Farm Happenings for October 29, 2019

Posted on October 23rd, 2019 by Sarah Rider

With just four weeks left of the 2019 Main Season share, we are beginning to look toward our Thanksgiving and Winter Shares. The Thanksgiving Share is a one-time, $30 share available for pick up on Tuesday, Nov 26 (see below for more details!)

As many of you already know, we are very grateful when members are able to pay in full for their share for the following season, as it enables us to make the purchases necessary to keep the farm running! Members who are currently set to renew for the 2020 Main Season Share will receive a discount code for $10 off the Thanksgiving share if the Main Season share is paid in full by November 22nd

As an additional incentive, anyone who renews for the Main Season 2020 and pays the share in full by December 31 will receive a $25 Extra Credit. Credits can be used for delivery extras or swap overages at any time. 

To pay in full...

1) go to your profile page in Harvie and select 'My Profile' from the top bar.

2) Select 'Auto-Renew Settings' and you will see the payment options.
