Hickory Farms has been part of the holiday season for me and for my family for years. It’s a tradition that helps us begin celebrating and enjoying this special time of year from Thanksgiving to Christmas and continues through New Years Eve. When I see Hickory Farms open at the mall, it gets me in the holiday spirit and brings back memories of sharing good food with my family and giving gifts to those we love.
More Than Sausage and Cheese
Although Hickory Farms is known for its delicious sausage and cheese, there’s other food items that you can purchase for yourself or for others. Fresh fruit, fudge, nuts, crackers, tea, condiments, cookies, dried fruit and peanut brittle are part of the Hickory Farms brand too. You can purchase baskets, boxes, tins, towers and single items. And every items has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Below is the Orchard’s Bounty Gift Basket:
Military Holiday Gifts
When I met my husband, he was in the military and stationed out of state. During the holidays, I learned that Hickory Farms was a welcomed gift because it came with memories of home and love. Hickory Farms understands that and has a special section of military gifts. Free shipping is offered to APO and FPO addresses to help military families send a loved one that special gift. Act fast! You can still order through December 10th for military personnel who are not in combat zones. One of the military gift is the Warm and Hearty Welcome Gift Boxes (below):
$3 – 3 Day Shipping
Hickory Farms guarantees freshness. Hickory Farms gifts are hand packed and guaranteed to arrive in 3 business days or less at a flat rate of only $3 all season long. I don’t know of many mail order companies that do that, especially those that handle the number of orders that Hickory Farms handles.
As Hickory Farms celebrates its 60th Anniversary this year, it continues to work at meeting and beating customer expectations. For example, their “Signature Summer Sausage was recently rated the #1 Summer Sausage in America, winning the Masters of Taste Gold Medal for Superior Taste.” 25 more locations have opened in the US, including one in Manhattan to reach more customers in person. And their online sales have continued to grow.
Their Facebook page is just one example of their commitment to customer service. You’ll see how concerns are handled and how new items are shared. I had an issue with the Orchard’s Bounty Gift Basket I received. Instead of mixed nuts, there was a bag of trail mix, so I was sent out a brand new basket, no questions asked.
I’m always a fan of companies that care and do something tangibile. Hickory Farms is doing just that by contributing $5 to Share Our Strength®, a not-for-profit organization working to end childhood hunger in North America for every Party Planner gift box purchased. Customers will also have the opportunity to include a $1 donation to the campaign with their purchase at a Hickory Farms store or at hickoryfarms.com. So far, Hickory Farms pass has raised more than $1.1M in contributions to Share Our Strength since 2008. They company wants to raise an additional $700,000 this holiday season. Think about this when you make your purchase this year please.
Hickory Farms has been on my holiday gift list for years. What began as a tradition has continued because of the great food, fantastic selection and wonderful customer service.
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Hickory Farms and received a product sample to facilitate my review. I also received a product directly from Hickory Farms for review. All opinions are my own.
