Our newsletter from 02-03-2012
I want to personally thank all of you for your patience over the past week with our delivery times. Our delivery times range from 7 am to 8 p.m. but generally we do like to have them all done by 5:00 p.m. I know that wasn’t neccesarily the case for all of you this past week, and again I truly appreciated your patience. This week we have made a few changes so everyone should have their order by 5 on Wednesdays. Superstars, that is what you are!
SO…WHERE YA FROM???
It’s a question I got a lot this week, and not about me personally. Y’all want to know where your produce comes from. yay! I love people that are interested in their food and where it comes from. I now have the origins of the produce in your box listed on the website for your review. You will see a state or country listed after each item. Want to know even more? Shoot me an email, I love talking food. Oh, and the absolute middle of nowhere, a town of 600. That is where I was born and raised. You know, just in case you were asking. 😉
ITEM OF THE WEEK!
Thank you all that donated socks last week. I dropped off your donations yesterday and they were soooo grateful. Also, thanks to your patronage, we were able to drop off some produce as well. The kids loved the blood oranges. Check out our facebook page for a picture of Jenny, the youth director of Hope House. To me, she was a ray of sunshine in a dark place. She is so dedicated to helping the homeless and underprivileged children of Milwaukee.
This week “item of the week” is soap. Got some to donate? Leave it in your cooler and when we drop off your produce we will pick it up. We will send it over to the Hope House to be distributed to the homeless.
Cooking something up in your kitchen that I should attempt to replicate or be jealous of? Shoot the recipe over to me, and if we feature it on our blog we’ll give you Rockstar status AND a free small box of produce.
We invite you to celery stalk us on our blog (www.brewersorganics.com/blog). If you aren’t getting an order but you want to stay up to date on this newsletter, you can find it there. And if the pesky little thing we call weather causes drama in the fields, and we have to make change to the contents of the boxes, you can read about it on the blog.
If you aren’t going to be home during the day on Wednesday, don’t worry, even if there are flurries. (Although, how about this warm weather, huh?) Just leave a cooler out for us to put your produce into. When you get home, you will have organic deliciousnes on your door step.
Oh, Brewers Organics Foodies. You are the apples of my eye, you make me smile until my face hurts, I bless your pea pickin hearts. With that said: If we need to swim a moat, slay a dragon, knock down castle walls, and save a princess to get you your delivery, we will do our best to make that happen. However, if you give us a heads up we can make sure to put on our hero gear on your delivery day. So please- update your delivery instructions if you live behind iron gates, have a doorman, a front desk, entrance is hard to find, we need a code to get into your building, or a rooster that might chase us.
Cheers and Happy Organic Eats!
