We believe that everyone should have access to fresh, sustainably-grown produce at an affordable price.
We provide our neighbors with several convenient ways to share in the farm’s harvest. We also offer subsidized prices and accept payments through various food and nutrition incentive programs. While we give particular consideration to Franklinton, some of our distribution efforts also extend into the Greater Columbus area. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Produce Basket program
The Produce Basket Program provides a weekly share of fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the summer and winter growing seasons. Those who live, work, or play in Franklinton are eligible to participate and receive the produce delivered to home or work at no additional cost. We offer a subsidized price for a select number of shares and accept payment through SNAP.
Our Summer session runs for 20 weeks from the middle of June through October. It includes salad mix, spinach, kale, collards, raspberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, pepper, carrots, radishes, and more. Registration for the next session starts in March 2018.
Our Winter session runs for 20 weeks from December through the middle of April. It includes salad mix, spinach, kale, winter squash, potatoes, microgreens, carrots, turnips, and more. Registration for the next session starts in October 2017.
Attending farmers markets gives us the opportunity to share our food throughout the Greater Columbus area. It also allows us to spread the word about the farm and how people can get involved in what we are doing in Franklinton. Finally, attending farmers markets helps us to generate financial resources needed to operate the farm and pay people a fair wage.

We double SNAP dollars through the Veggie SNAPS program and accept Senior Farmers Market Coupons and WIC Farmers Market Coupons.
The Mobile Market is an email-based program that provides the capacity to order produce ala carte. A full inventory of available produce is emailed to participants each Thursday and deliveries are made the following afternoon. Those who live, work, or play in Franklinton are eligible to participate and receive orders delivered to home or work at no additional cost. We offer subsidized prices and accept payment through SNAP.
Franklinton Farm Stand
The Franklinton Farm Stand is a quaint retail space with a diverse inventory of fresh fruits and vegetables. It is centrally located along Franklinton’s main residential corridor at 1002 W. Town Street and can be reached from within the neighborhood by foot, bike, or bus. We are currently closed as we reconsider how to best staff and operate the stand.
Many of our neighbors regularly receive food assistance from local churches and other nonprofit organizations. These institutions provide healthy snacks, food boxes, and community meals as ways to address food insecurity in the neighborhood. We provide free produce for use in many of these important community food programs.
