Friend of the Farm

 

We have been humbled by and greatly appreciate the support of our loyal customers, and we are excited to introduce The Friend of the Farm program.

 

Becoming a Friend of the Farm is a pretty simple concept. You purchase your summer and fall flowers now to aid our early season cash flow. We keep track of everything, and you have more cash to spend with other local vendors while you’re at the market.

Why does cash flow matter?

For a small farm like ours that operates seasonally, the business does not typically have any income until the first harvest in May (or June, or even July depending in spring weather patterns, skill, and luck). Between the first of the year and the initial harvest a lot of expenses pop up for farms. There are the basics like paying your lease, buying seeds, and watering the field, and there is a myriad of other things that cost money when you’re a farmer (regularly used equipment needs to be repaired or replaced, things break, etc.). In order to help solve potential cash flow issues before they crop up, we are offering a Friend of the Farm option for local customers.

Instead of receiving a weekly CSA share, you have the flexibility to spend Farm Cash at our booth at any of our farmer’s markets and u-pick events, and at some special events. You can even purchase Farm Cash in advance of a big event (wedding or other special event) or to pay for future workshops (TBA). If you have a friend or family member that loves local seasonal flowers and supporting small farms, Farm Cash  also makes a wonderful gift.
