Order by Thursday at 8 pm for Saturday Pick-up

Posted on October 14th, 2020 by Holly Whitesides

Welcome to the Against the Grain Farm Stand where you can pre-order for pick up at either Watauga Country Farmer's Market or at the farm for Saturday, October, 17th.  If you're reading this in an email, you'll see the items that we have to offer this week below.  You can simply click on the yellow button "purchase from the farmstand" to reserve a box, make swaps and add extras to the base box that Harvie will put together for you.  If you're reading this in the Harvie platform, navigate over to the "farm stand" to reserve your box.

The ordering period for Saturday pick-up closes at 8pm on Thursday, October 15th.

If you have any questions about your box or the farm stand process, please reach out to Holly directly by email at or by phone at 828-406-4439.  If you are having any difficulties placing your order or would like to confirm the contents of your box, please do not hesitate to reach out to Holly. 

We still have 2 or 3 spots in our four week extension to the regular CSA shares, with pick up locations at the farm and the High Country Food Hub only.  Sign up through the Harvie platform.

Our reservations for Thanksgiving Turkeys are ongoing, but always sell out early!  Our birds are raised to high welfare standards, with GMO-free verified feed, as well as continuous access to fresh pasture, water and sunshine.  Reserve one with a $25 deposit on our website:

In other farm news, the farm made molasses over the weekend (see photo of Ben skimming above).  The event was much smaller than in past years, as we we cautious of social distancing, but still offered a sweet end cap to our field production season.  You can find our molasses at the farmer's market booth, beginning Saturday, Oct. 24th!
