This year, we are excited to be partnering with Good Food Farmers Network (GFF). We’re pretty sure that you’ll be excited too! GFF is farmer-owned and specifically seeks to support small-scale and beginning farmers. Common Hands is one of about a dozen farms in the network. It’s a small-scale, grassroots, farmer-powered effort to support local farms and get good food into the hands of more people.
Unlike a traditional CSA, Good Food Farmers offers a few big benefits that we think you’ll enjoy:
Pay by the week: your card gets charged weekly so there’s no large up front payment at the start of the season;
Skip deliveries as needed: you can put your weekly standing order on hold as needed and you won’t be charged, so if you’re going on vacation there’s no need to stress;
Fully customize: GFF sets up a “default” bag each week that changes with the seasons; you can keep the bag as it is (about half GFF members do) or you can fully customize your order;
100% “Good Food”: GFF farms, like Common Hands, use only the best practices when it comes to stewardship of our land, animals, and communities; we share an unwavering commitment to farming without GMO’s, without pesticides, and with the highest degree of environmental stewardship and animal welfare;
Lots of variety: In addition to a weekly supply of veggies, you’ll have access to all sorts of good food direct from all the farms in the network including grassfed meats, pastured eggs, poultry, and pork, organic cheese and yogurt, and more.
We’ll be updating in March with all the pickup details, signup info, and more. In the meantime, we hope your stomach is rumbling for good food in the seasons ahead!
On behalf of Common Hands, and all the GFF farms, thanks for your support of local agriculture and we look forward to seeing you later this year!
