|| We are pleased to announce a new program to our loyal customers: The
Happy Farm "Market CSA."
Invest in Good Food, Save Yourself Some Money, And Help Happy Farm Thrive How would you like to
save as much as 16.6% on every single item you buy from Happy Farm in 2010? Well, you can!
* Buy as much or as little as you like at the Happy Farm stand at the
Farmer's Market (or at the farm)
* Skip weeks
* Choose just the products you like
* Shop as you normally would -- except that you won't have to bring cash as everything
will already be paid for (no need to pre-order during the regular market season).
Subscribe before March 1st (or until all the available subscriptions have been sold) and we will
keep track of your balance and deduct your purchases each week.
Market CSA subscribers will also get first dibs on Thanksgiving Turkey reservations and other
special products and events during the year.
There are three levels of Happy Farm Market CSA to choose from:
Gold: Deposit $1,000 and get $1,200 credit (a 20% premium) in your Happy Farm account.
Silver: Deposit $500 and get $575 (a 15% premium) in your Happy Farm account.
Bronze: Deposit $250 and get $275 (a 10% premium) in your Happy Farm account.
* Add to your balance at any time during the year in $100 increments and we will extend you the same premium rate
you earned at sign-up.
Sign up now and start enjoying your discount right away! Just bring us your subscription check (made out to Happy
Farm) when you pick up your order this weekend or send it to Happy Farm, 1911 Gallows Hill Rd., Kintnersville, PA
What size subscription is right for you?
Think about how much you tend to spend a week:
$1,200 = ~$25/week; $575 = ~$12/week; $275 = ~$5.50/week - if you shop with us year round.
Invest about what you think you will spend for the year, or put yourself on an installment plan and buy in at the
level you can afford now and plan to add additional funds during the year.
Why are we offering Market CSA subscriptions?
1. We appreciate our loyal customers and want to make it as affordable as possible for you to feed
you families the best food around.
2. We can really use your support to help us balance our yearly cash flow. As you are probably aware farming
involves significant up front costs that must be covered before we can bring food to market. For example, it costs
us roughly $15 dollars and 22 weeks of care to add a new hen to the Happy Farm laying team - money that we have to
spend before we get a single egg to sell. Multiply that by 500 new hens each year and that adds up to $5,000 over
the 22 weeks. Meat chickens offer a quicker turn-around (8 to 10 weeks), but by the time we sell our first broilers
of the season we will have spent about $4,000 and invested 8 weeks of work. This makes late winter and spring a
financially-challenging time for us.
