About Hometown Harvest
Sprouted out of the comments of our friends and family, watered by the love of healthy eating, and grown by the passion of supporting local agriculture.
Since 2001, we have been deeply involved in local farming and agriculture.
After years of building and developing the family dairy business, we found ourselves discovering truths about the American diet, which ignited a fire in us to bring healthy local fruits/veggies to the market. We envisioned that we would deliver the produce in the back of my pick-up truck on the weekends as a way to teach our kids about hard work.
In June 2009, we worked with a handful of growers and made 250-300 deliveries every week. Now four years later, we are approaching 1,000 homes, workplaces, working with more than 150 trusted farms in our area.
Working with so many farmers allowed us to offer a wide variety of different fruits and veggies. Our delivery areas expanded to include counties in Maryland, Virginia, and DC. We now have four full-service "Veggie Vans".
In 2011, we expanded our product lines to provide a more complete farmers-market-at-your-door experience. We added fresh artisan breads, rolls, and pastries, which are all baked daily to order. We also introduced pickles, granola, plus gluten-free products to support folks with special diet needs.
Through the support of our customers, we've been able to include more local growers. We're helping them invest in season-extending, sustainable methods so we can eat fresh food year-round, and they have a reliable income.
