Washtenaw Organic Ordering Open for July 25th Pickup!— Organic Vegetables, Flowers, Eggs, Honey, Meat, Bread, & Local Goodness!


Washtenaw Organic Ordering Open for July 25th Pickup!— Organic Vegetables, Flowers, Eggs, Honey, Meat, Bread, & Local Goodness!

We just opened ordering for pickup or delivery this Saturday, July 25th.

Thank you for supporting our farms! Like other small, local businesses we are working incredibly hard right now under new conditions. Your patience with us is so greatly appreciated as we tune this online ordering system and work hard to pack accurate orders from a lineup of more than 50 items each weekend.

Imagine four of us in a cement floor barn with a line of tables stacked high with crates of what we have just brought in from our fields. Our line of tables and produce was 20 feet long when we started. Now our lineup is something like 50 feet! We walk down the barn aisle with your order invoice, calling out “two Raindance cucumbers!” and trying to fit these foods we have lovingly grown into one package without squishing any of the delicious goodness inside. As we’ve added items like berries and tomatoes, we have been challenged!

We’re sending all of this organic goodness off to you with love, hoping that it nourishes you and your people. Thanks for being part of a stronger, safer local food system!

Sending hope and peace for the week ahead,
Kristen from Raindance
