And here are some answers:
Are there membership fees?
No membership Fees, this year.
Currently, there is no fee for new members. However, if the cost of maintaining this valuable website increases, an annual fee may be charged in the future to all members.
Will I have to buy vegetables I don't want?
Each Wednesday evening/Thursday Morning, an email will be sent to all members to inform them that the “ordering function” on this website has been enabled and that they can begin placing orders. Members must place their order for the week any time after that email goes out, but no later than Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Orders are placed here on this website under “The Market” tab. You get to order as little or as much of a product as you want. If you don’t want to order that week that is acceptable also.
I will receive each member’s order by Sunday and harvest on Monday or Tuesday depending on the crop and the weather.
How do I order?
Each Wednesday evening or Thursday Morning, a list of available products is sent to all of our registered customers by e-mail. Customers must place their order for the week no later than Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Orders can be placed here on our website. Ordering through this web site is our preferred method as it is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes us to process orders as well as provide you with detailed information about our products.
When do I pay?
Unless you have a credit balance on your account, payment is required at the time of pick up.
Payment can be made by either check, credit or debit card or cash.
To reduce the number of monetary transactions each week, we encourage you to keep a credit balance in your account by “depositing” the amount into your account that you expect to spend at the Market. Your account will be managed automatically and your current balance will show up in “Your Account” information and will be adjusted each time you place an order. This not only reduces the amount of checks you write or the number of ATM transactions you pay for, it also streamlines the drop off process.
When and Where do I pick up my order?
From 6:30-7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, customers can pick-up their produce in Clay Center on the West Side of the Courthouse Square.
I will send out emails prior to pick up time to let you know if there will be any changes.
Finally, depending on the number of orders, (if there are just a few) we will drop off at your home or place of work.
Why Support Locally Grown?
Enhance your local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.
Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.
We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
