Hundred Fruit Farm Buyers Club

What is our Buyer's Club? It's kind of like a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) system, but it's structured more like a COSTCO or BJ's membership, in which members pay a membership fee and then have exclusive access to everything we sell in terms of berries, fruit, herbs, mushrooms and other produce. The annual membership fee is $60 for new members and $50 for returning members. Once the season starts, we will send a weekly email out to members to let them know what we have available, and then members can come to grab what they want on the designated pickup day. Each week we also will include a couple different free items! (More Info Below.)

What kind of items are available for purchase?

Hundred Fruit Farm is as much a farm as it is a permaculture design business, homestead, education center, and hobby nursery. So growing food for sale is only a small part of what we do. So we want to be completely upfront with the fact that we don't have large amounts and large varieties of produce compared to most CSAs. Our focus is mostly on berries, herbs, tree fruits, and pastured eggs. We will sell vegetables too, but more sporadically because it's less of a focus for us. What we can offer is a lot of unique and unusual things you just won't find at other CSAs! Here's a list of most of the various crops we should be selling at some point (barring any crop failures):

  • asparagus: springtime in limited quantities (April through May)

  • strawberries: U-pick and pre-picked options and usually very plentiful! (June)

  • currants: U-pick and pre-picked, red/white and black currants, large quantities available (mid June through early July)

  • blueberries: in limited u-pick quantities, but more than last year (mid June through mid July)

  • aronia berries: U-pick and pre-picked, native berry superfood, large quantities available! (mid-late August)

  • red raspberries and blackberries: U-pick in limited quantities (June to July)

  • elderberries: flowers (June) and berries available in large quantities for u-pick (August)

  • ground cherries: should be lots available, mostly for u-pick (August through Sep)

  • pawpaws: delicious native tree fruits, large quantities available (mid September through mid October)

  • peaches: dependent on seasonal disease/insect pressure, limited quantities (July/August)

  • pears and apples: dependent on disease/insect pressure, limited quantities (August through September)

  • persimmons: very sweet and late in the season in limited quantities (Oct through Nov)

  • potatoes: usually several different kinds (early July through August)

  • sweet potatoes: delicious and sweet (October through end of season)

  • thyme, rosemary, sage, oregano, hyssop, garlic chives: U-pick only this year (all season-long)

  • other culinary herbs: basil, dill, cilantro, parsley (mid-season)

  • mints: spearmint, pineapple mint, chocolate mint (almost all season-long)

  • shiitake mushrooms: log-grown flushes (sporadically through spring and fall)

  • wine cap and other foraged mushrooms (sporadically when available)

  • perilla leaves: minty Asian leaf vegetable (mid July through end of season)

  • beans: tricolor string beans (late summer)

  • tea/medicinal herbs: catmint, anise hyssop, Korean hyssop (most of the season)

  • basils: Italian basil, holy basil, Thai basil (mid to late summer)

  • wildflower bouquets: (FREE) u-pick from a mix of seasonal wildflowers and other flowers (most of the season)

  • medicinal herbs: (FREE) U-pick comfrey, yarrow, anise hyssop, catmint, and others (most of the season)

  • tomatoes, peppers, eggplants: (late July through end of season)

  • other veggies: lettuce, kale, chard, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash, winter squash, okra (sporadically, seasonally)

  • watermelons: hopefully! (late July through early Sep)

  • other tree fruits: No promises, but fingers crossed we should have some other fruits available this year in limited amounts as well (sporadically, late summer to early fall)

  • other berries: Nanking cherries, autumnberries, gooseberries, jostaberries (limited amounts, seasonally)

We also sell various plants in our edible landscaping nursery, which all Buyers Club members receive a 10% discount on. In terms of plants, we sell pawpaw trees, red/white/pink currants, black currants, elderberries, native strawberries, nanking cherries, semi-dwarf apples, honeyberries, and more!


When are pickup days/times?

We will usually have two pickups day each week for 2023; on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm and on Tuesdays from 3 pm to 7 pm. These are also the times members can come for U-pick, depending on what's available. Occasionally, when we have very little crops to sell in a given week, we may decide not to have any pickup days that week, but this won't happen very often.

How can I pay for what I buy?

Whatever you decide to buy on pickup days is always paid for in-person on the farm. We use square for payment processing. We can take credit cards, cash, checks, etc.

Are you certified organic? What are your farming methods like?


We subscribe to the permaculture ethics of care for the Earth, care for the people, and fair share. So we use only regenerative, organic-approved methods, but we do not bother with the costly and burdensome organic certification process. Our customers are able to come directly to our farm and see for themselves the regenerative farming practices we use - without pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs. Our farm makes use of crop rotations, beneficial insects, compost, cover crops, no/low-till, and other organic management practices. We also make a point of not using disposable black plastic mulch and only using natural mulches like straw, compost, and wood chips. If you are ever curious about any of the practices we use, ask us! We welcome the questions and curiosity.

I heard that organic farms still use certain pesticides. Do you do this?

It's true that many organic farms use natural pesticides allowed under the organic certification rules, but we do not use pesticides of any kind, even the ones approved for organic production. We have a completely no spray philosophy. We rely instead on a combination of birds, beneficial insects, and preventative measures to holistically manage pests in a natural way without using even organic-approved sprays. 

Do I have to order something every week?

No, absolutely not! You only place an order if you want to get something that week. But if you place an order, we expect you to come pick it up and pay for it.

Is there a work commitment for this?

Our buyer's club requires no work commitment. If you want to volunteer, let us know, as we can always use extra hands during the weekdays. But it is in no way required as part of membership.

Any additional questions?
