Arganica stocks holiday dinners across the mid-Atlantic with a convoy of local turkeys and regionally harvested groceries. Holiday chefs eschew the retail turkey stampede as Arganica’s poultry pros bring award-winning birds straight to local doorsteps. Raised in a lofty, open-air barn under the trained gaze of a PhD nutritionist, the free-range turkeys at Maple Lawn Farm become meaty without the use of hormones.
For succulent side dishes, the produce-delivery menu is updated fortnightly, presenting patrons with an enormous à la carte selection, as well as surprise-laden produce crates that might contain heirloom tomatoes, gala apples, eggplant, and mustache-free yukon potatoes. The edibles are packed into handmade, sustainable wooden crates, and liquid products, such as milk or seltzer, are stored in reusable glass containers.
Arganica’s delivery system allays the gas-guzzling and parking woes of regular trips to the store, in addition to preserving farmland and enriching the local economy by doing business with community producers. A fleet of comestible convoys makes deliveries to the Baltimore area on Sunday mornings. Produce pursuers should check the delivery-area map to ensure groceries are capable of reaching their kitchen, outdoor camp stove, or plastic toy oven.
