COVID 19 UPDATES FROM THE FARM

Everyone’s health and safety is important to us and we want to continue to provide the community with safe, nutritious, healthy food.  Being a farm and working with food, we have strict hygiene  rules in place for both personal and health code reasons.

These have been elevated even further.

We want to provide safe food from the farm and get it directly to you without anyone else involved. Farm direct is safest.

Our CSA, farm stands  and farmers markets are operating with modifications.

We thank you for understanding and take care of each other.

Being a member has made my husband and me eat more vegetables. I like trying new vegetables that I would not normally buy if I saw them in the grocery store. The recipe blog and Vegisodes are really helpful. I like knowing that we are supporting something local and helping the environment by eating locally grown, in season vegetables.

My family has been a member of the CSA for a few years now. When we first started I was intimidated by all the veggies I didn’t know. However your website is amazing for identifying veggies and getting ideas for recipes. You have helped me learn how to eat healthy and in season, and in turn teach my family.  

Angela

Everyone at Farmer Dave’s is dedicated to excellent customer service too. I have always had wonderful interactions with everyone on the farm. Thank you for all that you do.

We eat better year round, learn new ways to prepare and preserve healthy food, support our environment and community and enjoy a fun treasure hunt at every pick up with staff to answer questions.
