Farm Share Member Benefits
Farm Share members are our top priority and receive first pick. In times of bounty, members receive extra items or increased volume in exchange for their support of our farm business.
WEATHER, CROP AVAILABILITY, AND THE RISKS OF SUSTAINABLE FARMING
Empress Green's farmers have been growing vegetables for several seasons. We are confident that our operation is well equipped to satisfy the needs of our Farm Share.
However, farming is a business with inherent risks: weather conditions, equipment failure, unforeseen pest and plant disease issues, and even occasionally, farmer error, can all negatively affect crop yields. While we will take all practical steps to mitigate these risks, we cannot reimburse, refund, or otherwise compensate for crop failures or low yields.
By becoming a member of our Farm Share you are agreeing that these risks are included in Farm Share membership.
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS
Membership in our Farm Share is a commitment to purchase and pick up produce for an entire growing season. We generally do not offer refunds or allow cancellations, however we will consider exceptions on a case-by-case, basis for the following issues: Major loss of household income due to unexpected unemployment or disability, death or disaster, unexpected relocation, and unresolved customer service issues. A $50 administrative fee will be deducted from any refund issued. No refunds for the current season will be issued after September 1. Refunds given are prorated to the number of weeks remaining.
If you can’t make it to pick-up your Farm Share, you may gift your week's share to a friend. Please read the section below on "sending someone in your place." There are no refunds for missed pick-ups or forgotten shares, we donate all leftovers to Project Hospitality food bank in Stapleton.
SENDING SOMEONE IN YOUR PLACE TO PICK-UP YOUR SHARE
If you are unavailable to pick up your share we encourage you to send someone in your place. Please give your substitute thorough instructions. Make sure they know where and when the pick-up location is, and that they need to pick up the share with your name on it.
