If there’s a theme to Harmony Ridge in 2017 it is ACCESS. We want to provide all of you with better access to our farm fresh products through an array of buying choices. Not only will the CSA and market be available to you, but we are offering a Buying Club and opening our barn market to you all every Saturday with complete access to our premium farm products.
Let’s start with our 2017 CSA PROGRAM
We will continue to offer our CSA in 2017, as we have for the past 7 years, providing a weekly bounty of naturally grown veggies, eggs and fruit weekly for 12 weeks, from late May to mid August. This program will be called ‘CSA Plus,’ and will be the sole CSA membership option we will offer this year. Each week members will receive a seasonal variety of HRF-grown produce and eggs as well as a locally sourced product such as cheese, jam, honey and/or fruit.
Share boxes will be picked up at the farm between 5:00 and 7:00 pm on Thursday evenings or at Whole Foods in Winston Salem after 11:00 am on Thursdays. We will continue to use 3/4 bushel waxed share boxes and will exchange boxes each week as we have done in the past. During the program if you are away on vacation and miss a week we will permit you to double up another week or provide you with a market credit. Membership in CSA Plus will be limited to 45 members to ensure maximum quality and service. Cost is $675 for the 12 week membership – please see the attached form, sign up via credit card at the market or signup online here:
2017 Buying Club Memberships
We will also continue to offer the Buying Club memberships we initiated last Fall. This program provides the flexibility to shop when you like, purchase as much or as little each week and choose from a range of produce and proteins. The 'punch card' you receive upon purchase is presented at checkout and allows an easy way to shop at the market. The card has no expiration and is good on all of our products other than bulk meat purchases, as they are already significantly discounted.
Buying Club memberships will be offered at two levels, BASIC: a $270 payment providing $300 credit (a 10% discount) and GOLD: a $500 payment providing $600 in credit (a 20% discount).
Buying Club cards may be used by you or anyone you choose to designate. You may purchase as many cards as you like, and membership in both the CSA and buying club is welcome. Buying Club cards can be used for purchases at the Cobblestone Farmers Market or at our on farm Saturdaymornings. We will have a continuous supply of beef, pork, duck, eggs, veggies, and fruit as the seasons allow for you to choose from.
We heard you, and are striving to provide more access to our premium farm products in 2017 through an array of buying options. Your support of our programming allows us to further our quest to build a sustainable farm model that enriches and nourishes our community. We hope you will continue to support our efforts in 2017.
