CSA shares: For several years our customers have asked if we could make a way for weekly locally-grown produce to be delivered to a central location throughout the harvest season. They want chemical-free fruits and vegetables which they know will be freshly picked and highly nutritious. This year we can finally say “Yes” to their requests! We are now offering CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares to folks in Northern Iowa through our farm. Now is the time to purchase your shares since we only have a limited number of shares available for 2015. We are accepting the regular forms of payments for shares along with EBT (food assistance SNAP cards) for those who want to have that choice. Please click on the CSA link at the top of this page for more information.
Are you one who likes to choose your own food instead of getting a set amount of various vegetables each week? Punch cards might be for you then! When you purchase a punch card, you are contracting with us to raise your vegetables and fruits for you. You can then choose which items you want at the farmers market or from our farm whenever you want during the spring, summer, and fall months. (Please give us 24 hours notice if buying directly from our farm since we are busy with our planting and harvesting.)
You can now purchase punch cards to be used at our booth when the North Iowa Farmers Market is in session or they can be used at our farm during the normal harvest season. You may purchase the cards by phone at 641-423-0030 between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm if using a credit card. (We cannot accept EBT cards at this time for the punch card option.) If you prefer to pay with check, please mail it and your mailing address to North Iowa Berries and More, 19343 C 220th Street, Mason City, IA 50401. We will then mail you the punch cards once your check has cleared. For more information, click on the Punch Card link at the top of this page.
We will again be at the North Iowa Farmers Market in Mason City on Tuesdays and Fridays from the middle of May through October. Just look for the green tents with the “North Iowa Berries” sign. Be prepared to find a vast display of various fruits, vegetables, jams, and baked goods on our tables. Our produce is freshly picked and is grown with chemical free, organic practices. Prices are comparable or even lower than those found in our local grocery stores. Why buy produce that has sat on the shelf for days when you can have freshly picked produce from our local farm? Discover the difference in taste and nutrition for yourself!
If you desire to buy a large amount of certain fruits or vegetables, please make sure you call us in advance of the market so that we have enough for you to purchase. You can reach us at 641-423-0030. Please ask for Jesse, Becky, Jennifer, or Janette when making special orders.
We will be accepting WIC, EBT, credit cards, checks, and cash at the market.
Our daughter, Janette, will also be at market with her special paba-free and sulfate-free lotions, soaps, sugar scrubs, and lip balms. Customers love her natural products. She also makes rugs of various colors and dimensions which our customers clamor for. Be sure to stop by her tent which is next to ours with “A Daughter’s Handiwork” sign.
