Our online store is always open and we schedule pickups and deliveries on Wednesdays and Fridays year-round. To order: click on shop and choose which day you would like to order for, order the items you would like, then choose the location you would like to pickup at or get delivered to. There is no membership fee for shoppers! Producers then gather beforehand to pack your bag together. Each order cycle ends the day before you pickup so that our producers have time to harvest, organize, and package your items.

Wait, so when do I need to order again? To order your groceries for Friday pickup or delivery you must order by Wednesday at midnight. To order groceries for Wednesday pickup or delivery you must order by Monday at midnight.

Why aren't the co-op's order cycles open all the time? Just as food grows in cycles, farmers harvest in cycles, so we order food in cycles. Our store is open all week, but we need the day before you pickup to harvest, organize and pack your order, so only one cycle is open during that time. Join our newsletter mailing list below and we will remind you weekly!

Do you need to be a member to shop the co-op? No, we are a producer co-op. There are no membership fees or minimum purchase needed to shop the co-op.

Where are you located? Other than our pickup locations listed below, we do not have a physical store, so please use our online farmers market store.

Can I pay in some fashion other than credit card? Right now online payments are our preferred method, but please call or text us at 231.676.3186 and we can make arrangements.

What if I placed an order for Friday but meant to order for Wednesday, or vice versa? Please contact us at 231.676.3186, we are here to help!

Where do I choose my pickup day? It's the first thing you do to shop in our store. If multiple order cycles are open it is a red pull down menu in the top right corner. If it's blue there is just the one cycle open then, or you've already chosen the day. At checkout is where you choose the actual location of your pickup or choose delivery.

What if I chose the wrong pickup location? Contact us, we are here to help! 231.676.3186

What if I can't make the pickup? After hours pickups and deliveries are available! Contact us at 231.676.3186 to arrange.
