This Week on the Farm
Many folks called last week with ideas of what we could do to increase numbers in our CSA and I have to say it was so wonderful to talk to you and get inspiration, Thank YOU! So what we came up with is two options:
A ONE BOX HOLIDAY SPECIAL
A combined box of our fruit bag and veggie box that you can give as a Holiday gift to help us advertise our program, or if you know someone that might be interested in a one week trial that would be interested in a preholiday box. We will deliver the Combination Box on December 20th to the delivery site of your/their choice that is convenient for you or your gift recipient. Edible Pedal in downtown Sac has offered to donate free delivery via bicycle into the midtown for new members. This week we have a flyer in the box so tell folks, put it around in your offices, or give us a call with who you would like to send a Special Holiday box to. Cost is $35
6 WEEK HOLIDAY SPECIAL
For a longer trial we thought a half quarter might be a good sampling of our CSA program. We will start Jan 17 delivering a CSA veggie box plus a free loaf of bread for 6 weeks for the cost of $100. For the midtown only Edible Pedal will donate free delivery for 6 weeks. (That is a savings of $25 for the veggies and bread with the free midtown delivery that is a saving of $55 for the 6 weeks).
Details-Please fill out the form and mail or e-mail it back to us and we will get your Holiday Special order set up. When the 1 box holiday special gift is delivered it will have a tag with the gift recipients name and who it is from on it so folks know which box is theirs to pickup. For the 6 weeks Holiday offer once we have the name we will contact the family and get them started in January. If you need more flyers for your offices please let us know and we cold mail you a package. If you need more than one form please print more off.
Show and Tell-If your office or organization has noon time lunch talks that might be interested in hearing about our CSA we would love to set up a date to come in and do a show and tell-give a short presentation and bring a box in to show and give away.
If you have any questions please give us a call.
With the special orders going out today, and also today the van decided to ask for last minute maintenance work, the regular newsletter will be short.
Have a great week ~Annie
