We Partner with Local Farms and Bulk Wholesale Outlets
Depending on which season it is, we partner with the most local, organic, pesticide free, sustainable farmers in South Florida. We then purchase in bulk, items that will never grow in Florida such as Grapes, Apples and so on. By purchasing in bulk we are able to pass the discount savings on to our members.
