Local Farm Report Fresh Veggies

What a Peach! Locally Grown Farm Report

Peaches are here and we couldn’t be more excited! After a few years of ho-hum peach crops due to extremely cold winter temps, this year’s bounty is on-track to knock it out of the park. Our peaches are sourced from the Fruit Grower’s Co-op who gather the fruit from a variety of Ohio farms. This week sees fruit from Peace Valley Orchard in Rogers, Ohio and Norkus Orchards in Salem, Ohio. So get out your favorite peach recipe (Peach Basil Bellini anyone?) and stock up!

Did you know around mid-summer a large portion of our produce section is locally grown? Look for a large display of local produce in the front of the Produce Department at your Heinen’s, as well as signs on other local fruit and veggies throughout. While we carry Local Produce year-round, our Produce Department transforms into a local Farmer’s Market each summer thanks to our relationships with our Ohio farmers (some of whom have been supplying us with tasty fruits and veggies for three generations!)

We’ll keep you updated on what’s available from these and other farms as the season goes on with your Locally Grown Farm Report! (Availability may vary from store to store depending on weather conditions and demand.)
