- Subscribers are responsible for picking up their produce regularly. The subscriber will notify the farmers at least a week in advance if s/he is going to be away and will not be picking up produce. Subscribers are encouraged to find substitutes (friends, neighbors, family, etc.) to get that week’s share. If the farmers are not notified and the pick up is not made, the produce will be donated.
- Dayspring Farm maintains an open farm policy, and subscribers are welcome to visit the farm and see how their food is grown.
- Dayspring farmers are active in local and regional associations with other organic and sustainable growers including the Virginia Association for Biological Farming.
