At Woven Roots Farm, the health and well-being of our farm team, customers, and community is our top priority. We understand the concern and uncertainty you are experiencing during this time, and we are committed to being as responsive as possible to this global crisis. In the spirit of transparency, here is more information about our approach and the ways in which we are addressing everyone’s well-being during this uncertain time.
There is no interruption in the safe production and distribution of our nutrient-rich, ecologically grown vegetables. This month we are preparing the fields, seeding crops, and looking forward to a bountiful season.
PRODUCE SAFETY: As a food-based business, food safety and community health have always been of primary importance to us. We are expanding all precautions in producing and harvesting our vegetables including: a farm sanitization and safety plan, ample hand-washing stations, usage of protective gear for vegetable harvest and packing, cleaning and sanitizing of wash sinks, surfaces, totes, bins and transport vehicles, and monitoring staff health.
CSA: Even in this time of uncertainty, the CSA will continue this season. The seeds are being planted, and the soil is warming up. And while we are not sure of all the details, the CSA will be here, ready to supply you with our nutritious food grown by hand in collaboration with the soil. More information will be coming to you soon about the changes to our CSA program.
FARM VISITS: For those who find joy in a visit to the farm, we are still planning on offering on-farm pick-up. There will be revisions to our food packing protocols, the number of members in the area, and possible other precautions. CSA members will be updated directly regarding the changes.
Now, more than ever is the time to be a part of our local food economy. Your dollars will go a long way in saving livelihoods and keeping our community healthy.
We encourage you to remain calm, stay informed, be patient, and practice kindness. We are all in this together!
