Yes, I talk a lot about “Harvie.” Sometimes I love Harvie, sometimes Harvie’s a pain in the neck! We have a love/hate relationship.

CSA members realize that to know and understand Harvie is to mostly love “him.” 

Harvie is Oak Spring’s online customizable CSA platform.

Our farm has partnered with Harvie since 2019 to give members an abundance of flexibility and choice.  You choose at the beginning of the season what will and will not go in your share by setting preferences. Then you have flexibility in what goes in your share each week.  Customization means you will eat more healthy, farm fresh food because you’re getting more of what you like.

But customization is only one of numerous CSA benefits you’ll have access to with this quirky online account. Let’s walk through some other important Harvie features.

REDUCE FOOD WASTE

Food waste is the #1 reason folks don’t return to a CSA, and we want to fix that!

Because you will get more of what you want with customized shares, you’ll see less food getting tossed or composted, which ensures you’ll get the biggest bang for your buck. You’ll waste less food, while directly supporting local farms — win win!!

How it works: by rating the different vegetables we grow with a ranking of 1-5, Harvie’s algorithm will customize your weekly share. Furthermore, it will allow you to swap items in and out of your customized share each week if you want to try something new or stock up on an available favorite.

This will help you use everything in your share because you’ll love everything you get! 


 

“I liked the idea of being able to see and edit my basket’s contents before pick up day. Customization reduces waste and makes menu planning more efficient.” -HARVIE MEMBER

“I adore farm-fresh food; however sometimes with a “regular” share you get piles and piles of something you just can’t stand. Harvie lets me tweak my share so food doesn’t go to waste.” -HARVIE MEMBER
