Harvest2Homes meal subscription service moves to Wilton Mall – Saratogian
WILTON, NY – Local dining subscription service Harvest2Homes has a new headquarters and upcoming pickup location at Wilton Mall.
The company, owned by entrepreneur Kelsey Whalen, recently moved its culinary operations to a unit in the Wilton Mall food court.
Starting this spring, this site will also serve as a Harvest2Homes pickup location for area customers.
Whalen started the Harvest2Homes program about two years ago, around the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, as a way to provide healthy, local meals to the community.
From an online platform, subscribers can choose the meals they want each week based on their dietary preferences, with many vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.
The regularly changing menu is designed and prepared by Chef Jess Ethier of Harvest2Homes.
While the meals are health-focused, they’re also delicious, Whalen said. “You really can’t tell the difference.”
Harvest2Homes is focused on providing excellent food quality. “We make everything fresh, every day. Nothing is fixed. Nothing is pre-made,” Whalen said. “So on the day of your delivery, the meals are made the same morning.”
When the meal arrives, all components are fully prepared. “It’s all about you,” Whalen said.
The business currently has a maximum capacity of 100 families per week, allowing it to maintain such high food quality standards.
The base price is $10.50 per meal, with options to add vegetable protein or meat products from local farms.
Meals are delivered directly to customers’ doors weekly, and subscriptions can be suspended at any time.
Each meal comes in compostable packaging, so there’s no plastic waste.
Home delivery customers can order an insulated porch box, similar to a milk box, where meals can be dropped off each week.
In addition to prepared meals, Harvest2Homes has recently added cold-pressed organic juices and various “Farm Packs” containing basic groceries to its list of offerings. Farm Packs can contain a dozen pasture-raised Elihu Farm Eggs, Rockhill Bakery Farm Bread Pre-Sliced Sourdough Bread, Organic Saratoga Tea and Honey, Fair Trade Earl Gray Tea, and a jar of Laurie’s Jam.
These items can be delivered with a subscriber’s weekly meals.
Soon, a “Grill Pack” including marinated vegetables and meats as well as larger ready meals will be available this spring.
Over the past two years, the Harvest2Homes service has proven popular. It now offers contactless delivery within a 30-mile radius, in most of the Capital Region, including Saratoga Springs, Queensbury, Glens Falls, Albany and Troy.
Going forward, with the company settled into its new home, Whalen plans to open a second hub in the Albany area as Harvest2Homes’ customer base continues to grow.
New Harvest2Homes customers can use code FIRSTDELIVERY for a first week of free meals.
