YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A SUBSCRIBER TO SHOP AT FARM TO YOU!  I AM A GROCERY STORE CARRYING ALL LOCAL FOOD PRODUCTS.  I OFFER AN ON-LINE SHOPPING SERVICE TO WHICH CUSTOMERS MAY SUBSCRIBE.

Here's what subscribers are saying about on-line shopping with Farm to You: 

"Farm To You has been an easy way for me to feed my family with locally grown food all year long. I love the convenience of ordering on-line. I can plan meals around the food that is available and it's quick and easy to pick up the groceries every week. I spend much less time in the grocery store looking for good food!"  -- Anne 

Welcome Subscribers!

In addition to being a retail grocer, Farm To You offers on-line shopping!  Customers order what they need each week from an extensive "menu" of local food products.  Customers pick up their order, all packed and ready to go, at Farm To You.  There is no minimum order requirement.

On-line shopping subscribers pay a service fee, and pay for the food they order when they pick it up.  The Winter Market Season (November - April) will begin its sixth year in early November 2014.  It's not too late to join the Summer Market Season.  Subscribe by the month, which entitles you to four orders, which need not be consecutive.  You may subscribe at any time.

Farm To You offers a convenient option for sourcing a wide range of local food products year round.  I source from area producers. Your support of Farm To You is a vote in favor of a local, nutritious, and clean food supply that will help build a local food economy here in Rockbridge County.

The schedule for each order cycle will be posted on this page, along with highlights of what is new, upcoming special events, or important announcements. 

Farm To You is pleased to participate in a special payroll deduction program for employees of Washington & Lee University.  W&L employees may subscribe to the Summer or Winter Market Seasons, and pay both the subscription fee and their food cost by way of payroll deduction.  Click here for FAQs and an Application.  Please contact Anne Remington at aremington@wlu.edu for further information.

Did you know?  A bit of history...

The Winter Market Season is off and running!  Did you know that

• you may subscribe for a full season (24 orders); a half season (12 orders); or by the month (four orders)? 
• you may subscribe any time?
• Farm To You is open year round, and offers on-line shopping year round?

In 2009, my business model was strictly subscription based.  What is now the Farm To You retail shop was intended to be a place to pack and store orders until subscriber pick up day.  If you have ever wondered why on Earth I chose such a location, that is why -- this was never supposed to be retail.

It didn't take long for local residents -- who did not care to subscribe but wanted access to local food year round -- to ask for retail hours.  So, starting with one day a week retail for non-subscribers, the business quickly morphed into a retail local food grocer that also offered on-line shopping!

What's a subscriber?  Simple.  Someone who pays a service fee in order to enjoy the convenience of on-line shopping.  I charge a fee to cover my time and expenses in (i) hosting the on-line menu and keeping it current; (ii) sourcing local food to your order; (iii) packing and invoicing it so it is ready for you pick up; and (iv) rent, utilities and related expenses.

Subscribers enjoy subscriber-only discounts, first choice of food that is in limited supply, and a reduced subscription fee when they renew.

I've added more options this season so that you may subscribe to a full, six-month season (Summer or Winter); a half season (a total of 12 orders at any time during the season); or by the month (a total of four orders at any time during the season).  You choose what's best given your schedule.

In May 2012, I expanded the shop and brought in new refrigeration equipment so as to be able to stock more local products and increase the choices for customers.  Here it is 2014, and I'm wondering if I need even more space!

I am grateful for your continued support, and hope to see you soon!
