I. Sign-ups, Payments, and Membership
Joining Good Food Farmers Network (GFFN) means creating an online account, selecting a default box, and paying for your first box. This can all be done online, or via phone if you need a hand. Please don’t hesitate to contact us via email or phone if you have any questions during the signup process.
- If paying by credit card, first create an account online, choose your weekly default box, and enter your credit card information.
- If paying by check, first create an account online. Then, mail us a check for $400 or more payable to: Good Food Farmers Network, c/o Dog Wood Farm, 85 Hartigan Road, Old Chatham, NY 12136. We will put the money on your account and will notify you once we have posted the check. You can then log onto your account and choose your default box. Your account will be automatically debited prior to each delivery. You will be alerted when your account dips below $80. We cannot deliver your items if there are insufficient funds in your account. Please log in to your online account to check your balance at any time.
Your GFFN membership is not confirmed until you have created an online account and we have received payment for your first box.
II. Refunds, Changes, and Cancellations
If any of your items are missing from the pick-up site during the designated pick-up time or are damaged or otherwise unsatisfactory, please contact us within 24 hours so that we may apply a credit to your account.
You may choose to customize your box each week. These changes may be made via your online account or via phone, if you need a hand. Changes must be made prior to close of your site’s weekly order deadline for the changes to take effect by the upcoming delivery. Changes made by phone must be made at least 48 hours in advance of the order deadline.
If you are unsatisfied, you may cancel your participation in Good Food Farmers Network at anytime by calling us or sending us an email. Cancellations must be received before the order window closes otherwise your card will be charged for the upcoming week. Please note, if you cancel after the order window closes, your card will be charged for the week’s delivery. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
If you will be unable to pick-up your items, please log in to your account and place your box on hold for the week. You must place your box on hold prior to the order deadline; otherwise, your card will be charged and the items delivered. If you miss the order deadline, you may choose to (a) have your items picked up by someone else or (b) donate your items to a local food pantry. In either case, please send us an email to let us know!
IV. Pick-up Protocols
It is your responsibility to pick up your items during the designated time period. Out of respect for our host sites and staff, please know that pick up times are firm. Any items unclaimed by the end of the pick up period will be donated at the discretion of the host site and GFFN staff.
Help reduce waste by bringing back your reusable shopping bags. Thank you for your help in this regard!
A clipboard with a sign-out sheet will be at each pick-up. Please be sure to sign by your name to confirm that you took your bag and received all of the items you ordered for the week. If your name is not on the list, it means we did not pack items for you. If you have any questions, please speak with the on-site GFFN staff person. Please do not take any items if your name is not on the list! If we have made an error in packing your items, or if your name is on the list but your items are not at the site, please contact us by email or phone within 24 hours. We will add a credit to your account, and we sincerely apologize for any mistake!
The sign-out list is our way of indicating the delivery of your box. Please do not write notes on the list itself. If you need to contact us for any reason, please call or email us. We are happy to help resolve any issues or answer any questions that may arise.
