View Full Version : Mail Order Organic Produce?
10-14-2009, 10:55 AM
Hi, guys. :) I live in Idaho--a small town, at that, and am having a HARD time finding organic produce, beyond a sack-full of apples and maybe carrots. When I do find organics, they are overpriced and not fresh. Are there any farms that you guys know about where you can order fresh organic produce to be shipped to your house? If I'm gonna go big on this raw thing, I want to actually allow my body the opportunity to do it's healing thing, and I'm concerned that, while I'm not eating meat anymore, I have been eating alot of non-organic produce. Which is probably better than my old S-A-D...but still. You know what I mean, right? :rolleyes:

It's really good that you're moving in the right direction!
Do they have The Farmer's Market anywhere surrounding your area? A lot of people like going to these.
You can try to find out if they have Co-op in your area. I'm going to try to find out where I can locate one is in my area too.
I wish you the best in healing well!
Veganforlife, Thank You! :) This in my area,
I want to support the local farmers in any way I can.
Again, thank you!!!

This link (http://www.greenpeople.org/csa.htm) shows some Idaho farms that are involved with community supported agriculture.
Here (http://www.localharvest.org/search-csa.jsp?scale=&lat=&lon=&x=&y=&ty=6&zip=&st=14&but.x=35&but.y=12&but=s) is another list.

hey--is there anywhere you can grow stuff? if youre interested, there are things you can grow even over the winter; kale will overwinter in a lot of climates, and corn salad (mache) and chickweed im told will even grow through snow... especially if you could invest in a small greenhouse, even a homemade one. also, doing some sprouting in your own kitchen (lentils, etc) will help supplement your organic veggies. even if you cant get organic, if you can find a local grower to get some of your stuff from, a lot of them may be pesticide free, even though they may have used a commercial fertilizer or whatever. Alot of veggies dont need to be sprayed, which for me is a more major concern than chemical fertilizers. of course i still prefer organic, but sometimes just cant get it, so at least if you can get local, its still better than the stuff from the shops, and maybe fresher (and no doubt cheaper) than having stuff shipped in.
