2021 December Holiday Meal!

Hi friends of PlantBase! We have once again created a lovely expansive holiday menu to take all the effort out of holidays or supplement your own lovely efforts. But this year is a bit different for us. It’s set to be a deciding, defining season for us moving forward.

This year we have faced more challenges than ever, and somehow managed to mostly limp through. Right now as this is posted, we are coming off an unplanned 5 week period where we were unable to produce a single item because our commissary moved and faced delays for all sorts of reasons that we had no control over at all. This is proving to be a layered, frustrating challenge. We know for certain we have an amazing fall winter season ahead, so that is our focus: to provide a 12th consecutive year of holiday feast perfection!

While we never would apply any pressure and only wish for the support that is reasonable for you, we need to finish this year with strong sales to be able to re-point and re-emerge in 2022. This is to try and make up for the hours that our dedicated staff missed, and the weeks of shortages that interrupted our usual process and cost us a lot more in loss than we are able to absorb right now. There may be a first-time ask of further support via an awesome campaign from us in the New Year, but right now, we want to focus on finishing the year with focus and resilience.

We’d love it if you ordered your Holiday Meal from us, make orders from the website toward your winter holiday celebrations, gift people our products, and just generally help share this amazing menu. If you’ve eaten it, you know that there is no better holiday spread as far as truly gourmet local foods goes!

Thanks so kindly for your support in the past and in the present,

David Isbister and the Team @ PlantBase
