FAQ

THE FOOD

What's in my share?  

We curate and deliver a share of protein, veggies, fruit, grains, and specialty items every week:

  • Fruits and Vegetables (about a pint each)
  • Proteins (about a pound each)
  • Dairy and Eggs (about 1/4 lb cheese, 6 eggs, 12 oz yogurt each)
  • Grains (a small loaf of bread or 1/2 lb pasta each)
  • Special Treats

The selection of food in your share changes every week. You can choose your share when you sign up, and adjust it at any time. If anyone in your family has allergies or aversions, please let us know and we'll make sure not to include those items in your share.

Where does your food come from?

The food comes from local farms and food purveyors. Check our our Farmers and Purveyors for more info.

What if something is missing or broken in my share?

We work with organic farmers and your vegetables come directly from the farm, without stopping at a food processing facility. This helps us deliver fresh, delicious, and healthy food, but you may find a bit of dirt or a bug here or there. If there's ever anything wrong with your order, let us know so we can fix it or make it up to you in the next week's share.

How do I cook this stuff?

We'll send you a newsletter each week that tells you exactly what is in your share, where it came from, and a couple of suggested recipes.
