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're breaking 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!
You pick your share every time you shop. Maybe you need double the lettuce mix for a dinner party this week- No problem! Can't stand beets? Don't buy any- grab some yummy carrots instead if you'd like!
As a Buyer's Club member, you receive a pre-loaded spending card with the total amount of the share available. This card can be used anywhere we sell direct: at the farmer's market, delivered to your home (for a small additional fee) or in person at the farm! Click here to see our pick up locations. The card works for everything, from the best lettuce mix you ever tasted, to our kick-butt swag (t-shirt, hats, shopping bags, and more?.)
Because we know that different families have different needs, we have 3 different membership levels to choose from.
Whether you just cook for yourself, or for a family of five, we have a level to cover your needs. The information in the sections below can help you to choose. Don't hesitate to reach out to us directly if you have more questions!
Here's the best part!
If you spend your entire card value in the middle of the season, your membership doesn't end! You can continue to shop in the Dibs! store until the end of the season and pay for your order at the time of pickup or delivery.

how do i choose?
How often do you shop at the farmer's market: Are you a weekly die-hard? Maybe, you realistically only make it every 2-3 weeks? The average item we sell costs $3 and the buyer's club members spends about $14 worth of produce per week. Spring and summer, we will have lots of varieties of vegetables to shop from (not just lettuce.) Keep that in mind, and if you think you might be buying more when there is more variety, you may want to consider choosing a higher membership level. The table below shows you how much you would be able to spend over the course of the season.
Example : I buy a committedest membership, which means I have $500 to spend over the 37 weeks of the season. If I shopped weekly, and spent $14 dollars every week, I would have $0 left to spend at the end of the season. If I spent more than $14 per week, my spending card balance would deplete sooner, and If I spent less than $14 per week, I would have an unspent balance at the end of the season. (The example is approximate since you may not shop consistently every week.)
The goal would be to spend all your funds by the end of the year, so for the example, the committedest membership is the right fit for this example person.
