Farm Fresh To You

You've seen these distinctive boxes all over town on front porches, isn't it time to see what all the buzz is about? These gold standard of CSA boxes are dependable and consistent. It comes mostly from Capay Organic Farms, a second-generation family farm, but they also partner with other farms - too - to source produce, and the whole shebang is blissfully certified organic. So everything here is pesticide-free and sustainably-grown, and there is every imaginable sort of customization available with this rockin' box. Every Thursday, at noon, Capay posts the box contents for the following week’s deliveries so you can plan ahead. Want it at the office too? No sweat, they got that. There's a Traditional CSA Box, a Mixed Fruit & Veggie Box, an Organic Snack Pack. Plus to simplify: there's even the easy No Cooking Box if you're a super bust family on the go, go, go. Grab some celery, avocado, radishes, and a quick bell pepper, and now your park playdate just turned into a sweet spot for a crudite plate on the benches.

Cost: Prices range from $26 for a Small up to $58 for their Monster. Plus, when you recommend this service to your friends and family, they save $10 off their first box and you save with a $25 produce credit to your account.
