THE MEMBER/FARMER AGREEMENT
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) also referred to as the Harvest Box is a relationship between farmers and eaters. It's a step beyond just buying vegetables. When you sign up for the Cardinal Creek Farm Harvest Box Membership Program, you're paying in advance for your share of the farm's harvest. You're also taking on part of the risk of planting, growing, and tending to crops. Farming is unpredictable. We can't guarantee there won't be variations in the quality and quantity of the produce we're able to harvest, depending on circumstances that are beyond our control.
Cardinal Creek’s Harvest Box Membership Program is a Farmer’s choice harvest box, meaning your farmer chooses what will be in your box each week and isn’t not customizable. We hope to add this feature in the future but for this year we need to keep things as simple as possible. That being said if you have allergies or are morally apposed to a certain veggie please let us know and we will do our best to replace that item with something to your liking.
In return for your support, we're excited to grow the very best vegetables we can for you. We will often share recipes and best storage practices as well as keeping a recipe section on our website. We consider the Harvest box to be much more than a way to sell vegetables. Harvest box members are an extended part of the farmily (Farm+Family). 2023 is Cardinal Creek’s 2nd CSA/Harvest box season, so this is a way for us, as your personal family farmer, to create a relationship with you and visa versa. We hope to meet you, get to know you, and have you out to the farm for events. You're the fuel that keeps this farm running.
What do you get?
We plant over 30 types of vegetables each year for Harvest Box members. Each week's Harvest box will typically contain 6-10 items, in the spring your box might have 6-7 items (approx. $25 in value), and in the summer 8-10 items ($35-40), thus making up for the deficit in the spring.
