HarvestMarket Co-op

A little over a year ago, my family started a food co-op here in Utah called HarvestMarket Co-op.

Side note: HarvestMarket is a great place to get delicious, fresh produce at a great price in Utah County. Check it out!

It has been a crazy learning experience especially considering I am very averse to even the smallest business risk.

Over the year, they've been trying to grow the business, but growth has been slow and instead of breaking even as they'd hoped, costs such as the website were making it a burden. Because of the pace and cost we had a family council a few weeks ago regarding whether or not we wanted to continue to offer the co-op.

And, despite the challenges everyone said let's continue. One of the biggest challenges in order to continue however was creating a website that was functional, professional, and ready to go by July 30th--rather than pay an arm and a leg to have it produced by another company.

So, many, many, many hours later, I am happy to present the new HarvestMarket Co-op website (, designed by me with a little help from Blogger and a fabulous Word Press template.

I am pretty impressed with myself, especially considering this was made by a complete novice.

But, novice no longer because I'm signed up for some Java/HTML/CSS classes to learn more!
