Unique Payment System
 
Customers create an account on our website with an opening balance of $50. This balance is used to make purchases from the online farm store. When your balance is running low, you add to it in increments of $50. There are no large upfront costs, just maintain a positive balance. All payments are made by check made out to Goldfinch Gardens or using Dwolla, a third party bank transfer.  When we receive your payment, we will update your balance online.  Credit in your account rolls over from season to season.  

Annual membership/administrative fee is $10.
 
Please leave check in deposit box at pick-up or mail payments to Goldfinch Gardens, 77 Paw Paw Hill Rd. Burnsville NC, 28714.  

If you are unsatisfied for any reason, we will do what we can to correct the problem and if requested, we will promptly refund the balance of your account.
 
We do ask that you order at least once per 6 month period to keep your account active and that each order be at least 3 items. (the 3 item minimum doesn't apply during the lean winter months)
 
Pick-up Details  (see photo guide below)
 
Pick up at your convenience at the Ten Thousand Things Food Co-op, Located on Hwy 80S just south of Seven Mile Ridge Rd. 
You can pick-up at anytime after that 5 on Friday evening.  The "cooler" has a heater as well so in the winter months, your produce will still be kept happy. We leave the produce in the coolers until the following week when we clean up.  Orders will hold just fine until Sunday, or even Monday.  
 
If you ordered tomatoes,  look for them on the table right in paper bags labelled with your name.
