Odyssey Market Garden is committed to bringing the highest quality vegetables to its CSA customers. We pledge to provide seasonal veggie boxes starting in mid-May until mid-October. We will use our combined experience to mitigate any challenges presented by weather, insects, or plant disease.
You, as the Shareholder, commit to picking up your vegetables from one of our pick up locations each week. If you cannot make the pick up date, you are responsible to either have someone else pick up your vegetables for that week, or to have your share donated that week. Due to the number of shareholders involved, pick up times and locations are not flexible.
You, as the Shareholder, commit to understanding the challenges of growing seasonal vegetables. If the forces of nature make certain crops less available, you will accept that with grace and understanding. We, the farmers, commit to working with a large variety of vegetables so as to minimize any potential effects of losing a crop or two. We commit to using our experience, good techniques and equipment to provide you with the best quality of vegetables for the duration of the season.
You, as the Shareholder, commit to reading all of the CSA information found on this website, and to educate yourself about what being part of a CSA is like. We, the farmers, commit to providing you with information from the farm throughout the season through weekly blog updates. We commit to providing you with opportunities to visit the farms and take part in vegetable growing should you want to. Together, we commit to contributing to a more healthy, safe and sustainable food system that is locally-oriented, and that inspires community interaction around food. We, the farmers, look forward to getting to know you and enjoying the season together.
The first 10 weeks of the membership is non-refundable. You may withdraw for the second-half of the season (the remaining 10 weeks) if a minimum notice of 30-days is given.
