Welcome to Fair Shares Season 14 Wk6

We'll see all Full Share, Mini Share, and EVEN-week Half-Share members this week. Half share members, note that you will receive the newsletter weekly, and you may request access to order through the store on your off weeks. Check your subscriptions in your Farmigo account if you are unsure whether you are an ODD- or EVEN-week half share.

Your assigned pickup day is [Delivery Day], but if you need to switch the day, reply to this email before 10a.m. Wednesday. Selecting the different day in the store is not the way to do it!

LOGIN HERE to select your time and ADD it in your cart. Make sure that the time you want is in your order confirmation email. You may update your cart as many times as you like.
Your share will be packed for you whether you select a time or not, it just helps us have it ready when you arrive.

This email is how we communicate with members. Please at least scan it so you know any important information. For instance: NEW THIS SEASON - All members must complete trades and orders by 10:30a.m. Wednesday.


New Product!
Last week we had a visit from Mark Engel, the owner of Fifth Taste Food, maker of oo'mämē Chili Crisps,
who was interested in sampling a new meat substitute he's producing. We were able to give him the feedback that we think our members will LOVE these new products, which is what he needed to hear to make the leap to scale up production, and we are looking forward to offering it whenever it's ready.

We also had the good fortune of trying out all four of the oo'mämē Chili Crisps, and are please to offer them in the store this week. We're able to offer a better price than many retailers, so get your goods here! Check out the varieties in the Canned/Dried/Frozen Produce & Condiments Category of the online store.

Order Ahead Starter Plants
We forgot to mention that Keith Biver would love to get his pots and plant tags back--there is apparently a big shortage, and he's been having trouble getting his deliveries.

We're still taking pre - orders for starter herb and vegetable plants from Biver Farms. Select the certified organic plants you'd like from the online store, under the Bedding Plants - Herbs, Flowers, Vegetables category.

Some plants will be three packs, some will be single, and will cost $2.75 each. A few varieties will be in six packs and will cost a little more …

Bison Note

Jim Sample of Meramec Bison has informed us that his wife Joan had a bad accident and he'll be caring for her, so they are giving up the biz. The only bison he currently has is from in S. Dakota. We offered to take it, so don't be alarmed if you see that. It's happy meat and we're helping our local bison farmer. We wish Joan a speedy recovery.

Stay tuned for news on our new bison farmer, who is a Fair Shares member turned rancher!

It's Schlafly Beer Thirty

You can purchase beer from Schlafly's website (linked below) and pick it up at the Mothership or UCity when you come for your share.

Purchase from Schlafly's online system by 10 a.m. Wednesday, and then let us know by adding the Schlafly Beer item in your cart.


Notes on Trades and Orders

If you have questions or an issue to resolve, please email info@fairsahares.org. We get over 400 order confirmation emails in the orders@fairshares.org account and WE DO NOT CHECK THEM, so if you want a reply, use info@fairshares.org, which goes to both Jamie and Sara, and one of us will see it!

The share clipboards below will include the fresh produce on your list, but the cart in your Farmigo account lists only the tradable items in your share. You must spend the total credit value in your cart but you are welcome to buy extra.

Here's a video demo on how to make trades. Note that Farmigo has updated their system to allow you to click certain items in your cart that have variations for you to select. Here's the link to LOGIN.

Please check the descriptions of items! Some things are sold by the pound so the actual price will be different from what's listed in the store. If what's in your bag is not what you were expecting, give it back. If you're at the Mothership, you may be able to choose something else.

Pro Tip: You can browse the store when it's "closed" by logging out of your account.
All members must complete trades and orders by 10:30a.m. Wednesday.
