It’s Licking County Local Food Week, and River Road is Celebrating!
Licking County is celebrating its first annual Local Food Week, and we at River Road are quite excited!! In fact, from August 16th through August 22nd, River Road Coffeehouses Granville and Newark are offering all our customers Hartzler Milk in their hot or iced specialty drinks for no upcharge!! What is Hartzler milk, and why is it special? The Hartzler Family Dairy, located in Wooster, Ohio, grazes cows freely in pasture where they consume green grass during warm weather months. The milk is non-homogenized (you might see some cream separated from the rest of the milk….this is normal!), and it is pasteurized at low temperatures to preserve healthy enzymes while killing harmful bacteria.
Additionally, did you know that River Road Coffeehouse offers many local products on a regular basis? At Granville, our muffins and scones are made by Lucky Cat Bakery, we carry delicious Granville Gourmet Whoopie Pies, and we sell chocolates from Newark’s Created In Splendor. At both stores, we sell our wonderful biscotti made by Susie Pisano, gluten-free items from Gluten Free Expressions, Old-Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls by ToddleSquat Bakery, and our Coffee is roasted by Licking County’s only commercial coffee roaster (One Line Coffee). In addition, our Wiggin Street Coffee store in Gambier, Ohio, makes all our hummus, stromboli, chicken and tuna salad, and our cookies.
