Harvie helps farms selling through a CSA / farm share model increase retention (+15-30% year-over-year retention) and meet sales growth targets while increasing overall profitability. To accomplish these goals, Harvie focuses on providing a better member experience that includes customized shares, flexible share sizes and flexible weeks. At the same time, Harvie streamlines administration so the customer-friendly features do not drive farmers crazy with logistics.
Harvie is also a marketing and customer service platform, as we provide a customized marketing plan to meet your membership goals and we also handle customer service inquiries in tandem with you.

“I liked the idea of being able to see and edit my baskets contents before pick up day. Customization reduces waste and makes menu planning more efficient.”
“I adore farm-fresh food; however sometimes with a “regular” share you get piles and piles of something you just can’t stand. Harvie lets me tweak my share so food doesn’t go to waste.”
“When you start explaining to people what a CSA or farm share is, normally the first question you get when they figure out the gist of it is, ‘Do you get to pick what goes in your box?’. We’ve always had to say, ‘No, unfortunately not’ – this is why, and this is how it works. Now we have the ability to say, ‘Yeah, you do have a say in what you get and can pick what is in your box and customize it to your likes and dislikes.’ That’s been great! We’ve been able to get some of the customers back that we’ve lost, before not having that option. They tried the CSA, but didn’t like not having the choice of what they get.”
Rise ‘N Shine Farm
Rise ‘N Shine Farm increased average retention year-over-year from 40-45% to 70.5% after using Harvie — an increase of almost 30%! Auto-renewal, custom friendly farm share features and customer support contribute to this increase in retention.
“Our farm was losing customers to aggregators and meal delivery services in Atlanta and I needed to change that trend. I was searching for a solution that included giving my members the option to customize their box and make it easier for more people to join. Harvie filled the need for me. My members love it and it shows in the retention rate. Harvie has an auto renew feature that saves my members the hassle of enrolling every year, which makes marketing much easier.”
“我将非常令人鼓舞ybody to try the warm leads (Harvie marketing lead) campaign. It blew me out of the water. I have people coming back from years ago. I’ve even been getting emails from people saying they are sorry they moved away. I’m happy all the way around. I’ve gotten 188 shares with Harvie’s marketing campaign.”
“On the rare occasion I can’t figure something out, I usually get a response within 1-2 hours. However, if I really need something fixed urgently, I can call and they are on it instantly. I’ve received great support 24-7.”

Many farms give 10-30% more retail value in shares than members pay for. With Harvie’s technology and customized shares, members get what they want and they get retail value. This means that our farms can generate 10-30% more revenue off the same production.

Requirements to be a Harvie Farm

Our proposal will outline how we can help your farm grow sales and profitability while reducing the administrative burden.
Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Harvie is the result of over a decade of working closely with farms to meet their technology needs as well as observation, interviews, and research into the CSA/Farm Share market and the local food system.
In 2006, Simon Huntley started Small Farm Central to serve the technology needs of farmers across the United States and Canada. The initial service was “websites for farms” and grew to include online sales technology and CSA member management and has served over 2000 farms. Harvie was built to address the concerns of Small Farm Central’s farms as they started to lose local food market share to bigger companies capitalizing on the popularity of local food.
