Omnivore Farm Credit Share

Have you signed up for a CSA share and been frustrated by the volume or types of product you are obligated to consume?  Have you ever wished you could get a variety of both produce AND proteins in your CSA share?  Have you ever wished you could modify your share content and volume with a week’s notice due to consumption changes in your life (family visiting, canning, tired of one of more products, etc)?

Morganic Farm feels for you and is pleased to offer you our Omnivore Farm Credit Share.  For a minimum of $300 down you can begin to start experiencing any proteins and produce that the farm has available any time of the year.  We give you access to our current order form and you select the items and volumes you’d like, giving us a week’s notice.  We can then pick or prepare your order and have it ready for you at the next Sara Hardy Farmers Market pick up (every Saturday morning through the end of October).  After that you can pick up your share on Three Mile Road or at our farm (until the following May when we return to the Sara Hardy).  With notice you can even skip weeks if you’re on vacation or can’t make it, with no penalties!

This share is available any time of the year and is good until your credit runs out.  Think of it like you invest your dollars in the farm to allow us to make seasonal and capital purchases and in return you get maximum variety and volume at an approximate 10% savings over our direct sale price.

Your share experience might look like this:

  • You access our online order form (see below)
  • You select the items and quantities desired
  • We fulfill the quantities to the best of our abilities (i.e. sometimes high demand items will be rationed for the week)
  • You meet us at the Sara Hardy Farmers Market and take your share home
  • This share might include combinations that look like:
    • Two pounds of pork (you select the cuts), a dozen eggs (select from chicken, duck, quail), a whole chicken, and five to ten pounds of produce that may include:
      • Chives
      • Shiitake mushrooms
      • Peas
      • Purple potatoes
      • Strawberries
      • Kale
      • Rhubarb
      • Garlic
      • Turnips
      • Beets
      • Onions
      • Broccoli
      • Tomatoes
      • Cucumbers
      • Etc

Bonuses we see with this share offering:

  • if you find you “get too much _________ one week” you can pull back on it the following week.
  • Week by week you can assess your food needs and adjust your order accordingly.  Not going through eggs as fast as you were?  Order few to none this week.
  • Decided you don’t like X as much as you thought you might?  Cross it off your list for the rest of the season.
  • You’ve decided that you only want rabbit and green vegetables each week?  Not a problem at all.
  • Disappointed because you expected a full share for the week and your share is light (and you feel ripped off)?  With our share program you will not be “charged” for that light volume like you would with a traditional “every week amounts to the same cost” share program.  Your share will only reflect the costs of the items in your share for that week.  You are not paying for product you don’t want.
