Why aren't the co-op's online stores open all the time? Food grows in cycles, farmers harvest in cycles, and we order food in cycles. If you find an order cycle closed, check back soon. Or join our email notifications and we will remind you when stores open!
Tell me about Friday pickup? The co-op and many of its producers attend the Bellaire Farmers Market from 8-1 on Fridays from the end of May through the end of October. It is a nice long pickup window of time and has a convenient and contactless drive through service. The online store is open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for Friday pickup. Two different pickup point are offered at the end of the ordering process.
Do you offer memberships? Not yet, but we are working on it! Memberships will provide consumers with voting rights and a way to invest in the future of the co-op.
Tell me about Wednesday CSA Member Pickup? While the co-op expands into the Williamsburg area and the Bellaire Farmers Market is held on Fridays, we have decided to limit the potential confusion of new customers by only referring to the Friday Torch Lake Co-op Store in the 'About Us' page and the 'Home' page. The Wednesday pickup is what got us started last winter, and it is populated by Daybreak Dreamfarm and Providence Farm CSA members, who also form our core consumers. We cherish those who helped launch the co-op, the producers and the customers, and we participate during Wednesday CSA pickups. Anyone can utilize the Wednesday Torch Lake Co-op online store and pickup their order on Wednesday in Bellaire. That store currently opens Saturday at noon and closes Monday at midnight for Wednesday pickup 1:30-2pm.Wednesday CSA Members
