It seems hard to believe that we moved to a new location, just a month ago – and we have completed two distributions there; it already feels like home. We have windows, easy access, and friendly neighbors, growing room so much potential. The comments from all of you – 100% positive so far so; all in all, the Board is very pleased with our new home.
We listened to what our consumers said they wanted in our last survey and we have added many new products – milk, ice cream, more cheeses, lots more produce, even worm castings, not to mention our many varied meat selections for summer grilling.
We have lots of people looking through the windows, thanks in part to the steady stream of patrons at the barber shop next door. We will have our sign within a month, but in addition we want to make our space warm, inviting, and improve our curb appeal.
So we could use some time and talent from our membership. If you are artistic or handy or just like to do that sort of thing, let us know so that as soon as we get our boxes unpacked we can start to DECORATE! Ideas we have been kicking around – wall and refrigerator art (pictures of producers, farms, logos, products), stenciling, etc, etc….
We also have a wish list which includes outdoor chairs and a small table, a small set of book shelves (for all our extra cookbooks), a couple of bar height stools, refrigerators/freezers to accommodate our ever growing product list, a tree for out front…..
Many thanks to all of you that helped us move and that help us with every distribution. Special thanks to our producers as well who work so hard to deliver good quality products for us all to enjoy.
