L&A Family Farms

Neighborhood Delivery Service

 

 

  L&A Family Farms' Neighborhood Delivery Service is a way for us to deliver our products to you...the way it used to be! Our great grandfather used to go to town to peddle his eggs. We are bringing back this tradition by delivering our high quality fresh products to a pick up point in your neighborhood, or possibly to your door. This gives your family the opportunity to enjoy our farm fresh foods. We know that when you try our products, you will find the taste to be both satisfying and memorable. 

   By joining our delivery service, you will experience the convenience of always having our fresh farm products delivered to you. Your delivery day and time will be determined by the location you choose.  It will be the same each time, unless it falls on a holiday (ex: 2nd Tuesday of the month).

   You will pick your location during the sign-up process. We will determine if delivery is possible to your area. Transportation and profitability constraints require us to maintain a minimum number of deliveries or dollar amounts for each location.  If these minimums are not met, we will be unable to deliver to your area at all or not as often. We will notify you if we cannot deliver to your area at this time. Our suggestion is that if you want our products delivered, urge your friends and neighbors to sign up for deliveries also. 

   There will be times when we are out of a certain product.  We know this is frustrating to you, but please be aware of the seasonal fluctuations that occur. Our modern grocery stores have us spoiled because food is shipped all over the world, and you can get seasonal items out of season. This is not possible for us because we are a small farm, not a large wholesale operation. It is hard to predict what and how much to raise since we don’t know what and how much our customers will buy. We do encourage you to use naturally abundant items like ground beef, sausage, and non-breast chicken parts. To be profitable, we must utilize the whole animal.

   Although we are confident you will be satisfied with our services, you may stop service at any time. We pride ourselves on the service we extend all of our customers. If you are discontinuing delivery for a service related issue, please let us know so we can correct it.

Here is a list of common questions about our Neighborhood Delivery Service:

 

How does it work?

Sign up here and choose the location you prefer.

Shop our online store and order your pastured raised meats, eggs, and farm fresh produce.

Meet us at a specified date and time to pick up, or have delivered, your order.

Is there a minimum order?

We do not require a minimum value per order for delivery, but if some of our other minimum constraints are not met we may be unable to deliver your order.  Some will have to be determined on a case by case basis.  We only deliver to customers with current accounts. If you have a past due balance you will not receive delivery until your account is current.

Is there a delivery charge?

Yes.  We charge a flat $.25 per pound for each delivery.  For example Joe orders a dozen Jumbo eggs and a whole chicken.  The Jumbo eggs weigh two pounds and the whole chicken weighed four pounds.  The delivery charge would be $1.50.

How do I sign up?

To receive our delivery service, you need to join our Neighborhood Delivery Service and complete the online application.  We require full names, phone numbers, and an email address.  Please inform us of any changes to your address, phone number or email address.

How do I place an order?

Once you sign up, you will receive a password.  This password can then be reset to meet your needs. The password will allow you to access your account, and make the check out procedure quicker.  Then all you have to do is place your desired items into your shopping cart and then check out.  Your order needs to be placed up to 48 hours prior to your scheduled delivery day.  Our on-line shopping cart will not give the exact total dollar amount due, just an estimate.  We sell by weight and will not know the total until the order is filled.  You will be notified by email or a phone call confirming your order and a total dollar amount given prior to delivery.

 

What if I don’t need anything on my scheduled delivery date?

All you need to do is simply not place an order (although utilizing our service is the best way to keep eggs, pasture raised meats and vegetables always available in your home.)  

How do I pay?

Payment for all deliveries is due upon receipt of the delivery, and payment can be made by cash,check, or major credit/debit cards. 

If you do not want the hassle of payment each time, we suggest you purchase one of our combo packages.  This way you pay up front and receive a discount on your purchases.  You will still be charged the delivery fee.

 

What dates and times do you deliver? 

Our dates and times are specific to each location.  The delivery time frame is concise, so please be on time.

If we do not deliver in your area at this time, have you ever considered hosting a pick up location?  Fill out this form if you are potentially interested in hosting a new pick up location. Filling out this form does not commit you to anything.  This will allow us to keep you informed of any opportunity that may occur in your area.

  • You must be within 200 miles of the farm or less than 4 hrs away. 
  • Must preferably be at a residential location with ample parking or at a business that's granted permission. 
  • Each drop must average certain sales levels over the course of the year.
  • The further from the farm, the larger the income must be.
