About Fresh From the Farms 2017-04-04T15:46:50+00:00

Thank you for your interest in Fresh from the Farms.  We have a passion for encouraging a community of Locavores, people who seek out locally-grown foods in an effort to eat fresh, nutritious food and support farmers and the local economy.  Nearly every item in our boxes is from farms within a 30-mile radius of Fort Mill.  100% of our farmboxes support the local food industry. The emphasis for Fresh from the Farms is on local, not organic. Though many farms practice sustainable farming, few are certified organic.

A ½ bushel-sized box of produce is $34.00 and includes varying kinds of seasonal produce, depending on availability.   A bushel-sized box of produce is $63.00 and will include a double portion of every item.

If there are items you dislike, we are happy to make substitutions, but typically we choose what will be included in each week’s farmbox based on the freshest, local farm produce.  We leave a brief produce survey with every new customer and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.  New customers will rate each item of produce listed, and send the survey back to us.  We keep that information on file, referencing customer preferences for packing future farmboxes, omitting items marked with a 0.

At the bottom of the produce survey, you will see our delivery options.  Our deliveries are always on Thursdays.  We offer automatic weekly (summer season only), automatic biweekly, automatic monthly, or only-on-request delivery rotations.  Decide which delivery rotation works best for you and your family, and we will deliver a farmbox accordingly.

If you choose an automatic delivery, you will receive an email on Mondays of your delivery weeks, letting you know what you can expect for Thursday’s farmbox. You are welcome to cancel or change automatic deliveries at any time, without penalty.  However, unless we hear that you do not want to receive that farmbox, we will make preparations for your delivery.  We ask that you notify us by Tuesday at 5pm if you are unable to receive a farmbox that week.  Please know there is no commitment or contract to sign, and never any fees to cancel. 

Fresh from the Farms delivers only to the York county communities of Fort Mill and Tega Cay in South Carolina.

Fresh from the Farms offers local honey, 1lb for $8.50 and free-range, cage-free eggs $4.50 per dozen, and other add-on items.  These items can be delivered with the purchase of a farmbox.   As a convenience, Fresh from the Farms offers ice-cold icemats with every delivery for $5.00/one year subscription.  Leave the icemat from your previous delivery in your cooler, and we will swap with a frozen one.

One last note, existing customers always receive a $5 referral discount off their next box for any referral that leads to a box purchase.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.  We love hearing from you!

Fresh From the Farms box

You may wonder what exactly fills a Fresh From the Farms peck-size box?

That’s a great question. The answer varies from week to week.

Our commitment is to deliver to your door the freshest, local produce we can find. Your box can vary either slightly or greatly between deliveries, depending on what is available from our local, trusted farmers. And, of course, what is in season.

Produce may include, but is not limited to:

Different varieties of lettuce, microgreens, strawberries, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, spinach, carrots, peppers, many varieties of squash, Kale, corn, cucumbers, potatoes, apples, peaches, blueberries, figs, green beans, radishes, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cantaloupe and honeydew among others.

Each customer will receive a produce survey, which will help us as we assemble your box. We will leave out items you dislike and substitute with items you grade more favorably.

We’re enjoying so much the delicious fruits and vegetables. The cantaloupe was great, as was the corn. I love those Asian pears.

We LOVED our first produce box last week! Nearly everything has been gobbled up, and the goat cheese was incredible!

We have been so impressed with your produce and the service!

Danielle G., Springfield, Fort Mill

Wendy & Beth, We felt like it was Christmas Day yesterday! Oh my goodness, we were so overjoyed at our box! We had such a wonderful dinner last night and were giggling with glee at all our fruit! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Allison B., Baxter, Fort Mill
 

The goat cheese was AWESOME. I mixed it together with cream cheese and chopped craisins and rolled it in pecans to put on my salad. Yum yum yum! Thanks!

Deb R. Baxter, Fort Mill
 

Braised balsamic chicken (with your herbs and tomatoes) on a bed of quinoa with roasted root vegetables (your turnips, sweet potatoes and butternut squash!photo My kids send a big thank you to Ms. Wendy for their favorite comfort foods. ????

Amy A., Baxter, Fort Mill

Love getting the fruits and vegetables, it has challenged me to make more healthy and different foods for my family. We all are interested to see what is in each box. And my daughter is becoming a fantastic chopper and helper in the kitchen. She found a chicken recipe, that calls for a cup of herbs at a time, and now we have it!!. Loved the pasta, may we have another pound for this week?

Chris F., Baxter, Fort Mill
 

We just have to tell you that you outdid yourselves this week! Was the theme superfruits??? That watermelon and those Asian pears and tomatoes were gigantic and gorgeous! And what a splendid bouquet of herbs! We are like kids in a candy store! And, we are so curious- what are these intriguing red beans??? We cannot wait to experiment with those! Thank you so much for, as always, delivering the best and the freshest produce and ever- expanding our palates!

Heather S., Heron Harbor, Tega Cay

I’ve been buying from Fresh From the Farms around here in Fort Mill. They bend over backwards to accommodate preferences and dislikes, and they even find things like local honey, pasta, goat cheese, etc. The women who run it are fantastic and I’ve been so happy with it.
