All of us at Covey Rise Farms are sincerely grateful for your past support and the support given during the unexpected turn of events in the past few months.  It truly was a life line for the farm.  We are now offering a membership in the farm's new and improved CSA program.  The following letter outlines how the program works and offers links to sign up.  If you should have any questions, please reach out to us.

"We’re excited to announce that for the 2020 season, we’re switching to a new CSA Management platform, Harvie. This will allow us to offer you customizable shares as well as the ability to set vacation holds and much more.    Check it out!   

CUSTOMIZABLE shares through Harvie: How it works: Once you sign up for a share, you’ll be asked to rate all the produce we grow on a scale of “not for me” to “I love it.” Your share will be built based on those preferences and what we have available in season at the time. Don’t like beets? Rate them a “not for me” and you won’t ever see them! Love carrots? Give them an “I love it” and we’ll try to get that to you every time they are available!  

Swap your veggies! Prior to your delivery, you’ll have the option to swap out items if you want! Already have enough radishes this week? Just swap them out for something else we have available that week.   And don’t worry, if you love the surprise of not knowing what is in your share, you can simply skip setting preferences and customizing and we’ll create a farmer’s choice share for you to pick up!  

Going on vacation?  No problem. Harvie has a built in tool that will allow you to place your share on “hold” or reschedule it for a future date within your season.   

Flexible Payment Plans We know paying up front for a share can be tough on the budget. With our shares, you’ll have two different payment options: Pay in Full  Payment Plan You’ll pay 25% down at sign up You’ll pay an additional 25% + 1st share cost the first week of pickups  Then, the additional 50% balance will be split evenly throughout the remainder of the season. This will be charged to your card on file.  Ready to join?  

Want to commit for a whole season? Sign up for our CSA program.  With the CSA option, you’ll sign up for a whole season so you don’t have to worry about signing up every week. You’ll get all the benefits and features listed above with automatic payment plans, vacation holds, reschedules and customization!    Sign up here!  https://www.harvie.farm/signup/covey-rise-farms  

Want to purchase just when you need it? Order from the Farm Stand When you order a pop up share through our farm stand you’ll get access to one time shares when we have product available. You’ll be able to customize your share by swapping items AND adding additional items to your cart. This is a pay as you go option with no commitment.    Read more about how to join the farm stand here!    Subscribe to the farm stand here.  https://www.harvie.farm/signup/covey-rise-farms   When it’s open, you’ll get a notification to purchase!   

What to expect next! Once you have signed up, you’ll receive a series of “member training” emails that will walk you through a lot of the different Q&As members have and how to use your account. They will be coming from support@harvie.farm so stay tuned for those as they have a ton of valuable information.  Thank you so much for your support of our farm and everything that farm name is doing. We are super excited about the new options Harvie will bring to our CSA and we think you will be too!  

Hope you all are safe and well and will join Covey Rise Farms in this new platform.

It's over but just for a short time.  The Spring/Summer CSA season will be starting before we know it.  Until then, all of us at Covey Rise Farms want to thank our new and "old" CSA members for allowing us to farm for them this season.  We truly appreciate your support of the farm.  Until then, take care, stay warm and be safe.  Have a wonderful holiday season!

All of us at Covey Rise Farms want to thank our CSA members for allowing us to farm for them this season.  It's amazing how quickly the 12 weeks went by.  We hope you all enjoyed your produce as much as we enjoyed growing it.  Be on the lookout for an email concerning the CSA day at the farm to be scheduled in late September early October along with signups for the fall.  Until then, take care and have a fun filled summer.

We want to thank all those that allowed us to farm for them this season.   It seems like yesterday Grady and I were in the barn counting and sorting vegetables for week 1 and fast forward 12 weeks and we are done.  It is such a gratifying part of what goes on a Covey Rise.  Stay tuned for signups for the spring.
