“The most simple things can bring the most happiness.” – Izabella Scorupco
Here is what we have going on this week, Monday, August 4 – Friday, August 8:
Explore our selection of 100% organic cotton jersey garments—the versatility of our fabric is great for the changing seasons.

Jack-O-Lantern Farm + Community Supported Agriculture
Alabama Chanin strives to support local farmers whenever possible—especially now that we’ve opened The Factory Café and are sourcing local and organic ingredients for all of our dishes. Our kitchen manager, Arron, has built a strong relationship with our friends Steve and Connie Carpenter, who operate nearby Jack-O-Lantern Farm.
Jack-O-Lantern Farm has launched their 2014 Community-Supported Agriculture box program—and The Factory is a pick-up location. Steve set up payment plans for pre-ordered boxes. While Quantities vary, the amount of food in a CSA box-usually a 1/2 bushel-is designed to feed a family of four for a week.
To sign up for Jack-O-Lantern's 2014 CSA Box program follow this link.
Choose your pick-up location (The Factory), your share (full or half), add farm-fresh eggs to your box (if you wish), and then pick a payment plan.
