We are using Small Farm Central’s fabulous new signup and management program “Harvie” for our 2020 Farm Share program because it lets you register your preferences, manage your box contents, easily hold boxes when you are away, and change your pick up location.   You can go immediately to HCF Harvie-Signup.  

If you have any questions, send us an email at hcffarmers@gmail.com or call Judy at (919) 274-0024.    

If you want to know more about why we use Harvie, read the information below.  

For years we used Member Assembler, an application created by Simon Huntley of Small Farm Central (SFC) to help us to advertise, to enroll, and to communicate with our CSA customers. This program has served us well; however, recently, Simon and his colleagues at SFC developed Harvie an application that permits local farms to run a customizable and consumer-friendly CSA or farm share program.  We believe you will like this program for the following reasons:

  • Customized boxes are created for you based on the preferences you select at sign-up. You have the option to edit the contents of your box each week. This is, of course, based on availability. However, if you want us to select for you as we have done in the past, we will gladly do so.  We expect customized shares to reduce food waste because of your ability to make choices. 
  • Option to order extra items. Sister and her children coming for the week? You can order extra items with a few clicks, and we will put them in your shares. This saves time in preparing meals and shopping for a crowd.
  • Flexible payment plans: If you cannot pay in full at the beginning, you can choose a flexible payment plan. Your card will be charged automatically as the season progresses and your shares are delivered. 
  •  Vacation holds and changes in your pick-up location. You can use Harvie to notify us to hold your box for planned vacations and to schedule double-boxes for a different week. You can also change your pickup location to one of our other locations. 
  • Additional help with meal planning: For nearly two decades, Harland’s Creek Farm has provided meal plans and recipes to our CSA customers. This was essential when we began; however, now if you want, for example, a kale and pasta dish for dinner, a quick internet search will yield millions of hits. (I just searched on “lacinato kale and pasta” and got 1.5 million results). Harvie has built-in features that included recipe suggestions, cooking tips, storage, and food prep resources. Thus, HCF is discontinuing our weekly meal plans; however, we will still provide a printed cookbook, which will contain an edited compendium of meal plans for spring, summer, and fall.
