Dear members

We are moving our start date for weekly shares one week back to the week of April 21, 2014 from the expected start this coming week of 4/15. Our apologies, but we were waiting to see what was going to happen with the weather. Many of our farmers experienced a frost early this week, and another is expected next week in certain areas.  By moving the start date, our expectation is to be able to have better selection and quantity for you from the beginning of the season.

Richmond CSA members: you will be able to pick up starting Wednesday, 4/23

NOVA/DC: we will be dropping on Tuesday, 4/22.

Bi-weekly shares will start as expected, the week of 4/21.

Not a member yet? Sign up now! We offer an extremely flexible CSA program with a lot of fresh, local produce! summer box

“Shop for a Reason” March 26th 4pm – 7pm

Come visit us during our upcoming FUNdraiser at Rumors Boutique, located at 723 West Broad St. Richmond, VA. As part of their “Shop for a Reason” campaign to help small, local non-profits (like us) Rumors Boutique will be donating 20% of their total takings on Wednesday, March 26th between 4pm and 7pm. Help us make this an awesome day by coming out and bringing five friends! EVERYONE can help by spending just a little money (or a lot).

Rumors Boutique is a local consignment/thrift store with a great selection of clothing and accessories. If you have never been before you should definitely come out March 26th, 4pm – 7pm! Come support our non-profit, BUSFARM, and an excellent local business at the same time.

Has anyone ever had a better reason to shop for themselves?

RVA Card:

We are now participating with RVA Card! Show your RVA Card at over 150  local businesses around Richmond to receive exclusive pricing and special offers. The cost is only $10 and the savings are endless!

Show your card at the Market and get 10% off a Grab-and-Go box and a buy-one-get-one deal on apples on Wednesdays.

We need sponsorship!

For $250, one thousand RVA Cards will be dedicated to our non-profit, which translates to $5,000 in returns when all those cards are sold. For $150, you can get TWO quarter-page ads in the seasonal RVA Card catalog, one for BUSFARM and one for your corporation or organization.

Suggestion Box:

We want to hear from you! As a non-profit our goal is to serve the community, so let your voice be heard! Tell us what you would like to see, your exciting ideas, and how we can better serve you. Visit us at the store or email us at suggestionbox.busfarm@gmail.com

Call for volunteers and interns!

Spring is nearly here and we have a lot of great projects in the works: school field trips, the farmer’s market, two CSA programs, as urban farm that needs to be planted, and so much more! Want to get involved? We are now looking for more volunteers and interns. Contact us today to help on specific projects, suggest new ones, to be put on our volunteer day mailing list, or even just lend an extra set of hands when you can.
