our values

organics is a commitment & we are committed

ORGANIC CERTIFIED ONLY

We are hardcore organic and we only use certified organic growers. We’ve helped get over 5 farmers certified organic! It’s the only way we roll.

NO MEXICAN IMPORTS

We do not support Mexico Organics and you will never find them in our box. We believe in fair living wages and do not believe in the exploitation of workers.

AS LOCAL AS POSSIBLE

75% of the box contents are from growers here in SB county. The rest is from Bakersfield area where they grow the crops we just can’t grow here in SB like peaches, grapes, and corn and a lot of potatoes.

RE-USE & REDUCE WASTE

We re-use everything, over and over again. Every wax box is given back to the farmers for re-use, every strawberry basket is re-used, and we are proud of it!

Six years ago, Jason and I were gifted an heirloom wooden wagon from my dad, Tom Shepherd. We cleaned up the little corner on the block in the heat of Carpinteria, rehabilitated the wagon, and opened shop. We provide our community with local, fresh, organic produce - only the best. We so appreciate the community that helps keep our business thriving. We have rapidly expanded and now provide:

ORGANIC FARM BOXES - STRAIGHT TO YOUR DOOR!

Our approach is very hands on - we make sure to nurture our relationships with our farmers and we hand pack/inspect each box of produce.
