There are so many great things about this business that anybody would be hard pressed not to be passionate about it! The produce is organically grown, but even beyond that the business itself is environmentally friendly because we virtually eliminate waste and use minimal packaging. Supporting local farmers, we reduce distance and time from farm to table and help maintain open spaces in our communities, by ordering our baskets people are connected to their food and can provide their families with fresh produce that is safe and healthy - and tasty - to eat. We run a true family business, my husband Mark and I are both very involved in the day to day challenges and successes, Mark's mom and brother also contribute and our children help out too and are learning and growing from the experience. As for our goals, well, in addition to our constant commitment to deliver fresh delicious produce to our clients, we would love to see other communities have the same service and along with it, the same benefits too.
