So I guess we are going organic everywhere. This was a post from the website.
Earth day would have been a more appropriate time to announce this, but better late than never!
From now on organic will be available to all sites in Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Nevada! Anyone anywhere will be able to get an organic basket. You will just select the Organic Up-charge of $10!
The organic baskets will be assembled when they arrive that way all sites big or small will get the full assortment of items! You will need to CAREFULLY transfer over the produce from the black plastic container it arrives in to your own container. Then leave the black container there. As ecologically friendly as ever!
For those of you who have never seen an organic basket, the amount varies but it is often (especially not during harvest season) smaller than the conventional. Same as always though, we pool everyone’s money and spend 100% of it on Organic produce on the wholesale market. You are getting a FANTASTIC deal for 100% Certified Organic Produce. Most of the time when we have tried to shop the basket at the store, there isn’t even nearly the variety that comes in the basket at the store.
The organic basket is generally more seasonally oriented. Organic produce doesn’t have the boon of sprays & extreme fertilizers so it does much better during the time of year nature intended! It’s a nice way to get used to eating with the seasons.
