There are times when one just knows the fit is right. And that awareness came from both directions pretty much at the same time.
Andrew Hollister, a new NFC producer, has been singing NFC’s praises. Just some of Andrew’s recent comments to our staff:
“By the way, I am blown away that I got orders this first week on the site. I was not expecting any at all. So for me to have sold multiple items more than met my expectations out of the gate.”
“…nothing was harvested that wasn’t already sold. Greatly reducing over harvesting.”
“Glad to be adding more to the NFC family. Really, I firmly believe in what you guys do for everyone involved.”
“It still amazes me how well your site connects producers and consumers. Just wonderful. I will continue to try to be your best spokesperson as I strongly agree with your concept and design.”
And then Andrew posted this gem on the NSAS list-serv: “I know there are a lot of producers out there like me who don’t have a lot of time to be at the markets. So I just wanted to share that we found Nebraska Food Coop and have products selling out in the first week. On-the-farm pickup from the delivery truck and only a small annual fee to participate. I am not getting paid or anything to mention this, I just want to let more people know that it exists.”
Finding a strong supporter of NFC’s model, the General Manager recommended him for an Advisory Board member role to which the board immediately agreed.
So welcome, Andrew! It’s great to have you on board!
