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

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.

right for you.
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

growing practices because they care about their families’ health and the health

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!
