Good morning everyone! Thank you for joining the Full Well Farm newsletter. We are excited to announce that we are officially opening CSA registration for the 2022 season with a brand new sliding scale pricing system. While we encourage members to pay in full if possible, only a $50 deposit is due to reserve your spot, so please register asap if you are interested in joining us next season!
Community drives everything we do at Full Well Farm. Our business model is rooted in social justice and the belief that everybody has the right to high quality food, no matter their income. In addition to working with local partners who purchase CSA shares for members with specific health and income qualifications, we also wanted to expand access to our produce in 2022 by offering sliding scale pricing and flexible payment plans for our vegetable CSA shares.
In addition to using SNAP/HIP benefits to pay for your CSA share, members will now also be asked to choose their own price on the sliding scale based on income and wealth access. The sliding scale payment model is an alternative to a charity model. It is an opportunity to look inward and take stock of our levels of financial privileges and resources. It's intent is to give the opportunity to facilitate a small piece of local economic justice. While we do ask you to reflect on where you fall on the scale, please don’t stress about it. Pay what feels right.
Please explore our website's new FAQ page and Payment & Pricing Options page to learn more about the sliding scale. We are also always available for questions if you respond to this email or give us a call.
This weekend, Saturday 11/6, is also the first North Adams Winter Farmers' Market! We will
be inside at 85 Main Street with lots of late season produce, including carrots, kale, radicchio, daikon radishes, turnips, and more! We will also have the first of our garlic braids and dried flower bouquets. The market runs 9am- 1pm. Keep an eye out for more emails about our upcoming holiday markets where you can get even more dried flower products and wreaths! See you there!
