Farm Tour, Lunch, and Cider Tasting at Linda's Mercantile (Winchester VA)
Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Linda's Mercantile, now in its 6th year, grows fresh produce and fruits. They are also home to five greenhouses they use to get a jump start on tomatoes and growing greens. Onsite is also an apple cider distillery, and their onsite market gives consumers access to home made pasta sauces and apples sauces using the farm's own produce!
At it's simplest, From the Farmer is a service that brings the farmers market to consumers' front door. We source fruits and veggies from local, family farms and deliver them directly to our customers in insulated baskets. Delivery occurs overnight, so that when you wake up your produce is waiting for you (we like to think of ourselves as the veggie milkman). Unlike a traditional CSA, we operate all year long; there's no cost to join, no obligation to receive a delivery, and orders are customizable, too. It's an awesome way to eat seasonal, super fresh, local produce, without giving up total control of your refrigerator! We also offer fresh local bread, and coming soon-- local eggs!
