Introducing the new Two Bear Farm “Bear Bucks” program. This is a prepaid electronic “card” (which means there is no physical card, just an account), that allows you the opportunity to invest in our farm without buying a partial CSA share. We see it as a great compromise for folks who want more flexibility than a traditional CSA offers, yet still receive the benefits of being a CSA member.
How does it work? You sign up for Bear Bucks online by following this link. You pay $350 and we credit your account for $365 worth of produce on our market software. When Farmer’s Market season begins, instead of going to get your CSA share, you would simply shop at our market stand and tell us your name at checkout, and we would deduct your total from your balance. Easy and simple. The big benefit is that you get to select what you want each week, rather than us packing your CSA share for you. Want two bags of salad mix…great! Don’t want the eggplant…fine! Want 6 head of bok choy….well, let’s not get crazy! And you also have the flexibility of not showing up on any given week, with no need to request a CSA hold or double box. And if you have friends in town, you can buy as much food as you want that week….there is no limit on a weekly basis other than your remaining balance. This option is only available at the three farmers markets in Whitefish, Kalispell and Columbia Falls, and cannot be used in Glacier or at the Farm CSA . You will be able to use your Bear bucks at the final stock up sale at the farm. We see it as a great compromise for someone who still wants to invest in our farm yet still get the member discount as well as some flexibility. When you buy the swipe card for 350.00 you will receive 365.00 of produce. Please ignore the other buttons and just choose the 365.00 option.
