ABOUT AMERICA'S ORIGINAL FARM-TO-FORK CORRIDOR; SINCE 1565

The farmlands that extend inland from St. Augustine channel American history. Timucuan farms sustained the Ancient City. “Farm-to-table” endowed Flagler Era hospitality. Now the nonprofit St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop Alliance is helping define this rural corridor for family visits. St. Johns County has proclaimed the corridor "critical to the survivl of local agricultural communities."  The extension office and the Putnam-St. Johns County Farm Bureau are on board.

Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam at a recent Chamber of Commerce breakfast at Blue Sky Farms praised what the corridor could accomplish.  “To see this county come together with an agritourism corridor is very exciting. . . it creates a whole new revenue stream potential. For society, it creates the opportunity to bring your kids and grandkids out here to see how all of this happened and have some good, old fashioned family fun.”

That’s the opportunity the Alliance has taken up: to strengthen rural life by introducing farm visits and by supporting off-farm activities of a compatible kind, like the Rype & Readi Farm-to-Fork Brunch.  Like it?  We'll do it again!

 Where before there were only individual farms and isolated activities, the Farm-to-Fork Corridor is becoming a defining wherewithal, an umbrella collection of things to see, do and enjoy.

 Join your friends and family at Rype & Readi and experience a joyful family day and culinary experience!  Wines will be Chilean & American.  The fellowship will be world-class!

Rype & Readi

Rype & Readi is a 22-acre farm-to-fork marketplace offering food, fun, and a fresh source for premium, local farm fare at an affordable price. Creating a community of related agribusinesses, our products are grown right here at home: in Rype & Readi gardens and at neighboring farms. More than a market, Rype & Readi is a family-friendly St. Johns County destination for groups, chefs, farmers, and people that just love to eat local foods. Stop by the Rype & Readi Farm Market today – there’s always something to see, do, and taste!

Our premium fair includes fresh organic produce including garden vegetables: hydroponic lettuce & herbs, mushrooms, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, peaches, and more. Working with local neighboring farms, we offer an expanded line of products and provide a convenient market place to find local favorites with ingredients to enhance them.

 

  • The Elkton Farm hosts a creamery where raw local milk, cheese, yogurt are made as well as hosting farm feast events, field trips and picnics.

 

  • The Golf Bistro at St. John’s Golf Club is a true farm to fork experience. It is the base of our cooking classes and it also available for special events.

 

  • The Downtown Farm Market offers fresh, seasonal, delicious and healthy offerings to a convienant downtown location.

 

Our Elkton Farm is set up to accommodate school groups (teachers, please ask about our lesson plans and field trips), cooking classes, farm feasts, catered events, private gatherings, and even a petting zoo.

Partnering with some of the best chefs, restaurateurs, farmers, and agricultural groups in our area, let us know what you think and what farm fare you’d like to see at Rype & Readi. And please support the other local farms and restaurants in St. Johns County. Together, we can make St. Johns County a farm-to-fork leader in premium, quality food and healthy living.
