"FRESH FOOD ALL YEAR ROUND
We are working on developing a Co-op program designed to connectfamily owned and operated farms serving the Goochland, Virginia area with customers in search of local food year during the winter season when the Goochland Farmers Market is not open. Our Co-op wouldrepresent more than a dozen local farms and businesses serving Goochland County.
The program works on a weekly cycle with orders opening Wednesday evening. Pick up at a location within Goochland Courthouse would be on Tuesday afternoon.
Our Winter Season would run from November 4th through April 27th.Registration would be in the range of $50.00-$75.00, for the six month season; these fees cover logistics, basic administration and marketing expenses as well as the maintenance of our website.
