ANT Hole Another way we give back to the community is by our stationary and mobile food stands to sell the product of the farm. Stationary stands set at community events, Eastern Market and community centers will give neighborhoods access to fresh organic produce. Mobile trucks will provide services to the areas where under served residents live such as senior living, blighted communities etc. ANT Hole will also provide souvenirs to purchase while visiting our locations.
