Where are You Getting Your Veggies This Year?

Enough with the cold weather...is it Summer yet?
Conferences. They are "good and plenty" this time of year.  The time right before farmers in our area really get started. I attended the NJ Northeastern Organic Farming Association's convention, the Mid Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Growers Convention, I will stop by the NJ Vegetable Growers Convention and I'm toying with the idea of taking a trip to Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture convention for a day.

Why go to these?

Well networking and vendors...yes! Continued education...yes!

But what I have found is the most beneficial is usually one or two random sentences a speaker says that really stick with you....that really flip the light switch. 

Steven Wiley was the keynote speaker at the Mid Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable meeting, who is an incredibly gifted speaker, said in our lives most of the time it's all about "Me, Me, Me!" and went on to say in business it's not about "Me, Me, Me!"

"It's not about what you want," He said, "It's about what your customer wants."

He went on to say (I'm paraphrasing here) that no matter if you're selling multi million dollar MRI machines to a hospital or you're selling potatoes on the side of the road we're all in the "people business."

I couldn't agree more.

And that's why I made the Buying Club the way in which I did...
$25 Box Example
Custom Ordered Box Example
I want you to be able to choose how often and if you want to pick items or if you're OK with me choosing items for you.
 
And maybe one week you just want a $20 box I put together and next week you want to pick out a few items yourself. 

So...let freedom ring!  The Buying Club is for the person who wants to be involved in supporting a local farm, wants to eat great food and wants to do it on their terms.  Go you!

HIGHLIGHTS:
  1. Vegetables Grown using Organic Practices and Integrated Pest Management
  2. Place orders weekly or in 1 month subscriptions (a four week commitment) 
  3. Over 150 different varieties of produce grown over the season 
  4. Weekly On Farm Pick Up, Farmers Market Pick Up and Delivery (Home and Gym)
So with the Buying Club...
  • You get 1 (and only 1) email each week linking you to our online store.
  • You choose a "box" of items I put together from what we have growing or you build your own box with whatever you want
  • We deliver to your Crossfit gym or house, you pick up at a farmers' market or you pick up on farm
  • Then you "Eat Yourself Sexy" with all of the great fruit and veggies you purchased!
