Mention of some of the folks we are in contact with, and nice mention of our "Buying Club" option.
Some insight as to our role:
With Cherry Capital serving as a distributor, farmers have less paperwork and families have to do less legwork, because Cherry Capital deals directly with the farmers and will deliver to a home. A minimum order is $400, said Evan Smith, senior operations manager.
“One of the issues that we as a community need to address on local food is what is the value of distribution,” Evans said. “Some farmers are distributors, but they would rather just farm, and we need, as a community, to sort out how we want to value distribution. The exciting thing is that the community is having a conversation on how food can be fresh and delivered on a regular basis.”
