It would be nice if there was an “UberEats” for fresh foods, and healthy nutritious foods were available at a truck stop, or a gas station. Welp, that is our goal with healing food deserts around the earth. Lot’s of talk about the growing of food in outer space, because it would be very interesting to see that happen, but the truth is that our current home here on earth needs our upmost attention. Our efforts and energy have transitioned from using synthetic lighting in a shipping container for the purposes of growing food for restaurants and schools in food deserts, to using natural sunlight in greenhouses as well as our Patent Pending SKU Generation technology using Geo-location for Food Production and Adulteration so that consumers know:
- where their food was grown,
- how it was grown,
- what ingredients were used in the soil and foliar feedings,
- as well as How much energy was used to grow the food.
This is what we call the “carbon fingerprint” of our food. The recipes that we cook with require fresh ingredients of nutritious fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, and nuts. Increasing our soil’s health will increase our soul’s health as we continue to feed or surroundings with all natural ingredients. We want to share that interaction with our earth with as many as possible. From non-fertilized, farm fresh chicken eggs, to Oak Grown Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Blue Oyster, Pearl Oyster and Wine Cap Mushrooms.
We aim to deliver fresh produce, fruits, vegetables, eggs, mushrooms and more to our neighbors in the North Fork Valley using the CSA or Community Supported Agriculture model to supply homes, schools, restaurants, gas stations, truck stops, and eventually grocery stores with fresh foods. In order to make this dream happen, we need help with resources, in equipment, in labor, in finances, in delivery as well as getting the word out to potential food share holders who are willing to pre-purchase shares of crops.
Here is how that works with the social distancing protocols that seem to be shaping our world. We will list our potential produce for sale here on our website, in a check list style order format. Each crop varietal will have a cost associated with each produce, such as an apple will cost $.50 and we will have a limited supply of them usually harvested in September and October. These apples will be for sale now, with a delivery date at the time of harvest. Only 200 will be available.
First come first serve basis, so once a crop is sold out, that is it, and it will not be available until next season, with our goal to increase our ability to produce as our customer base grows. We have already purchased our seeds for this season with heirlooms being our goal to grow. We had plans to offer a discounted version of our products with the trade off in labor, meaning food boxes could be free for those folks who would work in exchange for food. Customers could come and harvest their own foods for a discounted amounts, however we are limiting this option until the world calms down with it’s virtual insanity.
Winter was a great lesson in preparedness. We are just now thawing out in the shade, and have had to thaw out several times this season. Glad spring has sprung.
