COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE -- CSA SUBSCRIPTION POLICIES

ON-LINE ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT: We use Farmigo www.farmigo.com to process our shares. On Farmigo you will manage your own account, you’ll be able to track and make payments, and renew your subscription in a few easy steps.

COMMITMENT PERIOD: Subscribing to a CSA is a commitment to good farming, good food and community building. It is more than a transaction at grocery store. Like most CSA programs we require a minimum commitment, ours is 8-weeks for all subscribers. After the 8-week mandatory trial period, you will be billed automatically for your next four deliveries until you cancel your account. If after the 8-week mandatory trial you find the CSA is not for you, you must contact us to cancel your subscription (see below how to cancel your subscription).

PAYMENT/BILLING: Becoming a CSA shareholder means that you pledge to support our farm in its operations by pre-paying a fee in exchange for a share of the harvest. We accept electronic checks or credit cards. After the 8-week introductory period your account will be billed AUTOMATICALLY each 4-delivery period. We offer discounts for longer pre-payment periods. We do not offer partial refunds or replacements. However we will fulfill delivery on all boxes for which you have pre-paid unless otherwise requested. Subscriptions must be paid in advance, on-line, through our website. The credit card or electronic check used for your subscription will be billed automatically; should you wish to change the credit card that is billed, just log on to your account and go to your member profile section. If you have questions e-mail csa@maoorganicfarms.org and a staff member will assist you as soon as possible. When signing up as a new customer all accounts are placed on hold for 4 days, this gives us time to process your account. You will receive your box on the closest delivery date for your designated host site after the 4-day hold. Each subscription is charged a non-refundable administrative fee of $15.

CANCELLING YOUR CSA SUBSCRIPTION: Cancellations can only be made by farm staff. To cancel your subscription, please send an e-mail to csa@maoorganicfarms.org. If you do not hear from our staff within 4-days please contact our office directly at 808-696-5569. Please note: canceled members rejoining the CSA will be recharged the $15 administrative fee.

BOX CONTENTS: Each box includes between 8-13 items, enough for 2-4 people for a week.

Many items are exclusive to chefs & CSA Subscribers, not available at our other points of sale. The box contents vary season to season, but generally will include our signature Sassy salad mix, a selection of cooking greens, roots, fruit and herbs. Some weeks may contain more/less contents, depending on weather, harvest and season. Our bright yellow boxes are re-usable and can be flattened for storage. Please return your empty box each week in exchange for a full box. Unfortunately substitutions or special requests for box contents are not permitted at this time.

LOCATION & PICK-UP: Your box will be at the specified pick-up location on the designated delivery dates and time. The box is guaranteed during the pick-up hours. If you or your agent, do not pick up during the designated hours, your box is left to the host’s discretion. Each host site runs differentl.
