TGIF. Wait no, it’s Monday, isn’t it? Well, let me give you a little something to look forward to. I love Fridays. Specifically, I love every third Friday or every fourth Friday, or every Friday, or whatever Friday I select. Because Fridays (for me every third) are the day when I get to wake up, toss away the covers, throw on my slippers, and walk to the front door. I open the door like I’m rounding the corner to the tree on Christmas morning, and I’m elated to find that my newest Farm Fresh To You produce box has been delivered.
It is so much fun to open up the recycled box and discover what’s inside. Although this organic farm delivery service offers an online portfolio where you can personalize your box (from exclusions to additions-how awesome is that?!) I like to keep mine a mystery. Mainly because I like just about every piece of produce under the sun, and I love how it keeps my menu planning fresh and exciting.
Another thing I love is the sheer abundance of produce included in each box. Tyler and I opted for the “More Mix” box which runs for $44.00 which is sold as one that serves about 4 people, but because we juice a lot, and I cook A LOT, this box works perfectly for us. They also have boxes that run for as little as $25 and all the way up to $110.
Alright, let’s break it down; for $44 Ty and I got:
-one head lacinato kale
-one head green leaf lettuce
-two large fennel bulbs
-one bunch beets
-one pound red potatoes
-one bunch carrots
-three hass avocados
-one head cauliflower
(sorry Whole Foods, I love ya, but I’m probably already nearing $44 right there)
-6 navel oranges
-4 lisbon lemons
-6 fuji apples
-12 murcott mandarins
-2 ruby star grapefruit
-did I mention they are ALL certified organic?!
Here’s how all the veg stacks up.
Here’s the fruit (yes, the avocado IS a fruit).
Pretty incredible, no?! As busy as our lives can be, Farm Fresh to You makes my life a little bit simpler while still preserving my love of supporting local farms. Their farm is located in Capay, California, just a short stretch north of Sacramento. Read a bit more of their story (really quite touching) and you’ll see why I love everything they do.
