Many (if not most) of our flowers are edible. In the past, we sent a list of what's blooming to each individual restaurant. But we just joined a new online ordering system for restaurants and chefs called Chesapeake Farm to Table that makes selling our edible flowers and herbs to restaurants waaaay easier.
Here's how it works: we (the farmers) upload our products with pictures and pricing details onto the website. All of the restaurants that also have profiles on the website can see what we have available.
The restaurants can order from as many farmers on the website as they'd like; then each farm brings the produce to Calvert's Gift Farm in Sparks, MD. The farmers at Calvert's Gift deliver all of our produce to each restaurant for us.
Chesapeake Farm to Table not only facilitates relationship between chefs and farmers, but also delivers all of the produce for us, which saves us all tons of time and gas, not to mention lightening our carbon footprint.
