Florida’s mild winters mean a bounty harvest year round for our Berry Good Farms, but this week the most popular item are our spice mixes.
That’s because VyStar Credit Union ordered almost five thousand of the packets with our two flavors of ranch dressing mix and dipping oil spices. “It’s the biggest order I’ve seen since I’ve been here,” says Berry Good Farms Manager.” We’ve got all hands on deck to get this order in on time by the end of next week.”
Berry Good Farms has been labor lucky with this project as volunteers aided the effort of our Transition students to fill the spice packs. Assembling the flavorful packets takes a pefect mixture of ingredients measured out to the gram. Not doing it perfectly will impact its taste.
Already one of our Barkin’ Biscuits customers, VyStar intends to give the packets to employees and credit union members. “That’s great for getting out Berry Good Farms brand out there,” adds Williams. “I have a feeling when they include it in their recipes that they’ll even be more impressed with the results.”
On Thursday, VyStar’s Communications team was at Berry Good Farms to do a profile on the order and our students. We’ll make sure to share it with you when it’s completed.
