Community Supported Agriculture is a direct connection between local farmers (us) and consumers (you). In a region that is “developing” as rapidly as ours, keeping small farms viable is one way to assure there will be agricultural land, green space and locally grown produce for many years to come. C.S.A. programs seek to maintain direct contact between farmers and consumers, putting a human face on agriculture and the food supply.
With a “regular” C.S.A. you get a box of produce every week and you have to accept what the Farmer puts in your box whether you need or even like what they put in there. In normal C.S.A. programs you don’t have a choice on what you get it’s up to the Farmer. With our unique Market Share Program (special type of C.S.A.) instead of receiving boxes filled with produce your family may not need or want you may choose what you want, when you want it from our Market and/or Farm with your Chesterfield Berry Farm Card. No other regular C.S.A. Program gives you the kind a freedom that our Program gives you. You can use your CBF Card all at once, weekly, biweekly or just whenever you choose to use it!!
You can use the card at either location starting Jan. 1, 2013 until Dec. 31, 2013 or until the card is depleted. Even if your card is depleted you will need it for you and your family’s entrance to special C.S.A. Market Share activities and Market Share Club Member activities (if you are a Club Member). If your card is lost or stolen please contact us right away so we can replace it. CBF Card may be used until exhausted or until Dec. 31, 2013, then Card becomes invalid. Due to the inherent unpredictability of farming CBF cannot guarantee any specific item on any particular day or week. Market Share members share in the risk of weather catastrophes including drought, hurricanes, tornados, excessive rain, hail etc. and other crop failures.
Weather catastrophes can ruin crops and/or bring a premature end to any crop season. CBF can manage drought conditions with drip irrigation but can do little to manage weather risks. CBF Cards cannot be used for flags, rugs, novelty items or wine at the Market and cannot be used for paintball, gem mining, admissions, flags, rugs, novelty items, candy or pony rides at the Farm.
To purchase your Market Share or if you have any questions you can email us at email@example.com, call 804-739-2404 or come by the Market. We will take credit cards, debit cards, cash or checks. If paying by check the check must clear before you are able to pick up your Market Share package. C.S.A. Market Shares will be available to pick up after Jan. 1, 2013 at the Market. Market Shares will be available for purchase in September, 2012 until March 1, 2013. Remember if you purchase your Market Share before Dec. 31, 2012 you will receive the Bonus Club Membership for FREE. Don’t miss this opportunity, we only have 200 Shares and they go fast!
