California has some of the best produce in the nation. If you’ve ever gotten the chance to visit any of the many neighborhood farmer’s markets and hand pick some fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, you know how rewarding eating fresh can be.
But what if you are a busy, busy person or happen to always forget when the farmers markets set up shop? What if you are a mom with your hands full and can’t make it out to the markets with your 20 kids in tow? What if you wanted to get farm fresh produce and support local farmers without leaving the comfort of your home or office? Well, guess what? You can!
My awesome friend (shout out Rima!) recently told me about her experience with Farm Fresh To You, a second generation, organic, family farm in California that delivers produce right to your doorstep. What’s better than great eats right in your backyard? How about on your front porch!?
I just had to try them out for myself, so the very next day, I went online and signed up for their bi-weekly service. Sign up was super quick. I entered in my personal information, set my food preferences and just like that, I was back to watching America’s Got Talent in 5 minutes flat.
I signed up for the $31 regular service, which included mostly veggies like baby bok choy and green peppers and a few fruits like avocado and plums. It’s the perfect amount for two people to share.
Less than a week later, they swooped in like ninjas in the night. I went to bed around 1 AM, and when I woke up the next morning at 8:30 AM there was a neat little box at my doorstep!
Here’s what was inside:
You can set custom preferences or omit foods you don’t like, but I personally love getting the surprise of perhaps a veggie or fruit or herb that I don’t normally cook with. That way, it forces me to learn a new recipe and discover something new!
You can never have too many veggies. Try them out for yourself!
