We receive occasional enquiries from chefs and restaurant owners asking what we grow, if we would supply them, and if we will custom grow for them.
Currently we supply Rocket Bakery and Fixed Coffee on a consistent basis. We have had other restaurants on the roll but we were finding sales calls and the inconsistent demand, meaning multiple deliveries from Portugal Cove into downtown, sometimes two a day, was resulting in too great a loss of productive farming time. This is a small operation, one full-time and one part-time person making everything happen. We just couldn’t afford the delivery times and fuel to keep up with the restaurant demand when we had no trouble selling everything at the Farmer’s Market.
All that being said, we understand the importance of serving your customers fresh, locally produced food, and we would like to help you do that.
There’s not a lot being produced yet this year, but we are proposing that once production ramps up, we can let interested chefs know, either by email or they can check a website or facebook posting to see what is being harvested that week. They can call us or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting what they would like and within 24 hours, we can have it delivered to your restaurant by Murray’s Floral Boutique for a $17 fee.
You will find our prices reasonable and a our quality excellent. We wont sell you produce unless is is perfect.
If you are interested, let us know by email (email@example.com) and we will let you know when this program will be ready to go. In the meantime, feel free to come early to the St. John’s Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings and buy up as much as you’d like from us and the other great farmers from around St. John’s! You can keep track of what we’re up to by liking us at facebook.com/murryameadowsfarm
