Since our farm is a producer of local food, we feel it’s important to implement some changes in order to prevent the spread of this virus that has changed so many lives. We have been and will continue to pray for the families of the many that have been affected by this crisis. We know that many of you are praying too.
Each year Brandon and I take some time off and close the farm for a few days to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We usually have a trip planned, but long before this outbreak started we decided to focus on developing our land in order to expand the farm. As a result, we were home. That decision turned out to be more of a blessing then we could have imagined. It not only kept us home, but it also gave us time to sit down and talk about what is best for our farm, our family, and our community during this epidemic.
Since there are now confirmed cases locally, we have to be extremely cautious! The decisions we’ve made came about through many prayers and we trust that you guys will understand.
In order to keep in line with CDC guidelines and practice social distancing effective immediately, we will no longer accept cash as a form of payment. Cash does not allow us to maintain 6 feet of distance between us. Making these changes may hurt us financially and those of you who pay in cash, but it’s for all of our safety.
All orders must be placed online through our shop page.
This is in effect until further notice. Your orders will be packaged in a sealed bag and we will be sanitizing and hand washing the whole way through. Please don’t surprised if we show up with a mask and gloves. It is for our protection and yours.
We will still offer both local pick up (where we meet you) and local home delivery but both of these will be without contact. Details will be worked out for local pick up and home deliveries will be left on the porch unless another location is specified.
This should go without saying, and please don’t be offended, but we ask that you please don’t order if you or anyone in your family is ill, has been around anyone who is ill, showing any symptoms of COVID19, or has been confirmed of having this deadly virus. Again, this is for the protection of everyone. We are doing all we can to prevent the spread and we ask that you do the same.
We are committed to keeping clean local food in our community!
In the past 2 weeks, we have received many inquiries from people looking to join our Kith & Kin CSA. With grocery stores limiting hours and items, we understand the need to secure food. So we prayed about this and a decision was made with our sister farm, Bain Home Gardens to open up a limited amount of shares.
We contacted those who inquired to see if we could accommodate their needs. Some we could, others we could not. Even though our farm is still on break, it’s important that we let everyone know about these changes. The CSA starts on April 27th, but after today we cannot take on anymore families for our Spring season.
Farms are essential business so we want you all to know that as long as we deem it’s safe to do so, we will be here for you.
As always, we thank you for trusting us and for supporting our local family farm.
