The November cycle is now open and scheduled to close a week before Thanksgiving. Because we understand shoppers need some predictability for holiday shopping, and because we have had some successful cycles, the cycle goal is set low in the hope we can ship on the scheduled date. We still need around $5000 per cycle to be profitable, but can afford to take a small loss to help smooth shopping for the holidays. Please do what you can to make this a successful cycle!
NOTE: We have contacted some turkey producers, but there are still no turkeys listed at the time of cycle opening, so please check back if you are looking for turkey.
IMPORTANT: Late checkouts will no longer be processed. Baskets that are not checked before closing time will be emptied. So please be sure to check out your basket no later than the closing Sunday at 8:00 PM.
We will make an effort to send a reminder email and a text message to the mobile phone number of members with open shopping baskets on Sundays before to closing. Please ensure your email address and phone numbers are up to date so we can contact you (go to your Member Panel and Update My Contact Information).
As previously, we need to meet our ordering goal before Wednesday evening in order for the cycle to close on the following Sunday.
Please watch the newsletter for updates on best shopping practices to help them out. If you are not already receiving it, we encourage you to sign up for the newsletter here.
How NFC’s online farmer’s market works…
We are ultimately a volunteer cooperative, which is the best kind of community collaboration where members chip in with the workload and everyone benefits. From the local farmers and ranchers to the admin staff, site coordinators and our members, we all choose to…
Eat Local – Eat Fresh – Eat Healthily
NFC runs regular buying cycles. Our co-op is technology driven so, our website allows you to buy the best food from a Nebraska producer that can be miles away.
Buying cyclesnow close at 8:00 PM on Sunday, when we have met the ordering goal prior to Wednesday evening. Then producers weigh and sort your order and the system prepares your invoice. Early Tuesday morning we start picking up your orders, and by Wednesday, they are delivered to your chosen pick-up site. The site manager will tuck your order away in the freezer ready for your collection. It’s important that you remember to pay for your order online before you collect your order.
Simple – Easy – Efficient
You might need to put a bit more thought into your orders and meal plans because local does mean seasonal, but it’s worth it when you realize just how fresh your food is. Remember, we are a click or DM away, so just reach out to us!
