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.

  1. Glad the Silver worked for your family–and it was good getting the berries that your boys love so much!

    I loved being able to get fresh organic fruit and veggies. I was not part of the group, but found the extra selection good. Thanks.

    I really enjoyed the buyer’s group. It was nice having good produce throughout the winter. I thought the prices were reasonable and the variety was good. Thanks for all the time you guys put into it!
