The Produce Box, Got to be NC Agriculture
Kelly and I have long bemoaned the fact that we live in a state that has great farms and in a county that is mostly rural and is, it seems nurturing an organic farming awakening. And yet the supermarkets are full of produce shipped in from California and Florida, Mexico and Asia.
There are many farmers markets out there, Clayton has one, North Hills has one, Raleigh has a couple, so there is the opportunity to get local produce but the big excuse …”it’s not convenient” always pops up!
So we found this great service that delivers a box of fresh local produce once a week or whenever you need it. It’s called The Produce Box and they have a cool system where they work with farmers through out the state of North Carolina and whatever is in season at the time they create a default box which would have the most popular items in season that week. There are also other items you can add yourself on their web site for you to choose from.
So our box came with Corn, Eggplant, Peaches, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Squash, Peppers (three different kinds). They offer 75 different fruits and vegetables and some unique items like Asian pears, persimmons, shitake and oyster mushrooms and get this.......Kiwi, in NC!
The folks at The Produce Box also go and meet the farmers and tour the farms where the produce comes from, every year.
Their website is theproducebox.com , their phone number is (919) 904-4722 and you can email them at email@example.com
