The newest tool in the shed @ flying Plow is Harvie!
We are now running our CSA with the power of Harvie, a sharp tool that helps us better meet the needs of our CSA members.
What is Harvie?
Harvie is a software platform that helps CSA farmers meet their members' needs through a customizable program.
Each week's share will be based on your preferences. For example: don't like beets? You will never get them! And each week you can further customize your share, as well as order extras.
Harvie gives you more choice and flexibility while still supporting local farmers!
How Does It Work?
After signing up for our CSA, you will see a list of all the crops that we grow and you will rate each item from 0 ("I never want it in my share") to 5 ("I love it!").
Based on your preferences and the farmers’ entered harvest list, Harvie curates your perfect share and sends you an e-mail with a sneak peak of what to expect. You will have a window of time to swap items in your share or order extras.

Why Use Harvie?
We love the CSA model and feel very strongly about it's value to members, 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.
We're very excited about this innovation in CSA farming and we know you will be too!
