A special addition to our share will be two jars of locally-grown, lacto-fermented veggies from a local business called The Brinery ( The founder, David Klingenberger (Tantre intern 2001), started fermenting vegetables over 10 years ago at the turn of the century, while working at Tantre Farm. This is a great share to split with other friends, coworkers, or family members!

Payment Methods:

Reminder: All payments should be finalized at least the week BEFORE you pick up your box.

1. CREDIT CARD payments (online transaction, so you pay a small 3% fee)–If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can still use your credit card as a guest. Make a payment using a credit card without a Paypal account.
2. CHECK payments (no additional fees) If you would like to use a CHECK, you will receive a Confirmation/Invoice email after sign up. Then you can send a check written out to TANTRE FARM within 7 days. Please be sure to get your check in the mail as soon as possible, so we do not have to keep sending Payment Requests, which take extra time and effort on a busy farm. If you are writing the check, and your name is not listed on the share sign up (especially if you have a different last name than your spouse), please refer to your Primary Contact’s name.
3. CASH payments (no additional fees) –If you are paying with CASH, please bring it to the Ann Arbor or Chelsea Farmers Market or Tantre Farm in a LABELED ENVELOPE with your email invoice inside. Let us know if this is your intention when you register, so we know when we will receive your payment. Please check out with the By Check option for this, and then instead of sending checks, just arrange for a Cash delivery.
4. VENMO (no additional fees)– We now have the Venmo app, so for those of you with that app, please send payments to @Deb-Lentz. Please make sure that you write THANKSGIVING CSA and the Primary Contact’s name in the memo area, if being paid by someone else. Some folks need the last four digits of the cell number to send for the first time, so that is 6748. Please check out with the By Check option for this, and then instead of sending checks, you make the Venmo payment immediately.
