Three River Farmers Alliance
‘Farm-to-Workplace’ Program 2018
What is the Three River Farmers Alliance?
Three River Farmers Alliance is a network of local farms on the Seacoast of New Hampshire working together to market, aggregate, and distribute exclusively locally-produced products.
What is a CSA?
CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a direct relationship between our farms and you as a customer. CSA members make a commitment to our farm by purchasing a "share" of the harvest in advance of the growing season. This commitment provides us with the capital we need early in the year to buy seeds and supplies, and get the growing season underway. In return, members receive a weekly "share" of the farm's harvest -- fresh, in-season, high quality, organic vegetables grown and harvested on our farms.
Member Benefits include...
A weekly supply of fresh, organic, in-season vegetables grown and sourced from our farms.
Weekly email updates from the farmers with links to recipes, storage tips, and news from the farm.
Invitations to farm events including our Annual Tomato Tasting, Spring Plant Sale, Happy Hours at the Farm, workshops, and other events.
Delivery of shares to you and your co-workers right to your workplace
Shareholders make a return on their investment in a normal year. CSA members usually receive 10-20% discount on the produce received throughout the CSA season.
Meet the farmers and know where your food comes from.
Freshness! Vegetables and fruit are picked one day before they are delivered to you.
Learn more about the local food growers, the CSA community, and seasonal eating.
Spend locally, keep money in the community.
Try new veggies and varieties! Eat healthy!
What is the ‘Farm-to-Workplace’ Program?
This multi-farm CSA minimizes the risks to producers and members by gathering produce from several local farms, which increases the variety, and assures that there will be plenty of produce every week throughout the season. This new kind of CSA model supports more than one local farm and provides a greater variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.
The best part of it all? It is delivered FRESH right to your workplace. Each week, 3RFA will deliver pre-portioned shares to you and all of your co-workers to take home. Along with the shares, 3RFA provides a weekly information packet to all members, that includes: a list of the weekly bounty, suggested recipes, cooking tips, storage information, and nutritional facts related to the produce in your share.
What are the requirements?
In order to make a delivery trip, we ask that you have 20 members signed up at your location. Please contact Erin Norton, firstname.lastname@example.org for marketing materials and flyers to recruit your members. If you are in a central location, you are welcome to have off-site members pick up at your location. Once we drop off the pre-portioned shares at your location, you are responsible for all shares. We will compensate with one free share to the member who coordinates logistics and pickups.
Our 2018 summer CSA season runs from July 11th, 2018 until October 10th, 201- 14 weeks of delivery.
