Rewards of being a shareholder

I depend on you, my dear shareholders, to [support—>why pannier] me, so I make every effort to reward your generosity.

 

Each share purchase comes with:

A tasty welcome gift in your first share

A tasty thank you gift in your last share

One organic cotton bag, to carry and store your bread

A little booklet introducing you to your share

 

In addition each share is delivered with:

Freezer bags, because sometimes you want to keep a little for later

By buying a share you are taking ownership in your food, moving away from being a passive consumer and towards participation in an alternative food system that stewards the land and community.

You are buying into a food chain that is short, local, and glued together by real relationships that connect you, the eater, directly to the sun and soil.

You are also helping to breathe life into timeless skills, from practices that build soil fertility, to small-scale milling, to the slow and gentle cultivation of the living organisms that ferment the bread you eat.  If this sounds like you, click [here—>ordering] to get started!
