We now offer 3 options for our weekly fresh foods service:
• PLEASE make sure we deliver to your town PRIOR to ordering. Orders canceled after 7am on Sunday will receive a 50% refund only. We understand life happens and will always do our best to work with you, however, we are a small business and purchase ingredients based upon actual orders. We appreciate your understanding in advance.
• Orders designated for pick up at our 119 Shrewsbury St Worcester location can be picked up Thursday 11am-5:30pm, Friday 11am-4pm or Saturday 10am-2pm. Orders designated for pick up at Royal Crest Farm or Walker Farm are subject to their open times. Please check their websites prior to ordering.
• Orders are taken online from Monday at 8pm (approximately) through SATURDAY at 5pm. All deliveries are made on the following Thursdays. No orders will be accepted after 5pm on Saturday.
• Due to the amount of orders we receive each week, we cannot guarantee a specific time of delivery. We will, however, do our best to accommodate any requests you may have. All orders are generally done between 8am and 2pm. Uncontrollable factors, such as traffic, weather, etc prevent us from being specific on times.
• On Thursday morning you will receive a text from our delivery alert system giving you an estimated half hour time-frame of when to expect your delivery. Our drivers work hard to maintain this schedule. Once your order has been delivered, you will receive a text. If you were not home, you should see a picture taken of where your order was placed by my driver.
• VIP: If you cannot be available at the time of delivery, PLEASE make alternate arrangements. At your discretion, you may choose to leave out an appropriate-sized cooler with ice packs (not ice) to keep the food fresh. Most of our products need refrigeration. We are not responsible for orders once they have been delivered.
