Choosing to buy local, organic, and seasonal food is such a positive thing to do for the environment as it cuts down on your carbon footprint and encourages sustainable farming.
Many of the farmers that FarmBox work with are certified organic, and all of them use highly innovative and environmentally sustainable methods – Thorne Family Farms, for example, practise dry farming, which means that they properly prepare the soil and only use the irrigation that nature provides rather than using sprinklers. Apparently the result is a plant with incredible flavour, since the plant puts its energy into growing quality, not quantity – and it’s also better for the environment, too.
FarmBox list all of their producers on their website, and provide in-depth information about their location and farming practises. They evidently have a great, close working relationship with all of them, and enjoy promoting local farms and enterprises. You can find out more about the farmers for FarmBox LA, here, and for FarmBox SF, here.
