So, I got my first Farmbox Direct Delivery today! YAY!
I’ve been on the hunt for an Organic Produce Delivery / CSA-type Box for awhile now, + this seems to be the only organic one that delivers to my area at the moment. I had previously tried a few others, but it seems as if they’re no longer in business since the Amazon / Whole Foods buyout, which is kinda sad.
In the past, I’ve found these of boxes really come in handy when I haven’t felt up to running out to the store, especially after surgeries, etc. – mainly, when I couldn’t push a full cart of groceries, or carry a lot of heavy grocery bags. And, since giving my body exactly what it needs to heal is extremely important to me, having options like this, right at my fingertips helps me MAKE SURE I don’t have any excuses NOT to eat healthy… even when I don’t feel like it! Lol.
While I definitely don’t rely on these all the time… I prefer to get my ass to the store instead, plus – these can really add up after awhile… I think they’re great thing to have from time to time – especially when you’re in a bind, or just want to switch it up + try things your local store may not have!
Medium Organic Only Produce Box
I got the Medium sized “Organic Only” Produce Box, which was $57.95. They also have other sizes, as well as conventional options (which area bit cheaper), + Red, Orange + Green only Juicing Boxes which I also thought was pretty cool!
Here’s what I received in the box…
- 1 bunch – Organic Kale
- 2 – Organic Cara Cara Oranges
- 1 bunch – Organic Rainbow Carrots
- 2 – Organic Yellow Squashes
- 2 – Organic Cucumbers
- 2 – Organic Kiwis
- 1 bunch – Organic Asparagus
- 2 bunches – Organic Green Beans
- 2 – Organic Apples
- 2 – Organic Tangerines
- 2 – Organic Pears
- 2 bunches – Organic Brussels Sprouts
My only complaint is that just about everything in the box came individually wrapped in tons of paper, with 4 Desi-Pak Natural Dehumidification Packs, 4 large Ice Packs, + then in a huge plastic bag. All of the paper was really soggy + damp, despite the dehumidification packs! And, honestly – I’d prefer nothing that’s damp to be wrapped in paper – to avoid any possible mold issues. I think the plastic bag would’ve been fine, + have received other orders like this without any issues.
Other than that – everything else was great! Definitely looking forward to lots of juicing, soups + salads with everything that came in the box!
