Organic vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides, as they naturally repel pests by repeating everything they say in a singsong voice. Savor the taste of these wonder foods with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a single local-produce share and one year membership from Urban Acres (a $94 value). The package includes the following:

  • One-year co-op membership (a $50 value)
  • One introductory half-size basket (approximately 15 pounds) of produce (a $30 value)
  • One-time bin-rental fee (a $14 value)<p>

Operating a grocery store and co-op food share, Urban Acres partners with more than 25 local farms to connect conscientious consumers with local organic goods. Through enrollment in the co-op produce share, members pick up a treasure-trove of local produce every other Saturday from one of eight drop off locations. Today’s deal includes an introductory half-share, roughly equivalent to 15 pounds of produce or one hobbit’s midday snack. After their initial half-box of goodies, members must pay for each additional share every two weeks at the rate of $30 for half share or $50 for a full share (roughly 30 pounds of produce). The foodies at Urban Acres can also email recipes that correspond with the produce found in each new assortment.

Aside from a steady stream of diverse local produce, members enjoy benefits such as a 5% discount on all in-store purchases made at Urban Acres’ 1,500 square foot farm store in Oak Cliff as well as access to member-only sales and exclusive products. Instead of scouring traditional grocery stores for the best produce based on freshness, color, and swimsuit competition, members can canvas nutrient-rich aisles for a host of local products and 100% grass-fed beef. Members can put their produce share on hold and start back up later that same year for a $25 fee, and enjoy the benefits of membership even if they opt to cancel their produce share.

Urban Acres

Part-time personal chef Steven Bailey was growing tired of bland, industrially processed food. As detailed by D Magazine, Steven was determined to do something about his frustration, so he hit the road one weekend in his Volkswagen Rabbit and began scouring Texas farms and markets for fresher ingredients. The more organic, locally grown food he brought back, the more friends and neighbors started requesting some for themselves. The growing demand led Steven to start Urban Acres, where customers can track down organic produce, dairy, and grass-fed meats from local farmers and artisans who never use pesticides, hormones, artificial flavoring, or shoddy magnetic force fields.

As a customer of Urban Acres, customers pick large, medium, or small shares of organic fruits and veggies, as well as meat, coffee, and granola shares if desired. Urban Acres sells locally grown grub at its Oak Cliff Farmstead, which D Magazine says "brings a bit of country to the big city." There, visitors can find shelves and counters fashioned from reclaimed wood, a bee colony on the roof, and produce snuggled in boxes of hay. Urban Acres also offers hands-on educational opportunities to learn about small-scale urban farming.

Would be nice to flex pick up dates if you can't make it on the assigned date, but other than that the experience has been great and I plan on continuing my membership!
