What am I committing to?

  1. In joining the CSA, members have chosen to partner with the PTF farmers, sharing in both the risks and bounty.
  2. 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)
  3. Members will not receive their money back if, for whatever reason, they decide to discontinue shares once the season has started.
