With Dominion Harvest you can sign up and order a 1 of 4 different boxes of fresh food ranging from 10-11 types of greens and vegetables, to one with enough greens, vegetables, raw milk, bread, and meat for a family of four. You can choose weekly or bi-weekly delivery, and there is no sign up fee. You can cancel your participation at anytime. The cost for the 2 smaller boxes is $37. The largest box is $67.
Dominion Harvest focuses on delivering to urban and suburban areas to maximize efficiency. To determine if you are eligible for delivery you just type in your zip code. I tried out 23227, 23225, and 23229. All were current delivery areas. Adding to the convinence are insulated, reusable containers containing ice packs Dominion Harvest guarantees will keep your food safely chilled even during the summer for 10 hours. You can also add on specialty items each week, and notify them of any allergies to have your box altered to suit your needs.
The one flaw that I see on the website is the apparent lack of clear sourcing information. The site states that they track the source of each product so you can find out where each item came from by contacting them. This part doesn't sound like the most convenient system for consumers who actually care where their food is coming from. One improvement they say will be in place as of the season starting May 2010 is a Dominion Harvest blog that will allow customers to read about, and directly contact the producers with whom Dominion Harvest is working.
I plan to give it try for one week in May and see how it goes. I'll keep you posted. To check out our other related post simple type Dominion Harvest into our search window.
