My family and I go through huge amounts of produce every week and we like to buy as much organic as possible. We've found a way to skip the grocery store and pay wholesale prices for organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
We will be ordering from a great company called Global Organics that specializes in group buy programs and co-ops. We thought we'd start a local organic group buy program so that everyone who wants organic produce can save loads of money. You'll be paying less than you would for conventional (pesticide laden) produce and you'll be getting wholesome, organic, earth friendly produce, plus a larger selection of organics than your local market.
We will be getting deliveries once a week. The current order sheet/price list will be updated every Thursday night and orders will need to be placed by Saturday night.
We started a facebook group so that all members can communicate and share/split certain items/cases if wanted. We will post the current price sheet on facebook as we receive it or we can e-mail it.
Here is the facebook link:
We will have an organized pickup day on Monday or Tuesday when the produce is delivered in Trussville and we will also be offering home delivery for a small fee just to cover transportation expenses.
We would like to start ordering as soon as possible but need more people to sign up so please let us know if you are interested.
Below is a sample price sheet from the week of September 23rd, 2009 so you can get an idea of prices and produce availability.
