What are pronouns and why are they important?
Pronouns are how you refer to someone if you are not using their name. In the sentence, “The children love their toys”, their is the pronoun. Other common pronouns are she/her and he/him. Pronouns are important because they are used to express identity. When you use people’s correct pronouns, you are showing them respect.
Does Fresh Future Farm deliver or sell produce wholesale?
Because of the small size of our current farm space, we focus our efforts on those who reside in the Chicora/Cherokee neighborhood. We do not ship our produce. We do sell our produce wholesale to local BIPOC (Black, indigenous, people of color) food entrepreneurs. COVID-19 has shifted our grocery services to a safer delivery model for Chicora/Cherokee residents.
