** Good Health Herb members: We are delivering your shares around 7:30am. Shares are in labelled bags. Please be sure to collect your bread and/or plants. Expect shares to stay outside rather than going into the store. Thank you for your flexibility!
** St. Stephens members: I called each of you about location change to Perk Coffee parking lot. Drive thru style.
** Members picking up at our Farm: Shares are bagged, doors are open to bread shelf, all bread is bagged. You can collect your things without touching anything except your bags.
** Thank you in advance for keeping physical distance from others, and for your patience when you may have to wait until another member is finished collecting their goods.
We love you so much. Thank you for being our community --
Hello dear Farm Share members!
We just received word 15 minutes ago that the St. Stephen's Farmers Market has to be cancelled for this Saturday. So, stay tuned! We will have your shares in labeled bags instead of the usual boxes and we don't yet know where/how we can be for you to pick them up. Community needs are changing every 12 hours or so right now and we are doing our best to be nimble and responsive.
In times of heightened anxiety, gratitude is the best medicine for the brain. We are working hard to keep taking that medicine on a regular basis. We are so grateful for the opportunity to be farmers in our community.
We are doing our work - we are growing food for our community. This week is always the start of our busiest time of the year and we are taking our role very seriously right now - in our responsibility to grow food as well as our responsibility to grow and distribute it safely. We have added more disinfecting measures and increased the number of times per day our staff must wash their hands according to CDC guidelines. We are monitoring the health of all of our staff members. We've lent staff members thermometers. Etc.
And suddenly more members of our community have found us and prioritized sourcing their food from us. THANK YOU for already committing to get your food from us. We have always felt deep love and gratitude for our Farm Share members, and this week that gratitude is running deeper than we knew it could. We are being sure to reserve harvest for you, our first priority.
Please enjoy your options! We are harvesting greens and herbs for you this week, plus we have some cabbages available, and plants for your garden. (The cabbages didn't grow as well as we'd like, but that's how farming goes sometimes.)
In health and with deep gratitude -
Janet & Dan and all the rest of the crew (Julie, Jessica, Caity, Ray, Mare, Rachel, Diana, Sylvie, Joren, Elletta, and Beckett)
