FOUNDERS' NOTE | THANK YOU!

Osprey Hill Farm

As we close out Eat Local Month we would like to acknowledge all of our customers and Thank You for your commitment to Buying and Eating Local. 

When a box of food arrives on your doorstep on Thursday afternoon, it means so much more than just dinner for your family or Sunday morning breakfast. That box filled with vegetables and fruit, meat, pasta and eggs is the work of dozens of people in our community. From our staff that curates the box and develops the recipes to those that carefully pack and deliver your order. And of course there are the farmers, their harvesting crews, their packers and drivers, and the pasta makers, cheese makers, bread mixers, shapers and bakers.  

When you choose to Eat Local and therefore Shop Local, a much larger percentage of the money you spend stays directly in our community. Instead of half of your money going to a chain store’s national headquarters somewhere in the Midwest, those dollars are staying in our community and being distributed among your friends and neighbors – the farmers, cheese makers, bread shapers and box packers. 

And the cycle continues. Farmers like Anna and Geoff buy locally produced feed for their chickens or groceries for their families. Producer buy locally sourced ingredients like milk and flour and invest in needed equipment. Box packers pay rent and save money for college. All of these purchases support the jobs of even more people in our community having an even greater impact on our local economy.

Your weekly order makes this all possible.

~ Joy + Cara
