One aspect of CSAs is that members support their farmer by sharing in the inherent risks of agriculture (poor
weather, drought, disease, early frost, crop failure and so on) and rewards (the bounty from a good season.)
CSA farmers purposely plan for such contingencies, and use growing techniques that protect the harvest, to
minimize risk to members and optimize the rewards. We grow a wide variety of crops that thrive in different
types of conditions, we utilize cover cropping, crop rotation, irrigation, and high tunnel production practices.
Moreover, the CSA builds relationships of trust between the farmer and community group. On the whole,
members will get a wide variety of vegetables in plentiful amounts. Pendleton’s Country Market will act in
good faith to provide fresh produce for the duration of the season, however, there is no guarantee of quantities
or contents of weekly shares. Members are welcome to split a share with someone. However, share, splitting is the responsibility of the member. Pendleton’s Country Market does not manage the splitting of shares. Many members work out arrangements to share with their friends and neighbors, when they
have to leave town during the growing season.
As a CSA member, you agree to pick up my share at your chosen pick-up site during the set time period. If you will
be away or otherwise unable to pick up your share, you will make arrangements for someone else to pick it up for
you. Any shares not claimed on the day of delivery will be donated to Just Foods.
It is important to read the CSA Newsletter every week, AND understand important news and
information about your weekly CSA is shared through the online newsletter. We ask that you would be an active
participant in the CSA program, and will contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
