This Week’s Menu and Info

Hi Farm Friends,

We hope this note finds you healthy, safe and not stir crazy.  Thank you again for your support of all of our farms!

Now, I must broach a subject I was hoping I would never have to ever in my life.  On a personal note, I am one who has always despised fees.  Extra fees of any kind.  When you buy tickets to a show or concert, you pay $85 for the ticket and $25 in fees.  What the heck are they?  There’s seldom an explanation.  Ok, let me just yank the band aid off.  We really need to add on a packing fee to our orders.  You have no idea how difficult and time consuming it is.  Vicky and I just can’t do it ourselves anymore.  We have had to hire a few farm hands.  Unfortunately they wont work for free, and I even offered a bagel break!  Plus we will be installing an ordering system that will, hopefully, improve the ordering process for all of us. Until we get the system up and running, Vicky has a request:  When ordering if you could type the vendor and then under the vendor list what you would like from them and then on to the next.  Many have been doing that, it makes the process a bit easier for her. Jeez, what a complainer. So for pick ups there will be an added $5 packing fee to your total.  For delivery you will see the $5 delivery fee plus the $5 packing fee.  I have to stop saying the F-word now, it makes me queasy.

Even bigger news,,…maybe… with the Easter Holiday on Sunday,there will be no pick ups or deliveries on Easter Sunday.  This doesn’t mean there will be a zip code rule for Saturday, but it does mean that we will have to cap orders at a certain number this week.  Get your orders in ASAP.  You may want to prepare for later deliveries on Saturday.  Please don’t sic the dog on me if it’s passed sundown when I show up.

Remember to bring bags or old Amazon boxes(really any boxes will do, I just figured you probably had numerous swoosh boxes at this point) for pick up.  Pick up Saturday 3-8.  Delivery Saturday from 1-?.

Stay safe,
Vicky and Steve
