A Message from the Owners

It is with a heavy heart that we share with our members, community partners, and network of farmers and artisans that Grasshoppers Distribution will be discontinuing our service as of Friday, December 6th.

Deciding to discontinue Grasshoppers Distribution has not been an easy decision for board members. Our decision to discontinue our service is a result of our lack of financial sustainability. The economics of the local food distribution business requires scale that we have not been able to achieve, despite the best efforts of many people over these years. We ultimately have decided to do what we feel is best for our Grasshopper clients and our network of farmers and artisans.

We want to thank our members for supporting our organization and mission. Our board members and founders share our collective accomplishments with our members, community partners, farmers, and artisans. Since 2007, Grasshoppers has paid over $2.25 million directly to Kentucky and Southern Indiana family farms and artisans, with a network that has grown to over 70 partners. We have provided healthy, fresh, locally and sustainably grown food to over 1,000 families in our region.

Grasshoppers Distribution reached out to Green BEAN Delivery to acquire its customer and supplier list in order to ensure that the availability of fresh, local food was not interrupted for our members, and that our suppliers would have the best opportunity to continue to provide their products to the Greater Louisville community. The friendly deal placed consideration for current Grasshoppers clients, farmers and food artisans at the top of the list.

Green BEAN Delivery shares many of the same values as Grasshoppers, including strong commitment to supporting local family farmers and providing great service to customers. Our conversations with this company further instilled our belief that Grasshoppers' customers, farmers and artisan partners would be well served by Green BEAN, and we have worked together to try to ensure that the transition is as seamless as possible for everyone.

Green BEAN Delivery has developed a promotional deal to welcome in Grasshoppers' customers. To find out more information regarding Green BEAN Delivery and their promotional offering please visit the page following this letter.

Thank you for supporting Grasshoppers. We are truly proud of our achievements and have been honored to serve you. We hope that you continue to support your local farmers and artisans through the many avenues our community provides.

Welcome, Grasshoppers CSA Members!
