CSA: Community Supported Agriculture
Why Deep Roots?
Deep Roots is a mutli-farm CSA. All farms are local and have entered into this partnership to grow the best, freshest, and cleanest produce for you. Deep Roots has been formed by Chandler Family Farm, Mabank,TX ; Highway 19 Produce & Berries, Athens,TX; and Gopher Knoll Farm, Athens, TX. Since each farm contributes items weekly to the boxes, a variety of vegetables is assured and the possibility of crop failure for any reason is limited. All will be grown without the use of pesticides or GMO's. Everything in your share will be grown by us, we do not bring in any outside produce or fruit. Also, you will know which farm provided which vegetables each week. We want you to be fully informed considering this is an investment and support for all farms involved.
How it works!
Your Commitment: As a CSA member, you are essentially a shareholder in our farms, sharing both the benefits and the risks. Your investment at the beginning of the season provides funding for our farmers to grow your food. Because of this, we cannot offer refunds or cancel subscriptions after the second week of the season.
You will have a choice of site to pick up your box each week in either Mabank or Athens. Boxes will be delivered to your site by 1:00 pm on Tuesday or Friday of each week. You agree to pick up your box prior to closing time of that business. Boxes that are not picked up within 24 hrs will be donated.
If you will not be able to pick up your box within 24 hrs of delivery, you may ask a friend or family member to pick it up for you. Or you may ask that we donate your box to a local food pantry that week. If you would like to donate your box, please let us know 24 hrs in advance of delivery.
The benefits of membership:
Farmer's Commitment: We commit to using only natural and sustainable methods to grow our vegetables. While our farms are not certified organic, everything we grow is free from pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). We commit to transparency in our farming methods and encourage you to visit and ask questions so you are fully informed.
We also commit to having your box of fresh veggies ready for your pickup on time each week. In the event of a storm or other weather that prevents on-time delivery, you will be notified by text or email. Delivery will be made as quickly as possible after the weather passes.
