CSA Referral Rewards

Hello loyal CSA members!  We want to thank you for your support of our farm, and that's why we're excited to continue our popular CSA Referral Rewards Program!  Again this year, you can support local agriculture and earn your veggies at the same time!  

Thank you!
In just a few short years our CSA program has grown by leaps and bounds largely thanks to the wonderful word-of-mouth advertising we’ve received from our awesome, loyal members!  We created this program as a way to acknowledge and reward you, our devoted CSA members, for the important role you play in the support and promotion of our farm and local agriculture.  So, keep up the good work!  Again this year, for every new, first time member you recruit you’ll earn one week of your CSA share free!

Referral Rewards Basics:

  • Refer one friend who successfully joins this year's CSA by purchasing a farm share subscription and you earn one free week of CSA veggies from your subscription. 
  • Refer another who successfully joins and you gain another free week's share, and so on.
  • Redeem your reward at the end of the CSA distribution season in late October as (1) extra veggies, (2) re-investment towards your next CSA share, (3) cash back, or (4) a donation of vegetables from our farm to a food pantry.  Its your choice!

How it works is simple:

  • Ask your friend to write your name on the referral line of your friend’s paper or online sign up form (see photo).  Then, we’ll keep track of your earned shares and reward you at the end of the season.
  • Having your friends and family as members of Ripley Farm's CSA is also great for you!  You can chat at CSA pickups, share recipes, and pick up each other's farm shares if you go on vacation! 

We love our supportive community!
Our CSA program fledged out of its nest four years ago.  Since 2011, we have witnessed the true meaning of "Community Supported Agriculture" grow up around our small farm!  Our heartfelt thanks goes out to our past and present CSA members who have been tremendously supportive of our farm and of local agriculture in central Maine.  We love all of the wonderful connections and friendships that we have made through the common bond of a love for delicious fresh food and look forward to many more in the years to come!

Fine print details:

  • Anyone making referrals prior to purchasing a subscription themselves can only claim their reward if they themselves purchase a subscription to the current year's Summer CSA Program at Ripley Farm.  Make sure to sign yourself up as we will sell out our farm shares prior to the summer!
  • A successful referral means a new, first time Summer CSA member at Ripley Farm who has completed all payments for the current year's farm share program. 
  • Referrals made for the Winter CSA program are not eligible for rewards at this time.
  • There is no limit to the number of referrals per membership.  You can continue making referrals until our CSA program sells out for the year. 
  • We are happy to send you printed brochures to distribute or feel free to refer your friends to our website, facebook page, and download additional brochures from our website.
  • We will distribute the rewards for your referrals after the last CSA pick up on October 24, 2018.  We will be in touch with you shortly before this date so that you can tell us how you would like to use your reward.
  • You can choose what to do with your accumulated rewards:  (1) extra veggies at the last CSA pickup on October 24; (2) a reinvestment towards your next CSA purchase at Ripley Farm in the form of credit; (3) cash back in the form of a check; OR (4) we'll make a donation of our vegetables to a food pantry of our choice in the amount that you have accumulated. 
  • The value of one CSA share is $24.00.  If you are a Bangor member who makes a successful referral, we will reward you with the value of one week's vegetables, but will not include the delivery fee.
  • The Referral Rewards Program at Ripley Farm applies to individuals only.  No company, organization, or business is eligible for rewards.
