Farmer-Shareholder Commitment

I understand that community supported agriculture is a cooperative venture between growers and eaters. As a partner in this venture, I will share the risks inherent in the planting, growing, harvesting & distribution of my produce. I understand that some crops may fail while others will do better than expected, a natural pattern in farming that may lead to some variability throughout the growing season. I will be responsible for picking up my produce weekly at the designated pod site. I also agree to share my unique talents & resources by assisting at my pod, helping with specific tasks for the farm or Planning Group, with a 4 hour time commitment or tax deductible donation to CSA-CNY Capital Fund.

About the food we grow and sell: We are farmers committed to sustainability. Grindstone Farm, LLC. has been a NOFA-NY Certified Organic grower of fruits and vegetables since 1988. In addition, we raise non-certified, “all natural, pasture raised, free range” livestock. As our marketing and distribution capacity has grown, we've added products grown by other local farmers. We have helped other farms become organic. We know our customers want to eat year-round - and our employees need a paycheck year-round - so we decided to supplement with “non-local” organic food from a wholesale source as needed. This combination works for us. We hope it works for you too. We are committed to providing source identified sustainable food to customers, and a sustainable living to ourselves and our local farm partners. Thank you for supporting community agriculture.
