Door to Door Organics’ “Local Farm Box,” a convenient, flexible alternative to a CSA

LIVONIA, Mich. (July 10, 2012) — Door to Door Organics, a service delivering Good Food directly to home, offices and schools across Michigan, supports local farmers whenever possible. At the peak of the growing season, up to 60% of Door to Door Organics’ produce is sourced from local farmers. From late June through mid-October, Door to Door Organics also offers a “Local Farm Box”, containing only locally-grown produce.

“We love and fully support CSAs,” said Location Director Carlos Collier. “But many CSAs are full now and unable to accept new members. The Door to Door Organics Local Farm Box offers high quality, locally-grown produce with all the flexibility and convenience of a Door to Door Organics account: you’re able to support a variety of local farms (and receive a greater variety of produce;) we deliver your box to you – using a well planned, efficient route (cutting down on individual car trips to the store;) you can make substitutions, which you normally can’t do with a CSA; you can add items that aren’t grown by one individual CSA, or items your family really needs, but which are grown far away, such as bananas (both of which also reduce trips to the store;) and you can put your order on hold while you’re on vacation.”

This year, they expect to work with a number of local farms such as Eater’s Guild Farm in Bangor, Mich., Cinzori Farm in Ceresco, Mich., Molter Family Orchards in Watervliet, Mich., Green Field Farms in Fredericksburg, Ohio, Good News Farm in Edmore, Mich. and Big Head Farm in Benton Harbor, Mich.

They will be offering locally-grown items such as summer squash, spinach and other leafy greens, potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans, peppers, herbs, sweet corn, blueberries, apples and hardy kiwi.

Customers also can shop for other local grocery items such as organic grassfed beef from Graham’s Organic in Rosebush, Mich, free-range poultry and pork from Gunthorp Farms in LaGrange, Ind., pastured bison from Cook’s Bison Ranch in Wolcottville, Ind., organic eggs from Green Meadow Farms in Elsie, Mich., pastured eggs from Creswick Farms in Ravenna, Mich., fresh-baked breads and sweets from Zingerman’s in Ann Arbor, Mich., as well as a selection of locally-made cheeses and locally roasted coffee beans.

Customers who choose the Local Farm Box will still have the flexibility that comes with shopping with Door To Door Organics, including the ability to set preferences (choosing the produce they do and do not want), make substitutions with the current menu offering, and add additional items including organic produce not grown in the Midwest, such as bananas and avocados.

Door to Door Organics delivers throughout metro Detroit as well as the greater Ann Arbor, Flint, and Lansing regions.

Local Farm Boxes include:

Farm origin information for each item
Farm news and details on upcoming farm events, including farm tours
Inspired recipes from the Door to Door Organics Kitchen, customized to the items arriving in the box each week
