Who doesn’t? For those who live and work in the Berkeley, there never seems to be enough hours in the day. Shopping for groceries can wind up consuming valuable time you could be spending outdoors, with the family or at that long-dreamed of yoga or ceramics class.
Here at Golden Gate Organics, we’ve made it possible for residents of Berkeley and the surrounding Bay areas to make healthy eating as simple, efficient and time-saving as possible. All you have to do is a shop, submit your order and enjoy weekly deliveries of your favorite fresh food items.
Once you’ve created an account with us, you’re on board to enjoy any number of weekly benefits, from CSA boxes delivered without further action required, to the ability to enjoy door-to-door delivery of your favorite, organic grocery store items.
Best of all, we provide both home and office deliveries. Contact us here at Golden Gate Organics, or explore our website to start shopping for all of the delicious foods you should be eating.
Did you know you’re supposed to eat at least four servings of fruit per day? If you’re like most Americans, you don’t come anywhere near that most weeks. Organic fruit is one of the healthiest ways to boost your intake of vitamins, minerals, and fiber while simultaneously satisfying that wandering sweet tooth. The Golden Gate Organics crew offers four different sizes of organic produce delivery boxes – and you can opt for fruit only boxes upon request.
Tired of fruit wasting away, literally, on your countertop fruit bowl because you’ve purchased too much? Frustrated by the sight of a fruit bowl that’s empty because you didn’t purchase enough? Afraid of trying new fruits in case they aren’t ripe enough to make your taste buds happy?
With Golden Gate Organics weekly, organic fruit box delivery, you’re guaranteed to have just the right amount of ripe, seasonal fruits, along with some new fruit varieties you might not have tried otherwise (pineapple guava, anyone?). Best of all, our fruit boxes only contain fruits grown without harmful herbicides and pesticides so that you can enjoy them with a clear conscious.
We provide boxes that are sized just right for your needs – ranging from Solo Size (18 servings of fruit per week) to Large Box size (45-55 servings per week). Choose the box that makes the most sense for your household, and then upsize or downsize as you see fit.
In addition to fruit delivered to your home, we also provide office fruit delivery, helping your employees make smarter choices when break and lunch time roll around.
The team at Golden Gate Organics is all about inclusion, meaning we don’t discriminate between homes and offices. We consider any doorstep a worthy one when it comes to our door-to-door delivery of organic fruit and vegetable boxes.
Here’s how it works:
1. Create your account with Golden Gate Organics
2. Peruse the organic fruit and veggie box options and choose one that’s right for you.
3. Feel free to substitute items you like for those you don’t (a rare privilege in the CSA organic box world).
4. Use the handy search tool to shop for your favorite grocery items and add them to your existing subscription to save yourself a trip to the grocery store.
5. Enjoy delivery of delicious organic veggies, fruit and grocery products directly to your doorstep.
We can’t wait to make Golden Gate Organics a part of your daily household’s daily life.
Organic vegetables are the stuff healthy lives are made of. In fact, to live a healthy life, experts recommend eating at least three to four servings of vegetables per day. Whether you’re omnivorous or vegan, your body needs the vitamins and nutrients available in fresh vegetables. By focusing on non-GMO, organic and pesticide/herbicide free veggies, you give your body the added benefit of digesting and absorbing the food it needs without doing the extra work to filter toxic chemicals through your system.
From smoothies and salads to soups, main dishes and sides, your organic vegetable box can be put to work for any meal or snack of the day. Like our fruit boxes, our organic vegetable boxes range from Solo Size to Large Size, and you can also select a mix of fruit and veggies if that works better for your family.
Is your business in the business of preparing healthy food? Do you have an office kitchen or cafeteria that makes food for staff, employees, visitors and guests? Our organic fruit and vegetable boxes are a smart way to make sure you’re serving high-quality organic produce at a very reasonable price. They also make it easy to cater to a range of dietary preferences, including vegans and raw foodies.
When’s the last time you had a farm-fresh egg? Organic eggs don’t quite cut it. While they are certainly healthier than the average grocery store eggs, “organic” is not synonymous with farm-fresh, cage-free or a Certified Humane Raised and Handle label. Cooped up hens don’t have access to the wide range of nutrients required to make a truly delicious and nutritious eggs, so their eggs are lackluster when compared to their farm fresh counterparts.
If you want to learn the finer points of why farm fresh eggs are the only eggs you should eat, read, Benefits of Farm Fresh Eggs. When compared with regular, commercial eggs, farm fresh eggs:
· Have more vitamins
· Contain less saturated fats
· Have 1/3rd less bad cholesterol (LDL)
· Contain more good cholesterol (HDL)
· Have higher-levels of healthy, Omega-3 fatty acids
The yolks of farm fresh eggs are notably more bright yellow – often appearing orange. This improves the looks of your breakfast dishes and baked goods, and the extra flavor will definitely delight your palate.
When you sign up to receive your Golden Gate Organics organic vegetable and fruit boxes, don’t forget to add farm fresh eggs as a weekly extra. You’ll never want “regular” eggs again. Our prices beat the store’s by a long-shot, and our eggs come from a real, cage-free, California family farm that prioritizes sustainable farming practices.
Contact Golden Gate Organics to learn more, or simply place your first order and find out for yourself. We look forward to adding you to our Berkeley client family.
That’s a common dilemma for new subscribers. We are just as apt to throw an heirloom variety of something new that isn’t readily available at grocery stores as we are to give you all the seasonal oldies but goodies.
