Elm Street Gardens has always been concerned with growing good food as well as working on efforts to serve the community. New managers, Josh and Jessica, are doing a terrific job of growing that good food and plenty of it! This good food (which is certified organic) has been sold mainly in two Atlanta markets as well as a CSA or Farm Box Program offered locally.
We have recently resolved to make this good food more readily available to our local community by offering on-farm sales on a regular basis to those local folks who are interested. Customers won’t have to sign up or pay in advance as they would if we were continuing with the Farm Box model. Anyone may come to the farm during our open hours and buy the fruit and produce of your choice. We plan to be open on Fridays and Tuesdays from 3 to 5pm. Be sure to check Elm Street Gardens Facebook page on Thursdays to see what we will have available on Fridays. Tuesday's market hours are planned to run June - October.
Elm Street Gardens feels very much a part of the Hancock community and we hope to have this growing operation become more and more a part of that community. We hope this new sales model is successful for all and works for the community as well as Elm Street Gardens.
