This product has a very limited quantity as the local farmer is giving us all he has, which isn't much!
Also note, that we decided to add couple of dollars to the price he quoted to help provide additional support since this is his only current food for sale. He is beginning the process of turning his 10 acres here in Utah to grow food all throughout the year for just our group. As such, we wanted to buy his current supply of local greens (the only food he is growing currently) and then provide a little extra revenue for him to work on crops of salad greens, tomatoes, peppers, melons and other produce for our group throughout the year.
He said the winter salad greens are sweeter and richer than the summer salad greens. We are looking so forward to trying this and supporting him!
He is the same farmer that we got produce last summer from!! But this time, he has dedicated land to support our community.
Please note, he will be packing 3lb bags (he's recycling grocery bags) the night before pickup. He will be cutting and packing and it will NOT be washed to preserve longevity. Produce should not be washed until right before consumption as rinsing/washing speeds up the aging process. As such, you will be getting this right from the ground and will have dirt.
Jared uses organic practices (he is not certified organic as that certification costs a lot of money and dramatically increases the prices) and he uses no pesticides. His winter greens are grown under greenhouse tunnels.
We are excited to have our very own dedicated local, Non-GMO, pesticide-free farmer. Let's show him some love by purchasing his current supply of fresh greens!
Please note, this is OUR LAST OPPORTUNITY THIS YEAR to be able to get this product. After this, he will be prepping his plot for late spring/summer crops that he will begin planting next month. We look forward to buying from him again in late spring!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A PICKUP ONLY ITEM! NO HOME DELIVERY AVAILABLE THIS MONTH.
Notes about pickup:
1. Join a car line and stay in your vehicle. We will come to you to look up your order. Open your trunk and we will load you up. Safe, fast and easy!
2. You can send anyone to pickup your order. It does not need to be you. This allows you to work around any scheduling conflicts you may have, so you don't miss out.
Benefits of buying this product through the local Utah chapter of Food and Meat Co-op:
Bulk, wholesale group pricing for a significant savings over retail.
Grown locally, right here in the heart of the Wasatch front.
Picked, packed and delivered all in the same day. Our farmers pick and pack our produce orders within a few hours of delivery, to ensure the freshest and best local produce experience.
One time offering - because Utah has a shorter growing period, these local bulk produce deals are short lived and a one-time opportunity!
Direct - there is no retail middle-man, which means that your product has only been touched by the butcher last and has not been sitting in store fridges for others to handle before you get it! This brings comfort and assurance that you have a control from nearly the beginning.
