Delivery News
REMINDER: Order deadline is Noon the day before we deliver:

 

  • There is a new Delivery option for those of you that live in Tucker. Mother Natures Market will now serve as a drop-off location. Delivery day for this location will be Tuesday, so orders will need to be placed by 12:00 Noon on  Monday. You will be able to swing by Tuesday or Wednesday to collect your order. Orders will be under proper refrigeration until picked up. 
  • The Home Delivery Map has been expanded, specifically around the Lawrenceville/Grayson area. Smaller expansions were made in other areas. Get your Carlton Farms order delivered to your door in a insulated cooler. It's super awesome!  
  • We are brainstorming the idea of private drop-off locations. It would work like this:
    • You and at least 4 friends/neighbors/coworkers want to order from Carlton Farms and receive delivery at the same location. 
    • Because 5+ deliveries are going to one location we could significantly reduce the delivery fee.
    • Your delivery location would be private, you would be emailed a link when we set up your location. Only people that you give the link will be able to order for that location. It will not even be visible online unless you sign in with the link provided. 
    • The orders will be delivered in insulated coolers with a proper amount of ice pack to keep the products cold for the remainder of the day. 
    • If you are interested in this concept or have ideas/suggestions, please reply to this email to let us know. 
  • Beef and Pork have been freshly harvested, inventory has been updated. Enjoy.
  • Eggs have beautiful dark orange yolks. They got a little light over the summer when they were laying the heaviest. Now they have slowed down a little bit, and the beta-carotene has caught back up. They look and taste fabulous.

On the Farm

Fall Activities on the farm:       
Each Fall we take the opportunity to open our farm to the public. We welcome anyone that wants to spend a nice fall day navigating a Corn Maze, Enjoying a hayride, and Visiting with all the Farm animals. The hayride goes out into the dairy cow pasture, where you will get a up close encounter with the Cows of Carlton Farms. Along the way you will learn about the history of Carlton Farms and what we do on the farm today. The Corn Maze is 5 acres and over 1.5 miles of trail. Each year we create a new design and cut it out ourselves. The Maze presents a new challenge each year. In the Animal barn you will get to hang out with some of the youngest members of the family, including baby calves, baby pigs, baby chicks, goats, sheep, and chickens. If that's not enough, you can spend some time in the activities area, where we have a corn cannon, giant slide, ball toss shed, hay bale maze, corn play bin, and hay jump.
