Harvie Runs Our CSA
What is Harvie?
Harvie is a software platform that helps CSA farmers meet their customers' needs through a customizable farm share program. When you sign up for a Robinette CSA Share, you will do so under our personal sign up page through the Harvie website.
Each week's share will be based on your preferences. For example: don't like beets? You will never get them in your share! And each week you can further customize your share, as well as order extras if you like.
Harvie gives you more choice and flexibility while still supporting local, seasonal farmers!
How Does It Work?
After signing up for our CSA, Harvie will provide you with a list of all the crops that we grow and you will rate each item from 1 ("I never want it in my share") to 5 ("I love it!").
Based on your preferences and our seasonal harvests each week, Harvie chooses what will go in your share and sends a notification to you about your share.
Each week you will have 48 hours to make changes to your share or order extras if you like.

Why Use Harvie?
We love the CSA model and feel very strongly about it's value to customers, farmers and the land, but we can always do better.
Harvie is better!
With Harvie helping to manage the CSA, you maintain a direct connection to agriculture and the food your family eats, but increase your control and flexibility over each week's share.
By setting your individual vegetable preferences when you sign up, your weekly share is automatically tailored to your personal tastes or dietary requirements. (Plus you can update your preferences anytime!)
We're very excited about this innovation in CSA farming and we know you will be too!
More About Robinette + Harvie
When you sign up for a CSA with Robinette, you set your personal preferences for each vegetable we grow! Each delivery week you can then customize further based on what’s coming out of the fields. This level of customization will help you use everything in the share because you’ll love everything you are getting.
Reduced Food Waste
Because you are getting what you want, you’ll see less food getting tossed or composted which is going to ensure you are getting the biggest bang for your buck.
Purchase Delivery Extras
Order “extra” items we have available to put right in your share with just a few clicks of a button which means less trips to the grocery store and more time in your day.
No need to write checks or remember to make a payment. Choose the payment plan that works best for you and your card will be charged automatically each time your share is delivered.
Vacation planned? No problem. You can easily change the delivery date for your share and schedule two shares on a different week so no more missing out on those veggies you paid for. You can still always send a friend, co-worker, or family member to get your share anytime!
Cooking Suggestion Engine
Fridge full of food but nothing for dinner? We’ve got you covered. Robinette and Harvie provide you with recipe suggestions, cooking tips, storage, and food prep resources so you won’t be scrambling to get dinner on the table.
Customer Resources and Training
Both of the teams at Robinette and Harvie are working to create farm share resources and trainings designed to help you make the best use of your farm share!
The Harvie help desk is available (email@example.com) to help you with you sign up and to manage your share, when necessary!
