Winter Hours and Other Changes At The Farm
Our Winter Hours are Thursday to Saturday from 8AM to 6PM.
The weakness of our farm model centers around the lumpiness of customers’ consumption and our production. For example, a customer might love our microgreens and come and buy 5 packs. Then they fail to return for another 6 months, despite the fact that they are big champions of our microgreens. Customers who are loyal to farmers’ markets all year round, visit our store in the winter to buy eggs. We increase egg production and then they stop buying from us in Spring in order to buy from farmers’ markets. These are all free choices, but a subscription for basic food staples would help us manage what to produce.
In a subscription model, customers agree to buy from us on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis and they either pick it up at our farm, or we deliver it to them.
Subscription-based farming is the most environmentally conscious form of local farming because it can reduce and almost eliminate food waste.
We are launching this subscription business this January 15. It will give us perfect intelligence on what to grow for you. If you want Baby Romaine every other week for the rest of your life, we’ll have it for you.
There are two ways to access your subscription. You’ll manage the subscription online. If you live within a 7-mile radius of the farm, we can deliver to you. If you live outside of the 7-mile radius, you can pick up your subscription on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. The subscription can be changed a few days before your order.
Free Delivery is available only for Members.
Membership ties you into the community of the farm. Membership revenue helps the farm support interns, educational programs, and field trips for disadvantaged youth.
