Become a Member & Save Money!


What do you think of when you see the word "membership"? Do you think about having a gym membership, or having a Costco card? Or of something else that requires you to pay a fee to enjoy a service? 

Are you ready to flip that perception upside down? 

At Locally Germinated we call our customers members because you're a lot more than a customer to us. When you buy from our local family farm, you become part of our community.

Membership with Locally Germinated doesn't require a membership fee, or any other recurring fee. It's a membership that pays YOU to be a member!

Every single dollar of your membership goes directly towards purchasing food for your Fresh & Local weekly basket. There are no extra fees required to make a purchase. Even if you don't buy a membership, you can still order & you're still a member!

      How it works

      🍅 Create an account then decide what suits you best - the $500 Farm Champion Membership or the $250 Farm Friend Membership - and put the membership gift card in your cart and proceed to the checkout. At the checkout, the 10% we're giving you as a thank you is automatically applied

      🧄 After you buy a membership, you’ll get an email with the code for your gift card. Please check your spam folder to make sure you get this email. You will input this unique code at the checkout every time you make a purchase, until your credit runs out. If you lose or misplace this code, no worries, we can re-send it to you.

      🥦 You will get an email with a special discount code for free delivery, if you’re a Farm Champion, or for free delivery with a minimum order of $15 if you’re a Farm Friend .

      🍉 If you bought a Farm Champion Membership you’ll get an email every Monday with a special code that will allow you to enter our online farmers’ market one day early, before we open the store to everyone else, so you can make sure to get your favourites before they're are sold out.

      🕛 The deadline to order, for everyone, is Wednesdays at midnight. At checkout you choose home delivery (shipping) or contactless pickup at the farm.

      👨🏼‍🌾 On Thursday we head out into our fields & harvest your order FRESH!

      🥗 On Friday your order is ready for delivery or pickup! 

      🍓 Your membership is valid from the date of purchase, either for 6 months if you're a Farm Friend, or 1 year if you're a Farm Champion. If you spend the whole $250 or $500 before your 6 months or 1 year is up, you still continue to enjoy all the perks for the full length of your membership!

      🍆 When you've spent your $250 or $500 & are ready to invest again, simply start from the beginning. Every single time you buy a membership you'll save 10% at the checkout & your membership extends for another 6 months or 1 year from the date of purchase. There's no limit to the number of times you can benefit from our membership perks.

      🥕 If you decide that membership is not right for you, you can still order week to week & pay as you go. Simply create an account & you'll be notified when our online farmers' market opens up for orders. If you decide later that you want to buy another membership, you can do so at any time.
