Mail order food gifts
Seeking quality mail order food gifts...anyone have a favorite they can recommend.
Last year I sent everyone a nice selection of country ham, sausage and bacon from Edwards Hams, in Surry, VA. We have a sentimental connection to them, because they're just a few miles from the Jamestown Ferry (which runs from Scotland Neck to Jamestown), that my husband and I have taken back and forth from his parents, to my parents, for decades. AND they're wonderful!
The year before, I sent everyone goody boxes of heirloom beans, hot sauce, and posole, from my FAVORITE online food retailer, Ranch Gordo (www.ranchogordo.com). Those were a big hit and my sisters are now repeat customers, too.
This year, I'm sending something made right here in Iowa, that's actually edible <g>: award-winning prosciutto samplers from http://www.laquercia.us/
My sister has sent us cheese selections from I Gourmet, and my other sister air-shipped me a wonderful bunch of cheese and fresh sausages from her local favorite, Di Bruno Brothers of Philadelphia.
AND I send out two other regional and sentimental favorites, Hubs Peanuts (my husband knows the family and went to school with their daughter) http://www.hubspeanuts.com/ ....and grapefruit from Pittman and Davis (http://www.pittmandavis.com/ ) from the Rio Grand Valley, where my mother grew up and where my brother lives, now...and where my grand daddy was a citrus inspector for the FDA back during the Depression.
All of these companies have excellent products, friendly staff, and wonderful service.
