Season Two Begins!

Aug 2, 2014

Welcome!

Thank you for being a customer, partner, or supporter of Pocahontas County Produce on the Move! Our second season is well under way.  During the months of July & August, we distributed CSA baskets to 20 weekly customers and bulk produce to several commercial/institutional buyers. We've also had a handful of weekly walk-in customers at our new aggregation/distribution hub: 503 Third Avenue, Marlinton. We're open 2-5 pm Thursdays. Come see us!

Our Growers
Operating partners S & S Farm (Minnehaha Springs) and Brightside Acres (Bartow) provide most of the products for sale.  S & S Farm contributes eggs, honey, jam, pasture-raised chicken & pork, and produce while Brightside Acres contributes eggs, fruit preparations, herbal teas, and produce. We've also sourced produce from Bootstraps Farm (Renick) and Windy Acre Farm (Hillsboro). Our cut flowers have come from Hidden River Farm (Mace). Initial deliveries of pasture-raised chicken were provided by Maple Mountain Farm (Durbin).  For the remainder of the season, chicken will be provided by S & S Farm.
Whether you are a CSA member, commercial/institutional buyer, or walk-in customer, we look forward to improving and expanding our service to you.  If there is a particular product you would like to source locally, please suggest it! We might already be producing it or know someone who is. Questions? Suggestions? Contact dawn@brightsideacres.com.  Want to keep up with all that's going on at our farms? Follow us on Facebook.
