A Community of Natural Splendor and Historical Significance

Take & Bake 2020

image25

Our Take & Bake program begins Friday January 24, 2020 and will run each Friday through April 17, 2020. 


The program allows us to stay connected with our community over the winter when the garden is quiet and the market is closed. We look forward to bringing you a unique menu of goodies to choose from each week, including fresh local eggs from Eggceptional Abilities as well as honey straight from our hives here at the farm.  


The new menu is posted each Friday afternoon. Order Friday-Monday for pick-up the following Friday.

___________________________


 This week we will be offering a modified Take & Bake menu for door step delivery, as our buildings currently remain closed to the public.   In effort to take extra precaution around the spread of COVID-19, orders will be delivered to all residences within a 10 mile radius of Elawa Farm for a small fee of $5. If you are outside the 10 mile radius of Elawa, please contact info@elawafarm.org to see if delivery can be arranged. An additional fee may be charged. 

  

**Please know that our kitchen is fully sanitized and the utmost care and attention will be taken while preparing and delivering your order**
