So, What Will Happen to All Those Veggies?

So, what will happen to all those veggies, you ask? Well, shares will be sold through CSA (Community Supported Agrigulture) and our CSA customers will have the choice of having their certified organic vegetables delivered to them OR they may pick up their produce here on the farm.
However, we are adding another element ... a beautiful, well-built, take us serious, produce stand. We decided to add the produce stand so that more families will have access to high quality, healthy food at affordable prices.
Built by Brandon, Doug put skids under it and arranged to have a tow truck company come out and move it. Why didn't we build it on the site? Oh, because we thought we should move it away from the road in the winter, so people wouldn't expect it to be open. But then, it ended up being too heavy to be portable. So ...
Wa La! Isn't it cute? After all that hard work, it looks like this produce stand has been there for years! The idea is for it to be as self-servicing as possible. When we're open, people will be able to drive up, park in front of it, look in through the front opening. If they see something that they want, they can step inside, pack up their produce, weigh it, and pay for it all through an honor system.

We still have some more finish work to do on it, i.e. sealing it up, painting, laying flooring, decorating, etc. ... yay for winter!

We'll announce in the spring dates and hours of operation.

Oh, don't you just love it when dreams (goals) come true!

So much for taking a winter break! LOL
