Welcome to the MORNINGSIDE BUYING CLUB
MORNINGSIDE BUYING CLUB began in 1983 as an effort to purchase good
wholesome food in bulk for our family and a few friends and neighbors.
Over 600 families later, we are still sharing purchases with old as
well as new friends.
We are Barb and Jim Joyner. We live our lives, farm our crops and
operate the Morningside Buying Club in rural middle Tennessee. We serve buying club members
within about a 75 mile radius from where we live.
Our children grew up on the farm and in the buying club. Now our
grandchildren and the children of some of our first members are
enjoying and benefiting from the Morningside legacy.
While providing food is the way we make our living, ours is a personal
mission to provide folks with whatever service it takes to help them
along the road to a wholesome and healthy diet. We support
local agriculture and enterprise either directly in the buying club or
indirectly through networking to help members and local enterprises
find one another.
What does Morningside mean?
Wholesome food at fair prices.
By seeking out like-minded suppliers and keeping overhead to a minimum,
we are able to charge a reasonable price for a high quality product

quantities every four weeks instead of every-other-day visits to the grocer.

no inventory, we are able to pass along the savings to you.

businesses. We are personal friends

about supporting them. We hope you'll feel just as good about helping
other families earn a right living.

How does Morningside do it?
The operation of the Morningside Buying Club is much like a co-op.
Every four weeks,
12 times a year, you may buy in bulk or in specified quantities for the
same low prices. . . but without the meetings, work-time requirements,
or investment of a co-op.
