What is the Farm to Kitchen Collective, exactly?
The Farm to Kitchen Collective is a small group of volunteers who help facilitate the supply of fresh, locally grown vegetables from small farms into their community. Each week, our local farm partners deliver directly to us. We buy in bulk from them and we portion into shares for you.
How much does it cost and when is pick up?
In an effort to serve as many needs as possible, we have weekly and every other week memberships available for $30. One-time boxes are available for $35 for those who like to pop in without the commitment. Pick up is available from 4-6 in Tomball & Cypress and 4:30-6:30. You will receive the pick up information and contact in your confirmation email.
Are you a Farm, CSA or co-op?
Best question ever.
Honestly, we are a hybrid of sorts. When we started, there was not a Farm Stand or Farmers Market in less than a 25 minute drive. As a group of volunteers, our profit goes back into the community in some way or another. We have donated to farmers, looking for seed money to start, to students and to the local food community.
Can I choose in the box? What if I don't like something?
Each box comes with 6-9 different fruits, vegetables and/ or herbs based on what's available for harvest that week. We buy in bulk so everyone gets the same share and we don't offer a tradeouts. However, farm fresh tastes completly differently than anything you will get at a store. Most of our members find easting Farm Fresh is Best and they can expand their palletes more easily. All of that being said, as we get to know you and your family, if there is something you try that yyou just can't 'do,' let us know and we will work with you!
