  • What is your #1 tip for Buyer's Club members? My #1 tip is to make a plan. Mark your calendars for each pickup. Ask a few family of friends to be your alternative pickup point-person if you are out of town or unable to pick up.  Become knowledgeable of the process and your commitment to the farm and yourself.
