Looking for advice from experienced CSA people.
Signed up for a local CSA.
Delivered to our home on Fridays
"Bonus" 70lbs of meat
Deliveries started later than expected, we got about 9 deliveries, questioning if some of the veggies were bought at the grocery store and we never got a full basket, pictures on their Facebook page showing him feeding "just picked field ripened" (his exact words). He threw in the towel after the 9th delivery and said there would be no more veggies and would be in touch for the meat. Of course no one has heard from him. He promised one person a refund and nothing has come yet even though that promise was months ago and when she speaks to him he gives her a drop off time and he never shows.
I can understand the risk you take on the vegetable part of the CSA to some extent but am annoyed when I see is animals eating his crops, his pictures of veggies we have never gotten, but were on his list when soliciting for members, etc. The meat is another story. He would have had to have these animals before we even signed up and it now appears he did not as 2 calfs and one pig are not enough to fulfill his promise to all the people who signed up with him.
Trying to figure out if there is anything we can do as it appears this was a scam from the start.
