Rolling Prairie Acres -2016 CSA Contract – Sigourney
708 Ringgold St. Sigourney, IA 52591
I understand that Rolling Prairie Acres Farm (RPA) will do the best that they can to grow an abundance of produce for 24 weeks in 2016. I realize that their number one job is to raise their three children. Growing my food by sustainable means is very important to the family and I can be assured that only OMRI (Organic) approved products will be used in growing my fruits & veggies. Also, I trust that they are spending plenty of time and love tending my food.
I am aware that Rolling Prairie Acres Farm cannot always supply all of my families fresh food needs on every given week and that I may need to purchase food from other sources at times. Also, there may be times when there may be a few “extras” available from RPA. (Berries, Tomatoes, Etc.). These will be offered on a first come, first served basis to all patrons. I understand that this CSA experience is a very simple “no frills” approach to local eating. I understand that I am entitled to a share of items produced. I may not “trade” for items that I would rather have. I will either take it or leave it. This is not an order service. I am happy to help keep this family farming!
I am responsible for bringing back my CLEAN containers and boxes to keep my costs low. If I need to miss a pick up, I will find and train a surrogate or simply forfeit my week. I agree to all of the following and have paid my $25 deposit to hold my/ our share. If you want to split a share with another party, it will be your responsibility to split the share on pickup day. We only package the ½ and full shares.
