The O2T Fish & Farm Box Santa Cruz Deliver 3/26

Greeting Fish Enthusiasts!

After catching our breath last week, we’ve been busy fishing, foraging and connecting with new business partners. The Covid-19 outbreak has been tough on Ocean2Table, but it has given us the opportunity to grow stronger as a community and cast a light on the people and things that we care most about.

Out on the Monterey Bay, the California Halibut are currently biting and our local Golden Chanterelles are making a late-season (but solid) showing in the hills around the bay. The FV Mr. Morgan is out on their first trip of the season today and are targeting Chilipepper Rockfish.

Over the last couple of months, we've been working hard coordinating a new Ocean2Table Farm Box program with several farms in Santa Cruz County, including Fogline Farm, Groundswell Farm, Mariquita Farm, Pajaro Pastures, and Companion Bakery. Together, we’ll be offering local fish, mushrooms, chicken, eggs, fruit, vegetables and bread for Home Delivery ONLY in Santa Cruz County on Thursday, March 26th. We have plans to deliver to San Mateo and Santa Clara counties early next week. We are working as hard as possible to ramp up supply but do anticipate that we will be needing some time to meet demand. In the same way that we have told the story of captains and foragers, we will be sharing with you the stories from our friends on the farm.
