The membership of our Pick of the Week club is full for the year. Please join us in 2018.
Minnesota Fresh Farm offers a unique and convenient way for you to receive a discount on a variety of farm fresh produce on a weekly basis.
Many people are familiar with the CSA - Community Supported Agriculture - model where members pay in advance for a share of a farm's crop. The farmer uses the money collected in the Spring to buy seeds and other inputs, then delivers a box to every member on a weekly basis. What's in the box depends on what the farmer is harvesting that week. It's a good model that is helpful to farmers and is convenient for consumers.
Minnesota Fresh Farm invites you to look at our "Pick of the Week" club. It's similar to a CSA, but without some of the restrictions.
You only pay for your produce when you pick it up. The cost of the weekly box is $20.00 for $25.00 for a full box of produce. You do not have to take a box every week. So, if you are on vacation, or just filled up with produce from your own garden, there is no financial commitment for the week.
Depending upon availability, in some weeks, a half box ($10.00 for $12.50 of produce) or three-quarters box ($15.00 for $19.00 of produce) is offered.
We collect a $5.00 deposit at the beginning of the year for a plastic tote which you use for carrying your produce.
You receive an email every Sunday saying what's in the box. You reply by Monday evening if you would like to reserve a box for the week.
Boxes can be ordered pre-packed which guarantees that everything that is in the box that week will be available, even if you come late in the day. Or, you may completely choose the contents of your box when you come to the farm.
We will ask for your credit card information when you sign up. Every week, you can pay by cash, check or credit card. If you order a box to be specifically packed for a week and you do not pick it up, we do charge the $20.00 against the credit card on file.
Eggs, meat products, honey, and maple syrup are not included in the Pick of the Week discount pricing.
It's that easy! We offer a lot of flexibility that is not inherent in a CSA. There is no upfront payment for the year, you can take a box in a week or not, and if you'd like complete flexibility in what's in the box, it's no problem at all.
Membership in our "Pick of the Week" club is limited to 300 customers in 2017.
