SFoodie examined the handouts ourselves, just to make sure they weren't sponsored by American Express. Good thing Four Barrel
and Matching Half
started accepting credit cards a few months ago -- otherwise, how would their staff know who to keep a close eye on or not?
Frankly, though, coffee drinkers aren't nearly as suspicious as urban farmers. The feds instruct farming stores
to keep a close eye on new customers who act "nervous or impatient" and possess "little knowledge of crops, soil composition, field size, application methods, or fertilizers." So you'd better read up on the soil in your garden before even going to the store. And make sure to pay with your credit card.
