Remember, Billy Vee’s is open year round Wednesday – Saturday. Choosing to eat local is one of the best ways to support Early Morning Harvest and the whole local economy.

Andrew here, this is my last week working (full time) for Early Morning Harvest. It was three years ago in November that I started out here, it was just over two years ago that we started this weekly email. I only planned on working here a year before moving out to Colorado, but plans changed. I’ve enjoyed everyone in Panora and Stuart, I’ve enjoyed the CSA, and local food production business. Jeff, Earl, and Ronda have been the best people I could possibly hope to work for, and they have all been a huge blessing in my life, as well as all the people I’ve been blessed to work with in these last three years. Thank you all for being a part of this and for supporting this businesses growth.
