Welcome to the signup for the Lexington Community Farm 2017 Summer CSA!
Please read the following before completing the signup form.
We require all Lexington Community Farm CSA shareholders to hold a 2017 LexFarm membership at the Household level or higher. LexFarm membership is not included in the cost of the CSA. If you need to renew or you are not already a LexFarm member, after you complete the CSA signup form, be sure to visit our membership page at http://lexfarm.org/membership.
LexFarm Membership is deductible as a charitable contribution.
Summer Produce CSA Cost
The CSA share is $600 for 20 weeks of once a week pickup of locally grown produce at the farm stand. You must select your pickup option at signup.
We also offer 10 week CSA shares. With this option you pick up every other week throughout the CSA season. This 10 week CSA share is $325. You must select your pickup option at signup. We will assign you to a pickup group (odd or even weeks) when we process your signup.
If you sign up before April 1, you have the option to make two payments. Payment of the first half is due at signup with the balance due on April 1, 2017. Payments by check must be received by LexFarm within one week of signup. If no payment is received within a week of sign-up, you risk losing your share if shares sell out. Priority will go to signups in the order they complete payment.
For the 20 week CSA, the first payment is $300. For the 10 week CSA, the first payment of $175. You can also choose to pay in full at signup.
After April 1, you must pay in full upon signup.
Splitting a Share with Another Household
If you would like to split your share (10- or 20-week), you will need to provide contact information for the additional shareholder so we can stay in touch with all shareholders once the season begins. To simplify administration, the primary shareholder will be our single point of contact during the signup/confirmation process, so please take responsibility for addressing any issues with your share that are brought to your attention by our volunteer CSA administrator. We will administer your share as one share, so you will need to coordinate the single weekly pickup, payment, etc. between yourselves.
All participating households must maintain a 2017 LexFarm membership at the Household level (or higher). Please remind the second household to join or renew their LexFarm membership here: lexfarm.org/membership
Flower share can be added to your produce share or purchased separately for $100. The flower share consists of 2 pick-your-own flower bouquets per week for 10 consecutive weeks. Start date will depend on growing conditions but started in July last season. Flower shares are subject to state sales tax of 6.25%. We ask that flower shareholders who do not participate in our vegetable CSA become 2017 LexFarm members at at least the Individual level.
If you opt to pay online by credit card, a small fee will be added to cover the PayPal processing costs. To save the PayPal fees, choose to pay by check.
If you choose to pay by check, the check must be received within a week of your signup. The balance must be paid by April 1. For produce shares, if full payment for your CSA share and all participating households’ memberships are received before February 15, you will receive a coupon that entitles you to one pick-your-own flower bouquet during the summer.
