Check out our Facebook and Instagram for updates to see what farms we're sourcing from this week! We'll post photos and information about what awesome seasonal food we'll be sending in the upcoming weeks.
Sourcing seasonal, local produce can be a challenge. Supply of certain items can be limited. At Harvest Delivery, we try our best to meet the tastes of our customers week in and week out. By logging into your Account, you can Update Your Preferences. Tell us about your local food tastes and how often you'd like to receive them. Update this page, at any time and as the seasons change and we'll source the best local food according to your preferences!
It's quite simple, really: Select your box and wait for it to be delivered to your doorstep.
We carefully curate our boxes biweekly for food-conscious folks like yourself. When you create your account with Harvest Delivery, be sure to Edit your Preferences within your account. This way we can plan your delivery according to your tastes. Whether you're a carnivore that isn't all about pork or a veggies-only eater that isn't a fan of celery, we'll do our best to pack items in your boxes that are seasonal and fit your tastes. After placing your order, you'll receive an order confirmation to let you know we've received your order and you'll find a separate note in your inbox that outlines the products in your box and where they come from. On the Friday of a delivery week, you'll receive an email notification that your order has shipped and your box will be delivered to you by Saturday evening.
Orders placed before midnight on Tuesday of a delivery week will be delivered on Friday or Saturday of that same week. If you are unsure, a banner appears at the top of every page of our website to remind you of the next delivery!
We don't include recipes. We like freedom and the power of choice, so we want that for you as well. When you get a Harvest Delivery box, you get the raw ingredients to make whatever you choose rather than getting a recipe you may not necessarily enjoy.
It depends on what kind of box fits your fancy. Rather than having you pick each item in the box, we curate products from our farmers and group them into themes: Our boxes typically start with either meat protein or fruits and vegetables as the base that we build upon with other artisan goodies including cheeses and other dairy products, seasonings and spices, grains and oats, and jarred spreads, jams or jellies. We're always looking for new and different products to add so that we can create new themed boxes for you to enjoy. To help us build your delivery, provide us with some guidance by Editing Your Preferences within your Harvest Delivery account.
Our small boxes are great for a two person household and will make two meals each. Our large boxes will work for a larger household of 3-4 and will make 1-2 meals each. Because we are trying to inspire homestyle cooking, we expect that if you're buying a small box for 2 people, you'll have leftovers and likewise for the large boxes.
Tell us all about it - we definitely don't want to send you things that don't jive with you. When you create an account with us, you'll be asked a few questions about things you like and things you don't. Based on what's available in season, we'll make sure you get as much of the things you like and none of the things you don't. You can update your preferences in your account at any time.
Currently, we are delivering boxes every other weekend. The banner at the top of our website always lists when our next boxes will be delivered. Boxes are delivered on Saturdays, typically between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Our boxes are conservatively packed based on the temperature and season in which they are shipped with the expectation that they can withstand twice their expected transit time.
We want you to be able to enjoy the fruits of our farmers' labor immediately once you open your box, so keep in mind that our produce was picked ripe for you. This means that it will likely not need to be ripened once it gets to you. If there are special storage or handling instructions from the farmer, we'll share those with you in an email the day before you receive your box. For a better idea of how long your items will last stored in your refrigerator, check out Food Safety's guide to refrigerator storage.
Absolutely! Your box is packed with insulated recyclable materials based on a special recipe of instructions provided by expert packaging consultants at two independent companies, as well as through trial and error and observation. When you receive your box, it is recommended that that you remove any perishable meat products and place them in your refrigerator or freezer. You should also consult our Farmers Notes to appropriately store your produce, which we'll deliver via email prior to your order arriving.
Not quite yet. Much like a newborn baby, the box's delivery date is out of your hands. We've chosen our Saturday biweekly delivery dates to correspond with popular days to shop at the grocery store, making our process an easy and convenient supplement to your routine.
No problem. We're all about making it easier for you to buy local food. That's why we cold-pack our boxes with recyclable, insulated materials. Your order can safety sit for several hours and still maintain its freshness so no need to worry about rushing home to take the box inside right away.
We'd love to hear your feedback. If you purchase a box and it's not what you expected, have no fear. First, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, we'll do whatever it takes to make it right.
We're always open to feedback and are incredibly mindful of your expectations, which is why you'll receive surveys from time to time asking what your thoughts are. Whatever your likes or dislikes are, we want to hear them so we can take our steps to improve each week.
Yes, everything in your box will be recyclable down to the ice packs. Our packaging is made from recycled denim and the ice packs are non-toxic. We encourage all of our customers to be mindful by reusing and recycling as much of our packaging as possible.
We work with producers that are mindful of how their crop of choice is produced. We spend a lot of our time as conscious eaters digesting all of the words the food industry has for us: all natural, real, certified organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, low fat. We value our food and our relationships with farmers over buzzwords and compartmentalization, so we choose to partner with local farmers and purveyors that align with us on a few important things:
They believe that food is sustenance and should be raised and harvested thoughtfully.
They are mindful that their methods of production are important to their customers' wellbeing.
They are aware of their impact on the environment.
They are conscious that the feed for their crop of choice is not willfully harming the animals they raise or produce they grow.
We do have some partners who are certified organic. When we choose partners to work with, a biggest indicator of compatibility with us is going to be that they're sustainable. What's that mean? Sustainability to us means that they recognize that there are farming practices that are no bueno to both us and Mother Earth and they choose to not go that route. We're not down with pesticides or GMOs and neither are our farmers and food purveyors.
When you purchase a box subscription, you'll save 15-20% on your order and automatically defaults to a biweekly shipment. You can start and pause your subscription at any time without extra fees or anything additional that's not fun monetarily speaking.
