Harman’s Farm Market CSA Terms and Conditions:
Payment for a full share of Harman’s Farm Market CSA entitles members to a weekly box of fruits, vegetables, and/or flowers grown and harvested at Harman’s Farm and/or Shaw Orchards, our local partnering orchard. Payment for a weekly half share entitles members to a half share every week. Additional items such as cheese, eggs, honey, cider, and blueberries from other Harford County farms may also be included. By joining Harman’s Farm Market CSA, the farm and the CSA members are agreeing to share in the risk of the growing season and any resulting crop failures. Payments made to the CSA are non-refundable after the start of the CSA season.
Harman’s Farm Market CSA runs from approximately the middle of May through the end of September. The farm makes every effort to abide by this guideline, but be aware that extremes in weather conditions may make adjustments necessary. Due to the seasonality of fruits and vegetables, there may be weeks (especially in the early part of the season) in which the produce is not as abundant. This will balance out as the season progresses.
Harman’s Farm Market wants its CSA members to know that they are always our first priority when it comes to supplying them with fresh fruits and vegetables. Although we sell our fruits and vegetables at our roadside market, as well as a farmers’ market and some restaurants, filling the CSA shares will always take precedence.
It is the member’s responsibility to pick up his/her share between 10:00 am and 5:30 pm on his/her designated day each week or to contact Harman’s Farm Market to make other arrangements. If the member, or a designated person, cannot pick up their share within 24 hours of their assigned day, the share will be donated to a local needy family(s).
It is the member’s responsibility to return his/her box or bag from the previous week’s share.
Harman’s Farm will communicate with CSA members primarily by email. When members sign up, they will be added to our distribution list. Please read all emails from the farm. We depend on being able to communicate to you important information such as emergency changes to your pick up day or offers for bulk specials. If your email address changes, please inform us as soon as possible.
By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, the CSA member hereby releases, indemnifies and agrees to hold harmless Harman’s Farm Market, its agents and employees from any and all claims and/or liability from being on the farm property, from the purchase of a CSA membership or the use or consumption of food provided by the farm. The Member agrees to purchase the membership share indicated on the order form. The Member understands that, although highly unlikely, the farm may change parts of this agreement related to production and distribution from time to time. The Member understands that the farm will contact him/her via email in advance of any changes to these terms and conditions.
