Irv & Shelly's Fresh Picks
Inspired by their own quest to find locally grown, organic food to serve their kids, Irv and Shelly decided to start their own network of independent farmers and deliver their produce to doorsteps. Drawing on their backgrounds in economic development and nonprofit environmental activities, the two connected with suppliers such as Jack Erisman of Goldmine Farms in Pana, Illinois—where beef has been raised USDA-certified and organic since 1993—and Harmony Valley in Viroqua, Wisconsin, where 30 years of experience is put to work cultivating high-quality vegetables and berries. As Irv and Shelly deliver the yield from their partners, they choose the most efficient route so as to reduce their carbon footprint. This means they can’t promise specific delivery times, but most orders arrive in the afternoon in boxes whose client-customized bounty is kept fresh by ice packs.
