SHIPPING INFORMATION FOR CSA
Shipping is free to Fairfield and Maharishi Vedic City, $8 to other Iowa locations and the neighboring states of Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. If you live in another state the shipping cost is $18. Shipping is billed to your credit card when each Vedic CSA box is shipped during the season. Weekly orders are usually shipped on Tuesday or Wednesday to arrive in 1-2 days (3 days for farthest locations). Local deliveries are normally made on Wednesday. We will let you know if due to weather, etc. deliveries will be on a different day.
Our Guarantee to You
Please let us know immediately if you receive a CSA box that is damaged or does not include the items you requested from the available selections, and we will promptly send you a replacement box or supplemental items. If you do not receive your delivery in any week, we will give you a replacement box or a credit for another box when you want it. If you have already subscribed to receive boxes each week for a whole season, this can be a credit toward your next seasonal order.
If you spend part of your time in New York and part in Florida, for example, and want your CSA order to go where you are, just let us know the location for the upcoming week and we will ship to you there. Or if you need to take a break from deliveries due to your travel or whatever reason, no problem. That is the reason that we have an extra week in each season. For example the Winter, Spring and Summer seasons are each 13 weeks but you are only paying for 12 weeks each season. You can take a week off whenever you like or if due to weather or other circumstances beyond our control we cannot ship in a week, that can also be the extra week for the season.
If you want to stop your order completely, we are happy to replace anything you are not happy with and we are also happy to send boxes from your order to your friends or family on your behalf. You can also ask us to donate your remaining order to a non-profit organization in our local Maharishi Vedic City/Fairfield area where delivery is free. We will notify the non-profit organization of your gift and deliver what they request each week based on the value of your remaining subscription.
Because this is a CSA, community-supported agriculture program, where we use the funds you pay for your subscription to buy seeds and plant and grow each of our over 70 vegetables crops, we are sorry but we are not able to make cash refunds after you have subscribed and paid for your order.
SHIPPING INFORMATION FOR PLANTS, HERBS AND FLOWERS
Plants will ship to you in a small transplant size—the best size for producing healthy plants in your garden. Each plant is in an individual 2.5” wide pot. The plants are carefully packaged and shipped two-day delivery.
All herbs and spring vegetable plants (rainbow chard, scarlet kale, broccoli, broccoli raab, and cauliflower) are available for shipping beginning late April each year. All summer plants and flowers are available beginning mid-May each year, except for snapdragons and stock which will be available two weeks later.
If we do not have enough of the plants you would like in stock, you can choose another option or we can grow the plants for you which takes 3-7 weeks depending on the type of plant you order.
Some states have restrictions on shipping certain categories of live plants from other states. If there is any problem shipping what you have ordered, we will let you know right away so that you can select other plants that are allowed in your state.
If you have a major landscaping project or you are a grower or landscaper and would like to order in flats of 50 or 128 plants each, with a minimum of 4 flats per order, please call or e-mail us for quantity pricing and shipping. Large orders will be custom grown and take 3-7 weeks to be shipped, depending on the variety.
