Our #1 priority is making sure the produce and groceries you get are the freshest and of the highest quality. We know your goal is to Live Healthy, so we want to help you do that so you can Be Happy. We closely inspect every item before it is packed.
Absolutely! We send a suggested box each week to take some of the work out of your meal planning and grocery shopping. Don’t like our suggestions? You can make up to 5 substitutions without the order price changing. Don’t like brussel sprouts? Sub in tomatoes instead, etc.
We are working hard to add other items to shop a la carte. Just note, your box price will remain the same, but as you shop for other items, your price will obviously increase.
In the future, we may look into allowing all a la carte shopping, but at this time, you need a subscription. This helps us plan and purchase products accordingly with our vendors.
Yup! Since we are new, we are keeping our delivery area small and efficient to reduce our carbon footprint. As we grow, we will add more delivery choices in a responsible way.
No. We will source organic and sustainably farmed products when we can, but many small farms cannot afford to obtain their certification to be classified as organic. We want to support the little guy, so we don’t require them to be certified.
No. We would love to source everything locally, but Midwest winters sort of ruin that. We like potatoes and onions and all, but that might get a little boring. Whenever local is available and of good quality, we will choose it over non-local. In addition, we will carry fruits that do not grow in our climate like bananas, kiwis, citrus, etc. year-round to ensure we have a robust selection to meet your needs.
Mother nature is in control in the produce world. Heat, rain, hail can all impact the production and quality of produce. We communicate regularly with our farmers and vendors, but sometimes we have to make last-minute changes due to unexpected circumstances. We will do our best to replace your item with the most similar product, e.g. Honeycrisp apple for a Gala, red leaf lettuce for green leaf, etc. If we can’t find anything comparable, we will credit your account for the item.
No problem at all. If you are unhappy with a substitution we made, shoot us a message here, send an email or call us and we will credit you for it, no questions asked.
Absolutely! If we have an item in stock (depending on seasonality), even if we didn’t put it into your box that week, you can set the item to sub into your box automatically. On each item, you will see an “add recurring” button. This button allows you to set products to “recur” in every order, as long as it’s in stock.
Nope! You can set your preferences to let us know what items you never want to receive. However, we highly suggest giving those brussels sprouts a try! They are best when roasted with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Then grate some cheese on top and voila, you have a delicious and nutritious side dish for every meal. We mean it, you really will want to eat them with every meal.
Leave a cooler out for us and we will put your order in there.
No problem. You can give us any special delivery instructions in your account settings, Tell us things like “blue house with white shutters,” or “first house on the left after the road curves.”

Not at this time. We hope you support us enough that we can grow into offering this service.
