Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest News




Market News

Hi all-
I hope you and your families are doing well in these difficult days. I’m grateful for the sunshine!

An update: I’m going to suspend Fresh Harvest deliveries until the coronavirus is under better control. For myself and my family — and for others — we’re staying home.

The farmers and producers that participate with Fresh Harvest have been hit hard by the virus and the economic effects of it. Many producers had substantial sales with restaurants which have immediately dried up. Dozen Bakery is temporarily closed, but hopes to reopen April 6th. Bongo Java has closed for the time being. When I learn of alternative options for you to purchase from Fresh Harvest producers, I will do my best to let you know. Strawberry season is approaching and we’ll try to figure out how to get those to you.

I’ve always enjoyed seeing all of you on Wednesdays, and I miss it. Hope you are staying healthy.

If you need to text me, my number is 615-838-0428.

Champaign, OH:  Golden


We are stardust, we are golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden…
(Woodstock-Joni Mitchell)

Well, last night was our first market, with record numbers, held at the farm, and I must say, with just a few adjustments to times of vendor deliveries…it was a smashing success!!! You, the customers, made for a seamless, enjoyable, and fun market pick up!

Curbside service was a breeze, and those of you who waited on your boxes to be brought to your car, told me how much you loved standing outside, taking in the view, the spring air, and the drive that brought you out.

The prepay system was a HUGE help in getting your orders out to you, in a timely manner, while keeping the traffic to a minimum inside the shop!

So, here we are, another week available for ordering, and we are so excited to welcome you back!

Yesterday’s market orders looked amazing, and you all left with shining, smiling faces…

Much love, much golden hued happiness…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Champaign, OH:  Thank You


And so today, my world it smiles…
(Thank You-Led Zeppelin)

Well, market customers, that’s a wrap for the first market pick up held at Oakview Farm Meats!! It was a spectacular market with spectacular customers, and spectacular vendors!!

Thank you for allowing us to bring your orders to your cars, or, keeping social distance happening, inside the shop! The spirit of the evening was all about happy, and peace, and kindness.

I loved the customers who found such tranquility in the views, I loved the customers who were excited to take a drive out of town, and to get to know the new venue. We collected a whole lot of new customers, and we hope to continue the trend!

Thank you, for being patient, while waiting in your cars, and thank you for all of the kind words.

With that, I am opening the market, once again…we will continue to conduct the market, at the farm, with pick up times, 4pm-6pm.

Here we go…and, once again, from the bottom of my heart, we all thank you, kindly!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Heritage Farm :  New Beef Inventory Added!!!


We have listed our new beef harvest and some other amazing products headed your way on the April 11th farm truck!! Don’t miss out while this wonderful spring beef is on the menu. We will be delivering to all locations on Saturday April 11th!!

A lot of you have asked what you can do to help us during this time of crisis and transition for our farm. We are continuing to look ahead to spring and will be keeping you updated.

If anyone wants to help during this Covid 19 shut down the simplest way to do it is to buy a farm share to redeem for future inventory purchases. This gives us the needed cash flow to stay afloat during this new economic model and will provide you with some great local food in the coming months. Farm shares are available on the online store.

Heritage Farm is going to be on Spring Break for the remainder of March so we can get some housecleaning items addressed and we will relaunch delivery’s on Saturday 04/11/2020

We will be adding some new menu items and are partnering with another farm to increase the egg availability for springtime.

We have lots of lamb and a new processing of beef coming in for your Easter holiday gatherings.

Place your orders anytime between now and close of business on 04/09/2020 for delviery on Easter weekend!!!

Thanks,
The Hutchins Family
