COVID-19 Response at ARTfarm; How to Get Food

We’ve been fielding lots of calls and messages from folks who want to shop for one or two items at the farm. We have temporarily closed the farmstands for the rest of the 2019-2020 growing season due to efforts to practice social distancing, in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

We ARE distributing our produce through pre-reserved, pre-packaged farm shares, ordered through our website, with once-a-week distribution. Check our recent posts on this site (scroll down the page) for instructions on how to participate. A fresh new farm share signup is posted every Friday, typically close to 10am. Customers can reserve a limited number of items, and arrive in staggered pre-reserved pickup groups the following day to collect their items. This makes the social exposure much less, assures that customers are not touching food items, and keeps the interactions very brief.

We love our customers, we miss chatting with you, and we’re proud of everyone in the Virgin Islands working together to flatten the curve. Special thanks to our healthcare and essential workers who are on the job to keep everyone healthy and safe and fed.

CORN!! Baby Spicy Wednesday 3-4:30pm

baby spicy salad mix
Baby spicy is our super young salad mix of mustard and arugula varieties with a bit of baby Chinese cabbage. Enjoy its mild wasabi-like flavor as a standalone salad or a garnish.

UPDATE: Farmer Luca may have slightly underestimated the amount of sweet corn we have available today. Please come and help us enjoy the bounty! No GMO’s, people!

The sweet corn we are growing at ARTfarm is a Hawaiian hybrid variety. It is deeeelicious! And we usually only have it for very short bursts of time.

Wednesday afternoon ARTfarm shopping: sweet salad mix, baby arugula, baby spicy salad mix, loads and loads and loads of tomatoes including lots of heirlooms, cherry tomatoes; watermelon, lots of fresh figs, cooking greens, dandelion greens, endive, cilantro, dill, garlic chives, Italian basil, Thai basil, lemon basil, French breakfast radishes, carrots, Thai pumpkin, butternut, all of our assorted spicy and sweet small peppers, and zinnias. Early birds will get cucumbers and sweet corn.

This mindblowing spread of diversity is grown here at the ARTfarm, using sustainable methods, fewest possible inputs, closing loops, minimizing machinery use, pulling from over 20 years of farming experience to keep it all as organic as possible.
