We are saddened to report to you that a Greensboro landmark business will not be reopening this summer. For decades, David Allen and Diana Griffiths have provided our community with locally-grown, organic vegetables, fruits, meats and chceses and in recent years, specialty pantry items – not to mention The New York Times every day. Several years ago, David and Diana decided to try a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model for their farmstand business, in which people could buy a “share” in advance for the summer and use their balance toward Hazendale’s abundant and high quality offerings.
In a letter to past CSA members this week, Diana and David wrote, “After much thought and deliberation we have decided not to open the farmstand this summer. Our decision is fueled by the lack of young workers coming forward and a low CSA response. […] A big thank you to those who have continued to support us over the years and we look to seeing you around this summer. You will find some of our produce in both Willey’s Store and Buffalo Mt. Co-op.”
We thank them for their many years as a bright spot in the Greensboro landscape.
