Supporting Local Farms Since the inception of our home delivery business in1999, we have always focused on purchasing our fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers first. Every week, I contact my farmer friends to find out what they currently have available that I can add to our boxes. If I need to find more produce, I then source it from farms outside our area. As your personal farmer, I really appreciate your dedication to the local farm community. With your box of good purchases this last year, you have blessed several local farm families:
Rents Due Ranch, Skagit Flats Farm, Skagit Harmony Farm, Ralph’s Greenhouse, Motherflight Farms, Hedlund Farms, Blue Heron Farms, Munks Farm, Paul & Janice Madden Orchards, Ponderosa Orchards, Filaree Farms, Bartella Farm, Bunny Lane Fruit, and of course, the Klesick Family Farm.
Helping Local People Another core principle at Klesick Family Farm is to give back to our community. One of the ways we do this is by offering our customers the opportunity to donate a box of good to a local area food bank (Stanwood/Camano, Everett, Marysville, Monroe, Snohomish, Edmonds). For every four boxes donated by our customers, we donate an additional box. This year, with the generous support of our customers, Klesick Family Farm delivered over 750 boxes of good (approximately $18,500 worth of quality organic fruits and vegetables) to local area food banks – this is 300 boxes more than in 2009! There is no way our farm could meet this need without your help. This is one of the most satisfying aspects of our business. I love meeting local needs with local resources! Thank you for partnering with us to meet this local need. If you would like to join us to help provide quality organic produce to local food banks visit the “Neighbor Helping Neighbor” page of our website or call us at 360-652-4663.
Thanks for a great 2010!
Looking forward to next year!
