BizBrief: Horse & Buggy adds boxes
Horse & Buggy Produce, the area's largest exclusively local food purveyor, is giving time-conscious customers something new this season: pre-boxed produce. "A certain segment of our subscribers who really desired the convenience of a pre-boxed share," says company owner Brett Wilson. "So we're going to pack it up so they can grab it and go." Founded in 2006 and based on Valley Mennonite-grown produce, Horse & Buggy celebrates its fifth season this year, and the new service carries a fee about $3.75 per week. Wilson offers one caveat: "We're probably not going to put the watermelons in the box."
