Updates from your favorite produce company in the whole wide world.

It’s time to add a little Toffee to your order…

We have just tasted the BEST. TOFFEE. EVER!

So we decided to add it to our market place for YOU… just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Toffee in Pan

It’s locally made by our friends at a specialty food company called “Together,” and so we present to you “Together Toffee.”

Together creates opportunities to savor moments and express gratitude by creating delicious foods, and their first product is Toffee!

The best thing about Together Toffee is its simplicity and all natural, gluten-free ingredients.

4 Flavors

The sweet cream butter is directly from Oregon.  Ten pound Guittard chocolate bars are shaved to sandwich the buttery toffee on either side.  The final garnishes are freshly roasted and salted nuts, brought in from other Western states including Arizona and California.

Just delicious. 

Click here to add it to your box this week (perfect for Valentine’s Day!). and enjoy every last bite.

Stay organically connected!

All hands on Deck!

All hands on Deck!

It was a real team effort last week. With John manning the Internet, Michael spreading the word about the company through advertising and Facebook, Thomas behind the wheel. Myself, I was doing a little driving, a lot of produce ordering and interviewing new drivers to find the perfect fit for the PCH family. It had been awhile since all of us were working at the same time and it was cool to watch how the company can grow with all of us chipping in as needed.

Last week saw the last of Washington Lettuce. We had hoped to squeeze a few more weeks in, but Mother Nature had other ideas. This week we had no less then 10 different squashes to choose from. As if I need more of a reminder fall was coming.

One thing that we are grateful for though are cooler temperatures. It’s been quite the challenge getting your greens to your doorstep looking like how we got them. One change is we now order just for one day. All our produce arrives between 11am and 2pm. From there it’s a mad rush to pack and have them in the vans by 7. We try to have an empty unit for next days farm fresh load. If you’ve ever thrown anything on an anthill you have a good idea of what 2-7 looks like for us.

Thanks to the growth we’ve experienced we’ve now been able to bring on two more drivers. Spencer and Casey. They’ll make a great addition to the team and I’m sure will make sure your produce arrives safe and sound the following morning.

That’s it for this week.  Its going to be another whirlwind week but as small business owners these are the weeks we all dream about.

Weekly Update

Hi Friends!

 

We had quite the week! Thanks to your awesome support we had our biggest week yet. As some of you know we had to recycle some cucumber boxes as a replacement. I even ended up getting behind the wheel for a route this week. So if your box wasn’t in the usual spot it was probably me.  Luke has more boxes on the way though, so things should be back to normal next week.

 On Thursday Tylor let me know Tahoma Farm would have a very limited quantity of Starkrimson Pears and Golden Plums. I’m happy to say I was able to grab half of the supply. We also are trying out some watermelons in the Washington boxes. I’m a little nervous about how we are going to pack them, but once we get them to your door I’m sure they will be delicious!

 Looking ahead we are adding another driver or two, so if you know anyone who might be interested let them know. We also are redesigning the home page so be on the lookout for that.

 That’s all for this week. Have a safe and relaxing weekend… Oh ya and GO SEAHAWKS!!

Happy Labor Day!

Hi Friends,

Here’s what we hope will be the start of regular PCH updates.  We will try to bring you all the latest news from the company, what to expect from farms in the upcoming weeks, and any exciting news in the organic produce community.

First off, we want to thank Davey and George for their fantastic job driving this summer. We wish them the best at college. I will definitely miss our banter during packing. With that in mind, we want to welcome Peter to the PCH family! Peter is a great guy who is eager to be working for the company. Be sure to let us know how he’s doing so we can make sure he quickly reaches the level we expect from your drivers.

More great news out of Sanford farm! After talking to Jeremy, we will now be getting fresh, local veggies from his green house this winter. We here at PCH are excited about the chance to bring unique produce to break up the usual Washington Winter root veggie routine.

Last, but certainly not least, we are proud to announce the return of a familiar face. Our trusty old manager John will be back helping us on some fun changes to the website. John will be making sure the web knows just how awesome PCH really is!

So that’s it for this week. But be sure to drop us an email to let us know how we’re doing. Also, if you want us blog more about something, or would like to see more fun recipes, we are always happy to hear from you.

Have a happy, safe Labor Day.
