Hey there,
 
Thank you so much for your past support of the Suwanee Whole Life Co-op! In 2018, we'll be partnering with Fresh Harvest to create an entirely new experience for co-op members. Here are a few of the recent changes:
  • Wednesday delivery day
  • Extended pick-up hours (1:00pm to 6:30pm)
  • 15% off Fresh Harvest produce baskets for co-op members
  • Address: 1300 Peachtree Industrial, Suite 1104 Suwanee, GA 30024
  • Co-op website: suwanee.locallygrown.net
Since 2012, Fresh Harvest has delivered fresh, organic produce, milk, meat, eggs, and more from local sources that do things "the right way". They're committed to Greater Atlanta specifically, hoping to connect our community with local farms in a meaningful way. To hear a bit more about them & learn how to sign-up, see below.
 
Thanks so much!
Connecting with Local, Organic Farms
 
We love shaking hands with the same Georgia farmers every week who use sustainable growing practices to ensure the land is enriched and not depleted.  They help us keep the process simple and increase transparency around food.  They literally walk out in the field, tell us what's growing, and harvest and deliver it the next week!
 
This model helps eliminate food waste (we hold no inventory) and you receive incredibly fresh produce harvested within a day or two, all while supporting local farmers.
Greater Atlanta Deliveries Only
 
Food delivery has evolved dramatically in the last 5 years and has seemingly become the norm.  While most companies ship food across the country, we are committed to building a local, ethical food hub here in Greater Atlanta.
The Fresh Harvest Garden
 
With our own garden space in Clarkston, we're not only the distributor of your food - we're one of the growers as well.  Our garden opens up opportunities for customers to attend farm dinners, cooking demonstrations, and volunteer events to build community.
 
Based in Clarkston, a refugee resettlement town, job creation has become a big part of who we are.  Of the 23 people who work at Fresh Harvest, 11 are refugees who were resettled from countries all over the world.  We host our weekly Share the Harvest market in Clarkston that you support simply by being a FH Customer!

For us, it's more than delivering fresh, beautiful produce to you each week. We want to foster a community that promotes "doing good"--whether it's supporting small-scale farms that we believe in, creating jobs for our refugee neighbors in Clarkston, or simply inviting you to come and share a meal with us at the Fresh Harvest garden.  We're excited to get to know you!
