Home Grown Organic Foods signs off

End of an era

via Facebook

After 15 years in the organic food delivery business, and a year-and-a-half after opening its 2310 Gottingen Street storefront, Home Grown Organic Foods dropped off its final food boxes on December 22 and announced it was closing up shop for good.

In a newsletter HGOF's founder and owner Geordie Ouchterlony wrote:

As much as we believe in the health benefits of organic produce for people and the environment, sadly, our move to Gottingen St has not been embraced altogether by the North End Halifax community. Despite our competitive pricing and abundance of parking in a neighborhood that has been described as a food desert, retail sales of fresh, organic produce in store have been extremely disappointing over the past year and a half.

Ouchterlony encourages those interested in the buying the business, or leasing the space to contact him at geordie@hgof.ns.ca.
