About 3 years ago, I was working 40-50 hour weeks (open to close) at a local pizza joint. My hours did not really allow for me to go to my local farmer's market and pick out fresh, organic produce. Instead, I shopped the organic section of my local Kroger- which at the time had a very limited section of organic produce & goods. I remember thinking to myself one night, "If only I could pay for this stuff and it just be delivered to my house- it would free up so much time!"
Little did I know that there were such programs! About a year later, my husband and I had moved and he was working full time, while I attended University. Finally one day I started "Google-ing" "produce delivered to your door" and the first thing that came up was a program called "Door to Door Organics". As I got to reading I saw that it has local organic produce, along with organic produce from throughout the United States. I immediately signed up! Within a week a local "farm box" was delivered to my door.
During the summer months, I put my membership on hold because I enjoy going to the farmer's market and picking out my own produce and just mingling with the locals and talking with the farmers. Now that it is Autumn and there won't be as much local, organic produce at the market- I had my membership re-activated! I have been thrilled thus far! Two weeks ago for a total of $35 I got the following:
2 Sweet Potatoes
1 LB Assorted colored Tomatoes
1 HUGE Green Pepper
4 oz Ginger root
2- 16 oz of organic heavy whipping cream (I make my own butter with this)
For organic produce delivered straight to your door- that is an awesome deal! You can also swap certain fruits or vegetables for others if you don't want those. Which is what I did above.
I have a bi-weekly box that comes, so this week I am getting the following:
2 Butternut Squash
5 Sweet Potatoes
1 Garlic Bulb
3 Kiwi Fruits
2- 8 oz bottles of organic heavy whipping cream
It is pretty awesome! I remember last year, every once in a while I would get some produce that would go bad quickly, they would forget to give me certain things I ordered, or other problems- normally that would make me not order from them anymore, but their customer service is amazing! I just simply email them with whatever problem I have and they either credit my account or send me extra products next time!
Oh and did I mention that you can get more than just produce from them?! You can order organic, cruelty free, grass fed beef, chickens, lamb, etc. You can order organic canned goods, snacks, breads, pastas.
So basically if you are extremely busy and don't have time to shop- you could do all your organic grocery shopping online-- and it would be delivered right to your door! It is perfect for people who don't have a vehicle or couples who only have one vehicle or even new moms who don't want to do a bunch of shopping but want healthy food in the house!
Check them out and see for yourself how awesome they really are!
