We appreciate everyones need for healthy and delicious food right now, people are cooking now more than ever. On our end we are doing our best to get things growing so we can feed you delicious, unusual, and inspiring vegetables to keep things fun and exciting in your kitchens. As a small farm that sells directly to the people who eat our food, we recognize our responsibility to provide food in a safe and healthy manner, this has always been our concern. With the current pandemic situation, we have raised the bar even more. We have spent hours considering every step of our extremely short food chain. As the current conditions evolve we are having to stay very fluid. So below is our current selling situation for 2020, please check back as things may change throughout this season.
We have advocated for walk in markets, as it seems so much safer than a grocery store and allows everyone access to the market, also it helps the farmer, as we can safely help a larger group of customers, than in a drive thru situation. If a walk in market does not fit your needs, SOJ has a drive thru option. We are encouraging people to pre-order larger amounts at one time and from multiple vendors at least for the next few months, so that the entire group of food & farm vendors can find it worthwhile to come to market under all the current protocols. Personally we believe being outdoors is safe, as long as everyone works together to follow the rules.
