This Weeks Fresh Harvest April 27- May 1, 2020
Don’t Just Thank a Farmer ~ Thank his wife for cooking, delivering meals, going for parts or moving fields all while taking care of her usual jobs
Thank his hired man for working endless hours on sleepless nights to ensure the crop comes off
And thank his children who are ok if seeing him is just for a brief moment while he eats his meals in the field
Farming is a family business and it takes a sacrifice from all…So don’t just thank a farmer….thank the Family!
From our SLO Veg Family to all of our SLO Veg Farmers we’re so very grateful and thankful to all of you for your tireless work and dedication in taking care of us every day!

We realize that this season in all of our lives is challenging and requires an extra layer of protection. At SLO Veg, we are continually taking all necessary precautions to ensure our produce, our staff, farmers, and subscribers are safe and healthy. Throughout our busy day we wear protective face coverings and masks along with gloves while prepping our harvest boxes during production and during our delivery routes. We’re frequently sanitizing our work stations along with frequent hand washing. At this time we are not picking up boxes to re-use or recycle to ensure everyone’s safety.
