One night while we were having dinner we heard a knock at the door. In our neighborhood solicitations usually have to do with home improvements so I was ready to get rid of him and get back to our dinner. To my surprise, the young man was offering a deal on Farm Fresh To You, an organic produce home delivery service. That’s exactly the same brand of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) that my neighbor, who cooks for a family of four, has for her family. I wanted to listen.
As a busy mom who is usually shuttling her daughter between play dates, softball practices and games, school, Boys & Girls Club, and much more— my visits to the farmers markets had been dwindling and how much I was spending at the grocery store on organic fruits and vegetables only seemed to increase. I could save both time and money with the right delivery service for my organic produce. He didn’t have to say much to get me to sign up for Farm Fresh To You. A $10 coupon and the chance to support local farms and get quality food that I was already spending the same or more on at the grocery store was all I needed.

TASTED & TESTED:
In this week’s order we got a “Mixed Fruit And Veggie Regular” box. Inside the box was:
- 2 Bartlett pears
- 2 Gala apples
- 1 pound of green grapes
- half a pound of gypsy peppers
- 1 package of mission figs
- 1 package of mixed heirloom tomatoes
- 1 head of Romaine lettuce
- 1 slicing cucumber
- 1 pound of white avalanche potatoes
- 2 yellow nectarines
Farm fresh to you has been farming organically since 1976.
They grow more than 60 types of produce over 130 varieties at their Capay organic farms in northern and southern California.
The Farm Fresh To You website has a resource section that allows you to look up different recipes that you can use with the fruit and veggie boxes. This is super helpful for trying new types of food, but for our family, we like to use the boxes to keep healthy snacks on hand. It’s great for us because we have lots of kids in the neighborhood who are in and out of the house and having extra fruits around to snack on is really important for our family.
You can customize your box on every order. Make sure you do, or it’ll default to the box that they make for you. If you like to be surprised and get what they pick out for you, there is an exclusion list you can check off so fruits, veggies and herbs that you’d never use don’t show up in your box. I just figured that out last week. Also – no problem if you’re going out of town for a week, they have a vacation hold feature, too!
Let me know on Twitter @jenleo what your favorite fruits and veggies or recipes have been from Farm Fresh To You.
*I had signed up for Farm Fresh To You before I was offered the opportunity to review their product. We will continue to use their service.
