Why FarmTaste?

FarmTaste sources the freshest produce and delivers it to your door through a flexible, no-contract subscription plan or one-time purchase. From fresh fruits and vegetables to meats, poultry, seafood, and artisan products, FarmTaste offers you farm fresh produce delivery right to your door. We believe in partnering with our local farmers in the most efficient and cost-effective way, as well as ensuring our farmers and producers are paid fairly for their products. We pride ourselves on having a zero waste focus. Each one of our produce boxes is sourced, then packed, and delivered. If there is any excess produce it is either donated or given to our staff.

Our boxes are well packed for fruit and vegetable delivery with exactly what you want via your online order frequency and preferences. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you are not satisfied, we will replace the product or issue you a credit. 

Where do we offer fresh produce delivery?

How much food will I get in my box?

You will receive a fruit, protein, or vegetable delivery that is fresh and full of what you need to make meals. For example, our Beginners Farm Box comes with 8 to 10 types of in-season vegetables along with 2 to 3 pieces of fruit. The box will also include fresh herbs, plus optional freshly baked bread and your choice of protein(steak, breast, pork chops, tofu, etc.). Products may vary weekly. However, we do try to add extras, especially if we have excess produce on hand.

For add-on boxes, you will receive either a box of fresh juicing vegetables and fruits (4 to 7 types of fruits and vegetables), essential dairy (milk, egg, and cheese or butter), seasonal fruit (5 to 6 types), farm cheeses (4 to 5 cheese varieties) or sweet and savory spreads (1 jar of jam and a jar of pickles). 

What types of produce are in the box?

The fresh farm produce that is included is seasonal, ripe, and healthy. There is a wide variety of vegetable delivery such as avocados, asparagus, mushrooms, potatoes, and more. As for fruit, you will find everything from apples and berries to pears, peaches, plums, grapes, or citrus. Proteins included in the boxes are of your choosing. We offer seafood, beef, poultry, pork, and for a vegetarian menu, tofu. 

In some boxes, we include optional fresh-baked bread from D'Amato's Italian bakery. For add-ons, there are boxes of dairy, juicing veggies and fruits, cheese, or seasonal fruits to round out your order. We also provide artisan goods such as sweet spreads, pickled goods, and honey.

We work with 30+ local farms here in the U.S to provide you with the freshest produce. Through us, you can support your local community by purchasing high-quality, fresh U.S. grown fruits and vegetables.
