Ambrose Family Farm CSA Membership Information

We are very glad you are interested in becoming a member of Ambrose Family Farm CSA. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you read and understand how OUR CSA works before you fill out the application and make your payment.

Each farm and farmer has their own way of doing things, so each CSA is a little different. One of the major differences between our CSA and others is that we distribute IN your share only produce and berries that we grow. We do offer other items you can purchase on our web site and have delivered to your pickup point with your share, but they are purchased separately from your CSA Share.

You may choose options-add on items like eggs-to be delivered weekly with your share. Some are ours and some are not, but they are all top quality.

Thanks to all of you who support us and other local farms and farmers through CSA Programs or 'buy local' programs. If you need assistance, please call Babs Ambrose at Stono Market, 843-559-9999 or call the Farm @ 843-559-0988.

Seasonal CSA registration is open about 3 months before the upcoming season begins. Use link at the bottom of the page. Yearly membership option is open at all times and will renew 1 year from the date purchased. Yearly subscribers receive 51 deliveries for the price of 48.
It's important to signup early for CSA. It gives your farmer the advantage of purchasing the right variety of seed for our growing conditions, to plan and plant for the number of members there will be, and to secure help and pickup locations that will benefit the coming seasons membership. There is NO signup FEE associated with early signup, whereas late signup carries a $20 fee that covers the rush orders on seed and the longer hours for farm crew who are responsible for planting for CSA.

Instructions:

1) Please complete the application form carefully.

2) Become familiar with the Pick Up Points.

3) Payment secures your slot as a CSA Member. Without payment, your application will be held on "Waiting List" and will not be counted until payment is received.

4) If you have received a GIFT CERTIFICATE, please complete the sign up application, use the "Certificate CODE" on the payment page and/or call Babs to record your payment as Gift Certificate. Congratulations! We hope you enjoy your gift.
