Our commitment is to small local growers first, when local is unavailable we source elsewhere.
It is a very rare occasion that your box will have produce that is not locally grown. If and when this occurs it will be noted on this page and will usually be limited to one or two items. For instnace apples and or pears from Washington or Oregon only during California's "off season."

What's in The Box This Week July 19, 2017
How it works:
Dan has several small growers bringing their produce to his market daily. In addition, Dan and Philip visit many farms in the area and hand select fresh fruit & veggies to bring back to the market .
Between the pick ups and deliveries we are able to put together boxes from these growerMost of the farms are certified organic and some of them are not big enough to afford the enormous costs in certification but still grow using all organic methods.
During the Winter Months (November - March) we may substitue items from larger growers due to limited availability from our local growers. Mostly apples and pears and a few other items. this is done with great scrutiny and makes the box available year round with quality organic fruit and vegetables.
Not enough variety from the Locals during the Winter?
