Kula Fields | What’s In The Box? | April 2-5, 2014

Kula Fields Boxes 04-02-14 Yes, I know it has been awhile since I last posted a “What’s In The Box?” post.  There are a few reasons why.  Right around the holidays, I surveyed our customer base to find out what was working and what wasn’t.  Turns out that those who responded didn’t really read the posts so I felt I was wasting time.  However, those who didn’t respond to the survey let me know, loud and clear, that they were missing the weekly posts. It didn’t help that the weather was awful, at best, and I really felt uninspired to take pictures and post the list online since I couldn’t really offer any ideas of what would truly be in the boxes. I would place my orders with the farmers and by the time I was supposed to pick up the goods they just simply weren’t available due to the weather.
What I’ve learned is that potential customers find the posts quite helpful. Now, to just get motivated and inspired… Mangoes always work! Hope they inspire your menus this week too!
