Ms V's Organics - Fresh & Well Priced Organic Produce and much more.....
CSA/BUYING CLUB  

After many requests its finally here!!!! We listened to your comments and suggestions and put them together in a format we think you are going to love! We couldn’t decide if we should call it a Buying Club or a CSA so we are calling it both!!   Please read all the following information and if you have questions or suggestions, please let us know!


What is a Buyer’s Club?
A buyers club is a group of people that come together to participate in bulk purchasing to increase their buying power. Instead of shopping individually, we combine our buying power to get a better selection, lower prices and higher quality fresh products. This saves time and money in many ways, making it affordable to choose organic over pesticide and chemical-laden products. It also brings people and communities together to network and share ideas, recipes and form friendships.

What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In basic principle, it means the community supports the farmer. For direct access to the farmer and direct access to fresh local food, the community can sign up as members. Members can buy a share of the farm and receive a share of the harvest each week. Much like buying a share of stock, the community shares the risks with the farmer, in addition to sharing the benefits of bountiful harvests. Each week members receive what is available to harvest based on their share size.
 
Please read everything carefully before you sign up to determine if this program is right for you.

Members are provided with a weekly bag of fresh vegetables based on the availability of harvest and the season. We have many certified organic farms around the country that we get produce from, but we make every effort to use local farms and while some may not be certified organic, they use organic growing practices because they care about their families’ health and the health of the environment too. You can be certain we will never bring produce from a farm we do not trust.
Varieties are given based on what is available during that week, so will be limited to seasonal growing. By joining, you are acknowledging and accepting these terms. If this is not what you expect, then this may not be the right membership for you. Additionally, we pick the items that go in the box. If you or other family members are "picky" this is not for you,respectively  if you have allergy concerns this is also not a good club for you!

You have the option to subscribe for, either a Full Share Weekly, Half Share Weekly, or Full Share Bi-weekly. All shares are charged in advance for a 6-week period and must be paid in full 1 week prior to the new 6 week start, for the share that you choose. 

 We understand you—the consumer—are looking for ways to eat healthier and save money in these uncertain economic times and this system of payment helps us keep costs down.

This makes healthy eating on a budget more convenient by delivering quality, fresh, organic produce directly from local organic farmers to your neighborhood. This means longer shelf life, less handling, no waiting in long lines and below-market prices. Come help us build a distribution network of natural organic/locally grown foods that is good for our bodies and our local economy. The success of the club depends largely on our ability to buy in bulk. Please let other family members, church groups, co-workers, doctor's offices, clubs, etc. that might be interested in our club know about us so that they can reap the benefits too!

Get Started

Firstly, you need to decide what size share is right for you. A half share is good for 1 person, or 2 if you don’t eat in every night or a small family.  The full share is a great choice for families, vegetarians, juicers, or people that like to entertain. 

Cost
A once a year membership fee of $50 to get started, this includes a reusable shopping bag that you will return each week to reduce waste. Two bags, for those that go with the full share option. This fee helps us pay for office expenses including workers, supplies, and misc. costs, helping us keep your costs as low as possible. Membership fees occur only once a year, you may  suspend  your share as often as needed during a 12 month period without paying the fee again, however shares must be paid in 6 week increments. If you need to suspend your share during a pre-paid month please give us 1 weeks notice, if you cannot, please have a friend pick up or allow us to donate it to a good cause.

Half share is $40(Delivery charges may apply) Includes vegetables and seasonal fruit averaging
 15-20 lbs.
Full share is $60 (Delivery charges may apply) includes vegetables and seasonal fruit averaging 
25-30 lbs.

Membership entitles you to a %5-10 discount off of many additional produce items that we offer for market or regular delivery (excluding meat, eggs, or dairy).Only active members are entitled to additional discounts. (An active member is any member who has pre-paid full price for a 4 week period including applicable membership fees) Please give us your membership number when ordering additional items or shopping at our markets.

Some of our market partners offer discounts to our members. Please ask for more information.

Please email any questions that you may have and we will be happy to assist.

Thank you and remember to live, love, laugh and eat well.
