FINAL FOUR Cheese Madness matchup:
Comté vs. Irish Coolea

Coolea is a cow's milk cheese produced on the farm of Dick and Sinead Willems in Coolea Co. Cork. Made since 1979, this Gouda style cheese has a yellow / orange wax with firm, closed texture and smooth pate. As the cheese matures, the pate becomes drier and finally the protein crystals are visible at 18 months of maturity.

Comté was one of the first few cheeses to receive an AOC (Appellation d'origine controlee) status in 1958. It is one of the most popular AOC cheeses in France with around 40,000 tones of annual production. ... See more

This weekend, the (cheese) madness continues!
FINAL FOUR Matchup:
Red Dragon vs. Rosa Maria or Old Amsterdam (postponed Elite 8 matchup will be determined on Friday)

Red Dragon: The moist yet firm Red Dragon is aged for 3 months and made from pasteurized cow's milk and vegetable rennet. The mustard seeds not only give it a unique texture but also an amazing buttery and spicy flavor. Along with the subtle sharpness of mustard seeds, the flavor of Red Dragon is also reminiscent of the mild, sharp taste of the Welsh ale and traditional cheddar.

Hey travelers!

Capital Campaign

FIN MOO
Thursday, January 24th
5:30 PM – 7:00 PM
Mercy City Church, 1430 South St.

Letter from the Board

January 5, 2019

Dear Open Harvest Co-op Owner:

We have new, exciting plans to improve and enhance the store in 2019! These plans include a renovated deli area to improve customer experience; more in-store seating to allow for gathering of community; Also, an upgrade to a heating/cooling unit and a new vestibule at the front of the store to help with customer comfort and increase energy efficiency.

To that end, the Open Harvest Board of Directors approved a capital campaign to raise $200,000 in owner investments through preferred shares. Preferred shares are dividend-bearing investments in the co-op’s equity. Members can purchase these non-voting shares to build capital and equity for the co-op and in return, receive a competitive rate on that investment through dividends.

At our recent Annual Owner Meeting, owners voted to amend the bylaws in ways that allow the co-op to raise capital via preferred shares. Now we must take one more similar, yet crucial step and amend our articles of incorporation in order to provide dividends on preferred shares. The Board of Directors approved this amendment at its December 2018 meeting, and now your vote is needed to amend the articles of incorporation.

The Board recommends and requests your vote to approve the proposed amendment to the articles of incorporation. We also invite you to attend a special meeting of members at Mercy City Church (1430 South St.) on Thursday, January 24th at 5:30 p.m. where the official vote will occur. Enclosed is a mail ballot to either return to the store or bring with you to the meeting. After the vote, we’ll share more about the capital campaign, preferred shares, and our plans to keep Open Harvest thriving, inviting, and viable in an increasingly competitive market.

Please vote and join us on January 24th, and let’s grow our co-op together.

In cooperation,

Megan Jackson, Board Chair

Open Harvest Board of Directors
