Dear customers and stakeholders,
In our history, we have never suspended service. This is an unprecedented moment in history. We take our commitment to feeding the community very seriously. The community’s health takes priority over food production at this time.
We are saddened to suspend service due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is our privilege to supply healthy and nutritious foods in a safe and sustainable manner, that being said it is our civic duty as Hoosier Farmers to suspend our service for a minimum of 14 days. During this time we will be cleaning all of our facilities.
The situation with Covid-19 is evolving fast. We have been taking every possible action to protect ourselves and our customers. After the 14-day period, we will release an update about our next steps. Please take every possible precaution in your own lives to minimize the spread and impact of this virus.
This, along with the fact that the majority of our customers have suspended service or canceled orders, means the continued operation of the facility for production, at this time, is not viable.
During this time (March 21st – April 4th) we will be re-building our business model to come back stronger than before.
The surge in home delivery is exciting and could be a great market for us. For home delivery, we have been working with Market Wagon and Indy Community Food Co-op. In the coming weeks, we will be expanding these partnerships.
We sold on Market Wagon and Indy Community Food Co-op this week, to release the product we currently had, and had our best sales to date with them. We look forward to supplying again in the near future! Stick with us as we ensure the safety of our fellow Hoosiers.
Please keep a lookout for updates from us about this fast-evolving situation.
Please keep us in the loop with your business and any changes you are making.
We will be donating our remaining produce to Second Helpings. (or any other food rescue plan that we see can get our product to those that need it)
While operations are suspended we will be doing a deep clean and sterilization of all our equipment and facility.
During this shutdown time, we will still have costs for the cleaning and upkeep of the physical farm facility. This being said we humbly ask that if at this time you have the ability to extend a helping hand in this time of transition, it would be greatly appreciated. We fully intend to serve the needs of our communities to the best of our abilities, and that means taking this time of rest and wellness. Together we will stay strong!

Help grow our community one seed at a time.
