Deliveries will continue without receipt of payment.  If you choose to place a hold on your account you can re-activate it at anytime. 

-Any hold requests or changes to your csa delivery schedule and web order must be made 48 hours in advance of your delivery date. If the program will not allow this, contact the office.

-If you entered your credit card for payment and chose a payment plan schedule, your card will automatically be charged according to this schedule.

-Payments for Bi-weekly subscriptions are processed according to the number of deliveries. The minimum credit card payment amount is $96. This amount pays for 4 delivery dates. The same is true for bi-weekly quarterly payments, you will be charged $312 this amount will pay for 13 deliveries (roughly 6 months). If you would like to pay in smaller monthly installments for a biweekly subscription, you can continue to send a check to the farm. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
