For some the Pick Up at The Farm is difficult with WORK.  Last year we had a Farmer’s Market Pick Up option, but this year we need to readjust our focus and are spending Saturday’s with the garden and increasing our sales.

So here is an idea:  Schedule a drop at your work place!  If you have 3 co-workers who each buy a share, and the business is located along our Route to Thermopolis…several blocks north or south of Big Horn Ave…then you QUALIFY!

Remember–this is food we are talking about and everyone eats…Shares start at $120 for the 8 Week Leap-Frog, $240 for the 16 week Mini-Share, with options to add Lettuce/Spinach. You can UPGRADE anytime before August 15th.

If you’d like to pursue this IDEA for a Group Drop, let me know and we can extend the sign-up time until June 6th!  We are closing the membership May 31st, 2015.

**We currently have 77 Active/paid members, and 15 memberships pending–  Revenue from membership is down so we’ll be adjusting the budget and working on increasing outside sales to our Buyer to cover the shortage**

FRESH is best, support your local growers…be a part of the food revolution for your good health!  (Rah-rah TEAM!)

Buyer’s Group Wrap-Up

I want to thank everyone who participated in the first winter of our Buyer’s Group.  My family enjoyed the availability of the organics, and twice a month was just about the right amount of time between deliveries–both in terms of administer time and produce consumed…although 10 heads of lettuce presented a challenge!  (We donated twice to Apple Apartments our overflow!)

What are your thoughts?  Feel free to comment here–

Did you feel you got your money’s worth?–including the Extra’s that were available for purchase–

Did you find most of the items you needed?–if you were routinely there after 3:00 p.m. please do not answer–

What would you like to have seen more of?

Was the quality as good or better than what is available at the store? (okay to compare Organic to Conventional since the Organics stocked in the store are limited)

If Bee Healthy stocked Organic produce all the time how often would you shop there? 

Thanks for your time–your feedback is appreciated!  We hope to do this again next year but use more of the Lloyd Craft Farms items into the winter:  potatoes–including fingerlings, carrots and beets, onions, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kales and Swiss chard, Salanova and other lettuces, bok choi, kohlrabi, radishes, and winter squash…  🙂  This would require a good season this summer and successful plans for the hoophouse in the fall and spring.

BTW–We have applied for a grant for another High Tunnel–our plans are to use this to expand our winter and early spring production of Brassicas:  Broccoli, Cauliflower, and kales.
