Rosebird + Harvie
Our CSA is run through the Harvie platform which offers members several additional layers of value compared to the typical CSA experience. Convenience, affordability, and customization make it easy to support your local farmers and access the amazing food they are bringing to our community.
What is Harvie?
Harvie is a software platform that helps CSA farmers meet their customers' needs through a customizable farm share program. When you sign up for a Rosebird Gardens CSA Share, you will do so under our personal sign up page through the Harvie website.
Each week's share will be based on your preferences. For example: don't like beets? You will never get them in your share! And each week you can further customize your share, as well as order extras if you like.
Harvie gives you more choice and flexibility while still supporting local, seasonal farmers!
How Does It Work?
After signing up for our CSA, Harvie will provide you with a list of all the crops that we grow and you will rate each item from 1 ("I never want it in my share") to 5 ("I love it!").
Based on your preferences and our seasonal harvests from each farm each week, Harvie chooses what will go in your share and sends a notification to you about your share.
Each week you will have 48 hours to make changes to your share or order extras if you like.
Why Use Harvie?
We love the CSA model and feel very strongly about it's value to customers, farmers and the land, but we can always do better.
Harvie is better!
With Harvie helping to manage the CSA, you maintain a direct connection to agriculture and the food your family eats, but increase your control and flexibility over each week's share.
By setting your individual vegetable preferences when you sign up, your weekly share is automatically tailored to your personal tastes or dietary requirements. (Plus you can update your preferences anytime!)
We're very excited about this innovation in CSA farming and we know you will be too!
Rosebird + Harvie
When you sign up for a CSA with Rosebird, you set your personal preferences for each vegetable we grow! Each delivery week you can then customize further based on what’s coming out of the fields. This level of customization will help you use everything in the share because you’ll love everything you are getting.
Reduced Food Waste
Because you are getting what you want, you’ll see less food getting tossed or composted which is going to ensure you are getting the biggest bang for your buck.
Purchase Delivery Extras
Order “extra” items we have available to put right in your share with just a few clicks of a button which means less trips to the grocery store and more time in your day.
No time to come to pick up each week? Select home delivery and have your goods dropped at your front door.
Vacation planned? No problem. You can easily change the delivery date for your share and schedule two shares on a different week so no more missing out on those veggies you paid for. You can still always send a friend, co-worker, or family member to get your share anytime!
Cooking Suggestion Engine
Fridge full of food but nothing for dinner? We’ve got you covered. Rosebird and Harvie provide you with recipe suggestions, cooking tips, storage, and food prep resources so you won’t be scrambling to get dinner on the table.
Both of the teams at Rosebird and Harvie are working to create farm share resources and trainings designed to help you make the best use of your farm share!
The Harvie help desk is available () to help you with you sign up and to manage your share, when necessary!
