Farm expands produce delivery service


A Daviess County farm is making home deliveries. It's a win-win for both the grower and busy families. Cecil Farms has expanded their delivery program into southern Indiana.

Lauren Payne and her family are always on the go. The dinner table is a special place after a long day where they can sit and enjoy the evening. "It's a slower time of our day. It just gives us a chance where we can enjoy each other even if it's for 30 minutes," said Payne.

Two years ago the family decided to eat healthier and support a local business at the same time. The family brought the farm to them. Cecil Farms in Daviess County is delivering the harvest to their doorstep. The family owned farm picks produce and brings it to people's homes, businesses, and restaurants within 24 hours.The community supported agriculture program has grown over the last 3 years and has now expanded. "we provide that convince so you're still getting the farmers market. It's just being delivered to your door step," said Suzzane Cecil White, Cecil Farms Director of Operations.

Since the harvest is always changing, Payne says Monday is an exciting day because she's not quite sure what she'll get. "we all look forward to what's going to be in our box this week," said Payne.
