SNAP Share Program
Crimson & Clover Farm is happy to partner with Grow Food Northampton to offer 26 subsidized Community Supported Agriculture shares for the 2015 season. These weekly shares of farm produce are available to anyone who has SNAP benefits and can commit to the program for the full farm season. Other than the cost and method of payment, these shares work in exactly the same way as our regular CSA program. For more information on the CSA and how it works please see CSA Shares, the Routine, Prices, and For Members. You can download a sign-up form for the SNAP Share program here.
-For SNAP program members, Grow Food Northampton pays for half the cost of a Small Share. A Small Share is normally $450, so in the SNAP share program the Small Share will cost $225 and a Regular Share will cost $375.
-The SNAP share will be paid for monthly and can be paid in the week that your SNAP benefits renew each month. The monthly payments will be $45 for a Small Share and $75 for a Regular Share.
-The monthly payment will be processed using our SNAP card reader when you pick up your produce. All payments must be made with your SNAP card—unfortunately, it is not possible to pay for the SNAP shares with a combination of SNAP and cash or other payment methods. We regret that we cannot make exceptions to this.
-In the event that your SNAP payment is declined there will be a two-week grace period in order to pay your monthly CSA dues to the farm with your SNAP card. If for any reason the monthly dues are not paid to the farm within two weeks of the due date we will need to offer your spot in the CSA to someone on the wait list.
-In order to sign up for the program please fill out and sign the attached form (here) and send it in to us with a $25 deposit. We will refund the $25 deposit in late October for all SNAP shareholders who have paid in full for the farm season. If you leave the CSA early for any reason this deposit will not be refunded.
