How about this for pivoting in real time?? ... This morning (Tuesday...the day we go get all the food), we get a call from 2 people that we are counting on getting food from for every box. Both crops failed because of how hot it is right now. So we gather around the “water cooler” and have an impromptu, "what should replace this with because it’s too late to reach out to try and get more food??"
Even if we did get ahold of a grower, and even if they did happen to have something in the field that would work, it would take them a day to harvest it and we would have to go out and get it tomorrow...which isn’t possible because we have to make deliveries tomorrow and also pack boxes for the next day which we wouldn’t be able to do because we were out picking the food up that was supposed to be in those boxes, and round and round we go.
In the end, as always, it ends up being fine... just another day in the life of our local food community.
Here are the random things that I want you to know about this week
1.We are including one of our brochures in every box this week so that you can pass it along to a friend or family member. There is a coupon code that they can use at the bottom. If they list you as a referral, you BOTH get $10 added to your account to use however you choose.
2.MEAT BUNDLES are up and can be added to your delivery NEXT WEEK!
(Just Click the Pic and it will take you right there)
It's time to put some meat in your freezer and hunker down.
Many of you have asked about WINTER and how it will work this year.
We are still finalizing the details but it will be ready to roll out to everyone in the next week.
UNTIL THEN...just remember that we will continue to deliver each week as always, all the way through the week of Nov 18th (the week before Thanksgiving). I just ordered some goodies today for that last box where we will give you everything you need to be the star at your “Friends-giving”, “Thanksgiving Day”, or even your “In-Laws who don’t know a turkey from a hole in the ground” dinners.
