In response to natural foodie. Your representations are inaccurate. There never was a water supply problem. Mike and Terri hired a professional for the commercial license, survey and permitting water process prior to starting their business, and operated their business for two years thinking they were in full compliance with all laws. They did not find out about a problem until a City employee showed up to shut down their water, stating they had the wrong permit.
Regarding your public humiliation; I have the email you are referring to, and unless you divulged your identity yourself, this statement is inaccurate. The message states a member (no name mentioned) was dissatisfied with their shares and Mike immediately sought input from other members.
I have always received flavorful and organic produce.
Mike and Terri are always honest with their situation, and take pride in providing organic, local products.
The previous CSA I belonged to actually purchased produce from Wholefoods, passing it off as their own. Additionally, I would wait up to an hour for deliveries at designated meeting places and I was constantly frustrated with the lack of follow through, reliability and false promises. Perhaps you are comfortable with these shortcomings, but I prefer honesty and will stay with Rise and Shine Farms for my third year in a row.
I am sorry you feel you were so wronged. I wish you well.
