Enjoy fresh Flowers during the Seton Harvest CSA season
Say yes! Fresh from the Farm seasonal blooms are available through a bi-weekly bouquet subscription offer and will be ready and waiting for you when you pick up your Seton Harvest CSA share.
With a bouquet subscription you will receive a beautiful farmers' market style bouquet full of seasonal bounty including flowers, herbs, vegetables and foliage I grow or forage from my land.
I invite you to review the available subscription options below, visit the bi-weekly delivery schedule and read through the FAQs. And if you are not familiar with Darnell School Farm, please visit me on Facebook or Instagram to get a look inside the Farm.
I will begin accepting subscription orders on Wednesday, May 1, 2019
I am projecting first bouquet delivery the week of May 21, 2019
Applicable Indiana Sales Tax will be added to the purchase price at time of payment. No delivery fee is associated with the Seton Harvest CSA member subscriptions.
Bouquet Subscription FAQs:
What is a Flower bouquet Subscription?
When you sign up for a flower subscription, you will receive a farmers’ market style bouquet of fresh flowers every other week (see bi-weekly delivery schedule). It is similar to your vegetable CSA, but for flowers.
The first week your bouquet is delivered to your designated pick up location (Epworth or Seton Harvest farm) with a vase that is car cup holder friendly. All following weeks your bouquet is delivered hand tied resting in a bucket of water with other bouquets, so please bring your vase with you at the time of pickup.
A packet of flower food is provided and I encourage you to use this to prolong the life of your flowers – they get hungry too!
How Long Will The Bouquet Last?
Your bouquet will include a variety of seasonal blooms, each with its own natural life span, on average the bouquet will last 7-10 days with good care which includes utilizing the flower food that is provided with the bouquet, maintaining a clean vase and displaying the flowers in a cool location out of direct sun light.
Please see all the tips for caring for your bouquet of fresh flowers.
When Does the flower bouquet subscription program run?
For 2019, I am projecting subscriptions will begin the week of May 21st and continue through September 28. You will be able to order a subscription up Friday, August 9, pending availability.
Please note, subscriptions will be delivered on a set bi-weekly schedule. The bi-weekly calendar can be accessed HERE.
How Do I pay For A Subscription?
For 2019, I have moved to credit card based installment billing for all subscriptions so that my customers are effectively paying for two bi-weekly bouquets at a time.
My website provider Squarespace has enabled this new subscription feature. Each customer will complete their purchase on my website one time and then automatically they will be billed for the respective number of installments without having to revisit the site. The initial installment is made at the time the order is placed with each subsequent installment due in 4 week increments (or another way to look at it in two bi-weekly bouquet increments). Billing details are contained on the Order Confirmation that is e-mailed to each customer, no additional billing notices are sent.
I have not activated an automatic renewal feature. As an example, if you purchase a 8 week subscription and then decide later to add another 8 weeks, you will need to complete a new order for the second 8 week period.
In a nut shell, how does a flower bouquet subscription work?
On this website, you select the length of the subscription;
You select your pick-up day/location to coincide with your CSA pick up;
You sign up for installment payment by credit card to Darnell School Farm;
I will provide you confirmation and general information via e-mail;
I will deliver your bouquet to Seton Harvest per the bi-weekly calendar; and
You pick up your bouquet along with your CSA share for the week.
What if You Are on vacation?
Please consider gifting your subscription bouquet for that week to a fellow shareholder, friend or family member and provide them with the pick up information including the recommendation to bring a vase along for transport.
What if You do not pick up your bouquet?
I will be following Seton Harvest's policy, if you are unable to pick up your bouquet, it will be donated to the residents at a near by retirement facility.
What if Darnell School Farm does not deliver my bouquet?
I take my commitment to you seriously; however, I grow everything in the field which may be impacted by weather, wildlife and other factors out of my control. Should a bouquet delivery be missed, I will add a week to your subscription or refund your payment for that week based on your preference.
