- You will create a Rambling River Pastured Farm Account with as much money as you'd like.
- Each week you decide what items you want from the PRODUCT LIST. Then, call or text Meredith at 717-624-2141 by Monday night for your items to be ready on Wednesday with your PTF share.
- You will be able to request and reserve products by placing advance orders (meaning for a future week).
- You will be able to establish a repeating order (for example, 2 dozen eggs every week).
- All orders are filled on a first come, first served basis.
- Any money left in your account at the end of the season can be redeemed next season.
- Time and convenience, your share will be ready when you arrive for a quick and easy pick up on campus.
- You will receive an assortment of fresh seasonal vegetables, herbs and flowers as they become available every week.
- You will know exactly where your food came from and how it was produced. We are Certified Naturally Grown which means we don't use any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or GMO seeds, just like organic farms.
- You will be supporting a campus movement for sustainability and food justice
- You will have the opportunity to visit the farm, get to know the students and community members growing the vegetables, participate in community potlucks at PTF and join educational sessions about gardening.
- In joining the CSA, members have chosen to partner with the PTF farmers, sharing in both the risks and bounty.
- Though PTF will provide members with the best produce possible, there may be times when production is impacted by variables that are out of our control (weather and other growing conditions)
- Members will not receive their money back if, for whatever reason, decide to discontinue shares once the season has started.
