“Live the good food life.”
~ Full Circle

 

A few days ago, Mom told me about Full Circle, a company that delivers organic produce to your door.  While this wasn’t new to us (we’ve tried Farm Fresh to You, but their quality was a bit lacking), Full Circle had more than just produce – they had other grocery offerings, and a more technologically advanced system.  It sounded pretty interesting, so today we thought we’d give them a try.

There are four different box sizes, which makes it easy to choose the right amount for how many people are in your household and how much you think you’ll be able to use, and the prices aren’t bad.  There’s also a choice between a pay-as-you-go or a pre-payment plan – pretty cool.

I really appreciated the information provided on their vendors.  Buying organic and local is one of the best ways to help effect change in the US food system (watch Food, Inc. and Food Fight for more info!), and it’s great to get more information about the people who are supplying your food.

There is even a section on food storage tips.  I love this!  There’s nothing worse than spending good money on quality (and not cheap) food and then having it go to waste because it wasn’t stored properly.

And this is cool – there are featured items each week, so you can learn more about what’s in season, and Full Circle offers other groceries besides produce.  There are meats, cheeses, and other artisan products.  Fantastic!

There’s also your weekly contents page, which is awesome.  It details what you’ll be getting, and lets you switch out items if you’d like (for those occasions when still haven’t used up the zucchini from last week’s box … ha!).

You can even make permament exemptions (say for example, you’re staying away from starchy produce).  It’s great, because who wants a bunch of stuff that happens to be in season, but you just can’t use?

The other neat thing is the page showing the upcoming delivery schedule.  You can view your current contents page from here to make changes (if your order’s not already being processed), and if you need to skip a week (or a few) you can do that right online.  Very convenient.

This company looks great – I’m excited to try their service.  The one issue I have is that their deliveries right now are scheduled for nighttime – which in a more rural area would work fine; but with us, a box left at the gate overnight will more than likely not be there in the morning – we’ll see how it goes though!  Nom nom nom.

    Really like this service – the quality has been excellent and really appreciate the ability to change my weekly order on-line. As you noted, the only drawback is the early morning delivery. = (
