Mikes organic food delivery

This morning a friend was in the store and we were chatting about just about everything and she mentioned that she uses a service called "Mikes Organic Food Delivery" for all of her families weekly produce. I had heard of the business but had not actually check it out, I did this morning and it is amazing.

The premise is pretty simple. Several times a week they visit local farms and pick the freshest seasonal produce and meats and deliver what ever you request to your door.

They deliver to Greenwich, Riverside, Cos Cob, Old Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, Chappaqua, Rye, Harrison, Larchmont, Armonk and Bedford.

Take a look a some pictures from their website. I admit I usually only look at pictures and read small blurbs on websites, but read the "About Mike" section it is both interesting and inspirational to see someone making a difference and helping people to be healthier, and doing something they love all at the same time.

Take a peek at just some of the pictures directly from the website...
Dont tomatoes look amazing?
How it Works 1

Here is a blurb on how it works:
"We have close relationships with some of the best, brightest and most reputable small organic/local farms in the Northeast.

Every day we wake up with the Roosters (sometimes before) and drive right to the farm house, where we inspect all of the produce that has just been picked. 

A Mike's Organic Employee then individually selects the best fruits, veggies, eggs, and meat available, packages all of your food in special carrying crates and coolers, puts it right onto our truck, and drives it to your door. 

Vegetables are chosen by what is in season and what is freshest the day that we go to the farm. Meat is also chosen by what is in season and freshest.

We deliver directly to your home weekly, every other week, or you can choose a delivery package of 6, 12 or 18 weeks. In most cases vegetables will go from being in the ground to your door within 24 hours.

You can't get any fresher unless you're a farmer!

Be a Locavore! Support your local farmers by eating food grown or raised no more than 100 miles away. It's Better for you and Better for the Environment."

I cant wait to try it out this Fall!
