February Recap 2023 | A month of new!

February | Still in the heart of winter, February turned into being a “month of new” for Shawnee as a whole!

Unsure of what that means? Let’s dive back into the month and reflect on everything we got into just in the last 30 days!

Overall, all of the “new” for Shawnee can be divided into new adventures with the cannery and new products for the markets! First, the cannery team spends a lot of time in the off season connecting with farmers all across the US at various vegetable, produce and agritourism conventions. These shows were held in North Carolina, Texas, California, Pennsylvania, New York and Georgia. We met a ton of new farmers and were able to share our products with them to sample, in hopes of business networking.

Next, looking back at February, we rolled out two new lines of products at both of our market locations! First, we proudly welcomed a new line of dairy products by South Mountain Creamery! This grass-fed dairy is based in Maryland and does an incredible job producing top quality milk + ice cream whole being known for their signature glass bottle. Find their products stocked at both our Cross Junction and Winchester Markets.

“We stopped to get a pie on our way back to NY state. I decided to order my husband an Alexander the Great sandwich and Whitacre turkey, cheese and bacon sandwich. They were so large and delicious! My husband can’t wait to come back. Best Sandwiches ever!”
