From Our Editors
As a community-supported agriculture farm, Eat Local Produce focuses on putting organic produce into locals’ hands with a weekly delivery service. Workers harvest fresh fruits and vegetables—grown without chemicals, GMOs, or other harmful acronyms—and pack them into boxes that can be delivered to customers’ doorsteps or picked up directly from the Lake Stevens farm. Since the farm features a rotating selection of more than 50 crops throughout the year, each box comes with storage tips and recipes to help customers properly preserve and prepare each piece of produce they receive.
Eat Local Produce extends its healthy-eating efforts to all socioeconomic statuses by making weekly donations to the local food bank and even accepting electronic-benefit-transfer (EBT) food benefits. The farm also supports the community and environment with living wages for its staff and organic-farming practices that implement renewable and recyclable resources.
