Let's Be Thankful for Local Food!

The Thanksgiving holiday is a perfect time for family and friends to come together over dishes of fresh, local food. Green Umbrella has gathered a list of where to find local ingredients for your Thanksgiving meal.

We have highlighted Green Umbrella members with bold text below.

Order Local Online from a Food Hub

Both Our Harvest Cooperative and Local Food Connection have online platforms to help you get ready for the holiday. Simply order online, choose a pick-up location, and pick up your local sweet potatoes, squash, celery, broth, and more before Thanksgiving! 


How-To: Order online from Our Harvest Cooperative and choose between 17 pick-up locations. Register as a Household Purchaser on Local Food Connection and choose items for your basket from over 50 local farms.

Local Turkey

Here are local sources for fresh, farm-raised turkey. Be sure to contact the farm or market in advance to reserve the size bird that would meet your needs. 

  • Tewes Farm is a family farm that's the only fresh poultry producer in Northern Kentucky. Thanksgiving orders are taken by online form.
  • TS Farms in New Vienna, OH offers pasture raised turkeys available to pick up at several locations. Order online.
  • If you are thinking ahead to 2019, you can also check out Greenacres Farm's Farm Store,  Finn Meadows Farm, and Gorman Heritage Farm, all of whom are sold out for 2018.

Source Produce from Year-Round Farmers Markets

Many farmers markets sell produce throughout the year and can be great sources for holiday (or everyday) ingredients and gifts. Stop by one of the following farmers markets before the big day.


We wish you a happy holiday full of fresh, local food!
