Question: I own a newer company and we’re just starting out. Can you work with us?
Absolutely! Iowa Choice Harvest caters to growing businesses and entrepreneurs, we offer custom co-processing and, unlike most larger processing services, can accommodate small batches, test runs or other custom jobs. Our recommended minimum run is one production day, but are always open to discussing your unique project and guide you in finding the best solution that fits your needs..
Question: What’s it like to work with Iowa Choice Harvest?
Easy! Iowa Choice Harvest was founded by 13 Iowa farmers who wanted to expand opportunities for farmers to market their fruits and vegetables while building a strong local food system that provides quality products. They also remember a simpler time when many of the best deals were made with a handshake and a smile. That’s still the way we do business today–friendly, fair, honest–it’s just that simple. Our goal is to foster a growing partnership, not just one-hit wonders. Working with with us is truly like working with a member of your own family because we care about our customers as if they were family.
Question: How much does it cost?
Our pricing is transparent. While each project is unique you will never question what you’ve been charged for or why, there will be no hidden fees, no surprises – lots of communication and transparency. We’ll walk you through our services then work together to find a solution that matches your budget and meets your goals.
