Essential Farm Box
Our generously portioned Essential Farm Box contains 12-15 types of in-season fruit and vegetables (approx. 18-24 individual daily servings recommended by USDA), fresh herbs, your choice of a protein and a loaf of fresh bread from a local bakery.
Fresh fruit and vegetables are the foundation of a healthy diet. We believe that locally sourced, U.S. grown in-season fruit and vegetables are the most nutritious and flavorful. A healthy diet also includes a variety of proteins. That's why we picked the freshest seasonal produce for our Essential Farm Box.
A healthy diet also includes a variety of proteins. Choose from freshly cut steaks, gourmet chicken, juicy pork chops or extra firm tofu. Our 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.
