How does our Immune Booster CSA work?

Are you doing all you can to strengthen your immune system with nutrient-dense foods and with prebiotics and probiotics? Several local farmers and food artisans have banded together to create an Immune Booster share box for $82 for those of you, who are looking to supplement your supplies with fresh produce for this coming Saturday on April 4 with registration open until April 1 at midnight or until we run out of shares.

We are so appreciative to be combining our efforts with our friends and partners from last week with tangy Sauerkraut and Tempeh from the Brinery, the prebiotics and probiotics of Multigrain Sourdough Bread from Raterman Bread, nutrient-dense Pea Shoots or Sunflower Shoots from Garden Works Organic Farm, along with vitamin-rich Carrots and Potatoes from Tantre Farm, nutrient-dense Greens (Mixed Salad Greens, Swiss Chard) from Goetz Farm, crunchy Granola from Harvest Kitchen, Mozarrella Cheese from Zingerman’s Creamery, Kohlrabi Salad from Ginger Deli, and vitamin-packed Apples from Kapnick Orchards. Hope you are able to come and collect a share for yourself and a friend, neighbor, or family member, so that you continue to stay healthy and strong, show kindness and compassion, and practice patience and understanding during these difficult times.

We have the following locations for pick up on Saturday, April 4:

Washtenaw Food Hub (9 AM – 12 PM) in Ann Arbor

RoosRoast Coffee-Rosewood lawn (9 AM – 1 PM) in Ann Arbor

Pure Pastures (9 AM – 12 PM) in Plymouth

Agricole Farm Stop (9 AM – 4 PM) in Chelsea

Tantre Farm (2 PM – 5 PM) in Chelsea.

These shares will be available for pick up in boxes or crates, so no buffet style choices for anyone this time. Several pick up locations will be outside, and we will ask everyone to practice safe, social distancing.  We will also have a volunteer or staff member at every site location, who will be checking off your name on the clipboard, so no shared use of pens or pencils. Everyone will receive an electronic newsletter on Friday evening describing how to use and store each item along with recipes.  No paper newsletters will be available at this crazy time.  A Pick Up Reminder will also arrive by email on Friday at 9 PM describing your pick up location and protocol in greater detail.  Please register by midnight on Wednesday, April 1, so we have time to assemble your share.

Once again we are offering online registrations, so please refer to the following payment options.

  1. Credit card payments (online transaction, so you pay a small 3% fee in addition to the regular fee)–If you are splitting a share, please make only one credit card payment.
  2. Check payments (no online fee)– If you would like to use a check, you will receive an invoice response in your email after registering. Within a few days of registration, please send a check (or checks, if you are splitting a share) written out to “Tantre Farm” to our mailing address for the balance due listed on the invoice. IF YOU ARE SPLITTING A SHARE, PLEASE INCLUDE BOTH CHECKS IN THE SAME ENVELOPE. PLEASE LABEL YOUR PRIMARY CONTACT PERSON’S NAME ON YOUR CHECK MEMO AREA!
  3. VENMO – We now have the Venmo app, so for those of you with that, please send payments to @Deb-Lentz. Please make sure that your full name or at least the Primary Contact’s name is somewhere on your payment. Some folks need the last for digits of the cell number to send for the first time, so that is 6748.
