Our CSA Policy
We make it convenient for you to pick up your share: For those of you that live reasonably close to the farm, we encourage you to come on one of three days to pick up your share. For those members who live further away, such as Flint, Lansing, south Ann Arbor, and the Metro-Detroit area, we will have a number of drop-off locations. We will arrange with each member a convenient way to get your weekly food share.
You can make partial payments: We most greatly appreciate the full cost of your share to be paid up front. However, if that is not possible, we will accept a payment of half down or 3–5 monthly payments of $100 each. All payment balances are due by April 1st. All payments are non-refundable. We also plan to eventually accept Credit Cards and Bridge Cards.
You can customize your share: Of course, we encourage our members to try their best to use up all the contents of their weekly share and to minimize any waste. However, you are welcome to give us a call to exclude items you cannot seem to use up or may not have any interest in using. As far as possible, we will provide you with more items that you prefer.
You can put a hold on your order: If you are leaving town, simply call us to place a hold on your order. For the number of weekly shares you miss while you’re away, we will credit you for the next season.
You can place special orders: Feel free to call us to request extra items for an event or special meal and we will add them to your next share. And if you need anything before or after your normal delivery or pick up time, call us so we can arrange to get it to you as fresh as possible.
We encourage you to try different foods: Vedic Village wants you to try all the wonderful varieties of vegetables, grains, beans, herbs, flowers, fruits and more that we plan to grow for you. Yes, maybe some of these foods you never knew existed. Others you may have heard about, but never tried. Well, one way we plan to encourage you to try these tasty foods is to include recipes with your weekly shares. In addition to this, when you arrange to visit the farm at lunchtime, we will offer you free of charge a delicious lovingly prepared meal that will most likely include some foods that may be new to you.
