Call First Dibs on a Local Farm Box!

Blue Moon Acres

It may be the middle of winter, but we’re dreaming of hot summer days and the sweet, local produce they bring. In fact, we’re already gearing up for our 2013 season and partnering with new local farms, which means one thing–LOCAL FARM BOXES!

Everybody loves supporting local farms, so these boxes are sure to be popular this summer. Quantities are limited, so get your name on the list before June 1st, and you’ll be the first to know when Local Farm Boxes become available in June. That way, you can get your hands on a box before they all sell out!

What’s a Local Farm Box?
A Local Farm Box is filled with locally grown organic produce and available from mid- June through early October. Early in the season, it will be heavy on the veggies until fruit arrives late in the summer. You’ll see the tastiest heirloom tomatoes our produce buyer Ben has ever eaten along with peppers, squash, eggplant, cucumbers, and melons from Lancaster Farm Fresh, a co-op of 75 organic farmers in Lancaster County (pictured above). With your Local Farm Box, you’ll also enjoy specialty lettuces and microgreens from Blue Moon Acres in Buckingham, Pennsylvania, the sweetest, plumpest blueberries we could find from Little Buck Organics in Hammonton, N.J. (pictured below), and so much more! But if you have a hankering for a banana at any time, not to worry — you can always sub those in or add them to your order! The Local Farm box is available in two sizes: Little and Small.

How’s that different from a CSA?
You can enjoy the freshness of local produce as well as the flexibility of being a Door to Door Organics customer. Unlike a CSA, or community-supported agriculture farm share, a Local Farm Box offers flexibility so you can:

  • Substitute up to five items with every order. Don’t like chard? Sub it out.
  • Going out of town? Schedule a vacation. You can even switch back to a regular box at any time.
  • Skip or makes changes to your delivery up until 8 a.m. the day before.
  • Add other items to your order, like locally sourced meat, farm-fresh dairy foods, and more!

UPDATE 6/21/13: Local Farm Boxes are now available, so sign up now!
