Beginner's Farm Box
Our Beginner's Farm Box is designed for those who want to increase consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables. Vegetables are essential to a healthy lifestyle, however we recognize not everyone is comfortable cooking certain types of vegetables that require additional prepping. Therefore, we've created the Beginner's Farm Box which contains "easy" fresh fruit and vegetables that don't require peeling or have soft skins that make chopping easy. Most are ready to cook or eat straight from the box (after washing, of course 🙂).
The Beginner's Farm Box contains 8-10 types of in-season fruit and vegetables (approx. 10-12 individual daily servings recommended by USDA), fresh herbs, freshly baked bread and an optional choice of protein, i.e. freshly cut steaks, gourmet chicken, juicy pork chops, Atlantic salmon or extra firm tofu. We believe that locally sourced, U.S. grown in-season fruit and vegetables are the most nutritious and flavorful. That's why we picked the freshest seasonal produce for our Beginner's Farm Box.
Our freshly cut meat comes from a local purveyor of quality meats, Anmar - a trusted supplier to many Chicago's steakhouses. Processing and packaging is done at Anmar's USDA inspected facility.
