The Farm Stand New Look

We have been working on improving your experience at our farm stand and restaurant.  If you haven’t already, please stop by and check it out.

We started working with Jonathan Bryant Jensen early this year to make some improvements.  Jensen, a self-employed carpenter, has been resourceful remodeling and designing built environments for the last 15 years, and he is a dedicated Gathering Together Farm customer to boot!

He was first approached by John Eveland to work on replacing the plastic paneling and installing a glass facade to the farm stand.  Jensen was able to re-purpose wood panels from dairy in Lewisburg and salvaged glass from a local glass business.  Now you can enjoy your meal with a crystal clear view of our bustling farm!

Jensen replaced our old, small and poorly functioning gutters with retired irrigation pipe. These sort of projects fit right into our farm’s vision for sustainability  and gives Jensen the work he loves best:  giving new life to the old.  Let the water flow!

As a customer Jensen noticed the South West corner of the farm stand, where we store and sell our freezer goods was a little too dark and gloomy.   He redesigned the corner and created a built-in display for our value-added jams, sauces, and pickles and other locally produced goods.

So please come in and check it out!  Our summer hours for the Farm Stand and restaurant are in full swing: Tue – Fri, 9 – 6 and Sat 9 – 5. Click here for more details.

Not sure how you are trying to improve the experience. We certainly didn’t feel it.
