Become a "Friend of the Farm"
Do you have your Belle Meadow “Friend of the Farm” card yet? Now is the time of year us farmers are investing heavily in our operations. The end result our customers are always fond of : a big, ripe, and usually sweet heirloom tomato, okra the size of the your little finger, and a sunflower larger then your head, are all a months long investment. here at Belle Meadow Farm, we started out and will continue to be a “markets focused” farm, meaning we focus on bringing our absolute BEST to the Farmers Markets every week, versus having the majority of our “first cut” produce being allocated to a traditional CSA subscription program.
For those unfamiliar with the acronym, “CSA” stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”. To some, this suggests a one-size fits all approach to a farm box subscription plan. In reality, a “CSA” can come in many shapes and forms, including a re-loadable gift card.
BY investing in a “Friend of the Farm” CSA card you help us by:
*Providing precious (and necessary) upfront capital for us to buy seeds, organic fertilizers, make amendments, and other various initial season costs.
*Paying for essential costs such as insurance and labor during part of of the year that is traditionally “leaner” than the summer months.
*Endorsing our farm and mission. your investment, no matter the size, is you buying into what Laurie Beth and I have worked tirelessly over to ensure that we bring our customers the best, healthiest, freshest, and most sustainably grown produce available.
The Benefits of investing in the “Friend of the Farm” card:
*The convenience of always having “cash on hand” for Belle Meadow Farm stands. save your actual dollars for other vendors who only take cash
*The luxury of hassle free shopping, forgot it at home? no worries! we have all the info we need on hand to deduct your purchase from your balance!
*The card NEVER expires, your cash will be good as long as our produce is!
*The benefit of never feeling like you are wasting your investment. It is available for you to use on your terms on as much or as little of each produce as you desire. You simply need to show up to markets to use it.
Strict CSA subscriptions and unnecessary waste tend to go hand in hand. Our “Friend of the Farm” card steps around that problem by putting the decision making in to your hands. Only feel like shopping with us when we have tomatoes? Or when greens are in? Going out of town for a month in the summer and don’t want to waste those four weeks of investment? Then the “Friend of the Farm” card might be for you!
They make an excellent gift for that special loved one you are encouraging to get acquainted with the local food scene!
*”egift” cards can be issued completely online, so no worries if that party popped up on you… Purchase, Print, and wrap!
Once purchased the information regarding your investment in our farm will be stored on our SQUARE account, we will have immediate access to it as soon as the purchase is made. When shopping at market, simply inform us of your name or email and we can look you up.
