buyer's club memberships

Farming - it's tough work, expensive, and there's a LOT of risk! Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is one way to reduce some of that risk for small, local farmers. You purchasing a share gives the farmer some capital at the start of the season to buy seeds and supplies. You get first dibs on the best, healthiest, and most local produce possible.  We break the traditional concept of the CSA!  In most traditional CSA models, you don't get much say in what you get in your weekly share. You get your box or bag of produce and hope to goodness you can find a good recipe for that one thing that you have no idea what is even is, let alone how to cook it so your family will eat it. With The Looney Farm Buyer's Club, you are in 100% control of what you get! Once you spend your prepaid buy-in, your membership doesn't end!  You can continue to shop in the online store until the end of the season with all your other benefits.

  • There are a total 100 member slots available for the 2022 season

  • Enrollment will be open and continue until the end of March, or we fill up slots, whichever comes first.

Some statistics about the true COST of being a member
(if you're into that sort of thing)

On average, BEFORE the 10% discount, members will spend about $300 for the season. That means after the discount, they spend about $273 - which means they are saving $27 over the course of the season.

$27 is discounts doesn't really sound like that much right?!  CONSIDER THIS....Of your $235 investment

  • You get $200 of on that investment BACK to spend on your produce.

  • Meaning you really only 'out' $35 (membership fee) for the whole season!

  • BUT - if you calculate back in the average savings from your discount ($220+ of veggies)

    • YOUR TRUE COST is less than $15  to invest in a local farm, and you get TOP QUALITY produce at a discounted rate!​
