147-What’s Up at Five Feline Farm?

We cover a lot of topics on today’s podcast.

First, a huge shout out and thank you to everyone who placed orders this weekend. Several of you took advantage of the new pickup boxes Friday afternoon, we did delivery on Saturday morning and even mailed out a few orders. We are so grateful for our customers!

As you might expect, we are continuing to shift and grow. The Friday pickup, Saturday delivery and shipping are so much fun for us and it appears quite convenient for all of you.

We are adding more products to our online Mercantile, so make sure you check back there frequently.

The muffin club is growing in membership. If you love delicious, tender English muffins and are in the Charleston, IL area, check out our muffin club. You will get advance notice when we are going to feature these.

Progress continues in building our online course offering. You can add your name to the waiting list here.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

P.S. Facebook and Instagram seem to be downplaying our posts. Please share our email signup page with your friends who might be interested in what we do. Thanks all.

146-Small Businesses Must Be Flexible

Wow! There is so much going on here at Five Feline Farm. This episode is packed full of updates and information.

We are transitioning to all pickup, shipping and delivery beginning November 6 and 7, 2020. You can order any of the products we normally carry in our physical store and choose how your delivery method from these easy options:

  1. Pickup on Fridays between 12:00 PM and 4:00 PM.
  2. Free Delivery within 10 miles of the Farm on Saturday mornings.
  3. Mail for orders over $4.99 in the U.S. (Sorry, no food products by mail.)

Just go to our online Mercantile to order.

But that’s not all the news.

On this episode we also introduce the Five Feline Farm English Muffin Fan Club. Our fresh, home-made English Muffins are so popular, we are starting a notification list when these are offered. If you are local or will be in the area, join this special list and you will get a “heads up” when English Muffins will be on the menu. Never miss out again! Just click that link above and you are in the club!

But wait, there’s more!

We continue development of our exclusive online Five Feline Farm School classes. If you are interested in learning more about how we do what we do, you will need to be on this list. Click here to be notified of updates.

Until next time,

144-Fall in Full Swing

We are into late October now and the garden season is changing. Frost and freezing weather forced us to harvest all remaining summer produce, but many other things are in season.

Garlic and perennial onions are now in the ground, persimmons and black walnuts are plentiful.

Our attention is turning to planning for winter and beyond. One thing we are working on how we will share what we have learned about starting our business. If you are interested in beginning your own, let us know. More information will be coming over the next few weeks, so stay tuned.

Congratulations to our contest winners!

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines
