Getting Started


Getting started with GOBC is easy!  Below is a brief summary of how our group works. 

 

  
    1. JOIN OUR GROUP:
      There are no membership dues or minimum commitment levels to join. However, membership into GOBC is on a referral basis. In order to be part of our buying club, interested parties must be referred to our group by a current or previous GOBC member.  Serious requests only.  Please do not apply for membership if you do not plan to participate on a fairly regular basis. 

      Members must also have…

      • A valid email address to be added to our email list.  Our e-list is the main form of communication for the group.
      • Access to the internet to be able to use our online ordering system to submit orders.

       

    2. PLACE AN ORDER:
      Upon joining, members will automatically be added to our email list and have access to the Members Area of our website to know when and how to submit orders. Ordering deadlines vary by supplier. Below is a list of our current main vendors.  On average, our members save between 15% – 60% on various products through our suppliers compared to retail prices!

      Azure Standard – organic, all natural foods & products – individual and bulk
      Frontier Natural Products
      – organic, all natural foods, body care, aromatherapy, accessories – individual and bulk
      Mountain Rose Herbs – organic herbs, spices, teas, herbal sundries – individual and bulk
      Wilderness Family Naturals
      – all natural and organic coconut products, raw and health foods – individual and bulk
      KD Cattle Co.
      – 100% grass-fed beef, lamb, pork by quarter, half, or whole
      Old State Farms – organic maple syrup

       

    3. SUBMIT PAYMENT:
      Payment is typically due when members pick up their orders.  There are a few orders when payment is needed ahead of time, but for the most part members do not have to pay until pick up day.

    4. PICK-UP ORDER:
      GOBC is pleased to be a drop location for our main supplier, Azure Standard. Because of this, our group is structured significantly around Azure’s delivery schedule.  Orders are picked up once a month on the day Azure delivers to our two drop locations.  A few vendors (ie: beef orders) require a separate pick up day.
