Building on the success of its Northern California pilot program, Front Door Farms has expanded its service area to include Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. Now customers in metropolitan, suburban and rural communities throughout the western U.S. can enjoy access to farm fresh produce with the convenience of home delivery, according to the Salinas-based company. In addition to the new service areas, the Front Door Farms storefront now includes certified organic fruit and vegetable options.
“Front Door Farms is changing the way people access fresh food,” said Brian Modena, company president. “We’re committed to ensuring every household and business has easy access to responsibly grown farm-fresh produce. By delivering fresh produce straight from the growers, we provide a longer shelf life for our customers, resulting in better value with less food waste.”
Front Door Farms says it delivers produce that is up to 50 percent fresher than traditional grocery stores by working directly with producers and utilizing active cold chain management technologies—giving customers an extra seven to 10 days to use the produce at home.
Front Door Farms says it offers a flexible, mobile-friendly online shopping experience where consumers can shop from an extensive assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables, including specially-crafted theme boxes, bulk boxes and healthy office snacking.
Front Door Farms also recently unveiled a new subscription ordering option as part of its service. Customers can now set up customizable subscription orders by selecting the products they’d like to receive and choosing a delivery schedule that fits their lifestyles.
In order to minimize environmental impact, Front Door Farms works with existing residential and commercial delivery services. These services allow for fast and reliable delivery of Front Door Farms product direct to customers. Each order is hand-selected, packed and prepared for delivery.
There are no expensive membership fees or commitments, the company says. First-time customers can receive 20 percent off their first purchase by using the discount code “FirstTimeFresh.”
