Farm Share Full Terms of Service
By signing up for JulBud Ranch CSA (The Ranch) you (Member) are agreeing to the following:
Member agrees to pay the membership fee and in exchange, The Ranch promises to provide Member with fresh, local, seasonal food for the growing season indicated above, as available.
The Ranch’s Farm Share Season runs for 15 weeks or from approximately the week of June 18th to the fourth week in September.
Growing Practices of the Ranch: The Ranch is not certified organic but uses organic and regenerative practices
Member will receive on average 1 or 2 grocery bags each pick up which is usually 5-6 different produce items or about 5 pounds of food.
Member will be expected to pick up your share once a week from The Ranch at 460 s 9500 e Huntsville, Utah.
Farm Share Fridges will be stocked every Wednesday morning and Sunday evening. Members can pick up bags at any time Mon-Sat when it is convenient for them. Bags will be marked with Member’s name. Any bags remaining in the Farm Share fridges on Sunday will be put to use in The Ranch Kitchen or sold elsewhere.
If Members have added additional items to their Farm Share order through the website, those items will be added to the bags in the fridges and an email will be sent to Member to inform them their items have been added to the Farm Share bags.
Member should double check their order at pickup for any extra items.
Member is responsible for observing the Ranch’s following pick-up rules:
Pick up Member’s share each week. The Ranch’s products can deteriorate if not picked up on time and stored properly.
Member’s may park in front of The Ranch, or in the driveway. Please try to avoid parking in front of neighbors houses or in the street.
If Member cannot pick up Member’s share, Member may arrange for substitute to pick up share. Member will need to explain the pickup site location and procedures to Member’s substitute If you need to speak to us while at The Ranch and we are not outside, please use the doorbell instead of knocking. We hear the doorbell better.
Risk of Crop Failure By joining The Ranch’s CSA:
Both The Ranch and Member are agreeing to share in the risk of crop failure, due to factors such as inclement weather, pests, and acts of God. If a crop failure does happen, The Ranch’s normal policy is as follows: We will provide other crops that are ready to harvest or provide other non-produce items in your order such as canned goods, soaps, honey, etc. that match the value of produce items. In the event of a substantial crop failure, a refund of the share fee is available. However, The Ranch reserves the right to deviate from these policies.
The Ranch’s production is exclusively for the Farm and Members. When The Ranch has surplus crops, The Ranch will provide Member with as much as possible, but The Ranch does not want to overwhelm Member with products that may go to waste. When The Ranch experiences surplus, The Ranch will first make crops available for members to have extras from. Second, will preserve crops for The Ranch’s own use. Third, will sell excess crops to the general public. The Ranch does not segregate Farm Share production, but Farm Share production does receive our priority. In the event of a crop surplus, other markets will be served after The Ranch has satisfied Member’s shares or the surplus cannot be used in the Ranch’s own kitchen.
Selling Farm Share memberships helps The Ranch reduce the burden of up-front costs (such as seeds, tillage, and other inputs) before the season starts. The Ranch appreciates Member’s commitment to The Ranch.
By submitting the agreement, you are agreeing to pay the membership fee for share indicated above. Payments for full season are refundable until June 15th. After June 15th, if you choose to stop participating in the Farm Share program, a refund amount, minus the weeks of produce already received will be grated. Payment for weekly or bi-weekly payments can be refunded in full as long the items have not been collected. The Ranch may, in its discretion, consider a request from a Member to downsize a share and may or may not grant a refund upon downsizing.
