Yes, a local community supported agriculture (CSA) program is our absolute favorite source for organic produce. And farmers markets are THE go to for local food in season. But what if you don't have access to a local CSA? Or want seasonal foods all year round? AND delivered right to your door?
Enter organic produce delivery, especially ones that are done right -- sustainably grown and delivered.
We have been fortunate to participate in local CSAs for almost twenty years; however, for varying reasons, our options for a consistent source come and go. So over the last year, we searched high and low for the "next best thing" and discovered more options are available now than ever. Our primary objective was to find organic produce delivery that allowed us to still support local/regional producers and is shipped as environmentally conscious as possible.
We reached out to organic food delivery services, tried a few and are thrilled to have found the best pick for us (see below) satisfying our priorities for both organic and regional produce options all year long. We especially love them because they offer so many options (Local Only, Organic/Sustainable, Veggies, Fruit, Mixed +Tiny, Small, Medium, Large) with the ability to customize each and every delivery by substituting from all the options any time. They do deliver nationwide, however the closer you live to Georgia, the better your shipping rate will be.

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to a local CSA or farmers market, but more and more farms and producers are banding together to ship their harvests nationwide, affordably and sustainably. Let's get the word out to others and support sustainable agriculture and healthy eating.
