Door to Door Organics Review

Recently my husband got a new job and one of the very cool benefits was the option to join the companies organic produce co-op. The co-op is through an outside company Door to Door Organics. I jumped on the chance! I love getting good organic produce but hate that I have to go to 3 different stores to get everything I want, which can really set me back physically.



I was directed to their website to sign up, which was super simple. Then I had to make a call directly to them to be added to the companies co-op. (You can join with out a co-op and have it delivered directly to your home if the have a delivery route in your area or it can be sent UPS for a small fee.)

From there I picked my box size (they multiple box choices including fruit and veggie mix or fruit only or veggie only all in different sizes) and how frequently I wanted a delivery.

Each week prior to your delivery they will send you next weeks "menu" and if there is something on your "menu" you don't care for you can substitute another option (this was my primary worry about signing up for a "co-op" because I remember other "co-ops" where it was you got what they had and that was it).

After I placed my order I forgot about it until I got a phone call from my husband saying he had a box of fruit and veggies for me! Yayyy!

Once the box was home I jumped right in to see my goodies. I ordered The Small box which included:
4 - Gala Apples
4 - Oranges
4 - Pears
5 - Bananas
1 - Avocado
2 - Cucumbers
6 - Yams
A head of Romaine Lettuce
A bunch of carrots with the tops on
A container of cherry tomatoes
A stalk of celery
A head of broccoli

Everything was extremely fresh and in great condition. I rinsed everything off since some of it was still dirty from the field, which was actually really comforting to me knowing that even after picked it wasn't "processed" with anything since some other "organic" produce is "cleaned" with more than water before it is sent out, and put it away.

Over the last several days we've been making our way through everything and everything has been great! The pears are some of the best I've had in a long time and my son devoured the bananas. My husband said the apples were extremely juicy. Ans the lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, celery and avocado made a great salad for dinner last night!

We made a great choice in joining the Door to Door Organics, and I am looking forward to my next delivery!
