Why buy local foods? You'll get exceptional taste and freshness, strengthen your local economy, support endangered family farms, safeguard your family's health, and protect the environment. Coastal Farms is an on-line farm to family program that was developed in an effort to connect family owned and operated farms serving the Hampton Roads area with customers in search of local farm fresh foods and products year round. Coastal Farms represents more than 50 local farms and businesses serving the Coastal Plains region. It is easy to become a "Hampton Roads Locavore" (locally grown food eater) today with the help of Coastal Farms!
We began Coastal Farms April 16, 2010 and have been growing ever since. The program works on a weekly cycle, year round. You can place your order on-line between Friday and Monday evening, and then pick it up at one of our convenient Hampton Roads area locations on Thursdays. Right now we have 20 locations in Newport News, Hampton, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Isle of Wight.
Currently we offer a 6 month membership. Our 6 month membership fee is $75 and covers logistics such as basic administration, distribution expenses and the maintenance of our website. In the future we will be offering memberships for longer and shorter periods however, the 6 month fee will remain the same.
If you are familiar with Community Supported Agriculture programs (CSA), you will love Coastal Farms. We offer products from numerous local farms, allowing you to pick what you want, when you want using our convenient website. Our program lets you, the consumer, be in control without sacrificing the best of what Hampton Roads producers have to offer.
Please tell your friends and family about us. If you are interested in learning more about how our business will operate please check out our parent company and sister businesses at www.luluslocalfood.com. We look forward to developing relationships between you and the producers we are promoting. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
