hank 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 Wednesdays. 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 the Friday before your delivery weeks, letting you know what you can expect for Wednesday’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 Monday 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!
