As I mentioned in my last blog post, this season I am offering you “a piece of our orchard”. You will be able to be a member of Masia Escrigas and be part of our small organic family farm.
All members will receive a basket at home with different fresh products that we will be harvesting in the orchard every week or fortnightly (as preferred). Each season consists in 6 months, summer crops (april to september) and winter crops (october to March).
Becoming a member of Masia Escrigas contributes to:
Favor a small family project.
Contribute to the environment by supporting the effective implementation of organic farming.
Following are the benefits you will get as a member:
During the season you will be updated on the happenings in farm and vegetable gardens.
You will receive some recipes with seasonal products and any other surprise that we believe that will be of your interest.
Throughout the year we will organize some events in the farm where you will have preference to book versus the interested non-members; as well as a discount.
We invite members to participate in some crops and visit the orchard. So you can see the evolution of the crops and you will have the opportunity to harvest your own basket for that week.
You will get discount on some of the extra products that you can add to your baskets.
ADVANTAGES FOR THE CONSUMER:
- Access to organic, healthy and very fresh products matured under the sun. Therefore you will be able to consume a product that preserves all its taste and its properties.
- Get out of the routine in the kitchen with the same product throughout the year. Motivation for cooking new dishes with seasonal products. (Nature is wise and vegetables that grow at each season of the year give to the body the properties that we most need during that period).
- Discounts on other products on the web.
- For those who have children, throughout the year we will organize some activities in the same farm where children will also be able to participate and discover where the vegetables and eggs they eat at home come from. They will be able to make “theirs” a little bit of our farm.
- You will be able to follow the whole process of your food, from being planted until it reaches your homes.
ADVANTAGES FOR US:
We will have the opportunity to know in first person all the people. I would love to meet all the people who believe in our project and consume our products.
It will be easier for us to plan the amounts we plant of each thing.
Having a forecast of monthly sales guaranteed, will allow me to hire a person to help me in the tasks of the orchard and therefore to grow a larger range of veggies and offer you more variety.
Before being able to harvest, we have to buy a lot of material (irrigation systems, biodegradable mesh, seeds …) and there are many long days and hours of work. Preparing the soil, irrigation, padding, sowing, pruning, pest prevention (through infusions of wild herbs that we first harvest in the forest), … The membership fees will helps us to make these months before harvesting less tough.

Looking forward having you in our small organic family farm! <3
