We created FarmBox to share our love of eating fresh, local produce straight from the farm with our friends across the Bay Area! With hectic workdays, weekly appointments and family commitments, we realize that not everyone has the time to visit their weekly farmer’s market—no less a farm!—to find the best fruits and veggies of the season.
FarmBox SF is similar to a CSA, a model where consumers purchase a share in a farm to receive a portion of the harvest. However, we differ by supporting dozens of local farmers to bring you the best crops that vary week by week. We guarantee that no two of your FarmBoxes will be identical!
We have built strong relationships with our Bay Area farmers to ensure that your produce is picked when it’s ripe and bursting with flavor and is grown using sustainable, organic farming practices. FarmBox SF also features local artisan food makers through our online marketplace, whose products can be added to any delivery.
Farmers and artisans love FarmBox because they get to focus on what they do best—the farming and cooking—and we help them distribute their wonderful products to a customer base they may not ordinarily reach.
There’s nothing better than eating food that tastes the way it’s supposed to! We offer a free weekly newsletter with recipes written by local chefs, tips on how to best store your produce, and fun facts about items you may be unfamiliar with—or may have never seen before—in your FarmBox! We have a chef and nutritionist on staff who can answer your questions 7 days a week!
Additionally, FarmBox has partnered with local non-profit, Leah's Pantry, to donate 1 lb. of fresh, locally-harvested produce for every delivery we make! These fruits and veggies will be used in a variety of nutritional workshops and cooking classes that serve many of San Francisco's low-income neighborhoods.
When you order from FarmBox, you can trust that you and your family are getting fresh, local products and supporting environmentally-friendly farms. Click here to read about our Farmers and Artisans.
This love for food stayed with me as I grew up and moved to Paris. It was there that I really experienced what my mama meant by eating fresh. The Parisians have beautiful farmer’s markets every day and eat from the local baker and butcher shop.
And if it didn’t look pretty, she wouldn’t eat it! But growing up in Utah had its culinary drawbacks. Utah is a beautiful state – but because of our amazing ski season, we don’t have fresh produce for most of the year. Moving to California changed my cooking all together.
Hours spent perusing the aisles of farm-fresh fruits and vegetables and sampling each variety, especially the lesser-known, more unusual ones like cherimoyas and apriums, are amongst my fondest memories!
How it works:
Our partnership is simple--for every FarmBox delivery made, we will donate 1 lb. of fresh, local produce to Leah’s Pantry!
