Terms of Service

All Customers:
  • Each order you place is a legally enforceable contract. If you fail to pickup your order, you are still obligated to pay for the items you order.
  • Due to the perishable nature of produce, prices and availability from our producers and distributors may vary beyond our control. Also, while we do our best to ensure your order, size and weight may vary. Our Owner-Workers work diligently to get your order as close as possible.
  • Quality ~ Our Owner-Workers and producers do their best to bring you the freshest, tastiest organic produce and value for your money. For reasons sometimes beyond our control, there are times when variations in the veggie box content occur. On those times that any value has been omitted, rest assured the value difference will be made up in the weeks following. As for quality, while we try to adhere to strict standards on your behalf, we recognize and value the variations that occur in nature and do not expect, nor want, plasticized-perfection. At the same time, we will do our best to not include inferior product in the boxes. 
  • We will inspect and pack all orders prior to delivery. In the event that product gets damaged during packing, we will provide a store credit to the customer, provided that the damaged goods are returned to the drop point.
  • Store credits are issued for all credits due to customers.
  • Lake Co-op reserves the right to change the Terms of Service.
