We ask all new subscribers to carefully read through the following guidelines. This creates a clear understanding between the farmer and member.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) was a model originally conceived in the idea that neighbors buy a “share” of the farm at the beginning of the season, covering the cost of seed, irrigation parts, compost, packing supplies, and the myriad of things that the farmer needed to get the season going, and taking on some of the risk that the farmer carries in planting, tending and harvesting crops. In exchange, the “share-owners” received fresh, seasonal produce from the farm on a regular basis. It is based on mutual respect between the customers and the farmers. Our current CSA model assumes this structure, but has evolved to give the subscriber more freedom in when and how much they pay at a time for their subscription.
Payments: We use a program called Farmigo to help manage the financial interactions between our customers and our farm. With it, Goodman Farms subscribers have online access to their own accounts. We accept payment via Paypal, Credit Card or E-Check (bank account)..
Manual Payment: your card or purchase wont be deducted until night of delivery or pickup!
Communication: Goodman Farms publishes a weekly \ bi- weeklkly newsletter that subscribers receive via email. The newsletter will announce any important changes in delivery schedule, prices, policies, etc.

Refund / Credit: If you believe you deserve a credit for poor quality, damaged, or otherwise unsaleable produce, please email us. We will evaluate cases individually. Be sure to include what day/time you picked up the produce, how it was stored, and pictures if possible.
