COVID 19: All drop‐off and pick‐up activity will occur outdoors, with mandatory mask-wearing and hand‐sanitizing. Only customers will touch their pre‐bagged items. Taghum Hall has strictly followed all Public Health safety guidelines thus far, and will continue to monitor and adapt to changing requirements.

This program is community‐minded, connecting farmers and customers, and is run by volunteers. The project is gentle on the Earth by not contributing to packaging/shipping waste and allows farmers/artisans only one distribution trip to town. Is that a win-win or what?

Thanks to Columbia Basin Trust for the “Holiday Buy Local” grant which helped to support this initiative!
