Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and
Terms of Service (ToS)
What is a Farm Share?
Each individual or family purchases, in advance, a share, called a subscription, of the year’s crop. Customers are essentially partners or ‘co-producers’ in the farm, sharing risk and reward with the farm family. Throughout the growing season, each member receives equal shares of the freshly harvested flowers, herbs and foliage or from the farmer. This program is also know as Community Supported Agriculture or Community Shared Agriculture CSA. By purchasing a share with us, you’re supporting our farm, and you’re also helping to grow a healthy, eco-friendly local business.
At Damsel Garden weekly bouquets are created with local, seasonal, and organically grown blooms. We are a toxin free farm, all our flowers and vegetables are grown without the use of any pesticides or herbicides.

What if I go on vacation?
If you take a holiday, we ask that you arrange for someone else to pick up your blooms while you’re away.
How do I care for my flowers?
Can I specify which flowers I want in my weekly bouquets?
At this time we do not do custom or special requests. We create each bouquet according to what is blooming and available, which is part of the fun of a farm share subscription. We will try to keep it new and exciting for you.
Can I buy a Share for someone else as a gift?
When you sign up for a flower share and authorize someone other than yourself to pickup your flowers. They will need to agree to the Terms of Service. At the moment, we do not offer gift cards or certificates yet.
Can I cancel my CSA Membership and refund my money?
We rely on our CSA Memberships for revenue to keep our farm running and our blooms blooming, however we also understand that life can serve up some challenges. For 2020 shares, refunds will be available up to one week after the purchase of your farm share.
Becoming a farm share member means supporting a farm that is at the mercy of unpredictable weather, pests, and plagues. Shares are vital to our survival. We ask that rather than cancelling, you consider gifting/selling/transferring your membership to someone who will appreciate weekly flowers from an eco-friendly local grower.
Do we do Weddings?
At this time we cannot take on big events, we can however cater to the Do it Yourself bride and event planner. Please contact us for more information about spending a day at the farm with your party and purchasing buckets of seasonal blooms for your special events.
And finally, if any share member’s behavior towards our team is deemed abusive or inappropriate, their share membership will be cancelled without refund.
Thank you, we look forward to growing beautiful flowers for you! If you have any other questions, just say firstname.lastname@example.org.
