If you are biking/walking, we will place your order where you can get it after we step back.
We will NOT take payment at delivery, please see below for how payments will work.
Thank you so much for tolerating this process to help keep everyone safe and healthy. We will modify the process as the season progresses and available product dictates the need to do so.
How Do I Order?
For the time being, we are taking orders via email. We are asking those who wish to place orders to participate in our Pre-Paid Farm Credit Program. The program is simple and easy to join. You get better prices and you will help us to limit transactions (and remove the process of passing money back and forth during deliveries).
How Can I Participate?
2020 Pre-Paid Farm Credit Program
We will run the system in $50 increments. In other words, you can purchase a minimum of $50 of farm credit at a time. We will cap the maximum amount of credit at $200 and you can refill your farm credits at any point.
Like the CSA program, this gives you the advantage of not having to pull out money at each delivery. Instead, we will have a ledger with tracking for your current credit balance. Farm credits can be used for ANY farm product the Genuine Faux Farm offers. If you buy farm credits, you can apply them to purchasing meat chickens, vegetables, eggs or any other thing we offer this year.
If you want to send us a check via mail - email us for our farm address. Want to use Paypal? You may send cash to email@example.com We are accepting purchases of credits now and throughout the season.
- The following week will have no deliveries - the farmers are taking a 'week off'
- We will announce our future schedule next week.
- Please note that we are considering our options for Cedar Falls delivery. With Hansen's Outlet construction, that location may not serve well for deliveries. If you have opinions on the matter, please let us know.
Crop and Poultry Report
Oh look! We crossed over the eight inch mark for rainfall in June. When have we heard this before? In 2018, we had about nine inches of rain for the month and we're on pace for that this year as well. The swales (shallow ditches) we have put in thus far are helping us out a bit, but we do wish we could have done more. It's the old litany that if the ground is too wet to work, you don't work the ground. The Buffalo Gnats haven't seemed quite as bad as they have some years, but we've got plenty of sores to prove they are out there.
