Organic Basket

100% Organic Produce

Just as cool as the Conventional Basket but 100% USDA Certified Organic Produce! Also worth noting; if you are concerned with GMO produce, USDA Certified Organic Produce is not to contain any GMOs and there is oversight and audit built into the certification process. So if GMOs concern you, please go with this option.​

Assorted
Citrus Pack

 

Chock-full of Vitamin C, this is a variety of citrus to delight your tastebuds! We love to make up mini-citrus packs as gifts for teachers, coaches, and neighbors. Or fill your home with amazing scents by slicing and putting in water on your cooktop any combination of: citrus, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, pine needles, and cranberries.

 

Hoping for Blood Orange, Minneola, Navel Oranges, Grapefruit, Lemons, and Limes.

Gumbo Pack

 

Mardi Gras is March 5, the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent – and we want some gumbo! This pack will get you well on your way! The culinary “holy trinity” is the base for much of Cajun and Creole cooking: equal parts onions, bell peppers, and celery. Try your hand at gumbo or use this pack for soups, stews, and other savory dishes! CHEAT NOTE: holy trinity, like traditional mirepoix -two parts onion and one part each carrots and celery- can be chopped and frozen for quick use! I always have it handy in my freezer!

Hoping for Green Bell Peppers, Celery, Yellow Onion, Carrot, Green Onions, Bay Leaves, Fresh Thyme, Garlic, Roma Tomatoes, and Zucchini.

Mexican Pack

 

Ingredients to complement your south-of-the-border-themed dishes! We absolutely love making fresh salsasfajitas (with or without meat!), and this Mexican hot sauce - we make something similar and add a teaspoon of oregano and double the garlic. My big kids use this sauce on everything!

 

Hoping for Tomatillos, Tomatoes, Avocado, Anaheim Peppers, Jalapeno, Cilantro, Lime, White Onion, and Green Onion.

Pink Lady 

Apples

Approx 113 count

Approx 38 Lbs

 

This is a lovely eating apple, or stock up and process snacks! Dried apples, apples sauce, fruit rolls, apple pie filling (for pies or crisps!), apple butter! Plenty of options to make some healthy and delicious snacks and treats!

Green Beans

Approx 28 Lbs

 

Throw in a pan for 10 minutes and then finish the final 5 minutes with garlic, olive oil, and red pepper flake, or with with garlic, olive oil, and coconut aminos or soy sauce! Or quick steam and finish the same way! These are excellent leftover on a salad the next day.

Green beans are an easy-to-freeze and easy-to-pressure can (or water bath can if pickling) veggie that will give us all some easy and fast dinner time options. I love adding them to soups, stews, and stirfrys.

Carrots
Approx 48 lbs

 

Shredded, roasted, steamed, peeled and dipped, juiced, pressure canned, pickled, par boiled and frozen, carrots are multi-use! Roast them for a naturally sweet treat. My kids cheer when they see that big bag – it means apple/carrotjuice is on the menu for the week!

Grab some celery and onions or onions and bell peppers and chop up a bunch for mirepoix and holy trinity to throw in the freezer for easy starts to innumerable savory dishes!

Strawberries
Approx 8 Lb

 

Delicious fresh, in smoothies, frozen, jammed, syruped (is that a word?); dehydrate in fruit rolls; make fruit salad and fruit pizza; smother ice cream, yogurt, cereal, and shortcake; and our favorite: strawberry-topped gluten-free crepes! A favorite dish of my kids is Greek yogurt topped with strawberries and drizzled with raw honey.
