This is a pic of today's buying club order. Right now, I sell to 3 different local buying clubs. It's an interesting model. I still prefer selling direct at farmer's markets, but this has been a fabulous way to market my goods in the off season. Each week I email the 3 different coordinators of the buying club my list of available products and they put together an email listing all the participating vendors goods and customers email their orders. The " leaders " compile and organize the orders, organize a day a week that the farmers drop off their goods and then the customers come and pick up their orders. The coordinators are paid a % for their effort,( they do a lot of work ) payable with food. It's interesting, very grassroots.
Here's what I packed this morning:
9 - Half gallons of Creamline Raw Milk
2 - Pints Raw Cream
3 - 16 oz Plain Whole Milk Yogurts
2 - 16 oz Red Raspberry Yogurts
2 - 16 oz Mission Fig Yogurts
2 - 8 oz Red Raspberry Yogurts
1 - 8 oz Mission Fig Yogurt
2 - 16 oz Fromage Blanc w/ Garlic & Herbs in Olive Oil
2 - 8 oz Cranberry Nut Cream Cheese Balls
5- 1/2 lb wedges of Raw Milk Farmhouse Cheddar
One order down. Two more buying club orders due by Noon on Thursday. Today my Aunt said, " I don't know how you do it all ! " And you know what came out of my mouth? " Well I don't spend all day changing diapers anymore. " That went over well. I think it just might be my new tagline.
