DOE RUN FARM’S “WELLNESS IN THE WORKPLACE” PROGRAM
After leaving work, do you often feel too tired to go anywhere to shop for food to get a meal on the table? Don’t want to fight the grocery store crowd? Making a quick healthy meal is a snap when you have fresh food on hand that needs minimum preparation.
We can help by offering employees our “Wellness in the Workplace” farm box deliveries. For the past few years, our farm has partnered with many companies and small businesses to provide their employees with this benefit. We have been told by employees that making healthy food choices to include more fruit, vegetables and fresh produce in their diets is easier when we bring it to their workplace.
Why Should your workplace become a small workplace/corporate partner with Doe Run Farms? Whether your workplace is a small business or a large corporation,, Doe Run Farms can help you develop a workplace delivery that’s suited to your place of business.
A workplace CSA delivery offers employees the following benefits: (Community Supported Agriculture)
- Convenience – No more fighting traffic or dealing with tired kids when you pick up your farm box after work. Leave work with your veggies and save shopping and driving time.
