“ When you have the best and tastiest ingredients, you can cook very simply and the food will be extraordinary because it tastes like what it is.” – Alice Waters
Where and how consumers get their food has changed a lot not only in 2021, but also more than ever before. Some may have memories of harvesting their own food with their families, while others may remember their weekly grocery trips or easy prep meals that brought everyone to the dinner table. A popular way that people get their food in the current day is a meal plan service. Companies like HelloFresh and Blue Apron reported 46% growth in 2021. With people staying at home during the pandemic, looking for convenience with their busy lifestyles and finding comfort in delicious food, this comes as no surprise.
At Great Country Farms, we are excited to make meal planning simple and healthy by offering a farm fresh, locally grown meal kit to our customers. Our new Farm to Table Meal Kit harvest boxes are taking the planning off your plate while keeping your food homemade and grown right here in Loudoun County, Va.
While the days get shorter and we turn inward for winter, eating and preparing seasonal foods helps keep our bodies healthy and strong. Choosing nutrient dense, local foods for your family boosts immune systems and brings fresher foods into your home. We implement no-till practices in our fields that we couple with regenerative methods of spreading compost and rotating our animals through the fields to help increase nutrient stores in the soil. This gives our produce an increased nutrient density over conventionally grown vegetables.
The meal kits we have curated this fall harvest are sure to bring joy in preparation and satisfaction around the table. Our step by step instructions make it easy for the chef of the house to prepare and our specially selected ingredients will have even the pickiest eaters begging for seconds.
Now you can skip the stress of shipping your food by purchasing meals from your local farmer. Choosing locally grown foods is friendly to the environment and economy, but most importantly, better for your health. Our kits feature produce grown with regenerative culture practices and 100% grass fed, estate meats from our herd. These nutritious and delicious foods can help to keep your body healthy and strong as cold and flu season approaches. It is hard to believe, but there are only a few weeks left in our 2021 growing season here in northern Virginia. We invite you to bundle up and come enjoy the fresh air while you roam our 12+ acre play area, visit our barnyard friends, and stock up on local foods for the winter ahead from our farm market. These Farm to Table Harvest Meal kits are available for purchase on our online market or in store during your visit.
We hope to see you on the farm and look forward to nourishing your family and soul.
