Walk-in’s Welcome/Buyer’s Group


Thursday at Bee Healthy was a great day…almost perfect!  We covered our check and got the extra needed to apply to the truck payment due for 2019.  Thanks to those Walk-in’s that stopped by to shop, and the Members that bought Extra’s.  The income from the Special Boxes helps to make Thursday Market at The Bee happen, but do not cover the cost of the produce from our distributors.  It is truly a community effort!

Please help us share the wordMarket Day at Bee Healthy every Thursday from now until the end of May. 

  • No membership required, though being a part of the Buyer’s Group guaranties a personal box of fruits and veggies for the week (or two weeks).
  • 9 openings still available in Group B with their next Box January 31st– $30.  Text 431-1219 to reserve a spot.
  • No money down, pay when you pick up your Box (and pick up your Extra’s for the week, too).
  • Review the Memo of Understanding, and check out the Buyer’s Group tab at .  While there, sign up ‘to follow’ so you’ll get the posts directly into your email!

Thanks AGAIN!  We appreciate your support and commitment to eating whole foods and taking your health seriously!  LOL 

Healthy foods for healthy bodies, Healthy bodies for healthy communities!

We are well on our way to getting this program going!  Despite over-ordering last week, we did okay…YAY!!  We brought the 25 Special Boxes for Group B, and we’re able to sell 12 MORE as an INTRO for those wanting to try them but not sure they wanted to COMMIT…just yet– The Walk-in’s for the day took care of the rest!  THANK YOU COMMUNITY!!

SIGHHHHH!  The Farmer and I finally got away for an evening on the town…Billings!  For us it was shopping at Costco (our $322 dinner–LOL), Walmart,  and a stay at the Com’On Inn, Jacuzzi suite…with a Senior discount– Good to get away for Date Night!   But now…back to the living!  We spent this afternoon getting 35 Boxes ready, and lining out all the Extra’s for sale tomorrow.  DONE!   So here is the report:

25 Boxes for Group B with everything promised and no great surprises (the Son met the truck in our absence and brought the produce back to the cooler and put it in the RIGHT places–We are blessed by our children!).  Because I ordered from Spokane Produce anticipating 40 BOXES, I have WAY MORE PRODUCE than anticipated–so I am discounting items to move them from our coolers to your refrigerators:

5 oz – Organic Girl Baby Spinach (15)…..$3.75 each  (normal retail $4.25)

See you TOMORROW, 10:00 opening at Bee Healthy, closing 5:30, WITH LOTS OF GOOD HEALTHY PRODUCE TO STOCK YOUR KITCHENS FOR THE WEEK–The Farmer’s Wife


Buyer’s Group—Group B. Jan 17- Bee Healthy STILL ROOM!

The produce for the Special Boxes has been ordered!  Truck comes in today— Boxes will be assembled Wednesday afternoon.   I still have 16 openings for Group B.  If I don’t fill them I will have a lot of produce to sell Thursday!

So, “Why should I get a box if I can come in and shop?”, you ask.  Well…

Economy!  Buying a box of veggies through the Buyer’s Group cost 15%- 20% less than buying as a Walk-in.

Guarantee! You are guaranteed a good cross section of fruits and veggies no matter whether early in the morning or afternoon. (Great for BUSY people who have more to do than shop for their food.)

Value! Where else in town can you get fresh veggies (and fruits) that are organic and priced competitively?

Beyond economy, guarantee, and value there is Committment— Without the faithful core of committed members we can’t run a stable program and be around for the next year!

COME! Be a part of the Food Revolution!  Eat healthy for healthy bodies, Healthy bodies build healthy communities!  The Farmer’s Wife
