Meet Mina and Ann!

Mina’s very favorite things about working the Farm Stand are sharing recipes, and learning new cooking and food preparation ideas.

She hoists crates of vegetables like a trooper and her internal head calculator cannot be beat!

Ann(hey! That’s me!) feels honored when she’s permitted to observe the wild passion our Farm Stand shoppers bring to their recipes.

When people start describing a cooking method using their hands? There’s almost nothing better to watch.

Say hello to Mina and Ann on your next Farm Stand visit and if you want to share a recipe? We’re all ears. (🌽 Get it?)

Meet Breanna!

“James Beard once said that food is our common ground. A universal experience. And Real Foods Collective is that universal experience.

Every farm stand, delivery, and interaction make me feel more and more connected with my community.”

Our thanks goes out to Breanna and her quick smile and gentle spirit that also impacted this season’s Real Foods Collective Farm Stand!
