Full Circle Farms – Organic Produce Delivery
I don’t know about you, but the number one reason I stray from diet is an absence of groceries in my fridge. If I don’t go grocery shopping, my diet goes out the window. And
the worst part is, I almost never go grocery shopping. I swear I don’t have time! I have plans almost every day after work and my weekends are booked through October with out-of-town excursions. I have to schedule downtime, for Pete’s sake. I mean’ schedule’ as in, “On Sunday, I will do nothing but sit in my apartment and recuperate from life.” And I know what you’re thinking: maybe I should trade a happy hour here or there for grocery shopping, laundry, exercise, etc. I know this. I’m just terrible at caring enough to change.
Given the miserable display of will power detailed above, you can imagine how excited I was to discover a service that will deliver produce TO MY DOOR. I wake up in the morning and it’s just sitting there. A box of healthy, organic, delicious, diet-friendly food that I put almost zero effort into acquiring. Amazing. My diet feels better already. The company behind the solution to my “problem?” Full Circle Farms, the West Coast’s leading organic produce delivery service. Full Circle Farms began 15 years ago as an organic farm outside of North Bend, Wash. Now they work with hundreds of organic and family farms on the West Coast to deliver fresh foods to homes in Washington, Idaho, Alaska and the Bay Area. Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Sign up and select a delivery size. I went with the smallest delivery size called Seed, which is perfect for one to two people and includes approximately 15 to 20 servings. The sizes increase based on servings and number of people from Seed to Sprout to Garden to Harvest, which can feed a family of six.
Step 2: Look over the week’s delivery and customize if needed. The order contents are posted every Friday at noon. You can look them over and switch out any foods you don’t like from a list of other produce available that week. You can add starches, meats, dairy and pantry items for an additional cost if you so choose.
Step 3: Open your door in the morning and get excited! Delivery occurs at night so there’s no doorbell to answer, nothing to sign. Just food when you wake up.
And that’s it! Super simple. You can pay as you go, ordering week by week, or you can set up automatic payment ensuring a delivery every week. The Seed deliver I ordered cost me about $22 bucks. A little more expensive than my produce purchases at the grocery store, but way more convenient and reliable. Plus, I like the idea of supporting local family and organic farms. Anyhoo, if you’re lazy like me, or better yet, if you’re just someone looking for a great way to access organic produce, I highly recommend you give Full Circle Farms a try.
