Deposits & Payments
A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to reserve your share. The balance of the share is due by May 15th. If the balance is not paid in full by this date, your share will be opened up and re-sold. If any Shares remain available after May 15th, the full payment will be required when purchasing.
Payments can be made by Credit Card & PayPal through our website. If you wish to pay by cheque, your share will only be reserved once we receive the cheque in the mail. Cash will only be accepted for future deliveries if paying at our pick-up location or at a previously paid delivery.
In the event of a total crop failure (due to hail, plow-winds, etc) you will be refunded for the balance of un-received boxes. Please note: refunds will only be issued in the event of TOTAL CROP FAILURE. There is no guarantee as to which vegetables and in what quantity you will receive them, therefore no refunds will be issued if a particular vegetable is not available or not available in the quantity that other vegetables are. This is common with CSA Farms as it is impossible to predict which crops will do well and which won't based on the weather and pests that afflict on a particular year.
Our shares are good for 15 weeks of vegetable boxes starting the beginning of July and ending mid-October. This averages the cost of each weeks Full Share to $33 and each weeks Half Share to $18! (Full Share $499 / 15 = $33) (Half Share $275 / 15 = $18)
WHere and when?
Every week you can pick up your Family Farm Share box at our pick-up location in the parking lot (NW Corner) at Elim Church, 419 Slimmon Rd, Saskatoon. The pick up day every week is Thursday between 5:30pm & 7:00pm. By purchasing a share, you are agreeing to pick it up at this time. Any boxes not picked up by the end of the pick-up time on Thursday will be dealt with at our discretion.
Your other option is to choose delivery. All deliveries will be made on Thursday of each week between the hours of 3:00pm & 5:00pm. There is a delivery fee of $10.00 per delivery due the day before the deliveries (due Wednesday of each week). You can choose to pre-pay for all your deliveries when you purchase a share, or pay on a week by week basis.
If you will be away & not requiring your box you can let us know in advance of someone else who will be picking up your share, or another place you would like it to be delivered. Alternatively, you can let us know that you would like it donated and we will deliver & donate your share for the week to "The Bridge on 20th" in your honor.
