*SOLD OUT FOR 2022*
Our Pay-As-You-Go Veggie Subscription is an excellent and convenient way to enjoy delicious, fresh, and nutrient-dense produce from our farm! Signing up gets you a customizable order of our fresh certified organic veggies delivered right to your door every week, or every other week, depending on your preferences. There are also contactless pickup options available. We use a specialized subscription management platform called Harvie to manage the program. Harvie is an excellent user-friendly platform that gives you the ability to customize your orders each week, reschedule your deliveries (or put them on hold temporarily) if you’ll be out of town, and select the delivery or pick-up option that works best for you! (It has loads of other features too!)
HOW IT WORKS
A subscription provides you with weekly veggie deliveries (or bi-weekly deliveries if you’d prefer) from June through October. When you sign up for a subscription and set up an account, you will be charged only for your first delivery. Then, Harvie will provide you with a list of all the veggies that we will offer throughout the season. You’ll be asked to rate each of them on a scale from 1 (I never want it in my share!) to 5 (I love it!). Based on your preferences and our weekly harvests, Harvie will automatically curate a selection of veggies to put in your order each week. Then, you’ll have 48 hours to further customize what veggies you’d like, as well as to purchase extras (from our farm as well as a few other local producers!).
