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 (CSA)
The Produce Basket Program provides a weekly share of fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the summer and winter growing seasons. It is modeled as a CSA. Those who live, work, or play in Franklinton are eligible to participate. We offer a subsidized price for a select number of shares (made possible through donations and USDA Grant funding) and accept payment through SNAP.
Our Summer 2019 session runs for 20 weeks starting in the middle of May. Choose from a large or small share for home delivery or pickup at one of our partner locations in Franklinton. Large shares have a $20 value and include an average of 7 items (for example, a large share might include turnips, radishes, lettuce, kale, chard, green onions, and dill). Small shares have a $14 value and include an average of 5 items. Register here: https://forms.gle/Xrd8A2XtV61qHJBo9. Contact email@example.com with any questions.
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.

Franklinton Farm 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.
