We have been in business for 5 years but have been doing home delivery for over 10 years.

We have 13 employees, this includes office staff, packers and delivery drivers.

We will be successful in Frederick County because we are a part of the agricultural community ourselves and we support other local farmers.  Our business allows our farmers to have a year round income stream because we run our home delivery business all year.  We the move over to supporting a more local and healthy living lifestyle our service makes this new food/living model even more convenient for those who are too busy to get to local farmers markets and because we handle all the logistics it also allows the farmers products to reach a further outlying area than just the surrounding neighborhood.  We are a family owned business and because of our small size you can reach the owners on any given day by either phone or email.

We do support the local community outreach, we deliver monthly to Martha’s Table in DC.  We also donate goods to the soup kitchen in downtown Frederick.  We are actively involved in our church Frederick Church of the Brethren and have been very involved in the Picnic in the Park function held in August in Baker Park.

We are most proud of the company we have built in just five short years, now delivering to just around 1000 homes per week and doing it debt free.  We have a fine team of employees that really cares about what we are doing here and takes great pride in the products we bring in.  We love what we do and it shows.
