Is the produce organic?

The veggies grown on our farm are certified organic and we buy from organic growers. Any not certified items are always disclosed. Meat, cheese, eggs, bread, and other items are locally produced but not always organic. Meat is either organically fed or grass-fed and/or pastured.

What Are Your COVID-19 PROTOCOLS?

We take COVID-19 seriously and our goal is to behave in ways that keep each other safe. We will refer to policies in place by the city or market when appropriate.

CSA members picking up at the delivery truck will be assisted by a truck attendant.  Proper protective equipment is worn and social distancing is requested and practiced.

Home delivery drivers do not enter buildings and food is left in containers provided by the members (like a beach cooler).

Members picking up at the farm are asked to follow the current posted policy around mask use in our buildings.  Depending on the state of affairs in our given community this can change.

Meat:

We work with a number of meat producers. See “Who are your farm partners?” to view a comprehensive list of producers that we work with. We look for small producers using sustainable practices feeding organic or local or gmo-free feed. For example, your 100% grassfed beef may not be certified, but it is raised on lush beautiful pasture. The pork raised here at LotFotL is not certified organic, but fed organic feed and raised on pasture. We choose meat that we would and do feed to our own family.

What happened to the part-time produce share?

The Part-Time Produce program was designed for folks to dip their toes into CSA.  We are asking folks that liked that program to consider a slightly deeper commitment with us and consider coming it at the Pitchfork Level.  This allows for complete flexibility of what items you order from us, making it easy to spend the $40/wk with us.  Our farm is needing to adapt to the changing times. The new programming gives our farm the ability to streamline our programming so we can be efficient, use our technology resources the way they were made to be used, and put our energy into growing your food.
