Farm to Table Coop Enrollment Open
Had your "five-to-nine for good health" fruits and/or veggies today?
The Sandhills Farm to Table Cooperative is now accepting memberships and produce box subscriptions for the 2013 season through its website, www.SandhillsFarm2Table.com.
"Neighbors Feeding Neighbors" and "We're All in this Together" are the slogans of the SF2T co-op, a grassroots, community-owned enterprise that distributes weekly or biweekly CSA-type produce boxes and value-added items from local farmers.
More than 1,600 households in the Moore, Lee, Richmond and Cumberland county area participate. Members also get a weekly newsletter with recipes, and online store access to bulk produce for canning, jamming and freezing, potlucks and more.
For $25, anyone can become a 2013 member and take advantage of offerings of local treats.
Members can choose to subscribe to the regular produce box, which has an alternative box choice weekly, or the bread box, in which a loaf of fresh-baked bread replaces part of the produce.
The spring/summer season begins April 17-18, and runs until mid-August; in September, the fall season begins an eight-week run.
Members may pick up at one of many gathering sites throughout the Sandhills. Options include weekly (18 weeks) or biweekly (nine weeks) deliveries, family boxes or a subscription for a bread box.
Cost ranges from the $22 per week for a standard box to the $40 family box.
Visit the website www.SandhillsFarm2Table.com for information about membership and the subscription program.
