Local FarmBag is a locally owned and operated home delivery service offering top quality organic and local produce, artisan foods, and groceries to food lovers throughout the Savannah and Hilton Head areas. Local FarmBag began when a small farmers market in downtown Savannah went on hiatus. We felt the need to continue connecting customers with our local farmers, but in a year round, more convenient way. That’s when we decided to bring the farmers market to you.
Local Farmbag is like no other program out there in the Low Country and one of only a few others in the country. We work directly the farmers in providing our customers with only the best and freshest locally and organically grown produce. Unlike other CSA programs, we are not constricted to working with only one or a few area farms. We have unfettered access to farms from Florida to South Carolina. If our Georgia farms cannot provide the diversity or quality we demand, we are free to use any of the producers we have relationships with - that is no small number and growing every month! And the best part is, we deliver all of this fantastic high quality produce directly to your door. With Local Farmbag there is no need to have to drive to a pick up point - you can get everything brought to you.
We are committed to building strong relationships with our customers and our providers. With LFB, you will find unsurpassed customer service and a staff that will accommodate almost all requests concerning your deliveries and it's contents. We view our customers as family and we hope to grow with you. For example, you will always know in advance what will be in your Farmbag but if for any reason you would like to make a substitution or add something on, just let us know and we will do it! Our program is very flexible and there are no hard and fast rules for our customers. We want you to have what you want - and we will make sure you get it.
There are other delivery programs out there but it is the philosophy driving us that is the biggest difference. Fostering supportive relationships with both farmer and customer. Creating a unique Farmers Market environment that is inviting and fun - after all, this is food we are taking about! It should be fun and experimental. Reliable, friendly and always available customer service ready to help you no matter how. Our people are the difference. If you want to get our newsletter to see what we do on a weekly up-to-the minute basis, see our recipes and what we are up to, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a few weeks of our newsletter without having to sign up. Please put "Newsletter" in the subject line. Also be sure to "friend" us on Facebook and get even more recipes and pics.
And to make sure we do our part to support the local community, $1 of every purchase will go to a local non-profit charity. The charity will change in each region every other month and we would be happy to hear from you about what charities and causes are important to you.
For the months of February 2012 and March 2012, we are working with Teens HOPE, a local charity started and run by a LFB customer's family. This wonderful charity provides material entertainment such as TV's, computers, Playstation 3s and XBox 360s to the pediatric cancer floor of Memorial Hospital. In addition to providing the entertainment, members of Teens HOPE regularly visit the kids on the cancer floor for moral support, encouragement, and a friendly face. These same members are almost all from local schools such as Savannah Country Day and Savannah Arts Academy to start soon! We are very proud to be working with them. Remember every bag sold will see one dollar from that sale going to this charity for February and March. Please sign up today and help us support the patients on the pediatric cancer ward.
