Relationship Marketing

Do you know where your food comes from?

We are interested in developing strong connections and open communication with our food community. We want to have strong relationships with those who choose to eat the food that we produce. We want to provide & foster:

Transparency:

Transparency is important to us. We want you to know how your food is produced so that you can make the most informed decision. We are keen to answer any questions you might have. Farm visits are welcome.

Information and Knowledge Exchange:

We are interested in Civic Agriculture as part of information and knowledge exchange. Civic Agriculture is the trend towards locally based agriculture and food production that is tightly linked to a community’s social and economic development. We are happy to share our stories with others. Likewise we want to form friendships and community with those that are interested in getting closer to their food.

Open Communication:

Open communication is important. We invite questions, comments, suggestions and concerns. Furthermore, we will do our best to let you know about any changes to production practices or availability along with other farm news.

Understanding:

Purchasing food from local food producers is different from going to the grocery store. Likewise, selling food directly from the farm to the end-user is different from selling through brokers and middle people. One component of being part of a local food community is understanding seasonal variation. Also, unforseen events can mean changes in production and food availability. We will do our best to keep all of our eaters up to date on the farm happenings.

Community:

Relationship marketing is about community. We encourage you to eat from your local food community. We support an open and inclusive local food system. If you are looking for something that we do not have, or are not satisfied with our food products we will help to direct you towards alternatives.

Please let us know how we may be better communicators and what else we should consider as part of relationship marketing.
