Anyone can order our veggies on GrownBy from June through October and pay with a credit card for your purchase. There are no special steps to take in order to do this.

 

If you'd like to save some money and help us – your farmers! – by making more of a commitment to purchasing our vegetables, you can buy farm credit from us on GrownBy. Here's how it works:

HOW TO PURCHASE FARM CREDIT AS A NEW CUSTOMER 

OR RE-UP WITH MORE CREDIT AS AN EXISTING CUSTOMER!

Farm credit can be used to order online AND ALSO to purchase our products in-person

at Left Bank Ciders + the Rhinebeck Farmers' Market!

  1. Go to our GrownBy shop.

  2. Select the Farm Credit button.

  3. Select the amount of Farm Credit you'd like to purchase. Currently we have two options:
    > If you purchase $200 in farm credit, you'll receive a bonus of $20, which will give you a tot
    al of $220 in farm credit!
    > If you purchase $400 in farm credit, you'll receive a bonus
    of $50, which will give you a total of $450 in farm credit!

  4. Click the cart to checkout in the upper righthand corner.
    NOTE: If you are a new customer, you may be prompted to create a GrownBy account at this point!

  5. Select "Add a Payment Method" to enter your payment method.
    NOTE: If you want to pay by check, please select "Pay Offline," and mail your check to: The Lo Farm, 5204 Route 32, Catskill, NY 12414. We will add your farm credit and bonus once we receive you
    r payment. Check payments are only accepted for a purchase of farm credit, NOT for purchasing produce.

     

You'll be able to use your farm credit to purchase our vegetables on GrownBy, and you can ALSO use it to shop in-person with us at Left Bank Ciders on Thursdays and at the Rhinebeck Farmers' Market on Sundays!

IS ONLINE ORDERING
A GOOD FIT FOR ME?

A GREAT OPTION IF YOU'RE

UNABLE TO SHOP WITH US IN PERSON

 

We'll be at Left Bank Ciders every Thursday from May through November with a market-style setup of vegetables, flowers and seedlings. We'll also be at the Rhinebeck Farmers' Market every Sunday from May through November. But if you're unable to shop with us in person one week (or EVER), ordering online for Wednesday pickup in Catskill or New Paltz is the right fit for you! 

 

 

NO NEED TO ORDER EVERY WEEK

 

You can pop on and order online any week that you'd like to, from June through October. We do not require you to order every week! So if you're going out of town, or simply don't need to get more veggies, no worries – you can come back and order another week.

 

GROWNBY: OUR ONLINE ORDERING PLATFORM

We use GrownBy, an online market-style platform that was made by farmers, for farmers. It allows us to easily update inventory right on our phones while we are out in the field, and it gives customers a comprehensive platform to purchase our veg! Customers are able to go to the GrownBy website on their favorite browser on a desktop computer, or they can use the handy GrownBy app on a smartphone or tablet! Here's a glimpse of what our online shop looks like during the season on a smartphone/tablet app (to the right) and on a desktop computer (below).

Can I check the remaining balance of my farm credit anytime?
Yes, you can check your farm credit balance on
GrownBy: simply log in, go to your Account, and click "Farm Credits".

Do I have to use up all of my farm credit before the end of the season?
No, you don't have to use up your farm credit before the end of the farm season; funds will roll over to the following year.

How can I buy farm credit?
You can purchase farm credit by
visiting our online shop on GrownBy. The process is pretty intuitive, but if you need help, please click here to follow the steps listed above on this webpage! GrownBy is very farmer-friendly and at checkout they will ask you if you'd like to cover the credit card processing fees for your purchase; of course, we hope you do, as it is difficult for our small family farm to absorb all of these fees ♥

Do I have to purchase farm credit in order to buy from the online store?
No, you can purchase our veggies from the online store using a credit card if you don't have any farm credit. But you get bonus credit if you DO buy farm credit, so it really works in your favor to do so!

Wait, I liked the CSA box! Do you still offer CSA?
We no longer be offer traditional CSA boxes. In general, folks prefer to choose their own produce, and it actually allows us to farm a little smaller and a lot better!

Will I still get an email each week with recipes and storage tips?
A note from Leah, author of our weekly newsletter: Over the years we have gotten very kind feedback from farm members about how much they love our weekly emails. Thank you to everyone who has written to us or told us in person that you enjoy them. I have truly committed to putting time and effort into making them detailed and helpful. However, since we had a baby in 2022, our daily lives have really taken on a more chaotic shape, particularly during the farm season. During the time I have available when I am not on baby duty, I need to focus my efforts away from the computer and 100% on farming to ensure that you guys are getting the absolute best, highest quality, freshest veg possible! Because of this, there will be no long weekly newsletter during the season. For real-time farm updates you can follow us on social media, where we plan to continue posting about what's happening on the farm each week! And hopefully I'll be able to write a few newsletters whenever time allows ♥

If I buy farm credit, do I *have* to buy veggies from you each week? What if I go on vacation?
No, you do not have to buy veggies from us each week – only do so when you need to! It's really flexible.

What kinds of veggies will you have available on the online store?
The great thing about having an online store where customers select their own vegetables is that we can have a much wider variety of produce than is possible with a traditional CSA system. Occasionally we might have a super limited quantity of certain items, but in general we will have many and plenty of items weekly. While we aim to have all kinds of goodies available throughout the whole season, we are bound by our climate and certain items will be available only when they are "in season". In general, the beginning (cooler) part of the year tends to have more green items like salad greens, kales, broccolini, Bok choi, radishes; the midsummer heat lends itself to crops such as tomatoes, watermelons, zucchinis, cucumbers, peppers and early potatoes; and the shift into fall gives us sweet potatoes, leeks, winter squashes, more cool-weather salad greens, broccoli, cauliflower, and more. In the online ordering system, veggies don't go to waste! Whatever isn't ordered can stay in the ground, unharvested until later in the week at our farmers' market booth. This saves you money & us time and effort! It's a win win!
