125-Finding Our Business Sweet Spot

As a business, Five Feline Farm is always working to improve and expand. Sometimes in that effort, we find ourselves stretched beyond what we can manage.

This episode shares some of our thoughts about what we have tried to do and how we are making changes to remain true to ourselves.

Don’t forget to monitor our social media feeds (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for up to date information on what we have available at the Mercantile and 18th Street Farmer’s Market. We will be re-joining the Farmer’s Market this Saturday, June 6, 2020.

On Fridays, we will be open at the Farm, either outside or inside the Mercantile from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

A huge shout out and thank you to everyone who is sticking by us in these times of change.

Until next time…..

123-The Garden Report

It feels like Spring is moving into Summer as the tiny garden seeds begin to grow. We have almost all of the garden planted and are dreaming of more garden beds.

This episode finds us talking through a few updates and lessons learned as well as our next step with the garden. (Hint: fresh cut herbs.)

So sit back and enjoy.

Until next time…

122-This Week at The Farm

As we move past Mother’s Day and into our farmer’s market season there are many challenges to overcome.

On this episode you will hear us discuss recent challenges from accessing high quality flour to managing a late spring freeze to preparing for our online ordering system for the farmer’s market.

To order online go to our Mercantile page. You have two options: pick up your order at the 18th Street Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings or for non-food items, we can ship across the U.S.

Until next time…

121-Farmer’s Market Is A G0!

We are super excited that the farmer’s markets are going forward this season.

Yes, things will look a bit different, but you will be able to get fresh local produce. Our season begins on May 16, 2002 in Charleston at the 18th Street Farmer’s Market and we will add Casey’s Market Thyme as soon as it opens.

As a warm up to market season and to test out some of our new online ordering system, we had a curbside pickup day on the Farm May 2, 2020. Everything went very smoothly and we plan to carry over our lessons to the off-site markets.

To speed up the drive through market process, we encourage all of our customers to order ahead online. We will pack your order and be ready to place it in your trunk or backseat at the market. You can also make selections at the market but online order (and payment) will make everything run more efficiently.

Expect a learning curve as we all work together, but we will find a way to get fresh, local products to you. To place an order, visit our online store or click the picture below:

We will try to have Saturday’s menu available on Mondays, but check back often as we may add more items as produce ripens.

We sincerely appreciate your business.

Until next time….
