How to buy local, be frugal AND eat organic

Farm Fresh to You box
By now, most people who live in California have become aware of the fact that something is going on with our food system and it is very wise to eat organic fruits and veggies whenever possible.

The very best place to get those fruits and veggies is at your local farmer's market. Let's face it, we need to support the local farmer's that are going out of their way to continue to produce food that isn't toxic to our health.

But, it isn't always convenient to get to the farmer's market or maybe their isn't one near you.

Well, now there is a great service available to Southern and Northern California - Farm Fresh to You.

You sign up for the service and box of locally grown, organic food is delivered to your door. How easy is that?

Well, it gets even easier and better. You can tell them whether you want mostly fruits or mostly veggies. You can tell them what you DON'T want (no kale for me, thanks). There are small boxes and large boxes.

Plus, if you use special code 6164 and tell them my name (Bobbi Brunoehler) you will get $10 off your first box and I will get a credit on my next box.

You can get a box once a month or once a week. You can order just one box and try it out.

I love this service. The food stays fresh so much longer because it is picked right before it is delivered to you.

So, where is the frugal part? Fresh, organic food is much more filling and nutritious so you don't need as much of it. Plus, you save on medical bills because, well, this stuff is actually healthy for you.

NorCal folks - ask about adding some fresh eggs to your order. SoCal folks - they say that fresh eggs will come soon.
