What better way to spend Valentine’s Day with your partner than with a romantic local produce gift basket, a cheese board at home, or a private dining experience with a few of your favorite couples? We’ve collaborated with many of the Berry Good Food Foundation’s friends to offer a 2019 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide. They have donated experiences and food items that bring us close to the source for local and sustainable products, strengthen the community through shared experiences, and encourage us to look for relationships instead of labels. All proceeds from the purchased items below go toward the programs of the Berry Good Food Foundation. We look forward to growing stronger with you in 2019!
