FarmDrop connects local consumers directly to surrounding area producers for a quality food shopping experience. Supported by Healthy Acadia and powered by volunteers, FarmDrop allows local food producers to connect with their valued customers with minimal time spent out of the field. Choose from seasonal vegetables and fruits to local meat and diary, place your order online, and pick up a custom box weekly at Floret in Somesville. 10% of FarmDrop sales go to support Healthy Acadia's gleaning program that helps feed families experiencing low income.
