Buyer’s Group @ Bee Healthy

WINTER/SPRING PROGRAM–

Buyer’s Group for the 2021 season started February 4th and closes late  June–This is our EIGHTH year!  This year we are moving Buyer’s Group to Bee Healthy with a new cooler to accommodate daytime storage of the BOXES and room to store the extra veggies–  🙂

Send text to 431-1219 with your name to sign up.  Membership is limited by space and availability of produce.  (You can sign up for a weekly box if you are voracious veggie eaters!)

*Sign up is for the season–February through June. You can opt out of a Box by letting us know a week in advance so we have time to make other arrangements. We can hold your Box in our cooler over the weekend, let us know. (If a friend or family will be picking up your box, send us their name.)

*Pay Thursday when you pick up your Box.  Cost is usually $30.  Cash or check, and now credit or debit card!

*Buyer’s Group Members get 10% off additional produce and store items at Bee Healthy on the Thursday that you pick up your box.  (If you cancel the program, or miss 2 boxes as scheduled without letting us know in advance, the discount is dropped.)

* Sign up to get notices direct to your email…www.lloydcraftfarms.com…box to the right hand sign…enter email…then confirm to activate.  (Check your spam first time out to retrieve the confirmation email from wordpress–)

  • The Buyer’s Group is a separate program from the CSA/Special Box Program, or Fall Friday Sales! Each is structured a little bit differently–but all in combination provide fresh and/or local produce 10 months out of a year.  And that’s a good thing!!

***********************************************************************************

The goal of the Buyer’s Group is to bring in USDA Certified Organic produce* throughout the winter and spring when the Garden is not producing yet, and to take advantage of the buying power of a group.  (Buyer’s Group meets the minimum requirement and shipping needs of Spokane Produce.)  Members will be guaranteed a cross section of produce through the Box.  The Members commitment to the program makes it possible for everyone else–!  🙂

*We sell some Conventionally raised citrus, mangoes, avocados, and pineapples following the guidelines of pesticide levels as reported by the Environmental Working Group–Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists are posted under our Nutrition Page.  This year we added Asparagus, Cauliflower, and Broccoli to be purchased conventionally or organic, depending on quality and availability.
