What is a Typical Box?

Our boxes are always a generous mix of seasonal fruits and vegetables. We include basics that we always need and at times may include something that might be new to you. We include menu ideas and recipes for the new item so you can fearlessly give it a try. We share information with your Buying Club Coordinator so that she or he can offer guidance on how to enjoy every piece of produce included in your box. And we are here to help. Call or email us anytime as we have lots of experience with every item we choose.

We do our best to include a nice variety and quantity of each item. For example, based upon your request, we'll choose one or more from each general category:

Vegetables:

  • Broccoli, Cauliflower, Bok Choy, Summer Squash, Asparagus
  • Hard Squash, Artichokes, Beans, Peas, Eggplant, Mushrooms
  • Tomatoes, Scallions, Cucumbers, Peppers, Cabbage, Sprouts
  • Lettuce: Red Leaf, Romaine, Butter Lettuce, Salads
  • Garlic, Ginger, Parsley, Cilantro, Rosemary, Mint, Basil, Thyme
  • Carrots, Celery, Onions, Beets, Potatoes, Radishes
  • Leafy Greens: Chard, Kale, Spinach, Arugula, Escarole, Watercress

Please note:the above list is just an example. We always do our best to choose a nice sampling of a variety of fruits and vegetables. We are never heavy on potatoes, or greens or lettuces. You help us decide what to order for your box too. The possibility is endless as we search out fresh organics for us to enjoy each week. We never get a big box of strange unusual things; after all, we are part of our club and we feed our families this way too. We always have a nice balance so you can be assured you will find things that you know how to prepare each week as well as something that might be new and delicious..

We've compared the value of our coop boxes to other coops and buying clubs around the country and we found that ours is:

  • a better selection of different items
  • a better quantity of each item
  • a better mix of fruits and vegetables
  • a better value
