What is a Harvest Box?
A Harvest Box represents your weekly harvest delivery of fresh produce.
What does my weekly Harvest Box fee cover?
Each week you are guaranteed a variety of produce based on the Harvest Box size and weekly amount you chose. The weekly Harvest Box itself only includes seasonal vegetables and fruits (when available) that is harvested from our partner farms that week. Add additional products such as meat or cheese to your weekly Harvest Menu as an add-on price.

Can I customize my Harvest Box?
Yes. You can customize your Harvest Box produce by editing your Harvest Menu -- exchange produce or add other local products to your menu as desired.
What is a Harvest Menu?
We provide you a prepared Harvest Menu each week based on your Harvest Box size. You then have the ability to edit this Harvest Menu if you choose, by exchanging produce or adding other local products such as meat, bread or cheese to your menu.
