Please note: The Friend of the Farm program is changing.

Tuesday June 21 will be the last 10% Tuesday until September 6. We're a family farm and unfortunately we can't afford to continue to offer the discount year-round. But we are reviewing the program and would be interested in hearing your thoughts on other benefits you'd like to see.

In the meantime, the other benefits of the FOTF program will remain unchanged through the summer.
