Benefits of being a Harvest Box subscriber

Celebrate Eating Fresh + Seasonal

“Fresh” and “seasonal” are more than just taglines. Freshness is key to nutrition, while seasonality breeds diversity. Both are essential in growing a healthy body, a strong community, and a thriving ecosystem. That’s why we harvest daily, to ensure that only the most delicious, nutrient-dense produce arrives on your family’s table.

Our Farm Is Your Farm

We are committed to a business based on relationships, not mere transactions. Our direct distribution system invites you to build an individual relationship with our farm. We invite you to join us in building a food community based on discovery and delight, creativity and self-sufficiency, optimal health and mutual collaboration.

We’re Here to Help

We understand that joining a CSA means a shift in lifestyle. Our members have traded the convenience of store/online grocery shopping for an upgrade in quality, nutrition, and creativity. Each Harvest Box includes a digest with tips on how to store, prepare and enjoy your weekly offerings, as well as notes from life on the farm.

Support Farmers with a Living Wage

As a Regenerative Organic Certified™ farm, we believe that our planet’s health is interconnected with the health of people. In other words, good stewardship of our ecology naturally requires good stewardship of the people in it. By providing a living wage to our farm team, Harvest Box supports a healthy future for both your family and for the families of the people who grow your food.

Help Steward The Land

Our mission is greater than simply growing the healthiest, most-delicious produce possible for our community. The agricultural practices we use on our Regenerative Organic Certified™ farm nourish the land in return through building soil health, preventing topsoil erosion, protecting our local waterways and wildlife, and even sequestering carbon. Subscribing to Harvest Box is a practical way to give back to the land that feeds us.

Easily Manage Your Subscription

There’s a reason our program continues to grow: our produce is unmatched in freshness and flavor. If at any time you would like to skip a pick-up or pause/cancel your membership, our customer portal gives you complete control over your subscription. Our team is also here to support you in building a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

Love the Harvest Box

I am a Mom of three and for me cooking belongs to my daily routine! I am used to cook with most of the vegetables and fruits but the Harvest box always surprises me with new and different sorts of veggies and fruits and inspires me to try new recipes! Thank you for that Ecology Center!

Good Overall

I love the variety of fruits and veggies but a lot of the leafy veggies and herbs are wilted like they've been in the box for a while.

Life changing

I can’t express how much I love my farm box and the farm stand in Encinitas. The food is so high frequency that I feel immense joy when cooking with it. It adds magic to my life and my table.

Love the fresh box of organics

The staff at our pick up stand in corona Del Mar is outstanding! I love all of the fresh veggies. I don’t always use the lettuces the day of arrival so sometimes I have to throw away the baby gems etc …because they wilt too much. I also don’t like this many onions, I can’t use them in a week so I’m giving away onions to neighbors. I DO love the freshness of everything. And the bouquet of flowers every week is a very special treat. I love the fresh berries, radishes and squash. Just knowing where all of these fruits and vegetables come from makes me super happy!
