We continue to explore how we might more efficiently meet the food needs of our customers. For example, if you're interested in leafy head lettuce on a regular basis, would you consider setting up a standing order for a couple of heads each week during the growing season?
|These little plants grow to become tasty heads of leaf lettuce.|
The concept could work for all the vegetables we might grow - from the first peas of summer to the luscious heirloom tomatoes to the fall crops of potatoes, squash and pumpkins. Would you have an interest in helping us plan what to grow this summer based on what you would buy? It's a bit like a CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture)
...from Wikipedia: Community-Supported Agriculture (sometimes known as community-shared agriculture) is an alternative, locally-based economic model of agriculture and food distribution.
Would our concept of growing produce for specific customers provide a stable base of support for our efforts while giving us a clearer picture of how much to plant knowing we have a market for that produce?
Would you be interested in a weekly box of produce, based on what's in season? Would you pay up front to support this effort?
I'm counting on hearing from you - potential customers - to let us know what you're looking for. Feel free to comment below. (Please note that all comments are reviewed by us before they're published on the blog so your comments needn't be published.) I hope to hear from you soon!
