Did you know that your produce doesn’t usually arrive at the grocery store until a week after harvest? Shocking, right? I’m sure we all want the freshest and most nutrient-rich foods that available, so why is it so hard to obtain high quality produce?
Well, I have some good news! The founders of From The Farmer have heard our cry loud and clear and created the most genius and convenient way to get farm fresh foods to us, the consumers, in record time. The creators do just what their catchphrase claims: bring produce from “Farm to Front Door”! They deliver seasonal items to your home on a weekly basis. Best of all? It”s surprisingly affordable! Baskets are completely customizable and there is no commitment—something we love since we travel so often!
From the Farmer works with local farms that love what they do. You can almost taste the pride in their work in every bite. We were lucky enough to partner with this amazing local company to try out their service, taste their food and report back to you with our honest opinions—and a few recipes we came up with just for our readers.
My first basket arrived at the crack of dawn last Tuesday. I opened the box and took in the bright colors and aromas—honestly, I immediately started thinking recipe ideas and already couldn’t wait to get work. There were so many gorgeous veggies to choose from, but I decided tackle the zucchinis first. Thus, our first recipe is Baked Zucchini Fries with a Tangy Dipping Sauce.
