Eat With Us

We want to help you feed your family the healthiest food possible. We know that convenience is important to you. We know you want food that is grown sustainably, contains important nutrients for your health, tastes terrific, and is grown by someone you know and trust. If you live locally and would like to purchase vegetables, grains, flour, and beans directly from the farm (Wow!  That’s practically a full diet), you may do so!  We are pleased to announce various pick-up options!

OPTIONS FOR PRODUCE & DRY GOODS:

The following pick-up options are available via a google-based spreadsheet containing the current week’s price list of available products sent out weekly via email on Sunday mornings. Customers should place their order on the spreadsheet by the Wednesday 5 am deadline.  Your order would then be ready for pick-up by Thursday. Please contact us so that we may place you on our mailing list. You will be asked to provide us with an email and a telephone number.  The following pick-up locations are offered via this means:

ON-FARM PICK-UP OPTION

available Thursdays through Sundays:

DSCN4944

Ideally everyone makes an on-farm pick-up at least once.  Connecting to the people and the land who grow your food is crucial in developing the connection to help yourself do what you want to do: eat right!  Upon placement of your first order for on-farm pick-up, you will be required to contact us by phone or email to arrange a pick-up time that is convenient for both parties. Please call/email enough a head of time (a day or so) so as to assure something that works for both parties. This is so that we may meet and so that we can show you what you need to know so that you are self-sufficient when picking-up all future orders. After your first pick-up and orientation, you will then have all the information you need to pick-up your subsequent orders anytime at your convenience between Thursdays and Sundays! The key is to always remember to check both coolers 🙂

ZEN AND VITALITY WITH ZOA PICK-UP OPTION

available Thursdays during open hours:
