Becoming a member of the Field To Fork farm is much different than going to the local grocery store and buying your vegetables. It is a direct partnership between you, the consumer, and our farm. Members pay in advance for a share of the upcoming harvest and are ensured quality local produce, and we the farm, are ensured a consistent market. Members help our farm develop new products and reward us by the direct relationship with our consumers. Produce is harvested direct from our fertile vegetable fields located along the Colorado River, just east of Grand Junction in Palisade, Colorado.
At Field To Fork we offer a "free choice" membership farm stand. You come to the farm and have the option to choose whats in your basket. We offer 10 - 30 week punch pass beginning late March and Ending December. We grow many crops earlier and later in our grow tunnels and harvest produce during all four seasons. Most members join for 15-30 weeks and the punch pass gives a little more flexibility to not feel pressure if they miss a pickup.
This is a limited membership. New members begin pickup in June for the main growing season. Once you are a member you receive the next seasons early bird special, wholesale pricing on case of items like peaches and tomatoes, access to our private Facebook group, weekly recipes and invites to farm potlucks and events with our partners. All members receive weekly emails of what to expect, farm updates and weekly recipes.
Member pickups are open house style. You can come anytime during the pickup hours. As your farmers, we harvest your food all day, then we set it out in a buffet style setting, like your own personal farmers market. Bring your bags or grab an empty basket and fill it up with the weekly harvest. You choose what you put in your basket. Once your basket is full, you are done! We do it all over again the following week. If you don't feel like picking up the following week or have plans to leave town with the 10 week punch pass you are welcome to skip a week.
**Being a member allows you to develop a relationship with the farmers that grow your food and with the soil, air and water with which it’s grown. You are also developing a more intimate relationship with the peculiarities of the farm’s unique growing conditions — which are affected by altitude, weather, climate, etc.
