we're doing to reduce health risks
Farm has always been well aware of the potential
health risks in the production, storage, packing and
delivery of food, particularly relating to vegetable
products. We strive to make our products as safe for
the consumer as possible while also reducing health
risks for farm workers.
The produce industry has long been aware of the
potential damage that can be caused by harmful
pathogens and here at EverGood we take the utmost care
to reduce risk and uphold industry standards to keep
our products safe for the consumer.
COVID-19 outbreak has created new concerns that effect
not only our production and delivery systems but also
our role in the community. EverGood Farm takes it's
role seriously in not adding to the risk of spreading
the COVID-19 virus. As such we have implemented an
online ordering system to limit the amount of
physical interaction between farm employees and the
public allowing our customers to buy the highest
quality, safest produce around from their homes.
Why the need for change?
Number one: the safety issue for
ourselves and our customers. We feel obliged to help
in the fight to suppress the rate at which COVID-19 is
spreading by reducing the amount of time people need
to spend in public and in close proximity to one
By limiting personal contact, ensuring the transfer of
goods is physically a one way transaction, and being
more control of the product until it gets to the
customer's home, we'll limit the potential of the
virus to spread.
Number two: farming is a fickle
business at the best of times and we really can't be
relying on a market that can be shut down at any time
during the season. There's too much insecurity in the
environment to safely say "Markets will be open this
Number three: we need to keep
ourselves safe and healthy for the continued operation
of the farm. Should a member of the farm contract
COVID-19 we would discontinue produce sales
immediately. One disastrous year on the farm could
have dire consequences for its future.
