Organic vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides, as they naturally repel pests by threatening to spoil popular TV dramas that the bugs haven't caught up on. Show good taste with this Groupon.
$17 for a Prepackaged Organic Produce Box ($33.95 Value)
A medium harvest box of produce from Skarsgard Farms contains an assortment of organic fruit, vegetables, and flowers that varies from week to week. In addition to selections from the farm itself, you might get peppers and avocados from Mexico, 2 pounds of Arizona grapefruits, or California-grown red potatoes and yellow onions. Skarsgard Farms sources its produce from a diverse group of regional organic growers, which allows them to stock only the freshest produce year-round. The online ordering process allows you to customize the contents of your box, and you can keep tabs on your scheduled delivery date.
In 1906, Tollef Skarsgard emigrated from Norway to pursue an American education. After attending school—and learning English along the way—he started a farm in North Dakota, which he first seeded in the spring of 1912. One hundred years and four generations later, Skarsgard Farms continues to produce a wide variety of crops. Tollef’s great-grandson, Monte Skarsgard, now oversees an upgraded version of the estate, where he harvests organic fruit and vegetables, and dresses scarecrows in designer overalls. The farm also distributes prepackaged produce from a variety of regional organic farmers year-round through an online delivery service called the Harvest Box Program.
