Lifting the Food Hub

There are many things that go into getting a food hub up and running.

Our warehouse space is coming together. We've painted and steam-cleaned our office and moved in some office furniture. The phone & internet are up and running. Call us at 434-244-FARM (3276).
Alan is holding down the fort out there - and getting the refrigeration spaces up and running. Lots of things are going on! Roofers, plumbers, refrigeration specialists, movers, etc.

We've also been out to a few farms recently and have begun signing up partners.

Here you'll see Dick Proutt at Down Branch Farm with his herb patch. Dick is a master carpenter and a true craftsman. You can see how beautiful his work is, here with his greenhouse. Dick and his wife have been farming for years for their family but have decided to try farming commercially on a larger scale this year. We are lucky to have him on board!

Gail Hobbs-Page at Caromont Farm had us out for a visit to show us her farm. We started in the dairy and then made our way out to visit the pigs, the milking does, and the baby goats.
