IFC Distribution is Today! Asparagus Issue!

This is being sent via email to everyone who ordered this cycle.

Today is distribution at our Des Moines area sites (including Pleasant Hill, West Des Moines, Ankeny) as well as Albia, Indianola, and Osceola. Tomorrow is distribution in Ames.

Our alternative pick up time is Saturday from 10:30 am to noon at our Franklin Plaza site. No need to give us a heads up if you want to come Saturday.

If for some reason you need to call, use 515-450-6812.

NOTE: We ran into an issue this cycle with our attempt to offer asparagus. We ordered 80 lbs from Prairie Rose Acres through Farm Table Delivery Service. Turns out cooler temps slowed harvest and we only got 25 lbs.

We were able to substitute asparagus from Maxwell Farms of State Center, but the bed was treated with a product prior to the growing season to control broad leaf weeds.

Rather than assume this was fine, we are going to give folks the option of accepting the substitute product at pickup. It seems like the right thing to do.

Anyway, thanks for your orders. See you later today or Saturday.
