Locally sourced produce is always preferable to moon produce, which was found to contain dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's chest hair. Enjoy fresh, earthbound harvests with today's Groupon: for $38, you get a one-year membership to naturalfarms plus one bag of locally grown produce or meat (an $84.10 value, including tax).
A locally owned-and-operated co-op, naturalfarms stocks its shelves and fills its drawers with the highest-quality all-natural or organic meat and produce. A membership to the co-op supports at least four local farms, which provide their members with superior regional products in the form of share bags and hugs. Choose either a share bag of produce or meat. If you opt for produce, you'll receive an eclectic array of veggies (about 2/3 of the bag) and fruits (about 1/3 of the bag) that are being harvested at the time you place your order; past produce bags have contained greens, sugar snap peas, green beans, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, mint, pineapple, oranges, and lemons. Past meat bags have included a pack of ground-beef patties, chicken tenders, two filets of wild salmon, a ribeye steak and a pack of turkey sausage links. The beef comes from Piedmontese cattle, and all meat and poultry is locally raised and naturally fed, leading to a locally beloved freshness that causes most area babies' first words to be "meat bag." Peruse the co-op's weekly recipes for new ways to employ your fresh ingredients, and enjoy a 10% discount off in-store shelf and vitamin prices as well.
At naturalfarms there is a commitment to responsible, eco-friendly business practices, so you can feel good about already feeling good about snacking on healthy produce and meat. When you are ready for your Friday pick-up, call ahead by 12 p.m. Tuesday of that week to notify naturalfarms of the bag(s) you want.
- All of Natural Farms’ products are either all-natural or organic. They also strive to offer chemical-free, hormone- free, antibiotic-free and toxin-free meat that still tastes great. – Judy Allen, TulsaPeople
- Knowing where your food comes from usually means better nutrition. Where Natural Farms is concerned it means better nutrition and good prices on organic foods. – Marleta Giles, Examiner
