Greetings from Crooked Carrot -
We're happy to announce the launch of our Carrot Cash program! It's an exciting new way to invest in local food. Read on for more details.
What is Carrot Cash?
Carrot Cash is a financial tool for community-scale investment in our local food system. By investing in Carrot Cash, members get more healthy, delicious food for their money (see the Pickled Rate of Return below), and Crooked Carrot gets the financing they need to buy abundant, in season produce directly from local, ecologically minded family farms. Having a more abundant cash flow earlier in the season allows us to purchase high quality produce "2nds" and surpluses that would otherwise go to waste, helping us all get more out of the hard work and resources that go into our local farms. Using traditional techniques such as fermentation and canning, Crooked Carrot preserves these ingredients, creating meaningful jobs and making more local food available to local people year round.
How does it work?
Purchase a Carrot Cash card at any of our farmers' market stands, by mail, or at the Full Plate Farm Collective farm pick-ups.
Get bonus credit at the following PROR (Pickled Rate of Return):
5% bonus on $100 +
10% bonus on $200 +
15% bonus on $1000 +
Spend your Carrot Cash at any of our farmers' market stands, on special orders for cases and bulk quantities of our products, and at the a la carte coolers at Full Plate farm pick up sites. Just like a check book ledger, you subtract each purchase from your balance as you go. We can help with these transactions at market, and Sara will be available to assist you at Full Plate pick ups.
Please get in touch with us if you have any questions, or if you would like to request a card by mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Silas, Johanna, Jesse, and Anna
