RAF Buying Clubs : Time to Order!
Hello Buying Club members!
It is time to start placing your orders for this week’s drop-offs in Forest and Rivermont Area.
Two quick notes:
1. We are still low on pork but should have EVERYTHING back in stock by the next Buying Club drop-offs! (Including our first round of Restoration Acres Farm Lamb!)
2. Our friends at Great Day Gardens are on vacation so unfortunately we do not have any bread or vegetables to offer this week.
That being said, we still have a great selection of:
-Freshly Pastured Eggs
-Freshly Pastured Chicken
-Locally Made Pastas
-Hand Crafted Dry Rubs and Spices
Thank you and we hope to see you this week!
Magney Legacy Ridge Farm: Winter CSA #1
Dear loyal CSA customers,
Have you missed us this past month? We’ve certainly missed seeing you and bringing fresh delicious vegetables to your doorstep. Since making the last delivery of 2018, we’ve been busy reimagining the CSA system. One of the things we’ve really wanted to introduce is giving users the choice of which seasonal vegetables they receive each week. Essentially, what we’ve created is an online Farmer’s Market booth where you can assemble the CSA you want to receive each week. Love Kale? Triple up on it! Tired of squash? No problem. Hosting a dinner party? Receive as much lettuce as you need! The new system gives you, the customer, more control of which vegetables you receive.
We need your help though! We want you to try our new system out during the winter months before we open it up to the public. We understand that using a new site can be daunting at first, and we’re similarly daunted by the prospect of packing over 50 unique CSAs each week. Yet above all we are excited. This is the cutting edge of the local food movement, and we are thrilled to be bringing it to you.
Here’s how to get started:
First create an account here. You’ll be asked for your name, phone number, email address, mailing (delivery address), and receiving location. This is so that we can match your order to the username you create on this page. You will receive an email confirming the creation of your account.
Once you have created your account, you can follow the above link to “The Market” page, or simply navigate to “The Market” tab on the navigation bar at the top of the page. This displays all the products, and their amounts, that are available for this delivery cycle. Each delivery cycle begins on Sunday, and each week’s order will need to be placed before 5PM on Tuesday. Our team will harvest and assemble your order Wednesday and Thursday, ensuring you get fresh vegetables at peak quality.
To begin, simply add the amount of each item you wish to receive this week and click cart icon next to the box in order to “Add to Cart.” If you wish to have the vegetables delivered to your door, add 1 of the $5.00 “Delivery Fee” items to your cart. Please note to qualify for delivery service, your order and delivery fee must total $25 or more. When you are finished, click the “Proceed to checkout” option to the left of the screen. You will be taken to a page where you can review your order, and then “Place This Order” to finalize the process.
At this point in time we are only accepting payment via cash or check upon delivery, though in the near future, we intend to implement payment processing from the online site. We recognize that payment upon delivery is a little clunky, but please bear with us while we work out the new system. The delivery schedule will the same as it was during CSA season, Thursdays from ~3PM-8PM depending on where you’re located along our 3 delivery routes.
We have also added a local pickup option from our Farm. This is a new choice we are trying out for those of you who find it convenient to pick up from us directly. If you opt to pick up from the farm, there is no minimum order nor delivery fee. The pick-up window is on Fridays from 4PM-6PM, and the address for doing so is:
Magney Legacy Ridge Farm
837 Pleasant Valley Road
We cordially invite and encourage you to utilize our new system. Likewise, we hope that you will contact us with any of your questions, concerns, or feedback. Beginning something new is always a little intimidating, but we’re confident the service we’re offering will improve the flexibility and value of the Magney Legacy Ridge Farm CSA substantially. As always, we intend to deliver you the region’s healthiest vegetables, grown using only organic practices and harvested with care, right here in Western Kentucky.
