The Farm Store is temporarily closed.
The Farm Team staff has made the difficult, but necessary decision to temporarily close our store operations through Wednesday, February 3, 2021 due to contact with COVID-19. The contact was outdoors with appropriate PPE (masks and gloves), but we still want to proceed with caution.
While our team members remain in good health, we want to proactively prioritize the health of our customers, volunteers and staff. Thank you for your understanding and well wishes. We look forward to resuming our abbreviated schedule as soon as it’s safe to do so.
We address health, wealth, and quality of life issues through radical work.
The Farm offers grocery services, farm training, micro-entrepreneurship support, and online education and agritourism events
