American Harvest – Peshastin, WA
American Harvest, a Wenatchee Valley cannabis retailer in Peshastin offers tourists and locals from the area a warm and welcoming place to peruse an assortment of cannabis products. Kelani Mirau and her family thought about the setting when designing American Harvest: they opted to design the shop with an abundance of open space, not unlike a comfy barn, where locally-grown goodies are happily sold. The boutique-style, farm-to-table ambiance in the shop fits perfectly with Central Washington’s agriculture traditions, especially in a place known for the state’s highest apple production. The shop sits right outside Leavenworth, a popular Bavarian village where polka parties and oompah music never stop. So, if you’re visiting Leavenworth this fall or happen to be celebrating the annual tradition of Oktoberfest stop by American Harvest and see what this quaint Peshastin store has to offer.
American Harvest’s inventory has been thoroughly vetted by the staff, which often includes visiting local cannabis farms to learn about their growing methods and “[check in on] how happy the plants are,” Mirau said. The shop offers a wide variety of products for those looking to alternate their consumption methods … you’ll find more than flower at American Harvest. Mirau is especially proud of the team’s focus on helping customers with their medical needs, not just those who want to get mellow during Oktoberfest or the Christmas lighting. Two state-certified medical marijuana consultants, including Mirau and Melissa Reynerson, are always happy to educate patients about options for pain management as well as a myriad of other wellness needs. Consultants are on hand to provide additional information or videos about alternatives to pharmaceuticals for those looking to expand their knowledge base.
Most of the employees of American Harvest are locals, so they understand the needs and wants of their regulars. More often than not, they know their customers by name, having attended school, played sports, skied, worked or shopped alongside them in this tight-knit community. The first name basis culture instantly creates a great sense of trust and loyalty that’s reinforced by superior service. Mirau says much of the staff has been employed at American Harvest since its inception, making the staff a valuable commodity in Mirau’s eyes. She wants to make sure everyone always feels appreciated, so she focuses on creating a fun work environment that also includes full medical benefits.
