HMEG member Nine Dodge got this arrangement made in effort to increase local food's access in the Midway area. See her announcement:
Ahmed, the owner of the Hamline/Thomas SuperUSA, has agreed to be the drop site for Whole Farm Co-op. He has refrigerator space to store our locally-produced goodness upon delivery until we are able to pick up (hopefully promptly and while also buying other items on occasion)
Whole Farm Co-op is a network of 30+ farms near the Twin Cities. By getting together to do orders, marketing, and delivery, they are able to be small producers who really know & care about what they offer us as consumers. We order online; products include meats, dairy,
groceries, crafts, garden produce in the summer, and more.
Deliveries will be monthly in the 3rd week -- Wednesdays. That means orders need to be in by May 13th for the first delivery on Wednesday, May 20th. Note: You should receive a "store confirmation" within 3 days saying that Whole Farm has your order. Kristin is the name of our
contact person there. She fields emails at firstname.lastname@example.org or calls M,W,F at 320.732.3023
This is all really cool to me because it is recognizing and patronizing a local business as well as supporting local farmers and artisans and the awesome products they offer. It's also really flexible -- you can order every month or not as often, check out different products that interest you.
