Each week, Bounty staff coordinates weekly product availability with farmers and producers and upload the products, prices, photos and descriptions on the website. Each farmer/producer decides on its own price, and Bounty staff operates on a 23-percent margin to cover overhead costs of marketing and distribution. Customers can go online at cnybounty.com before Monday at noon to place an order. Orders are collected from the farms on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning by Bounty staff, taken to the distribution center, orders are packaged and then distributed.
