COVID-19 Pandemic : UPDATE
In light of recent developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to offer you regular updates on the status and protocols of the farm.
We are happy to report that Undertoe Farm is open for business and prepping somewhat normally for the 2020 season. It’s important to note that we have been designated an “Essential Service” by the state of Michigan, and we will continue to serve our community throughout this crisis. We are currently offering On-Farm Pickup at the Farm for Online Orders. We are happy we are equipped to provide single-sourced, certified organic produce safely to Northern Michigan residents as they shelter in place. Shop online here.
Due to this pandemic and personal concerns, we have made a few changes to our business model for 2020. We have more than doubled our CSA, and we have decided not to physically be present at TC or Elk Rapids Farmers Markets. However, we will be taking pre-orders online via a new robust software program to be delivered to these markets and picked up by our customers curbside. More details on that in the coming weeks. We are adapting to changing conditions to support our customers in every way possible. We will continue to listen the health experts and adjust our business model as necessary to serve you.
Since our founding nearly a decade ago, Undertoe Farm has had strict food safety policies in place. These include weekly sanitization schedules, regular water quality testing, regular hand washing, etc. Our supply of fruits and veggies is limited only by the seasons, so no matter what’s happening in the world or our economy, our prices are stable and our food is abundant. As farmers, we are familiar with sudden and dangerous environmental changes such as storms, drought, and blight. So as the COVID-19 pandemic affects our community, we are ready to supply our customers without disruption and adapt to changing conditions as they arise. Please reach out to us anytime if you need assistance. We promise to keep you informed too.
Please know, we welcome the opportunity to serve our community!
