It all began in March, 2011, on a sandy beach in Florida when Jeanne Harned shared an idea with her daughter-in-law about starting a small farmers market business. Knowing her mother-in-law wasn’t a farmer and couldn’t sell produce, Meri replied, “What are WE making?” and a business venture was launched!
On May 14, 2011, they opened at the Binford Farmer’s Market, Indianapolis, IN and began to share their gourmet culinary delights. Jeanne’s husband, Bill, assumed a more active role in the business and soon bore the titles of CTO, Chief Tasting Official, and CLO, Chief Labeling Officer, and #1 Salesman.
The many flavors of Delicious Additions were inspired from over 30 years of making people smile with good food. The Harneds owned and operated the Hillside Inn in Madison, IN, which had 2 restaurants. Jeanne has also given cooking classes for 15 years.
In 2015, Jeanne and Bill decided it was time to pass the torch – and the canning jars, ladles and oven mitts. Rodney and Kim Lee are farmer’s market veterans, having operated a growing gourmet dog treat business since 2012, Maya’s Barkery.
Rodney and Kim have been diligently learning to handcraft the wonderful recipes Jeanne and Bill created. The Harneds will continue to work with Rodney and Kim through this transition to ensure the quality and excellence which you have come to expect from Delicious Additions products.
