There is no minimum order and you are not required to order each week.  Orders are placed Friday through Monday, with delivery at Manakin Market on the following Saturday morning.

Lisa and "Cupcake"
Our exciting fall events calendar is starting to fill up rapidly!  I'm very excited to announce that ChiknEGG Productions and RVAg will be partnering with Aw Shucks Country Store to produce quite a few special events in the coming months, including some pop-up evening markets, poultry swaps, alpacas days and even a few ladies nights.  Watch for upcoming events to be announced next week.  We also are partnering with the Central VA Farmers Market Association to bring a one day pop-up market to the Fife Fire Station on Sunday, September 13th.  This one-time pilot program will offer farm fresh produce to our friends in the western end of Goochland County, which is a virtual "food desert".  We will be offering Double SNAP Dollars, live music, a chef's demo and delicious prepared food.  With the addition of our new ChiknEGG MarketPlace pilot program, our capacity is growing and strengthening, and our piece of the much larger food system in Central Virginia is starting to take up a larger footprint.  This is really rewarding to me.  Thank you to all of YOU who have stood by us and helped us achieve our goals throughout years!
