A Message to our Customers about COVID-19

Posted 3/28/2020 7:39am by Colleen Quiram.
We have been asked about our plans during these uncertain times. Just like you, our families are being affected by social distancing, our children are home from school preparing for distance learning, and we are looking ahead wondering what the future holds. While we are unsure of what will happen in the coming weeks and months, we are certain that we will continue to grow and produce food for our customers and communities.
 
Agriculture is the backbone of America, and we are thankful to be classified as an Essential Service by the current administration. Currently we are growing on schedule, planting annual flowers for our garden centers and sowing vegetable seeds for planting in our high tunnels and fields. We have every intention of beginning our CSA program as scheduled in mid-June, and we look forward to the season ahead.
 
Every business across the nation is being affected by COVID-19, and we believe the flexibility of our farm to pivot quickly to the changing environment will guarantee our success this season.
 
We can not encourage you enough to support local and buy local! We will get through this together! We ask you to be safe and cautious in your daily life and rest assured, we are here, we will continue to take care of each other, and most importantly we will continue to GROW FOR YOU!

CSA COVID-19 FAQ
 
Are you still planning on doing the CSA?
 
Absolutely YES! We are already planning and planting for the 2020 growing season and will continue to provide the CSA program. Currently there is no evidence of COVID-19 being transmitted through food or food packaging. Source: https://www.usda.gov/coronavirus (3/25/2020) However, we are increasing our requirements of sanitizing equipment and tools, using personal protective equipment such as gloves, and, in an abundance of caution, we may use more bags in our packaging to protect your produce in transport.
 
No matter what happens with COVID-19, we still need to eat and eat healthy!
 
I am picking up my share at my workplace and currently working from home due to COVID-19. What happens if we are not allowed to return to work before the CSA deliveries begin?
 
We have many public drop locations available and will work with you to relocate your share to whichever location is most convenient. Contact Colleen with any dropsite changes.
 
Are you planning on doing any drop offs this year directly to people's homes due to COVID-19?
 
Currently, we anticipate being able to deliver our shares to public drop locations, not requiring home delivery. However, we are evaluating many different delivery options should public drop off not be available.
