Farm Fidelity CardBy popular demand, we are bringing back our fidelity program.
There are people who love our vegetables and would like to support our farm but find the weekly basket concept too restrictive for their lifestyle. Summer travel plans, a desire to make selective purchases, and basket amounts either too large or too small for their meal budgets make it difficult for them to make a 18-week commitment.
For these folks we now offer the Farm Fidelity Card, an easy way to buy the variety of vegetables you want, in the quantity you want, when you want — and still make an important financial commitment to our small organic farm.
How it worksPurchase a Farm Fidelity Card for $275 and receive a credit at Ferme du Zephyr market stands for the amount you’ve paid plus 10%. The credit is available for the 2013 season at our NDG market location (Thursdays, 3 - 7 pm) and at our Pointe-Claire market location (Tuesdays from 3 – 7 pm) from mid-June to the end of the season, usually around November. Any leftover credit will NOT be extended to 2014, so be sure to eat all your vegetables.
Ferme du Zephyr market stands will have a cashier dedicated to serving Farm Fidelity Card clients.
