Our Newest Partner: Groundworks Farm in Pittsville, MD
La Prima Food Group is pleased to announce its new partnership with Groundworks Farm, and to congratulate Groundworks Farm on its recent acquisition of 55 acres of prime farmland in Pittsville, Maryland on the Eastern Shore.
Groundworks Farm operates under the popular Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, which provides a direct connection between the customer and farmer. Farmers get important cash flow at the beginning of each season, when paid in advance for a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly (in winter) share. In return, shareholders (customers) get the best produce, eggs, meat and cheese available and excellent value for their money. On their new land, farmers Margaret and Kevin plan to grow a wide variety of vegetables using only sustainable, natural methods. In addition, they raise and sell pasture raised chickens and pigs, as well as eggs from their pasture raised hens.
If you are interested in contributing to Groundworks Farm or purchasing a farm share, please check out their campaign on Kickstarter and make your way to their website. The Kickstarter campaign offers exciting rewards such as merchandise, Margaret’s famous preserves, bed and breakfast style weekends on the farm and more – all only available online through the month of March!
With this new partnership, La Prima is excited to offer its customers sustainably grown local produce and to expand its signature “Seeds to Celebrations” program, which offers eco-elegant, sustainable catering for weddings and other special events.
In addition, La Prima’s valued customers will have access to CSA memberships with distribution points in Annapolis, MD, Alexandria, VA and Arlington, VA. More information on this exciting opportunity will be available soon.
“We are thrilled to partner with Groundworks Farm to offer our customers the best in delicious, healthful, locally sourced food and events,” said La Prima President Dave Evans. “This partnership is one more way La Prima is expanding its commitment to supporting ethical, responsible food practices.”
La Prima Food Group recently earned the prestigious 3 Star Certification from the Green Restaurant Association, and is ranked by GRA as the greenest caterer in the DC metro region. The company’s events division, Catering by Seasons, also holds the top spot on the Green Bride Guide.
