New Maia cooperative forming!

Hello from your favorite farm in Agate! Big news!  We’ll be joining a brand new Maia Cooperative of local farmers and, just as when two people get married, when our farm and other farms organize a cooperative, so many good things can happen.
We’ll still be TwoInTents, but we’ll be working with a lot of new friends.  As one of the founding members of Maia, we are making sure that the same quality standards that we employ are kept: no chemicals, humane and compassionate treatment of animals, non-profit management, and a strong dedication to giving back to the community. 
By joining with Maia, we can keep our prices to you the same (or lower them) as we group buy seeds, equipment, animal feeds, vet care, building supplies and other things we need to do our job.  And, we’ll also be able to offer all kinds of new tasty treats, too!  The best news is that as our current customers, you can soon have a choice to help establish the quality standards you want, or contribute with volunteering, gardening or in other ways to either earn credit towards purchases, or greater ownership in the cooperative!  Maia will be working not only to help us feed you and your family, but to empower you to feed yourself, too.
One change you will see is in our prices.  In 2012, we will be offering “member” and “non-member” prices.  Current subscribers will be given automatic membership in the new cooperative, so don’t worry!  Another change is that you will see products from Maia, and other Maia members (Maia will also group-produce some items) sold by the pound, rather than by the 1/3 bushel or full bushel box.  These can be included in your box, and when a per-pound price is offered, a conversion to boxes will be offered too so you know how many gallons or bushels a pound is.
This sort of flexibility is what we aim for: to get you what you want, when you want it, and at the price you need.  Now that TwoInTents is working with Maia, you’ll have greater ability than ever before to help keep your food prices low, your quality of eating high, have greater selection, and do a lot of good for this planet and your community. 
 We think many small farmers working together is a good thing for every one.  Let us know what you think!
