Early Morning Harvest News & Updates – January 6, 2016

early morning harvest news letter organic produce, iowa
Hi all,

We are back to our regular delivery schedule. Stuart on Wednesday’s, Panora of Thursday’s

Today we should be picking up corn relish, hot pepper relish, and peach salsa from Backyard Flavors. You can order ahead if you like.

Eggs: Good and bad news, the good news: We’ve sold way more eggs this year than any of the previous years, our flock is about 15% larger this year than last year, we made a pretty good run without expiring any eggs, and soon, our inventory problems should be done.
The bad news: Our biggest customer, The Iowa Food Coop, isn’t picking up again until January 28th.
Between now and January 30th, we have: 52 dozen extra large eggs, 70 dozen large eggs and only about 11 dozen medium.
We’re going to do a two price scale, a sale price on eggs expiring between January 8th and January 30th, and regular price on eggs expiring after the 30th. First come, first serve, this offer is also being given to some wholesalers, so they will likely go quickly. The vast majority of the sale eggs expire after January 16th, but we won’t seperate them any further than just “on sale” or not on sale.
