We do provide seasonal produce from local farms, like a CSA, however there are NO subscription fees, upfront costs or contracts with our service. Customers can decide to take a delivery week by week. In addition, we purchase from a variety of local farms each week to provide greater variety. And we deliver to your doorstep.
We will still deliver to your doorstep. Customers may also designate a location to leave a cooler if they are not home. Fresh from the Farms offers ice packs, which we will rotate with each delivery for a $10/year charge, or customers may use their own ice packs to ensure produce remains fresh.
Deliveries are always made on Wednesdays with weekly service offered July-September and bi-weekly service (every other week) from October to June. Customers may choose weekly (July – September only), bi-weekly, monthly or upon request deliveries with no obligation or contract.
Option 1: If ordering online, or by emailing info (at) freshfromthefarms.com, payment may be made via Credit Card or PayPal. To order online, click “Place Order“.
Option 2: During the week of delivery, established customers will receive an email invoice, which can be paid online by credit card, PayPal or Electronic Bank Transfer. As a convenience, regular customers can set up their own credit or debit card automatic payment.
Established customers receive an e-mail prior to Wednesday’s deliveries, detailing expected fruits and vegetables for the week’s Farmbox. Customers may request substitutions and make any preference changes known via e-mail response. To see a sample of a Farmbox, visit the “Typical FFTF Box” Tab in this “About” section.
Each new customer receives a Produce Survey with their first farmbox, which allows customers to rate produce preferences. This Produce Survey is utilized to assemble future farmboxes, ensuring customers receive a Farm Box suited to their preferences. Established customers may respond to the weekly e-mail sent prior to deliveries with any preference changes or substitution requests.
First, check out the Name that Vegetable tab on the Resources page and then move onto the Recipes page, where produce is listed alphabetically to provide suggested recipes and tips for preparing. A weekly wrap up e-mail is sent to customers with details about the week’s Farm Box and Recipe ideas.
While some farms practice organic farming, few farms are certified organic. All practice sustainable farming on small farms, growing for local consumption which drastically reduces conventional spraying.
