Local Amish Holiday Gift Baskets: Delivered!

Ashley’s Food Delivery, Sarasota’s only multi-restaurant delivery service, has teamed up with local Amish restaurant Troyer’s Dutch Heritage to offer locally made gift baskets available for delivery this holiday season. Ideal for personal and corporate gift giving, these food-filled baskets reflect the traditional heritage and old-fashioned charm of Sarasota’s local Amish community.
“Troyer’s gift baskets offer true local flavor with homemade baked goods and home-style delicacies produced right here in Sarasota, making a truly unique gift,” says Liz Sniegocki, co-owner of Ashley’s Food Delivery. “With delivery available to homes and offices throughout the area, they are also a convenient gift option, perfect for clients, friends and family. Plus, gift givers have the satisfaction of knowing they are supporting our local economy with their purchases.”

The Troyer’s Heritage Basket features 100 percent locally made treats from the Troyer’s Dutch Heritage bakery and restaurant, as well as a copy of the newly-published Heritage Favorites cookbook, a collection of family recipes from Troyer’s employees. Included is a small homemade pie, home-style fudge, fresh granola, apple butter, jam, old-fashioned candies and more.
Also available for delivery are the Troyer’s Brunch Basket (filled with home-style goodies including homemade sweet bread & cookies, coffee, tea, two ceramic Troyer’s mugs, jelly, fruit mix, homemade peanut butter, candy and more) and the Troyer’s Party Basket (a sampling of Amish delights including a summer sausage, a cheese round, pretzels & crackers and Amish dressings & dips).In addition to Troyer’s gift baskets, Ashley’s is also delivering a variety of baskets and sweet gift items from Peterbrooke Chocolatier.
