Expensive Members of the Farm,
We need to clarify and hopefully clear some issues up relating to the mushrooms.
That is the primary time we are attempting supply mushrooms to our members. We thought this is able to be one thing new and thrilling to attempt, and to make obtainable to all of our members. The mushroom supply is offered to ALL CSA members, no matter subscribing to a fruit share or not. That is what we think about and add-on.
The primary submit on the weblog and within the publication was a survey to gauge curiosity. We didn’t plan on utilizing that suggestions as precise orders – each in case individuals modified their minds or if we have been unable to safe mushrooms. We didn’t imply to confuse or frustrate anybody or trigger a misunderstanding.
We have been beneath the impression we have been to take orders up till this week and ship in our numbers this weekend. Then that quantity can be planted and prepared for harvest in September. Issues modified relatively shortly this week after we acquired a name from the seller on Tuesday. They’ve a specific amount prepared to reap this weekend that shall be delivered to us subsequent week. We by no means noticed that coming!
The seller does have a minimal and a most they may ship to us. So many issues are up within the air (which is regular for farmers). We have no idea when the deliveries shall be nor do we all know what number of kilos they are going to be harvesting and sending to us. There additionally could possibly be completely different varieties (apart from lion’s mane) that will come, together with completely different costs. We’ll presumably have 1, 2, and even 3 extra deliveries up till October.
One in all our priorities is to attempt to ensure everybody that wishes mushrooms will obtain them at the very least 1 time. For our 2nd supply, we need to fill as many orders as attainable that won’t obtain mushrooms with the first supply. Then we’ll fill reccurring orders. This can be a lot of organizing and attempting to maintain straight on our finish. We consider there’s a pretty excessive probability for everybody that places in an order for mushrooms to obtain some at the very least one time. We’ll solely invoice you as we all know your order shall be stuffed. If you wish to ship a cost, we’ll cling on to your verify till we all know you might be on the record for the following supply. The workplace (Linda) will attempt our greatest to electronic mail you as you might be to obtain mushrooms.
