The Lar-Lyn Farmscription, an alternative to CSA

Let's face it everybody wants to join in on the local food bandwagon, buy local, and help out their communities and local farmers, but it is not as easy for busy lifestyles to get into "local foods."

The idea of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is very attractive to many people. The problem is the inflexibility of the current CSA model. Our farm worked with Virginia State University and Virginia Tech to think up a better way to offer a convenient and reasonable CSA. We came up with the idea of "Customer Sensitive Agriculture."

This is a CSA that is sensitive to our customers needs and wants from a local farmer. We offer more flexibility and choice to our customers, from plan sizes to local produce selection and you do not have to forfeit your vacation weeks. We give customers a 100% guarantee, if you are not satisfied, we refund the remainder of your balance, no questions asked!

How the Lar-Lyn Farmscription Works

In 2011, we are proud to offer our new Customer Sensitive Agriculture farmscription. In our farmscription program, you have the opportunity to pre-purchase a share of the harvest before the growing season begins. It works just like a subscription to your favorite magazine! This helps with farm start up costs for that growing season and assures they are able to bring you the very best they have to offer.

Our customers can pick from our weekly display of fresh-picked, premium quality, local produce set up at your neighborhood community center or workplace. In April, your beginning balance will be your prepaid amount. You will have a running balance until Sept 3rd. We also give you vacation weeks off, so you do not forfeit weeks you are away. We want to eliminate the problems of Community Supported Agriculture and change it to Customer Sensitive Agriculture.

Ask about setting up our farmscription display at your workplace, neighborhood, or church at a convenient day and time each week that the whole community can take part in. We need a minimum of 50 farmscription customers at each site. There is nothing like bringing a community together with great people and great food.
