FarmBox Direct: Local Seasonal Food Delivered to Your Doorstep
Ashley Tyrner, a fellow single mom, started Farmbox Direct with a vision of taking over the fresh, local food movement. Raised in a family of farmers and living on a farm, Ashley’s summers were spent working on her uncle’s farm in the Midwest. This gave her a solid foundation of learning how to live off the land. After becoming a mother she became vigilant about what she was eating, and what she was feeding her daughter. Like so many of us who want to live a healthy lifestyle, Ashley was a busy NYC working mom and didn’t always have time to make weekly trips to her local farmers market to pick up the freshest local, seasonal and organic ingredients. The idea for FarmBox Direct was born!
With partnerships like GILT, organic local farms, and specialty purveyors, FarmBox makes farm-to-doorstep easy. You can order a box for as little as $32.95 and can customize your box order and substitute up to 5 items. Most CSA boxes or organic delivery boxes won’t allow substitution. Determined to deliver farm fresh food to your doorstep Ashley launched the business using Zip car to make deliveries in NYC and Brooklyn. What a great way for expectant and new moms to get their Farmer’s market quality foods with ease. You can cross yet one more thing off your list!
Ashley who is inspired by her young daughter wants to take FarmBox Direct to a national level with the first stop being LA this summer along with the monthly subscription of artisan products. Ashley says, “I want to provide a “mom and pop feeling” to it and help people reconnect to their roots — good and real food for the body, soul, and mind.” We’re with you sister!
