What is ‘Healthy Bites Buying Club’?
Our Healthy Bites Buying Club at Donaldson Farms is a healthy and simple, 16-week local produce membership program that brings you our freshest fruits and vegetables – picked fresh just for you, each week. We combine our own produce with other select local items from our farm market in your weekly ‘bite’. Once a week you’ll enjoy a premium selection of produce that is just the right size for your household. Our program is designed around our peak harvest season and our five convenient and flexible pick-up/delivery options make joining our farm family easy! Becoming a member is also a great way to stay connected to your community; a member picnic, photo contests, inspiring recipes to share, access to our exclusive social media site and more make the season fun!
Get it where it grows! Our family and staff pride ourselves on providing quality, delectable produce. All of the fruits and vegetables we grow on our farm are non-GMO.
