We are not your typical wholesaler, but rather a conduit and consultant to our partner Farmers and Customers. We are in constant back and forth contact with our customers and farmers with feedback, education and sharing best practices. We personally speak with every customer and go over the week’s availability, product movement, quality and any special needs. Our tag line Farm Today…Yours Tomorrow is not marketing; it is our strategy!
During the local season, for example, we may take an order for lettuces in the morning, notify the grower that evening, who cuts fresh from the fields the following morning, washes, packs and hydrocools that afternoon for us to stage and load in the evening and deliver the next morning. As you might expect, tomatoes are vine-ripened and we carry little to no inventory at the end of each order cycle.
In the off-season FarmLind has its own over-the-road transport company, as well as a network of trucking companies it uses to bring the same quality and freshness from Florida, not in the same 24-30 hours from the fields, but in less than three days.
With the close relationship with our growers, we make sure the product you pick up in the store looks like it just came out of the fields – a controlled process from Farm to Store!
