As we near the end of our beloved Farmers Market season, we wanted to give all of you some updates we are happy to be rolling out. First, we know that some of you have had less than perfect experiences with us due to undesirable substitutions in place of items specifically ordered. So, as of now if there are items missing when we pick up from the farm, instead of sticking anyone with some random item we will pick up items from Clark’s Nutrition a family run organic grocer that has a beautifully stocked produce section. And the other change we will be making is that if only 1 or 2 people order on a given week outside of Thanksgiving or Christmas weeks, then the orders will be rolled over to the following week. It is our hope that we can get back on track, thriving for the good of our community.

Pick-up information Orders can be picked up by customers at Sugarloaf Park at 44866 Baldwin Ln in Big Bear City 92314, next to the firehouse typically between 7 PM and 8 PM on Tuesdays on weeks that deliveries are scheduled. Produce arrives in the farmer’s crates, so bring a container or bags to transfer into if you don’t want to hassle with returning the crate. A supply of reusable bags and boxes is available. Direct delivery to the address you specify for shipping is available for an additional $7.50, which is selected at checkout.
Do not hesitate to contact F2M about delivery needs or order issues: 909-547-4163 (call or text). Email might not be seen quickly, so please call or text regarding time-sensitive issues. Crate return Many of you probably have empty crates stacking up or stored from past orders, and if you find them they can be returned to BLT’s any time you pass by. If you are ordering regularly, the crates can be traded out at your next order. You are always welcome to transfer produce to a bag, box, or other container to avoid having the crate.
Visitors Who Will Return Home Soon… If you have been a visitor in Big Bear during the covid19 stay-at-home order, please return your crate before you leave Big Bear. If you wish to be removed from the Farm2Mountain email updates, just let me know as well. You are always welcome to order if you return!

How to clean produce To clean your produce, a few drops of natural dish soap in a sink of water will be enough to wash off anything lurking on your food. Thick-skinned produce can soak a few minutes, leafy greens just need a dip and swish, and thin-skinned produce can be dipped and wiped or soaked quickly. Rinse everything well. Vinegar can turn leafy greens black if it’s used as a veggie wash in too high a concentration, and it might not kill viruses. Soap-based cleaning products will strip the virus of its outer coating and kill it.
