Fresh Harvest - Cheese, Carrots, Beef, Chicken




Market News

Hello!
There will be no Market next week.

The Market will remain open until Tuesday night for you to place an order for this week.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*Orders can be placed without receiving the Sunday email. I try to open the Market between 7 and 8pm on Sunday. Sometimes I run a little late. Just go to the website: http://freshharvest.locallygrown.net/welcome to see if the Market is open.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
*PayPal payments have to be manually added to your account. There will be a delay to crediting your account due to me needing to take time to do the bookkeeping. I also have to go to each account with cash or check payments. These are sometimes delayed by procrastination or being busy. You can still place an order even though it may cause your account to be “overdrawn”. There is no penalty for going into the minus column. Sometimes I’m a little slow in getting to the bank to make deposits, but it eventually happens.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

Fresh Harvest for January 5th




Market News

Hello!
I hope that everyone enjoyed the holidays and having time with their family and friends. That was the case for me although I found myself turning into quite the slug. It’s back to work with a purpose now. I hope that your New Year’s resolution is to try to eat more locally grown food. We’ll do our best to give you that opportunity this year. Surprisingly, we have a pretty good selection this week with lots of carrots, lettuces, mushrooms and greens. I’m not sure what the winter schedule will be including next week, but I will keep you updated. It depends on the quantity of veggies our growers have available each week and whether a blizzard is in the forecast.

Bear Creek and Wedge Oak have a great variety of meats. Bloomy Rind has 10 delectable items listed.

Cookies, breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are plentiful.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

Fresh Harvest for December 15th




Market News

Hello!
This will be the last delivery for 2019. It’s been a great year! Thank you. I had hoped to come up with something witty, but I’m currently feeling a little witless. There are plenty of options on cheese, meats and baked goods that will be wonderful for the holidays. It will probably be the second week of January before we’ll be back, but I’ll let you know in 2020.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.

Back in the saddle again…It looks like we’re on for Wednesday even though the 10 day forecast sticks a snowflake on for Tuesday. We’ll hope for the best. We should be delivering the week of the 15th also and then we’re off for the rest of the year. There’s quite an abundance of veggies this week.

Unless something unforeseen happens, the last delivery of 2019 will be on December 18th. With those two deliveries, it will be the time to stock up for the holidays.

Fresh Harvest for Thanksgiving




Market News

Hello!

This will be the last Market until after Thanksgiving. It appears that the harsh cold snap has slowed down the production of the green leafy veggies. They should bounce back in December. In lieu of the upcoming holiday and that Susie’s old office is overflowing with sweet potatoes, the price for them is at half price. Bloomy Rind has an even dozen of delectable items for Thanksgiving.

Here’s a link for a recipe for Butternut Squash and Mac and Cheese: https://www.thekitchn.com/butternut-squash-mac-and-cheese-262082

In the meat category, there is quite the selection of pork, beef, chicken and duck. If you need something for the holidays, let me know and I’ll see if Bear Creek or Wedge Oak will be able to have it for you.

Dozen Bakery will have pies and other wonderful items available for your Thanksgiving. You can check out the options at their website: https://www.dozen-nashville.com/thanksgiving-menu-2019
To order you can email them at: holidays@dozen-nashville.com or call them at: (615) 712-8150. Deadline for ordering is the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

Dozen Bakery’s galettes, cookies and breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are all in abundance.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
