Announcing a New Partnership

Our Farm Stand is now accepting pre-orders for delivery on Thursday April 2nd from 4-6pm – on farm only! Check out our offerings this week here: https://uk-csa.firebaseapp.com

Last Friday, you might have caught a post at UK Now about a new partnership between Creation Gardens and UK to put more local products into the hands of consumers – you!

As a supplement to our early season, and as a way to continue to support the farmers who feed our campus community, UK has worked with Creation Gardens to create a new direct-to-consumer option for those interested in supporting Kentucky farms. This is our way of finding a home for the incredible food that was destined for our dining halls, and that home can be yours! The program is called “Local Food Connection Household Market.”

There’s no commitment required, and you can use the service to supplement your existing CSA/Farm Stand purchases with locally raised proteins, eggs, and even mushrooms. New products will be added as new vendors come on-line and the season progresses.

To take advantage of this partnership, create an account and shop the additional offerings here: https://localfoodconnection.localfoodmarketplace.com/Account/Register

Both the Local Food Connection Household Market orders AND the UK CSA Farm Stand orders can be picked up jointly at the UK South Farm on Thursdays from 4-6pm.  Two orders, but one pick up! We are happy to be a host location for this food delivery option and support both our patrons (with more offerings) and our farming friends. #TeamKentucky #TogetherKY
