Our Last Delivery of the Season!

We want to thank each and every one of our amazing customers for your dedication to our local food system.  We know we couldn’t do this without you and our incredibly hard working farmers. Our team takes pride in being the link between our farmers and our community. This year has been our best year yet and we only hope to get better with age!
