In celebration of spring renewal, Farmers to You is running its annual “Gift to Give” program. Would you like a gift certificate for $50 of high quality farm/dairy/fishery/bakery-to-consumer groceries? Each family already in the partnership has been given a $50 gift certificate to pass along to someone else who might be interested in trying it out. In exchange, they ask folks to sign on for 6 weeks if possible, to give it a fair go and see if it is for them.
Here’s how Farmers to You works every week: You set up an account on the Farmers To You website, including payment information. You can then put together a shopping cart, like on any other online store, of groceries to be delivered direct from Vermont-area farms (fresh produce and meat), dairies, cheese makers, bakers, fisherfolk, etc. Farmers to You gathers the food and delivers it to communities around Boston. You can pickup from the Newton site host from 1:30-2:30 on Wednesdays, or use the late pickup option until 9:30pm. If you don’t want an order that week, you can suspend your delivery online, or for longer suspensions, give the main office a call. When you do order, Farmers to You asks that you aim for a $40 minimum.
You can find more details at http://farmerstoyou.com/ or in the recent Boston Globe article. Let Emily Case know if you want one of the Gift to Give $50 gift certificates and she will get it to you! Email Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org.
