TERMS OF SALE
4.1 CSA Subscriptions; Cancellation Policy
CSA Subscriptions. We offer different subscription plans for our seasonal farm box (each, a "CSA Subscription”). For more information about our CSA Subscriptions, please visit the FAQs. If for any reason you cannot pickup your CSA share for the entire duration of the season and/or share time frame, please pick another party to transfer your share to for said remainder. Please then email us at email@example.com to inform us of the change.
4.2 Payment and Billing Information
By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your subscription or other purchase (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (collectively, as applicable, an “Order”). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your Order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your Order. In the event you want to change or update payment information associated with your Good Seed Garden account, you can do so at any time by logging into your account and editing your payment information.
You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers, changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount.
4.3 Pricing and Availability
All of our Products are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any Order, to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain Products and to substitute Products (including, but not limited to, specific produce items) without prior notice. We strive to provide you with high-quality Products, and given the perishable nature of certain Products and market conditions beyond our control, we may be required to make substitutions from time to time. If you are not satisfied with a substitution, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you subscribe to your CSA Membership, you are agreeing to pay the total subscription price for the mix of items included in that delivery. The items chosen for your subscription produce items add up to total your subscription price. Individual prices are not available for these specific items as your purchase is of the mixed box, not the individual items.
If you wish to purchase extra produce items and go over your subscription price, you will pay the displayed Market Specials price, which is a discounted price, on the extra produce items in addition to your subscription amount.
You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues upon delivery. In addition, you are solely responsible for determining the freshness of the Products you receive. You should always inspect your delivery to confirm that the Products arrive in a cool condition. From the time of delivery, the condition and consumption of the Products are solely at your risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper and safe washing, handling, preparation, storage, cooking, use and consumption of the Products following delivery. We recommend that you follow the USDA’s instructions on safe food handling, which can be found here. Failure to follow safe food handling practices and temperature recommendations may increase the risk of foodborne illness. In addition, pregnant women, young children, the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems should follow the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recommendations on food consumption for at-risk groups, which can be found here.
In the case of inclement weather or other events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver your Order, we will attempt to deliver your Order as soon as reasonably possible. In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. In the event that timely delivery of your Order is not feasible, we will cancel your Order for the period so affected and issue you a credit or refund of the purchase price for that order delivery.
4.5 No Resale
You are not permitted to resell or otherwise use the Products for commercial purposes.
4.6 Product Descriptions
Good Seed Garden attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Good Seed Garden does not warrant that product descriptions, photos, or other content of any product is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. We at Good Seed Garden are farmers and know that farmers cannot grow items that are all perfect and all exactly uniform. For this reason, weights displayed are approximate and intended to communicate approximate amounts of produce that you will receive. While we don’t anticipate weights to be incorrect, your sole remedy for any error or documented weight-related issue will be resolved via a credit or refund for the product in question.
4.7 Returns and Refunds
If you are dissatisfied with any product, please contact us at goodseedgarden.com within 48 hours of your delivery and, depending on the circumstances, we will provide you a full or partial credit of the purchase price for that product. We may require the return or photographic documentation of any product with which you are dissatisfied before we provide you a replacement or credit.
