Representative for “Farm Fresh to You” canvassed our condominium complex, despite the no solicitor signs posted at the entrances. I should have told him to go away, as I do with most solicitors. But, he seemed really nice, and explained how wonderful this company was because it was a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and promised that if I wasn’t satisfied with my first delivery I would not need to pay. I wasn’t satisfied, it was a handful of fruit and partially wilted lettuce leaves (for $23 introductory price – more than $30 thereafter!). I did not continue the subscription service, and as instructed by the representative, did not pay for the first shipment.
“Farm Fresh to You” is now threatening to send a collection agency after me for the #23!
I strongly discourage anyone from doing business with this organization, or listening to their representative’s promises – representatives who are either poorly trained, misinformed, or worse!
Now if I can just get them off my back.
What these people are doing has nothing to do with supporting community agriculture, since they have turned me off to any such service as theirs.
I’ll stick to the farmer’s markets and produce section in my local grocery store.
