McCune Farm Cashes in on Cyber Monday Mayhem

Updated:
MCCUNE, KANSAS -

“Schenker Family Farms” is hoping to cash in on the holiday rush, offering deep discounts on holiday hams and goodies all weekend.

"We are still going strong. I think the people that are ordering online, there's a lot more of 'em because it's a lot easier than getting out in bad weather, and all that,” says shipping clerk Jessie Hammons.

"They can sit in the comfort of their homes in that weekend and shop with us. They can shop with us at three in the morning in their pajamas if they want,” says Schenker Family Farms owner Cherie Schenker.

In the past the farm focused their efforts mainly on black Friday and Cyber Monday, but this year small business Saturday was a hit

Schenker says “Since more and more people want to keep their dollars local or at least within the same region in which they live in we really promote Small Buisness Saturday.. And we've seen tremendous growth in our Small Business Saturday sales. We also expect pretty good volume for our Cyber Monday too."

As the largest direct to consumer farm in the state of Kansas holidays like Cyber Monday help to keep those online orders rolling in throughout the holiday season.

"They normally order one package but now they're ordering about 3 or 4 or the same so time, which is about over a hundred pounds of it."

Although the farm sells their products in stores like whole foods and other natural grocers, about half of holiday sales are online and most of the shoppers are women.

Schenker says "It's normally ladies shopping that are 38-72 it depends on who they're shopping for. We see a lot of gifts ranging from $25 to $75."

“Schenker Family Farms” also delivers goods overseas to troops in Afghanistan as part of the Homegrown by Heroes program.
