Support and $ave

As a Community Supported Agriculture enterprise (see here for more info) our Tractor Seat CSA Club is a sustainable model that benefits its subscribing members (potentially you), the local community, the environment and us as a small-batch, organic producer.  By focusing on direct sales to you, the members, we aim to avoid the need for traditional distribution and marketing. These savings are passed on to our members (20% discount) and a small proportion is allocated to our community group beneficiary - currently The Albany Mountain Bike Club - to help build local trails. For an up-front financial commitment (via credit card), members receive regular deliveries of Oranje Tractor wine at a substantial discount along with other bonuses, over an 12-month period. Plus there's the the added satisfaction gained from supporting the local community.

 

Benefits

The main benefit to you is that you secure limited-edition, small-batch, organically grown wine that is available for retail purchase only in Albany and at a very limited supply for a whopping 20% off those retail prices. It also gives you the opportunity to support us as a local producer.

However, there's more to be had than just fair-priced organically grown wine, like access to special events and discounts for other organic & sustainable products. Tractor Seat Members will be invited to our members-only Pick-up Parties and to Harvest Parties, and can enjoy a free Wine Flight matched with tastings of local produce each year at the Oranje Tractor Tasting Room.

Our mission to tread lightly on the earth, through careful land stewardship, humane treatment of animals in the environment, and fair employment conditions means that there are social as well as environmental outcomes associated with our enterprise that your support facilitates. Win, win, win!

Pick-up parties

French Fouees

No, it's not what it sounds like!  Rather, we will host the following parties to enable local members and others who may be visiting again to collect their wine directly from the Oranje Tractor Farm, and have a drink and bite to eat on us!  If you can't make it, no sweat we'll just deliver your wine through the regular channels.

  • April – Live music and light hors d’oeuvres
  • November - Fouees (puffy French bread pockets - a tradition of the Loire region, filled with rillets or pulled pork, white beans, goats cheese & mushrooms) from the wood-fired oven

Harvest Parties

You will be invited to participate in the various harvest activities, ranging from picking olives and grapes through to selecting citrus fruit for making marmalade.  Stay on to learn some "Granny Skills" if you like, for a small fee to cover consumables such as jars.  Or you could upcycle your own.

Club size

Limited to 300 members.

Updates

All members will be kept well informed throughout the growing season on conditions and what is going on in the vineyard via the Tractor Torque Newsletter
