The challenge for us has been to find a way past our home delivery sales model. We adopted this during Covid when we lost all our wholesale accounts, and needed to pivot quickly to stay in business. Whilst it turned into a runaway success it was also burning us both out! Growing far to many crops to provide the website with variety and and delivery day sometimes turned into a 10hr ordeal
Our online consult followed by time spent at Roebuck Farm showed us how to zero in on our most profitable crops and then where to sell them for the best return. This new focus has also shown us how Soul Food Farm can support our family and allow me to leave my 30hr/wk farming job and focus solely on our business.
