how wmgc works

Step 01.

Our 50+ member farms grow and produce the food we well.  This list varies from fresh and frozen produce, eggs, meat, dairy, seeds and legumes!
 

STEP 02.

Our passionate sales team starts selling the food that is posted to be harvested that day.  This generally happens every Monday and Thursday, starting bright and early to allow our growers enough time to safely harvest, clean the produce and get things ready to be sent back to the WMGC warehouse.
 

step 03.

Each afternoon the fresh produce is retrieved on one of our refrigerated trucks and shuttled to the coolers in our warehouse for packing.   Our committed warehouse workers pack the orders that were made that morning and ready for shipment the next day.  

step 04.

Whether it's a WMGC truck or one of the partnering transportation specialist we work with, you get your food delivered within 24-48 hours!  This helps ensure that the food you're selling in your store or feeding to your customers is as fresh as possible, helping you reduce waste and any hiccups in your busy day!
