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.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Neighborhood Harvest has seen a sharp spike in delivery orders since the coronavirus pandemic began.
  • The Neighborhood Harvest now makes about 400 deliveries to Williamsburg each week, and about 800 weekly deliveries to its entire service area.
  • The Neighborhood Harvest has added new employees — many from area restaurants that have closed during the pandemic — and a variety of new products.

“The Neighborhood Harvest delivers organic produce, meats, dairy and more from local small businesses and farms.”
