I usually buy all of my produce at Whole Foods (although I do try to support my local non-chain health food store when I can), but I love the idea of supporting local organic farms. One way to do this is to shop your local farmers markets, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out timing wise. I had tried my local CSA delivery service the summer before Miles was born, but I ended up wasting a lot cause they would include things that I either didn’t know how to prepare easily or didn’t love to eat, not to mention I had to pick it up which wasn’t always convenient. So I canceled that service and for the last year and a half have just continued buying my fruits and veggies at Whole Foods. I have been keeping my eyes and ears open for another option and I finally found a great one! Farm Fresh To You. Unlike many produce delivery services who buy produce from a warehouse and repack it, Farm Fresh To You have been growing organic produce on their own farm since 1976. What is great about them is that not only do they deliver fresh, organic fruits and veggies straight from their local farm to your doorstep, but you can customize your order so that you are getting exactly what you want as frequently as you want. After you sign up, you can go into your account online and click on things that you do not want to receive, so you know that you won’t be left with a bunch of wasted items. We chose to start with the small box, once a week, for $25. I received my first box on Tuesday and it included: one bunch of carrots, two bunches of kale, four apples, four oranges, five small sweet potatoes, three avocados and one small basket of strawberries! It was perfect!
I believe they only deliver to the greater Los Angeles area and Orange County. You can enter your zip code on their website to check if they deliver to you. If they do, clink on the link below and use the promo code to get $10 off your first order. If you live outside of the delivery zone and want to know how you can get fresh organic produced delivered to you, go to http://www.localharvest.org/csa/ and search your zip code on the right hand side.
