The Neighborhood Harvest, a local farming company, has seen a spike in business during the COVID-19 pandemic. Data shows that they delivered over 800 weekly shipments to the northeastern Virginia-area since the beginning of April, as opposed to 400 weekly shipments before the pandemic. A company spokesperson says this growth is due to the need for food during stay-at-home orders and due to the development of new products. The growth of The Neighborhood Harvest stood the test of this brief economic recession.
