Happy Holidays!

During the holiday season, the FPP team turns our thoughts to all of you who have made our progress possible. We have been blessed with incredible customers and amazing farmers. Thank you so kindly for your support and best wishes to you and your loved ones.

Our Farmers and Front Porch Pickings will be taking the week of Christmas off this year. However, we will be delivering the week of New Years. During the New Year’s week all deliveries will be made on Wednesday. If you have a Thursday deliviery schedule you will receive your box one day early. If you have any questions, please let us know.

We wish you all the happiest of holidays,

Special Spring Treat in December!

‘Tis the season for beets, cauliflower, carrots, strawberries, and other winter greens. Over the last two weeks we have enjoyed the first harvest of some of our favorite produce. This week we have a special spring treat! We will be enjoying potato fingerlings from Blue Sky Farm in Hastings, FL. Due to the growing concern to keep hard working families gainfully employed throughout the year, the owners at Blue Sky have created a “garden” filled with a variety of seasonal crops. Farming potatoes in the fall can be tricky due to the weather and has higher potential for crop failure. But taking this chance helps keep folks employed and connects the farm with the local residents year-round.  Now that’s what we call sustainable!
