spring shares for those who wish to get a jump on the harvest season. We offer spring farm tours and special baby animal meet and greets for our Spring share members, as well. The share will include vegetables, some preserves, and flowers fresh from the farm.
By purchasing this share, you are agreeing to our CSA-member's agreement below.
I commit to membership in The Hickories CSA for the harvest season. I commit to pick up my weekly share. I understand that if I do not pick up my share, it will be sold or donated and I cannot pick it up outside the scheduled window of assigned time.
One aspect of CSA is that I will share in the inherent risks of agriculture (poor weather, drought, disease, frost, and so on) and in the rewards (bumper crops, new flavors) of a local harvest. There is no refunding of my investment other than through vegetables I pick up.
By purchasing a share, I am confirming that 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 environmentally sustainable food production and distribution.
