Special Considerations

  • You pay at time of delivery (tips for driver are appreciated). Home delivery while you’re at work is just a matter of remembering to set out your cooler with your payment and during warmer months with a freezer pack inside.
  • Every delivery is different, even if that means a different Heirloom sweet
    corn two deliveries in a row. Quantity fluctuates with nature ~ more in
    times of plenty, a little less in lean times. Luckily we have a good working
    relationship with over one hundred central Indiana farmers, plus more within
    250 miles. We pay fair prices for our purchases! We even have farmers
    planting our own “Kids in Bloom” Heirloom seeds to purchase the crop for our
    members each year.
  • By joining our group you are directly supporting your local food chain of
    sustainable growers. You position yourself one step away from your food
    provider while carving thousands of miles off of your carbon foot print.
  • Vegetarians and Members with allergies must alert us to their needs so we can respect them. Otherwise, members receive what our farmers have to sell.
