MONTICELLO, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.
In Monticello, local farms are teaming up to provide fresh foods to Big Bend families.
Seed Time Harvest Farms is providing farm-fresh groceries to families.
You can either buy these 'grocery bags' week by week, or through a subscription. You get enough items to last you about two weeks, which is how often deliveries are made.
Cetta Barnhart, the owner of Seed Time Harvest Farms, says that she has seen the increased need during these times, but also thinks people are interested for a different reason.
"That does say to me that people are very interested in finding where fresh food is and connecting with local farmers, and I think people are realizing that the small farmer is the asset to your community," said Barnhart.
Chris and Kiona Wagner own Rocky Soil Family Farms.
"I think the community will really appreciate that their food is only processed by our two hands," Kiona Wagner said.
Rocky Soil Family Farms is just one of the many local farms that partners with Barnhart.
