Farm Fresh to You

I just wanted to give a shout-out to a great organic farm in Northern California called Farm Fresh to You. They deliver boxes of their locally grown produce to households in the surrounding areas. Most, but not all produce in the box is grown directly by them or other neighboring organic farmers in the region, although they do use some produce from other parts of the country to keep fruit in the boxes throughout the colder months. They do, however, also offer a box of 100% locally grown fruits and veggies.

Price for the regular box including delivery is $31.50, which will feed an average family for one week. They offer lots of other options, too, depending on your family's individual needs.

I am not affiliated with this farm in any way. I just stumbled across them and was impressed.

  2. I had heard a lot o this research, but it was great to see it all compiled into one article! Thought maybe you'd like to pass it on to your readers:

  3. I just wish places like this would do the same and just charge extra to ship it Fed-Ex every week for those of us who want to do something like this but have nothing like it in our area.

  4. @Mrs. W, part of the concept is that the produce is locally grown and doesn't have to travel a great distance. So, that is probably why places like this will not ship.

  5. OK, I know I'm a little late on this one, but I just watched a Documentary film called Food Inc... it was a real eye opener to the ways we mass produce food... It has COMPLETELY changed my perspective.
