On the picture below are regular and small size boxes side by side, packed closed, ready for delivery.
1-The Standard Regular Service is the one we have been offering from the very beggining. The cost is 32$ per week. The produce comes in a bushel size box that is big 20” X 13” X 13”. It holds 7 reusable plastic containers that most of the time contain over 20 lb of fresh organic fruits and vegetables. The purpose for using these plastic containers is to protect the produce additionally from rain, dust, and bruising during transportation. The variety of produce in this service depends on what is available for harvest from our farm and what is available from the distributor. (Image bellow) For busy families who don't have time to wash and dry their reusable plastic containers, we offer the same service without the plastic containers. The produce is exactly the same; just the packing is different- in single bulk cardboard box. Please mark on your application what kind of packing would you prefer.
