What our Cropshare Members are saying...
"My family and I go through the box like it's Christmas. Your recipes help, as some of these vegetables are foreign to me! This has been one of the best decisions I have made. I feel so fortunate to be eating wonderful foods from our valley." -Cheri
"I love knowing before the week begins what I'll get in my box. And I liked being able to select items that I like and would use. The quality was excellent!" -Megan
"We have been participating in farm CSAs for nearly 20 years from several farms in multiple states and you all seriously rocked this year! We are looking forward to next year!" -Lynn
A Farmers Testimonial: Why the Cropshare Program?
If you are curious why folks would sign up for this
program given the ease of buying produce from the
store, the reason is sometimes deeper (than fresh,
high quality produce)...because they want to
support their local organic small scale farmer.
So why do we offer a Cropshare program and
how does it help our business?
Selling at the Farmers Market can be unpredictable and hard to plan around. We will often bring twice as much as we can sell in order to create an attractive display that looks bountiful throughout the day. All this excess produce at the end of the market is donated, fed to the chickens, or composted which inevitably results in an economic loss for us considering all the work it took to plant, cultivate, harvest, wash, package and display that produce. The alternative to Farmers Markets is to sell to stores and restaurants that typically pay 30-40% lower prices than what we sell for at Market. At our scale, this low rate may not even allow us to break even on our costs. Thus the Cropshare is a happy medium. We sell our produce to Cropshare Members at a discounted rate. People get a good deal, and we have a guaranteed market for our produce. Its a win-win!
