Spring Harvest News

Dear Worden Farm Supporters,

We have an abundance of USDA-certified organic vegetables in our fields right now, ready to harvest for you. Our Spring crops are growing well, and we anticipate many harvests ahead.

It is unclear when the farmers market will be open. This is a major unexpected upset for the farm. We apologize for any inconvenience as we strive to provide quality products and services to our community in Southwest Florida. 

We are trying to do our best in this situation and appreciate your support. We are modifying our regular distribution in order to continue to offer our organic vegetables and promote local food security with flexibility and convenience.

Here are the options for how you can get your Worden Farm vegetables at this time:

Organic Veggie Boxes
Available on Wednesdays at delivery sites throughout Southwest Florida, from Naples through Fort Myers, and up through Sarasota and St. Petersburg. 
Limited trial memberships are available. Sign up here for the Spring Special Organic Veggie Boxes.

Organic Farm Stand
Wednesdays in Punta Gorda, Florida at Worden Farm, 34900 Bermont Road. 
The crowd size will be limited, the hours will be extended, and the selling area will be expanded to ensure ample space and time for social distancing. 
Hours will be from 12:00 noon – 6:00 p.m. through April 15. 
We are following the best practices of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for protecting the health and wellbeing of our community. 
Limited trial memberships are available. Sign up here for the Organic Farm Stand.

Adjustments and announcements will be made to continue to serve you well as conditions change. We may extend the offerings further at a limited number of locations.
